Maruti Suzuki India is the largest car manufacturer in the country. Next month, the manufacturer is expected to launch the much-awaited 2018 Maruti Ciaz facelift. The mid-size sedan's updated version has been totally revealed in the spy images which was clicked by Autoportal.
The facelifted version of the 2018 Ciaz will carry a slightly premium price tag over the current model. Nexa dealerships across Delhi-NCR, Mumbai and Pune have been accepting unofficial bookings for an amount of Rs 11,000.
On the outside, the new Ciaz features a few tweaks compared to the current model. The car gets a redesigned front bumper with a trapezium grille on the lower side. The new LED DRLs can also be seen.
The fog lamp housing gets chrome garnishing and to give it a muscular look the car has got crease lines flowing on the bonnet. The side of the car remains unchanged while the rear gets a redesigned tail lamp housing and bumper.
As per the spy images, the dashboard gets light-coloured faux wood inlays along with cruise control and feature buttons on the steering wheel. The car also gets a larger instrument cluster. The touchscreen infotainment system is bigger and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Under the hood, the 2018 Maruti Ciaz facelift will get a new 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine. The engine produces 103bhp of maximum power and 138Nm of peak torque. The petrol version comes mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

On the other hand, the diesel engine will be the same 1.3-litre DDiS unit churning out 89bhp of power with 200Nm of torque. This engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission only.
Once launched, the 2018 Ciaz will lock horns with the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Toyota Yaris.
Thoughts On The 2018 Ciaz Facelift
The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift is going to set a new benchmark in the premium sedan segment. The new exterior styling and the introduction of comfort and safety features will help boost up the sales of the sedan.
