The Maruti Ciaz (pronounced : chi-aaz) concept sedan was revealed today at the Auto Expo. The Ciaz is not an entirely new concept, but it is in fact the same concept that was shown at the Auto Shanghai in April last year. The Shanghai show car debuted under the name of the 'Authentics' concept though.
At its core, the Ciaz previews the next generation sedan from the brand which will replace the SX4 sedan. Maruti has started testing the production version of this car, with several test mules being spied in and around New Delhi.
When it is launched later this year, the Ciaz will be powered by petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine is expected to be the four-cylinder 1.4-liter K-Series engine seen on the Ertiga. On the MPV, this engine outputs 95 PS and 130 Nm of torque.
