We are reporting LIVE from Auto Expo 2014 and seen here are fresh images of the new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz concept sedan. The Ciaz concept sedan is likely to spawn the SX4 Sedan replacement that is expected to go on sale in India late next year. As can be seen in these images, the Ciaz looks not even a wee-bit similar to the SX4 sedan on sale here and we belive that the new car’s exterior design will come across as more appealing than that of Maruti’s current upper C segment sedan.
Unveiling the new SX4 S-Cross crossover and the new Ciaz sedan, Mr. Toshihiro Suzuki, Executive Vice President, Suzuki Motor Corporation said, “The two cars that we unveil today follow the footsteps of the iconic Suzuki Swift. These models are designed to meet the varied requirements of discerning customers around the world.While the SX4 S-CROSS is a real crossover with authentic performance, the Concept CIAZ is designed to meet the growing demand in C-Segment market in India, China and elsewhere.”
On the occasion Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director and CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “Concept CIAZ and SX4 S-CROSS are two premium segment global offerings. This rich line up will strengthen our product portfolio and prepare us for the future.”
Reinforcing Maruti Suzuki’s strong customer connect he added, “The vehicles that you see here today reflect our thought and belief. If you like them, they may be amongst you on the Indian roads, in future. As a customer, your right judgment has guided us over the past 3 decades. We promise to bring exciting and relevant products, as you need them.”
