Maruti Ciaz Facelift Launch in First Half of 2017

0

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 rivals planning new models or updates for 2017, Maruti will also roll out a facelift next year. 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.

Model Expected Launch Date
New 2017 Maruti Ciaz First Half 2017

Maruti will launch the Ciaz facelift in the first half 2017. With two new launches already lined up for the first quarter of 2017, the Ciaz launch is likely to take place in the second quarter of 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 could use the launch of the Ciaz facelift as an opportunity to shift its sales from standard dealerships to Nexa dealerships.

According to reports, Honda is planning to roll out the City facelift in the first half of 2017. Also, 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 next year.

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. 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.

2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift Design

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.
