IAB Report – Maruti Ciaz launches today


Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Looks to dethrone the Honda City.

After successfully launching the Celerio, the country’s first AMT equipped car, Maruti Suzuki is all set for its second big launch of the year, the Maruti Ciaz.

The Ciaz diesel is the most fuel efficient car in India.

Aimed squarely at the new Honda City which didn’t waste any time to snatch the segment leadership from the Hyundai Verna, the Ciaz comes with a petrol and diesel engine option. The 1.4-litre 95 PS (93.66 bhp) K-Series petrol engine delivers a class leading fuel economy of 20.73 km/l. The diesel variant, with the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel motor generating 90 PS (88.7 bhp) under the hood, is the most fuel efficient car in India with an economy of 26.21 km/l (ARAI figures).

The petrol motor is available with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic transmission while the diesel motor stays content with only the manual gearbox.

The interior space is one of the key strengths of the Ciaz.

The petrol and diesel versions are available in four variants each. The standard features across the range include projector headlamps, keyless entry, electrically operated wing mirrors with integrated turn indicators, an audio system with USB, Aux-in and memory card and fabric seats with front and rear armrests.

The SX4 replacement gets a fresh design inside and out and has interior space as its USP, apart from the top-of-the-chart fuel economies of course.
