The Maruti Ciaz is your greatest sedan offering in the Indo-Japanese automobile manufacturer for the Indian vehicle industry. The Ciaz was released in 2014 and it required a while to acquire a foothold one of the C-segment sedans to become the bestseller from the section.
The Ciaz is due for an upgrade in the year 2017 and we anticipate the car to get there at the close of the year.
Following a few years after its launching, the Ciaz eventually gained momentum to transcend the Hyundai Verna after which the Honda City to become the C-segment pioneer, a first for Maruti from the Indian vehicle industry.
The Ciaz has existed for around three decades and is expected for a mid-life upgrade.
This is going to be an upgrade instead with just a couple tweaks to the outside and in the vehicle. The mid-life update might observe new bumpers fore and aft, LED DRLs and projector headlamps at least to its higher-spec variants.
Being a mid-life upgrade, the fluctuations are less or more decorative. We have not seen the evaluation mules however which means the launching would surely be at the latter half of this year.
Going from the section standards, the Ciaz facelift will get LED Daytime running lamps and projector headlamps at least on the higher-spec trims.
On the interior, the Ciaz facelift will find a lighter colour of faux-wood trim. There’ll not be any change to the dashboard design or the steering wheel.
A couple of days ago, we reported that the Ciaz will find a brand new instrument cluster with a bigger multi-info screen (maybe in color, such as the Baleno) and blue highlights to the speedometer and the tachometer that are currently just found on the Ciaz petrol SHVS.
It’s also theorized that with the accession of this 1.6-litre motor, the Ciaz could be transferred into the top Nexa scheme of items together with the Vitara Brezza getting the flagship version for its normal traders.
The cost won’t rise by much because of its bottom gasoline but the 1.6-litre petrol Ciaz might supersede the top-spec Honda City concerning pricing.
The SHVS system includes start-stop technology and utilizes the integrated starter generator (ISG). The ISG acts as a battery charger through braking and functions as the starter engine once the start-stop technologies is currently in use.
SHVS-equipped cars also have an electrical increase through the Engine Power Assist (EPA) system, in which the ISG supplements the engine’s power during acceleration. This system may continue to be provided on the unchanged 1.3-litre diesel engine powering the refreshed Ciaz.
