New Maruti Ciaz Facelift Teaser Pictures
The 2018 model year of the Maruti Ciaz will see minor cosmetic changes including slightly revised front fascia, newly-designed alloy wheels and LED taillamps. Interior will also be updated with all-new instrument cluster with multi-info display and the lighter shade of faux wood.
Major change will be made under the skin. The new Maruti Ciaz 2018 facelift will debut with an all-new 104bhp, 1.5-litre petrol engine that will also be used in the new-generation Ertiga MPV. Interestingly, the Indo-Japanese carmaker will benefit the new gasoline motor with the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) mild-hybrid technology.
The SHVS system consists of start-stop technology and an ISG (Integrated starter generator) along with the Engine Power Assist (EPA) system. It improves the overall performance and fuel efficiency of the powertrain. The new Maruti Ciaz 2018 facelift will continue to use the existing 88.5bhp, 1.3-litre diesel engine. The carline will come with two gearbox options – a 5-speed manual and a new CVT unit. Maruti will completely scrap the 4-speed automatic transmission from the 2018 Ciaz model lineup.
