Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest automobile manufacturer has been the first choice of the country men for the choice of the company whose car will be adorning their driveway. But that has been the case only if they’ve wanted to buy a hatchback across any segment. The company has pretty much been a failure in the sedan and SUV segments. We brought to you the company’s plans for its SUVs some days ago and today we have for you the pictures and details about the company’s upcoming C-segment sedan which will be taking charge from the present SX4. The new sedan codenamed YL1 or 2014 Maruti SX4 is expected to go on sale sometime next year and will be gunning for the throats of Verna, City, Vento and the likes.

Suzuki has showcased a close to production concept of the upcoming Sx4 / Ciaz at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. The Suzuki Alivio Concept is much closer to production than the Ciaz concept showcased at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo in February. It does retain some concept design features like the front and rear bumpers and the silver side cladding, but apart from that most features on the car will make it to production. Check out the images below:
According to Suzuki China, the concept showcases a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol motor mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The concept looks closer to how the final product will look like, with the wide-dual-barrel headlamps, production-spec ORVMs and tail-lamps. What do you think?

Patent photos of the 2014 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz or the 2014 Maruti SX4 have been leaked from China. The photos show how the production variant of the car would look like, obviously some details are not complete but the overall design is final.
What are the changes as compared to the Ciaz Concept? Well, first of all the car does keep most of the design features from the Ciaz Concept; it loses the sleek ORVMs, the super-low ride-height and the stylish front fog lamps. The car does get the dual-exhaust set in the rear bumper by the looks of things, which is nice touch. The grille, the design on the front and rear lamps, the overall silhouette remain the same as the concept too. We will have to wait and see the car in flesh to get a clearer picture. Like what you see? Let us know in the comments section below.

Under the hood of 2014 Maruti SX4 be a 1.4 litre petrol motor that is present in the Ertiga and joining it will be a 1.3 litre Fiat Multijet turbo diesel engine that powers the current generation SX4. The variants of offer will be LXi, LDi, VXi, VDi, ZXi and ZDi which is the traditional nomenclature for Maruti cars. Hydraulic engine mounts alongside heavy damping are expected to be ones taking charge of NVH control levels.
The ones dealing with the tarmac will be 16 inchers on 195 section rubber in the top end variants while the base variants will do away with 15 inchers. It will follow a dual-tone scheme on the inside with beige and black being the two colours. The car is expected to come with quite an attractive designing up front as well as on the rear. Maruti might just bring in this car as its flagship C segment sedan and reposition the SX4as a sedan between Dzire and YL1.
