Maruti Suzuki will launch the 2018 Ciaz facelift on August 20. Since 2014, this is the first time the Ciaz will get a major makeover as it will get a new petrol engine with the company’s mild hybrid system. Bookings are also underway at an initial token of ? 11,000 to ? 21,000 depending on the variant. The Ciaz facelift has been spotted on multiple occasions at dealership yard giving a proper glimpse of the upcoming car.
According to previous reports, we already know most of what there is to know about the upcoming Ciaz 2018 facelift. To keep up with the competition, particularly the Honda City, the Ciaz will feature a combination of LED headlamps, fog lamps and tail lights. In the process, it will be the first Maruti ever, to come with a full LED lighting system.
The 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz will come with a new front end which will be stooped more than before. The front grille appears to be a sleeker and the sweptback headlamps add to the front look. The car also comes with a new bumper, revised central airdam and a larger cavity on either side to house the new foglamps.
Prior to this, reports stated that the Electronic Stability Program and hill-hold assist would be offered as standard across Ciaz variants. Now however, we can confirm that the features will be offered with the automatic variants only. The Ciaz will come with the same K15B petrol engine as the new Ertiga which will make 105PS of max power. The engine powering the Ciaz will also be mated to the SHVS mild hybrid technology for better fuel economy. The diesel engine, on the other hand, will remain the same as before.
We are excited to see the new facelift model. Are you?
