Maruti has showcased Gold Edition packs for the Ciaz and Baleno at the Auto Expo 2023. In an attempt to ward off the competition slightly, Ciaz will get some gold highlights on the exterior to rival the likes of the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, VW Virtus and Skoda Slavia. On the other hand, the gold highlights on the Baleno will further enhance its appeal as it is already the best-selling product in its segment. Here are all the details.

Maruti Ciaz Gold Edition
Ciaz is a mid-size sedan that has seen depleting sales over the last few years. Hence, to make it slightly more refreshed, the gold highlights on the exterior instead of the chrome are aimed at offering the customers a unique design pattern. What is more interesting is the fact that even the alloy wheel spokes are painted gold which is definitely something unique. The sedan will continue to come powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 103 hp and 138 Nm of peak power and torque.
