Though Suzuki showcased a pre-production Alivio at the Beijing Motor Show this April, the interior of the car was not revealed then. For the Chinese market, the car will be powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder 16-valve petrol engine coupled with a newly-developed 6-speed automatic transmission.

In India, Maruti is expected to launch the Ciaz in the festive season months of August or September. The sedan will get the Ertiga’s 1.4-liter K-Series petrol engine and the Fiat-sourced 1.3-liter diesel motor. The petrol Ciaz would also receive a CVT gearbox in addition to the default 5-speed manual.
