Maruti launched the Ciaz in 2014 to replace the aging SX4 sedan. This all-new car was engineered keeping in mind segment leader Honda City. The Ciaz offers everything that rivals do but as a lower price point which has made it the best-selling car in the segment now. It can be a perfect used car purchase for those looking at a comfortable and spacious family sedan. In case you own one and want to find a buyer, here’s a set of tips for selling a used Maruti Ciaz.
Sporty body kit:
The Ciaz is the only car to offer a factory fitted body kit in the segment. Available on the RS version, the body kit consists of sporty 16-inch alloy wheels, boot mounted spoiler, front and rear bumper spoiler and side skirts. The interiors also get an all-black theme. This makes the Ciaz the most appealing sedan when it comes to aesthetics.
Don’t worry if you do not own the RS version as the normal model also looks better than its rivals. A great exterior design can work as an excellent first impression for a prospective buyer for your Ciaz.
Tech loaded:The Ciaz is the most technologically advanced Maruti ever. If you own the diesel version, remember it comes with segment unique hybrid system or SHVS (smart hybrid vehicle system) that helps reduce fuel consumption making it the most fuel efficient car in its category. The SHVS system consists of an electric motor that assists the engine during acceleration thereby reducing its load. It also shuts off the engine automatically when the car comes to a standstill and automatically re-starts when the driver engages the clutch. This technology also helps it earn tax benefits in Delhi.
This is certainly a point to boast about to a prospective buyer.
