Maruti Ciaz Facelift Launch Details, Expected Prices, Specs, Mileage


UPDATE- New 2017 Maruti Ciaz Facelift Unveiled

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 (ALSO READ: 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 August 2017

The new model 2017 Maruti Ciaz launch is likely to take place in August, 201. Maruti recently shifted the sales of the Ciaz to its Nexa outlets. Even the Ciaz facelift will use these Nexa dealerships for retail. Recently, slightly camouflaged test mules were spotted testing, thereby indicating that we aren’t too far from the launch date.

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. The Ciaz, since it is now being sold through the Nexa sales channel, adopts a new variant nomenclature. There are 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.

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 one of the most fuel efficient cars 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. The test mules spotted recently had black tape masking bits of the front and rear bumpers. This means, as we mentioned earlier, the changes will be minor.


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. Updates will include an updated instrument console with a new high-res MID.


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.

  9. I have already done a trail run and all but in mind having a doubt if i should take ciaz within a month or its worthy to wait for sometime. Please help me i am damn confused.

  10. Mr Chauhan, hv enquired at Nexa showroom. They are refusing any facelift is going to take plc. Kindly confirm the facelift and its month of launch.

  11. Hi Richa,
    It’s for sure that the facelift will come in coming months. However. the showroom people might not be aware as the car is still some time away from its launch. Moreover, generally showroom guys don’t speak of an upcoming product as it might harm their immediate sales prospects. Anyway, going by the facelifts Maruti generally launches, the Ciaz facelift won’t have a lot much more than the current model. So maybe you can buy the current model in case you’re in a hurry to purchase a car.


  12. Waiting for 1.6 petrol automatic to be launched, also need to improve on the ground clearance

  13. It’s wonderful looks & features. I want to book a crazy facelift with some of my interiors and colour. If it’s possible and how can I book. Ciaz should be in black colour with rusty colour interior. Thxs

    I want to book CIAZ as soon as possible . But i am confused that whether i should wait for the new facelift or not.? I could wait a month or too if it is having a sunroof and some more additional features.
    Kindly tell me the new upcoming features (sunroof) and the launch date
    because i am in a hurry to buy CIAZ.!

  15. Hi, there are really slim chances that Ciaz will get a sunroof. Also, I don’t think it will launch in next few months. Currently, Maruti is busy readying a facelift for the SCross. So you may go ahead and buy the Ciaz now. It’s a really good car.


  16. Why dont ciaz be offered with 6speed manual transmission,unlike the other rivals of its mid size sedan cars. The car performance is good enough,and we do expect a more powerful engine and bhp of the ciaz,so that this car would give more tuff competition to its rivals. I would like to see 1600cc and 118bhp of s-cross variant to be inbuilted in ciaz. I might be the first buyer if this car is produced with those features mentioned above.

  17. CIAZ is gone 1.5 Lakh expensive after GST , so no use of buying CIAZ which has smaller engine and less brand value as compare to HONDA, Better Go for Honda City , Because prices are similar now after GST.

    Honda City is Cheaper now and best product…

  18. Hello
    I wish ṭo buy ciaz automatic alpha
    Fo you think maruti is really coming up with a facelift in 2-3 months ?
    If it comes with minor changes I don’t care
    But if mul launches it with cvt gearbox and a sunroof I ll regret buying the current model .
    Please advise .

  19. Can we expect a Ciaz Diwali launch with atleast Cruise control, rain sensing wipers and auto head lamp? All these features are already available in other cars like SCross and Brezza. I don’t think sunroof will be coming in this launch as its not something existing in other Maruti Suzuki cars.
    I spoke to one of the sales guy from regular Maruti dealership, he told that when the decision of moving Ciaz to Nexa was made it was supposed to be with additional features but they did the move with just an additional color. So I am hoping there may be chances of a upgrade soon.

  20. It is likely to come with rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps and cruise control too. Launch will likely take place next year.

  21. All the features missing in Ciaz are now available on Verna facelift. I think it’s high time Maruti announces a facelift soon. Verna coming on August 22nd and Ford launching EcoSport in September.

  22. Right from beginning I am waiting for the ciaz diesel automatic, can we expect it. Why cannot the bring auto shift in diesel when all competitors are coming with one, even s-cross has a auto shift diesel. When can we expect in ciaz, I am waiting for it eagerly.
    Should I wait or proceed for buying any other brand. Pl reply thankyou

  23. I m waiting for new ciaz with sunroof & crude control. I should wait or else I go for any other brand. Reply it.

  24. As per local Nexa salesman I heard about Ciaz facelift expected in November. Sunroof may not be there but cruise control will be. Again even he was telling based upon what he heard from others in the dealership. officially they get to know details only 15days before the actual launch.

  25. Dear yathartha chauhan
    Can I expect a diesel automatic in ciaz please let me know any point in waiting, I have test driven the manual diesel version and loved the car but owing to the traffic congestion I wish to go for the auto option and have lot of traveling so can’t think of petrol auto. Any point in waiting or should I go for the other brand pl let me know sir.
    Thank you

  26. Hi Joseph,
    A Diesel Automatic Ciaz won’t launch anytime soon, at least not this year for sure. I think you can look at the Hyundai Verna Auto Diesel in case you need to buy a new car in coming months.


  27. Hi Yatharth Chauhan,

    When are we expecting the Ciaz facelift to be launched in India? Will it come with Cruise control and Sunroof in top trims of petrol version? Will it be similar to the Alivio Pro?


  28. Hi Ivan,
    The facelift should launch after its debut at the Auto Expo 2018. We do expect it to have cruise control and sunroof. Yes, it will be very similar to the Alivio Pro.


  29. i want ciaz facelift to look like same as aunthetic sedan model advertisement,similar as auto expo maroon colour model with integrated day time runnig light like audi and sleek rear view model and led brake light,if maruti can’t provide this model in india than shame on maruti think we are not china we like reliable look in model.think maruti and do the needful immeditly,at least one model for me.

  30. We have confirmed news as well as photographs about swift facelift launching during auto expo but no news about Ciaz Alivio pro based facelift. Not sure if it going to be launched during Auto Expo. Anyone got any news?

  31. None whatsoever. The company is currently busy with readying the new Swift for its India launch. We should get to see the Ciaz facelift at the Expo though. Its India debut is likely to give us more details on the launch timeline.


  32. As per the latest images of Ciaz testing in NCR seems like its the same old tail lamp cluster and not the one similar to the Alivio Pro. The November photo shows the front grill and if we assume there is nothing extra stuffed inside the camouflage then its also different than the Alivio Pro’s Audi like grill. I spoke to a dealer and he told there may not be any visible design changes other than new features added like Sunroof, Cruise control etc on the Alpha variant. He was asking me to book the 2018 Ciaz or get the 2017 with discount. Zigwheel’s they say its not even going to be part of Auto expo. Yatharth any comments?

  33. Ciaz facelift missing in Auto Expo 2018. Looks like the plan of facelift has been postponed as the sales are still going good for current Ciaz. So no facelift any time soon I guess. Now lets see the pricing of Yaris will it push Maruti to think for a facelift.
