Maruti Suzuki has shifted Ciaz to their premium outlets Nexa recently, however, the mechanics of the car remain the same. It is the replacement for the company's not-so-successful mid-sized sedan, the SX4 and it takes on the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna and other C segment sedans. Available in four trim levels, V, V+, Z and Z+, the Ciaz has both petrol and diesel engine options on offer. The petrol model of the car features a 1.4-litre VVT engine, capable of returning 20.73Km/l. Whereas, the diesel version of the car sports a 1.3-litre DDiS unit, which will return an impressive 26.21Km/l. With a fuel efficiency of 26.21Km/l, the Ciaz diesel engine has been claimed to be India's most fuel efficient car.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz comes with ISOFIX mounts as a standard fitment on the entire range. The feature common in premium cars and Ciaz is the first vehicle from Maruti Suzuki India to get this it. Essential for the safety of children, the ISOFIX mounts are provided on the rear seats of Ciaz. The sedan paved Maruti Suzuki India’s way into the c segment, after several failed attempts. Powered by a set of frugal engines, Ciaz also gets the SHVS technology on the diesel variants that are claimed to return imposing fuel economy of 28.09km/l.
