Launch expected in the coming weeks.
Seen here for the first time are images of the Maruti Ciaz ZDi+ believed to be the flagship variant on the upcoming midsize sedan. Features on this car include 16-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, ABS (indicated by the sticker on the rear windscreen), chrome door handles, parking sensors, indicators on side mirrors and projector headlights.
The ZDi+ could be a leather-seat equipped variant based on the ZDi, though details are still speculative now.
As mentioned earlier, powering the Ciaz will be the 1.4-liter K-Series petrol engine and the 1.3-liter Fiat-sourced Multijet diesel engine, matched to manual gearboxes. The power outputs of these engines are likely to mirror that of the Ertiga's.
