Maruti Suzuki is making constant efforts to attract sedan buyers with another model excepting Swift Dzire. Now, the Indian car maker has launched new trim into Ciaz range, called Ciaz S. This new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S is made available in both diesel and petrol variants targeting buyers in large scale. Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S petrol variant price starts at Rs.9.39 lakh, while Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S Diesel variant price is listed at Rs.11.55 lakh (prices as per ex-showroom Delhi).
Latest Maruti Ciaz S gets cosmetic changes over the earlier standard Ciaz Alpha. Interestingly, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S price is just Rs.11,000 more than the standard variant.
“Ciaz has established itself as one of the most progressive brands of Maruti Suzuki and has sold over 1.70 lakh units of Ciaz cumulative since its launch in October 2014. 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 believe in the sporty spirit of life,” says R S Kalsi Senior Executive Director, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, at Introducing the new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S Features:
All New Ciaz S gets a sporty look with no less than any features offer in the top-spec variant. In particular, Maruti Ciaz S features touchscreen infotainment system which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also, it comes with automatic climate control, cruise control, and much more such options. The all-black interior with leather upholstery adds more style to the Suzuki Ciaz S along with the chrome accents for the cabin.
On the other hand, Safety features in the Ciaz S include seat belt pre-tensioner with force limiter, dual airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX (child seat restraint system). Yet, this is not for the first time that Maruti Suzuki is trying to add a Sporty look to Ciaz. The company introduced Ciaz RS earlier in 2015 with some minor updates over regular model.
Furthermore, Marit Ciaz S gets several visual updates like the beefy rear bumper with sculpted lines, larger rear spoiler, and new front and side under spoilers besides others. The maker paid no interest in adding new colors options to the new range of Ciaz S.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S Engine Specifications:
Under the hood, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S drives power from the same 91 bhp 1.4-litre petrol and 88 bhp 1.3-litre diesel engine with Suzuki smart SHVS system. Maruti Ciaz S petrol variant users can choose between the 5-speed manual gearbox and 4-speed auto gearbox variants. Sadly, Ciaz S diesel buyers have no option expect to confine for the 5-speed manual unit.
Maruti claims that the new Ciaz S will attract segment buyers with its all new sporty look. However, the records claim that Ciaz dominates the category with 43.5 per cent market share. 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.
