        Hi , yeah i knew it was an error its ok, but MARUTI made a mistake by launching a torque converter same old school AT, and the urgency of launching the CIAZ with the same engine doing the duty with tweaking it,more room for improvement with the engines in the next upgrades in coming days will take time, like 1.6 should have been brought from sx4 with new next gen 1.6 k series and 1,6 ddis which is to be seen on scross, would have been good for the competition and CVT missing, or even AMT versions in vxi and VXi plus versions would have been sea change , though it is considered as premium for segment . 2016 auto expo, will be the place for again new ciaz.. hopefully…..,

        Hi i knew it was an error ,and corrected it, but maruti made a mistake who will correct it? an old school 4 speed torque converter AT, it was better they should not have launched ciaz with old school AT, they could have brought AMT to VXI and VXI plus versions even though ciaz is trying to hold the premium segment and they could have brought 1.6 engine from sx4 tweaking it making improvements and launching k series1.6 next gen , and even 1.6 ddis which is coming for s cross, looks like ciaz was like c section delivery, instead of a natural one with every parameters in the engine department like bigger engines, proper Automatic transmissions, otherwise with its features, design everything is good , more room for improvement , hopefully next 2016 auto expo can be place for again an upgraded to meow more for ciaz, till then it is like who will tie the bell to CIAZ? read as ciaz is catching the competition .
