The internet is abuzz with images of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift and it has been spotted testing on Indian roads yet again. The luxury sedan is one of the most successful products from the Maruti stable and a facelift was much talked about in recent times. While we have already informed you that Maruti Suzuki is working on a facelift for the Ciaz, we now have additional and clear images of the facelifted sedan being tested on the Indian roads, suggesting its debut is near. However, according to sources, Maruti will most likely launch the Ciaz post the Auto Expo 2018, as the company is all set to launch the new generation Swift in India first.
The latest images of the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is in its camouflaged avatar, but we can manage to get a glimpse of the updated design. The updates come in the form of a new grille pattern with subtle chrome surrounds instead of chrome slats from its predecessor. The updated headlamps, new LED daytime running lamps, revised front bumper and larger fog lamps are some of the updates on the Ciaz facelift. In profile, the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz gets new multi-spoke alloy wheels, while the ORVMs get integrated turn signal lights. At the rear, the tail lamp cluster is new along with a revised rear bumper.
At the heart of the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is the same tried and tested 1.4-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre DDiS diesel SHVS engine. While the petrol mill will churn out 91 bhp, the diesel engine will give a max power output of 89 bhp. Transmission options consist of a 5-Speed manual gearbox for both the engines and a 4-Speed torque converter for petrol engine. We also expect Maruti Suzuki to provide an AMT version for the diesel engine.
