Maruti Suzuki has been a dominant name in terms of four wheelers. They have introduced interesting and practical products in India all along. At the 2014 Auto Expo, which was held in New Delhi they launched their affordable hatchback the Celerio.
The Japanese automobile giant had also showcased its new sedan Ciaz as a concept. As we had earlier reported to you, Maruti Suzuki has opened bookings for their new vehicle–this means Ciaz launch is round the corner.
It is evident people like it as we have heard Maruti Suzuki dealers have received tremendous response. The Ciaz is a more premium option from the Japanese manufacturer, which will replace their SX4 model that did not perform as expected in India.
Maruti has already commenced the production of vehicle and do not expect to delay buyers. They believe waiting periods for their Ciaz will be much lower. However, Maruti Suzuki has a great fan following and if people like the sedan, they can soon run out of stock, as it happened with their Celerio hatchback.
The Japanese automobile giant will provide its Ciaz sedan with petrol and diesel options. It gets a 1.4-litre petrol powered engine which will produce 130 Nm of peak torque, along with 90.70 horsepower. The Ciaz diesel mill is a 1.3-litre Multijet engine, capable of generating 200 Nm of peak torque, along with 88.73 horsepower.
The Ciaz will come in seven exciting colours out of which three are pearl based. They are Pearl Snow White, Pearl Metallic Dignity Brown and Pearl Sangria Red. Other colours include Metallic Silky Silver, Metallic Glistening Gray, Metallic Clear Beige and Midnight Black.
Maruti Suzuki has packed its Ciaz with several features like engine start/stop button, climate control, rear AC, touchscreen infotainment, Bluetooth connectivity, dual airbags, ABS and much more. When launched it will compete with Honda City and Hyundai Verna, we expect the Ciaz to be priced at a premium compared to their SX4.
