The first vehicle on this list of cars used by the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is the Maruti Ciaz. There are many images of the FM arriving to work in a white Ciaz. We understand that this might not be her private car but the one provided to her by the government. The Ciaz comes powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 103 hp and 138 Nm of peak power and torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox and the prices range from Rs 9.20 lakh to Rs 12.19 lakh, ex-showroom.

Hindustan Ambassador

Next, Nirmala Sitharaman has also been spotted making public appearances in the vintage Hindustan Ambassador. Now, the Ambassador was the prevalent choice of rides among government officials in our country since time immemorial. In fact, a couple of decades ago, government officials were given this car to make official commutes. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the Finance Minister also used it for some time. However, the production of the Ambassador ended in 2014 and the government decided to offer new and modern vehicles to its officials.
