Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S gets a large rear spoiler

Maruti Suzuki on Thursday launched a new sporty version of its popular sedan the Ciaz at a starting price of Rs 9.39 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The new sporty Ciaz S will be powered by the same 91 bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic gearbox.

Latest Maruti Ciaz S gets cosmetic changes over the earlier standard Ciaz Alpha.

The new variant - Ciaz S - with petrol variant is priced at Rs 9.39 lakh and the diesel variant at Rs 11.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Making a killing with its hatchbacks and compact SUVs recently, Maruti Suzuki has also been making its presence felt in the sedan segment with its Ciaz. Front and side under spoilers bring out the look which the new rear spoiler starts off. "The introduction of Ciaz S will further strengthen the position of Ciaz in the market by catering to the requirements of a younger yet premium customer who believes in the sporty spirit of life", said R S Kalsi, senior executive director, Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. And there is better still news as the Ciaz S only available in top-spec Alpha trim costs only Rs. 10,000 - 11,000 over the standard vehicle.

The Ciaz S now comes with premium black interiors with grey chrome finishing that accentuate the sleek and elegant design of the auto.

Ciaz features several industry first innovations such as the integrated SmartPlay in-car infotainment system and the projector headlamps.

The petrol unit churns out 91bhp whereas the diesel motor produces 88bhp and comes with SHVS technology. However, the records claim that Ciaz dominates the category with 43.5 per cent market share.

While the new sports version of the vehicle goes full speed on the road, the vehicle also has decent safety features including dual airbags - for front seats, seat belt pre-tensioner and child seat restraint system. It would be more interesting to see how Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S competes with the likes of Skoda Rapid, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, and Volkswagen Vento.
