The updated Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is one of the most awaited launches of this year. Recently, we spied a Ciaz test mule undergoing testing on the National Highway-8 (Read about it here). The latest news is that the facelifted Maruti Suzuki Ciaz was spotted in Spain. This upcoming model will continue to use the same mechanicals and underpinnings. But it will feature a range of cosmetic updates that once again will make Ciaz exciting enough. Maruti Suzuki added a new variant to the Ciaz line-up this month itself (Sportier Ciaz S launched-Read here).
We are expecting to see a sportier bumper and new front grille. The spy shots indicate that the front grill should be larger than before. The headlights will be carried over from the current model. However, the company might offer LED lights with daytime-running-lights. Next change can be expected at the rear, where the bumpers will be redesigned.
Although the interiors are not visible in the spy shots, the interiors might be slightly tweaked. Expect new upholstery material and dashboard inserts. Also, the infotainment system on the new Ciaz should come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Engine and Gearbox Options-
As the mechanicals of the new Ciaz is believed to be same as the current model, there are two engine options- 1.4-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel. The petrol engine makes 94PS of power and 134 Nm of torque, while the diesel motor makes 90PS of power and 200 Nm of torque. Talking of the gearbox options, there is a slight confusion. Presently, the Ciaz comes with a 5-Speed manual gearbox. However, the new Ciaz could also be offered with a CVT gearbox as hinted in our previous Maruti Ciaz spy story (Read- Ciaz coming with CVT gearbox?)
