Maruti Suzuki today added a new variant to its Ciaz lineup called the Ciaz S at a price of Rs 9.39 lakh for the 1.4-litre petrol (ex-showroom Delhi) model. The new variant brings in a number of design updates to the Ciaz sedan while also adding a diesel variant priced higher at Rs 11.55 lakh.
The 1.4-litre 90 PS petrol engine comes in both 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission options, while the 1.3-litre 93 PS variant is available only with a 5-speed manual transmission.
The Maruti Ciaz S comes with all the equipment offered on the Ciaz Alpha while bringing in fresh new spoilers to both front and rear end along with new side skirts. On the inside, the Ciaz S gets an all-black leather upholstery instead of the dual-tone finish on the Alpha. As per AutoCar India's report, other minor changes include a multi-info display between the speedometer and the tachometer.
Launching the Ciaz S, Maruti Suzuki India Marketing and Sales director R S Kalsi said,“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. 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.”
The Ciaz S will feature at Nexa showrooms like the Alpha. Maruti moved the model from its regular showrooms to its more premium dealership, Nexa earlier this year. Maruti at the launched claimed that this shift has enabled the company to provide a better experience to customers. The Ciaz competes with the likes of the Honda City, the Volkswagen Vento and the Skoda Rapid.
