The 2017 model features cosmetic updates, and the interior has been overhauled with new features. The new Alivio gets a Pro suffix, but the overall proportions of the car remain the same.
The front fascia of the new Alivio Pro features single frame grille, redesigned bumper and new fog lamps with chrome bezel. The headlights do not receive any major updates but do get subtle tweaks.
The rear of the car has been revisited and features large tail lamp cluster and a revamped bumper with integrated reflectors and blacked-out lower portion.
The interior of the China-spec Alivio Pro sports a large touchscreen infotainment system. The sedan is equipped with features such as Start/Stop button, automatic climate control, cruise control and keyless entry.
The 2017 Suzuki Alivio Pro draws power from a 1.6-litre petrol engine producing 120bhp. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The safety features on the sedan include dual airbags, ABS, EBD and ESP.
The India-spec Ciaz facelift will not be similar to the Alivio Pro. But it could share some design elements and equipments. Currently, Maruti Suzuki is developing the facelifted Ciaz for the Indian market.
The facelifted Ciaz has been already spotted testing on the Indian roads. The overall design is likely to be similar to the 2017 Alivio Pro, but the features and equipment may vary for the Indian market. The facelifted Ciaz will take on the likes of new Hyundai Verna, Honda City, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid.
