Maruti Suzuki introduced the updated version of the Ciaz in 2018. This is the first comprehensive update for the vehicle since its debut in the country. The updates on the Ciaz are limited to cosmetic and feature updates. As compared to its predecessor, the length of the current model is reduced by 15mm to 4,490mm, while the height, width and wheelbase remain unchanged.
Engine & Transmission ( Engine CC & Types, Bhp, Torque; Transmission - Available options):
Under the hood, the Ciaz is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine with a Smart Hybrid technology that generates 103bhp at 6,000rpm and 138Nm at 4,400rpm. This engine can be had with either five-speed manual or four-speed automatic torque converter option. The older 1.4-litre K Series engine generated 91bhp and 130Nm of torque.
Visually, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz now gets a sleek grille and a chrome strip on the top flanked by the redesigned headlamps. The front bumper has a subtle update with circular fog lamps and a faux brushed metal finish surround that complement the projector headlamp unit with horizontal LED DRLs. The rear section looks fresh due to a revised bumper and taillights with a new lighting signature. The overall look is complete with a fresh set of alloy wheels.
Most of the elements in the current model have been carried forward from its predecessor. However, it now gets birch blonde wood finish with satin chrome accents and a new 4.2 inch TFT Multi-Information Display (MID) for freshness. The updated model also offers rear AC vents as standard along with other features like chrome garnish (steering wheel, inside door handles, AC louvres knob, and parking brake lever), keyless entry, cruise control, electrically adjustable ORVMs, front centre armrest with a utility box, and a rear centre armrest with cup holders. The vehicle also gets an additional set of safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, seatbelt reminder for driver, and passenger along with the speed alert system.

1. Space. A genuine 5-seater sedan; gobbles up the family happily
2. Fuel efficiency. Mild-hybrid tech on petrol ensures the wallet remains fat
3. Well-equipped lower variants. You don’t really have to buy the top-spec for a premium experience
4. Value for money. Aggressive pricing undercuts most of its competition
1. Misses out on a few good to have features such as a sunroof, six airbags, etc
2. Automatic is an old 4-speed torque converter
Maruti’s promising a cleaner, more efficient drive with the refreshed petrol version and reduced prices with the diesel. Naturally, there are more features added to the Ciaz’ kitty too. On paper, then, the Ciaz seems to tick the right boxes. In that case, we’ll be answering one simple question - are the updates enough for you to cut a cheque for it?
The Ciaz continues to get the basics of space, ride quality and ease of driving spot on. This alone, in our books, are enough reasons to seriously consider buying one. Then there's the fact that the new engine brings with it a bucketload of efficiency and also solves the automatic’s drinking habit to a fair extent. Yes, it still doesn't have the wow factor of a sunroof or other flashy features like a hands-free trunk release or ventilated seats. The only real miss here is the lack of side and curtain airbags.
Given its price tag, the Ciaz makes for a value package. What sweetens the deal further is the fact that the lower variants come well kitted too. That means you don't get a step-motherly treatment for being on a budget.
If outright performance and driving dynamics aren't the most important parameter on your list, and you just need a comfy, spacious sedan to drive to (or be driven in) to work and back, then the Ciaz makes a stronger case than ever.
