2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz booking has been opened for Rs. 11,000 across all authorised Nexa dealerships and it can also be ordered online
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has officially announced the commencement of new Ciaz’s booking from tomorrow onwards. The pre-launch bookings can be made through an initial payment of Rs. 11,000 across all the 319 Nexa dealerships present in India.
Alternatively, the customers can go to nexaexperience.com to book the facelifted Ciaz online. The premium C-segment sedan comes equipped with a refreshed stance, updated design and new upmarket features in its new avatar.
On the outside, the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has gained several “first in segment” design elements such as LED projector headlamps with integrated Daytime Running Lights, new LED rear combination lamps, sporty machined alloy wheels, etc.
Stepping inside the cabin, the updated Ciaz adorns new premium dashboard with faux wooden inserts at the centre and a number of other convenience features including changes to the instrument cluster and cruise control function.
The Indo-Japanese brand has replaced the 1.4-litre petrol engine with a newly developed 1.5-litre K15B SHVS mild-hybrid unit. The engine develops 103 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm delivered at 4,400 rpm. It is mated to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.
Due to the idle-start-stop technology, the 2018 Ciaz becomes the most fuel-efficient petrol sedan in its class with 21.56 kmpl MT mileage and 20.28 kmpl AT economy. The 1.3-litre DDiS 200 unit continues without any changes but only for the time being, as it will be replaced by a new 1.5-litre turbo unit towards the end of this year.
It is the first Maruti Suzuki vehicle to have a dual battery setup as the lead acid battery powers Air Conditioning and headlamps, while the Li-ion battery supplies energy to electric parts such as instrument cluster and music system.
Some of the important features available are standard ESP, Hill Assist and Cruise Control in AT variants; LED fog lamps, rear seat adjustable headrests, 16-inch alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment system, etc.
