Apart from a few minor changes to the cabin, the Ciaz will get more features. It could get cruise control as well. The Ciaz diesel is sold with Suzuki’s SHVS mild hybrid system, but the tech will now be available in the petrol version as well. The new car could feature the 104hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine instead of the earlier 1.4-litre unit.
This new engine will also feature under the hood of the next-gen Ertiga. The SHVS system comes with start-stop technology and uses an integrated starter generator (ISG). Maruti is expected to continue offering the hybrid system on the 1.3-litre diesel engine as well.
