The Maruti Ciaz was first introduced in 2014. The sedan with the 1.4-litre engine felt underpowered compared to its rivals. With the introduction of the larger 1.5-litre petrol engine, Maruti hopes to improve the power figures on its Ciaz, in a bid to take on its rivals. The Maruti Ciaz competes against cars like the Honda City and the Hyundai Verna.
