Maruti Ciaz Facelift Launch Soon!

23

So far, the Maruti Ciaz has done a great job of representing MSIL in the premium segment. It has been consistently outperforming the Honda City in terms of sales (Maruti Ciaz vs Honda City). With its major rival, the City, receiving a facelift for 2017, Maruti will launch a facelift of Ciaz in coming weeks. Updates will be merely cosmetic along with some additions to the features list. The 2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift launch will take place in the first half of 2017. We’re not expecting a major hike in the prices of the Ciaz. Read on for more on the upcoming 2017 Maruti Ciaz facelift.

2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift Launch in India

New 2017 Maruti Ciaz April 2017

Maruti will launch the Ciaz facelift in the first half 2017. The new model 2017 Maruti Ciaz launch is likely to take place in April, 2017. Initially, Maruti had plans to sell the Ciaz through the Nexa sales channel. However, since there were delays in Nexa’s launch, the Ciaz is sold through normal Maruti Suzuki dealerships despite being a premium offering. Maruti will use the launch of the Ciaz facelift as an opportunity to shift its sales from standard dealerships to Nexa dealerships.

Honda has already launched the City facelift. Maruti will bring the new Ciaz possibly in April, 2017. Last but certainly not the least, Hyundai will bring the new Verna to India by mid 2017. Which means this particular segment is all set to witness a lot of activity this year.

2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift Price in India

Minimum Rs. 7.50 lakh
Maximum Rs. 10.50 lakh

Prices should remain more or less the same. The top end variants could get more expensive thanks to the addition of new features. According to new info, the Ciaz, since it will be sold through the Nexa sales channel, will adopt a new variant nomenclature. There will be five trims on offer – Sigma, Zeta, Delta, Alpha and S. The ‘S’ trim is nothing but the ‘RS’ trim. Presumably, Maruti wants to reserve the ‘RS’ badge for higher performance variants like the Baleno RS only. Hence, the switch to S from RS. Here’s the current Maruti Ciaz price list –

Petrol

Maruti Ciaz (Ex-Showroom Delhi Price)
VXi Rs. 7.53 lakh
VXi Plus Rs. 8.12 lakh
ZXi Rs. 8.78 lakh
AT VXi Plus Rs. 9.29 lakh
ZXi Plus Rs. 9.34 lakh
RS ZXi Plus (discontinued) Rs. 9.48 lakh

Mechanically, the upcoming Ciaz facelift will remain the same as the current car. It will continue with the current set of 1.4 L petrol and 1.3 L diesel engines. These engines might not be the most powerful in the segment, but they are very frugal. There are no plans of introducing the S-Cross’ 1.6 L diesel. Only the petrol Delta, Zeta and Alpha trims will be offered with a 4-speed automatic transmission option.

2017 Maruti CIaz Facelift Mileage

Petrol Diesel
Mileage 20.73 KMPL (MT)/19.12 KMPL (AT) 28.09 KMPL

In fact, the 1.3 L Diesel, aided by Suzuki’s SHVS mild hybrid tech, makes the Ciaz the most fuel efficient car on sale in India. It returns a claimed mileage of 28.09 KMPL. Even the petrol engine offers an average fuel mileage of around 20 KMPL.

2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift Design Changes

Like most Maruti facelifts, the Ciaz will not be getting a comprehensive overhaul. Instead, it will feature minor cosmetic updates to the exteriors. These changes could be similar to the China-spec Alivio sedan seen in pictures here. The front bumper will get some additional chrome garnish, and so will the rear bumper. There could be a slightly redesigned grille on offer as well.

We’re not expecting Maruti to make major changes to the interiors of the Ciaz. The same black beige cabin from the current car will be carried over to the new model. However, Maruti could add a few features including a sunroof. The Ciaz’s cabin is already pretty rich in terms of the equipment on offer.

2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift Engine and Transmission

The 1.4 L Petrol and 1.3 L Diesel engines from the current car will be carried over. The petrol unit is available with an optional 4-speed automatic transmission as well. There is no diesel automatic variant on offer. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard across the range. There have been rumours suggesting the Ciaz will receive the S-Cross’ 1.6 L Diesel as well. However, there is no official word on that yet. Thanks to Suzuki’s mild hybrid tech, the Ciaz SHVS diesel returns 28.09 KMPL overall making it the most fuel-efficient car in the country. It also helps the Ciaz avail tax benefits under the Government’s FAME initiative that promotes Hybrid and electric cars.
