The 2018 Maruti Ciaz gets the all-new 1.5-liter VVT petrol engine which develops 103 bhp and 138 Nm of torque.

The exterior of the 2018 Maruti Ciaz will feature LED projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, a new grille, redesigned bumpers and new machined alloy wheels (16-inches on the Alpha variant and 15-inches on the Zeta variant). Inside, the updated sedan is confirmed to get a revised dashboard with lighter faux wood trim, a new instrument cluster with a color screen for the multi-information display and other "convenience features" like the adjustable rear headrests.

The major update is under the hood as the petrol Ciaz swaps its 1.4-liter engine for the larger 1.5-liter K15B four-cylinder VVT unit developing 103 bhp and 138 Nm of torque. It will be paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic and offers the SHVS mild-hybrid technology for increased fuel efficiency. The 2018 Ciaz petrol MT delivers 21.56 km/l and the petrol AT 20.28 km/l, a recent report said.

The 2018 Ciaz diesel, at launch, will be powered by the tried-and-tested 1.3-liter DDiS developing 89 bhp and 200 Nm of torque. Later in the year, Maruti will reportedly introduce its self-developed 1.5-liter diesel engine which will meet BS6 emission norms.
