Maruti Suzuki cars are well-known for its blessings on the rear, which gives the onlookers an accurate detail of its car models.
It is full of good reading material, embeded with the carmaker logo, brand name ‘Maruti Suzuki’, model name ‘i.e. Ciaz’, variant name ‘i.e. VXi, ZDi’ denotes fuel-type and trim-level, further mentioning if its a ‘AutoGearShift’ or ‘SHVS’ and additionally most of the Maruti outlets will stick their dealership name and their contact details on the rear windscreen.
However, now the country’s largest car-maker has started to reduce the number of badges on its car models starting with S-Cross, later followed by Baleno, Vitara Brezza and now Ignis. The latest stock of Ciaz units arrived at the dealer stockyard does not feature the ‘Maruti Suzuki’ lettering and variant badges.
As seen on other cars sold via Nexa, there is no ‘Maruti Suzuki’ badging on the Ciaz. It will only have Suzuki logo, as seen in the image above. The diesel variant still keeps the SHVS badge and ‘Ciaz’ nameplates, while the petrol variant only has the latter. Removing the Maruti moniker will not affect anything, as Maruti Suzuki is one of the most recognised automotive brands in India.
This minor change will be the big step as it will mark the entry of Ciaz into Maruti’s premium dealership called NEXA. For now the Ciaz will continued to be sold via their traditional dealers and not at their premium NEXA outlet. With the launch of facelifted Ciaz in April-2017, the new model will be retailed via NEXA outlets.
