The sedan also gets chrome door handles and ORVMs with integrated turn indicators have been carried over from the existing model. The car gets redesigned tail light cluster and revamped rear bumper with reflectors on either side.
The Maruti Ciaz facelift is expected to draw power from an all-new 1.5-litre petrol engine which will replace the existing 1.4-litre unit. The diesel variant of the Ciaz facelift will be powered by the same 1.3-litre engine with SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle From Suzuki) technology.
Transmission options include a 5-speed manual gearbox and Maruti Suzuki might also introduce a new automatic gearbox which will replace the 4-speed AT. The interior of the facelifted premium sedan will also get subtle updates in the form of new dashboard theme and seat upholstery.
