Owners of the new Maruti Ciaz diesel can check if their car is affected or not by visiting the official website of Maruti Ciaz. There under the ‘IMP. Customer Info’ you have to just enter you Ciaz’s chassis number. You can find your vehicle chassis number on the vehicle ID plate. The same is also written on your car’s registration documents.
Maruti Suzuki introduced the new Ciaz in India during the month of August this year. It now comes with a slightly redesigned front end and several other minor feature enhancements. The headlights, in the top-end variant, are now full LEDs, in addition to LED fog-lamps.
Apart from these cosmetic changes, the facelifted Ciaz also comes with an all-new mild-hybrid petrol engine. This is Maruti’s all-new 1.5-litre K15B unit which comes with a mild-hybrid system as standard across all variants. It replaces the earlier 1.4-litre unit and generates 105 BHP of power. As standard, it comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox. There is a 4-speed automatic variant also on offer. The diesel engine remains the same as before.
