While the new Maruti Ciaz 2018 facelift is all set to hit roads on 20th August, the feature details of the updated model have been emerged online. According to a leaked document, the facelifted Ciaz will be more feature-loaded and safer than the outgoing model. To be available in four trims – Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha, the updated version will get the speed alert system and seatbelt reminder for both driver and front passenger as standard fitments.
