The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift has been spotted for the first time on-road testing in Spain. It’s been on development since last couple of months, and is likely to hit the Indian market sometime next year.
The semi-camouflaged test mule hints towards the essential upgrades to keep the C-segment sedan relevant amidst rivals like the updated Honda City, Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid and the new generation Hyundai Verna.
In these recent shots, we notice that the mules have been given major updates to the front and rear, however, other body lines and creases have also been carried forward. The grille and bumper have been covered in camouflage pointing towards extensive changes. Similarly, the rear bumper could be tweaked along with modifications to the tail lamps.
The interior is expected get a subtle-update with added features like cruise control, daytime running LEDs, tail lamp LEDs and sunroof will be on offer. An 16-inch alloy wheels may be on offer too. Whatsoever, the features on 2018 model will be a lot more than what is available on the current one.
The engine is expected to be identical to the current one offered with the current set of 91 BHP 1.4-litre petrol and 89 BHP 1.3-litre diesel engines. Reports also suggest that Maruti Suzuki could plonk a new 1.5-litre diesel engine under the hood, but there has been no confirmation on the same.
