A recent report stated that Maruti will be launching the Ciaz early next month in a total of six variants (3 each for petrol and diesel). All variants would come with projector headlights as standard fitment, while the top-end model would get features such as 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, steering mounted controls, engine starter button, ABS, EBD and dual airbags.

    There is a HUGE difference between the front view of the CIAZ & ALIVIO… Keep both pictures together (One from here of the ALIVIO & one from GaadiWaadi’s spy shots of the CIAZ). We’re not gonna get the bold version like ALIVIO in India. CIAZ is rather an evolved BALENO than the SX4.

      Ciaz looks cheaper, Alivio has more chrome which makes it look bolder. i prefer the alivio
