Suzuki makes the best small petrol engines out there and expect this to be no different. The 1.5 petrol is expected to make 108bhp of power and 138 Nm of torque. They have gone back to the drawing room on this one as the petrol engine exported to Indonesia was making only 100 bhp. This should set the charts on fire for Maruti mostly on the S-cross and the Brezza that do not have a petrol option

This should have coincided with Ciaz's move to Nexa. That way, customers would at least feel that the Nexa Ciaz is an upgrade/update over the regular Ciaz. And not the same Ciaz being pricier.
Timing makes sense if I think with respect to the competition. Introduction of Hyundai Verna has really upped the game and challenges Ciaz and City heads-on. In my opinion, if Ciaz can bring in cruise control, ventilated seats, sun-roof, 6 air-bags etc then an increased rivalry will definitely result in customer's delight.

I could'nt find anything about the transmission but this engine in the S-cross and Brezza should definitely double their sales.

I don't know which class are they talking about. Petrol variants of Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento and Honda City have more power and torque compared to the said 1.5 liter petrol engine in the facelifted Maruti Ciaz.

Ultra light weight of Ciaz should translate into decent power to weight ratio. If Suzuki manages to get decent mid range punch from this new engine coupled with the fuel efficiency and drivability of the older 1.4 liter engine then they surely have a winner on their hands.

Now all they need to do is to improve the handling (independent rear suspension) and then we shall have the true spiritual successor of the erstwhile Maruti Esteem.

Can't help but draw the parallel:
1. Low slung and light weight aerodynamic body.
2. Independent rear suspension.
3. Free revving petrol motor with more than enough power for the car's weight, coupled with slightly longer gear ratios.

And behold the reincarnation of the grand Daddy of them all.

When is the Ciaz Facelift expected to launch? As per the article in the link above, its mentioned as AutoExpo 2018.
Also will the Facelift get the 1.5L Petrol Motor?

The facelift should be launched soon. Else it stands a small chance against the New Verna and the City.

We just came home after test driving the current generation Ciaz petrol & we expect to book our car in a week & take delivery in two weeks . The discounts on offer combined with our car in exchange gives us quite an amazing deal right now .Can anyone please confirm about the launch of the facelift & whether we are getting a new petrol engine with it ?

....unles there's a change of 'heart'.

I guess the new power plants are imminent for the Ciaz to be in the reckoning. Ciaz makes decent progress due to it's low kerb weight. I didn't find the power in short supply even in the automatic/petrol fully loaded with 4 people (3+driver=me) with A/C on; it hides it's 90 bhp very well in the city.
It's the best turned out Maruti sedan by far: very refined and feature loaded. All that's needed is a upgraded power, all round discs, 4 more airbags to let the cat loose among the pigeons.

I've been eyeing on the new Ciaz since July '17, and I've been told that the new Ciaz is definitely coming this year. As of now, it's said to be launched at the AutoExpo and would be finally start selling from April. If not, it it sure to come by June-July. This news is not confirmed, but I trust the person from whom I've got this news. Let's wait till the AutoExpo and see.

Any guesses why the padding on the roof ? what are they trying to hide there ?
I would love to see a top-end trim like Honda City Zx with sun-roof

There are high chances they are hiding a sunroof, considering it's competitors already have sunroofs in the top variants. If this happens, Ciaz will sell like a hot cake.
