Becomes the 13th variant of the Ciaz.
AutosArena reports that Maruti Suzuki is planning to launch the Maruti Ciaz ZXi+ with an automatic transmission. The publication mentions the price of the ZXi+ AT as INR 10,35,206 (ex-showroom, Goa) and INR 11,94,142 (on-road, Goa).
The Ciaz ZXi+ is differentiated from the ZXi and lower variants by 195/55-R16 tyres, trunk lid chrome garnish, door beltline garnish, chrome coloured door handles, leather seat upholstery, leather wrapped steering wheel, and Smartplay infotainment system with touchscreen display, navigation system and voice command feature.
The ZXi+ Ciaz is powered by the same 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 92.5 PS at 6,000 rpm and 130 Nm at 4,000 rpm. While the five-speed manual gearbox version is claimed to deliver an ARAI-certified mileage of 20.73 km/l, the ZXi AT variant with a four-speed automatic transmission is said to return 19.12 km/l. The same automatic transmission would be carried over to the ZXi+ model and hence the mileage would be same or very similar to ZXi AT’s.
