Speculations are on a continuous rise, contemplating the launch of the Facelift Maruti Ciaz. Now, according to a few media reports, it is likely that Maruti will launch the Ciaz Facelift in India this August. Earlier we had every reason to believe that we will get the first glimpse of the new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo. But, the E-Survivor and the Vision S along with the new Swift were the stars of the show. That said, we are eagerly waiting for the debut of the new Ciaz, and we know that you are too. In order to shed some more light on the new Ciaz, here we bring you every detail that you would want to know about the update of this popular c-segment sedan. Read along!
New Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift Launch Date
According to unconfirmed media reports, it is likely that the new Ciaz will launch in India this August. Going by that bookings will commence from the month of July. The Ciaz will continue to retail from Maruti Nexa dealerships. It switched from the Arena to Nexa dealership chain last year.
New Maruti Ciaz Facelift Price
With the update, we expect the Maruti Ciaz to continue to retail within the same price range as it does now. Currently, the base variant costs INR 7.83 Lakh and the top spec trim costs INR 11.62 lakh. That said, with the introduction of a new diesel engine, the prices of the diesel derivatives might go up slightly.
New Maruti Ciaz Facelift Engine Specifications
The petrol derivative of the New Maruti Ciaz will continue to come with a 1.4-litre VVT engine. This engine produces 91 BHP of power along with 130 NM of peak torque. It gets a 5-speed manual transmission along with an automatic option. Currently, the diesel derivative of the Ciaz comes with a 1.3-litre DDiS unit. This engine produces 88.5 BHP along with 200 Nm of peak torque. Time and again this engine is criticised for its lack of power. As a result of this, Maruti will introduce a more powerful 1.5-litre diesel engine which it is developing in-house.
New Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift Mileage
Expect a mileage of 20.73 km/l from the 1.4-litre petrol engine. The current 1.3-litre diesel engine gives a mileage of 28.09 km/l. The new 1.5-litre mill will offer slightly lower levels of fuel efficiency. That said, expect them to be above 27 km/l.
New Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift Exterior
The new Ciaz is essentially a Facelift. As a result of this, the exterior profile will remain largely identical to the current model. That said, Maruti will slightly redesign important aesthetic bits. For instance, expect the front bumper to get a new design. Fog lamp housing along with the grille will feature a new look. Headlights will remain similar in shape but could get new details. The side profile will remain identical. However, the sedan can get new alloy wheels. Towards the rear, the tail-lamps will get new design elements. However, the boot-lid design will largely remain the same.
New Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift Interiors
The cabin of the Facelift Ciaz, just like its exterior profile, will remain identical to the current spec model. It will continue to come with the same dual tone colour scheme. The instrument cluster will be revised to freshen up the cabin. As far as the design an layout of the dashboard is concerned, it will remain the same. Maruti might add certain wood or silver accents to add to the visual appeal. The seat fabric could see a new design. Rest, all the major attributed will remain the same.
New Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift Features
The new Maruti Ciaz will continue to come with features like projector headlamps, LED daytime running lights and LED tail-lamps. Top-end variant comes with alloy wheels, a touchscreen infotainment display, automatic climate control to name a few. Also on offer is rear view camera with parking sensors, cruise control, smoked headlamps and a possible introduction of a sunroof.
