The premium black-and-beige interior theme, with luxurious wooden garnish and chrome accents looks chic and contemporary.

The Ciaz is built on Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) for safety. The high tensile steel deployed extensively across the body panels of the Ciaz makes it stronger, while the wide wheelbase offers stability to the car while negotiating tough corners. Several active and passive safety features such as ABS with EBD and driver side air bag (from V+ trim itself) and dual airbags (from Z trim onwards) add to safety. In addition, features like parking sensors are offered in V+ trims. Z trims are offered with parking camera, seat belt with pre-tensioners and force limiters.

Ciaz is powered by two highly acclaimed engines: the next generation K14 VVT petrol engine and refined DDiS200 diesel engine. Smartly integrated, the next generation K14 VVT 1.4 litre petrol engine delivers a class leading fuel efficiency of 20.73 kmpl. Similarly, smart engine packaging and integration of the acclaimed DDiS200 1.3 litre engine returns fuel efficiency of 26.21 kmpl making it India’s most fuel efficient car. In Manual transmission Ciaz is currently offered in 4 trim levels in Petrol variants (Vxi, Vxi+, Zxi and Zxi-Optional) and 4 in Diesel variants (Vdi, Vdi+, Zdi and Zdi-Optional). Ciaz is also offered with two automatic transmission variants (petrol).
