The 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift will launch on 20 August 2018. It will sport a handful of styling updates along with some new safety features. Rushlane reports that the top-end trim of the 2018 Ciaz will have six airbags.
Like the current Maruti Ciaz, the facelifted Maruti Ciaz will be sold in four trims - Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. Currently, all the trims offer only dual front airbags and driver's seatbelt reminder. The facelifted model, however, will offer six airbags on the top-end trim and Dual front airbags, ABS, Speed Alert System, seatbelt warning for driver and front passenger as standard across all trims. The Speed Alert System will sound two beeps every 60 seconds when at speeds above 80 km/h but below 120 km/h. Above 120 km/h, there will be a continuous beep to remind the driver to adhere to the speed limit.
On the outside, the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz facelift will come with a sleeker front grille, a bolder front bumper, a set of new headlamps that will carry LED projector headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), new taillights and chrome trim for bumpers. The Delta trim will get a set of alloy wheels instead of the steel wheels of the current car. On the inside, the Ciaz facelift will feature a new faux wood trim for the dashboard and revised instrument cluster with colour MID.
Under the hood, the 2018 Maruti Ciaz will have the all-new 1.5-litre K15B engine that outputs 104.7 PS of maximum power and 138 Nm of peak torque. The new engine will replace the current 1.4-litre motor. The new petrol engine will also come mated to a five-speed manual transmission as standard and a four-speed automatic as an option. Also, for the first time, the petrol engine model of the Ciaz will offer SHVS mild-hybrid system. The 1.3-litre diesel engine will be carried over from the outgoing model. It will continue being available with only a 5-speed manual transmission.
The 2018 Maruti Ciaz could cost up to INR 50,000 more than the outgoing model (INR 7,83,383*). Over 7,000 units are said to have been dispatched to NEXA outlets.
