The Ciaz will be soon be sold exclusively from Maruti's NEXA outlets.
A member of The Automotive India has snapped the updated MY2017 Maruti Ciaz at a NEXA outlet in Delhi. The Ciaz will be soon be sold exclusively from Maruti's NEXA line of dealerships, so the images suggest that they have begun stocking up.
As seen in an example spied last month, the updated Ciaz for NEXA will drop the Maruti Suzuki lettering and variant badges, leaving the Ciaz nameplate, Maruti Suzuki 'S' logo and the SHVS badge (if it's the diesel variant). The NEXA representative further divulged to the TAI member that a few changes have been made, although he hasn't gone into detail about it.
This follows a leak of the Maruti Ciaz variant lineup, which will include NEXA's usual grades such as Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha, instead of the current model's V(O), V+, Z, and Z+ grade hierarchy. The sportier Ciaz RS will be marketed as the Ciaz S by NEXA. Nothing has changed to the looks of the car.
The engine lineup retains the familiar 1.3L 4-cyl turbodiesel DDiS 200 engine with the mild-hybrid SHVS system, and a 1.4L K14B 4-cyl N/A petrol engine with 95 PS. All 5 grades of the Maruti Ciaz come equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the 4-speed automatic transmission exclusive to the petrol variant is optional in Delta, Zeta and Alpha grades.
