Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Nearly the same as the Maruti Ciaz RS.
The Suzuki Ciaz RS has premiered at the 2015 Thailand Motor Expo today. This is the second officially modified version of the Ciaz in Thailand after the one-off Suzuki Ciaz special edition that was presented at the 2015 Bangkok International Auto Salon in June. The Suzuki Ciaz RS is nearly identical to the Maruti Ciaz RS that was launched in October.
The Suzuki Ciaz RS features a sporty body kit that contains a front spoiler, side skirts, a rear bumper-spoiler and a trunk-lip spoiler, and 16-inch wheels to improve the visual impact of the car. The interior of the special edition Ciaz gets an all-black colour theme embellished with silver accents and leather seat upholstery. Further, it gets a 7-inch Suzuki Smart Connect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay support, and automatic climate control.
The Ciaz RS has no mechanical change. The Thai version is powered by the 1.25-litre four-cylinder petrol K12B engine that produces 91 hp of maximum power and 118 Nm of maximum torque, mated to a CVT. The car is priced at 675,000 baht (INR 12.54 lakhs) and is available in Ablaze Red Pearl, Snow White Pearl and Super Black Pearl body colours.
