The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has been spied many times on the Indian soil now. With the launch date inching closer, Maruti Suzuki has ramped up the production of the Ciaz to avoid any delays and waiting periods. The upcoming sedan from India’s largest car maker has been spied ahead of its launch which will happen in a few weeks time.
Maruti Suzuki has stopped the production of the SX4 sedan. It will replace the SX4 and will be slotted higher up in the segment. Considering the dimensions and the interiors of the Ciaz, the car may bridge the gap between mid-size sedans and executive sedans. As can be seen in the pictures here, the rear doors appears massive which hints towards more rear legroom.
As already reported by us, the car maker will be launching the Ciaz with a petrol and a diesel engine. Maruti will be plonking the 1.4 liter K-Series petrol engine from the Ertiga. Diesel engine will be the popular 1.3 liter Multijet sourced from Fiat. Both the motors will come mated to a manual transmission, and an automatic transmission will also be offered on the petrol model. Reports suggest that Maruti Suzuki will not offer the Ciaz with an AMT in an attempt to position it as a premium product. Maruti Suzuki will be launching the Ciaz in three trims- VXi/VDi, VXi+/VDi+ and ZXi/ZDi.
The Ciaz will not only be offered with more space, but also more features and equioment. The Ciaz will likely be equipped with features like projector headlamps, rear aircon vents, rear defogger, central locking and electrically-adjustable wing mirrors as standard. Top trims will get bits like alloy wheels, climate control, a touchscreen audio system, steering mounted controls, keyless entry, ABS and airbags.
