I guess it will look much different in reality. Look at their COLORS section and the interior photos. All colours are slightly blackened and they look much better than real. Moreover, the lighting settings within Nexa also makes it look better.

Anyway, this blue is a good addition. I think suzuki originally made all colours less dynamic since it was not targeted at young buyers. A bright red like Baleno or Polo would've got much more buyers than the existing pearl sangria red which we rarely see on roads. They even had to discontinue the golden (?) color variant due to lack of demand.

Maruti consolidating to 4 platforms from the current 8 platforms. Will there be any change in the Ciaz in line with this move? Can someone confirm the platform on which Ciaz is built? Is it the Suzuki C-platform (on which SCross is built), extended Swift / Ertiga platform, or the light-weight Baleno platform?

Will the following be their target platforms?

1. Alto, WagonR, Celerio, Omni, Eeco - New pk5 platform
2. Ignis, Swift, Baleno, Ertiga, DZire - Light-weight platform
3. Brezza, SCross, Ciaz (?) - Global C platform
4. Gypsy - Ladder frame

Appreciate any valuable inputs!
I have CIAZ ZDi+, found the low beam to be effective for city drives whilst the high beam on highways is pathetic, couldn't make much of difference in brightness nor throw on a highway between low beam and high beam.

Though I know the root cause is high beam halogen I wanted to see will switching the low beam to HID will make any significant improvement.
I checked about this with a local FNG and he sounded positive.
Gave me a quote of 5.7K for the below
HID Bulb - CN Light 4300K
AC Ballast - TCS / Crystal
Wattage - 55W
Chip - Canbus error free
Startup time: 0.5 seconds full glow
AC triple coat surge proof and 1 year replacement warrant.

PS - I don't want to upgrade the existing halogen high beam to Philips XV or Osram NB or to increase the wattage 90/100.

Cheers!

What kind of mileage do you get in city driving with AC.

I drive with ACC on always. In city, I get anywhere between 15 kmpl and 17 kmpl depending on the traffic intensity. I regularly get 17 plus on my daily commute of 100 kms from Mahindra World City to OMR through tambaram. On days when there is intense traffic and huge waiting times(that runs into hours) at bottle necks like Perungalathur/Vandalur I get 15 plus.

Maruti Suzuki are masters of extracting fuel efficiency, no doubt about that.

Awesome! 23.6kmpl much more that even the ARAI certification!

and yet we read today http://www.livemint.com/Companies/t9...ted-to-Ja.html

Goes a long way in showing what feather-lite acceleration can result .
Our oft used ZoomCar Ciaz never gave more than 11kmpl

Amotriz has launched a body kit for the Suzuki Ciaz in Thailand. The Amotriz body kit is available in two different sets for the sedan.
The Amotriz body kit for the Suzuki Ciaz includes front under spoiler with integrated daytime running lights, side under spoilers and rear under spoiler in the set of four pieces. In the set of 5 pieces, there’s also a ducktail spoiler. All parts are made of ABS plastic.
The 4-piece set is priced at 13,000 baht (INR 24,116.84) and the 5-piece set is priced at 14,000 baht (INR 25,971.98) at Love Bodykits. The price includes 2k painting, fitting and 1-year quality warranty.


Does it look good?

Arrow Re: Maruti Ciaz : Official Review

My Ciaz has got a new Android 6.0 head unit now.

Maruti Ciaz : Official Review-ciaz.jpeg

All I originally wanted was a rear view camera display after my rear bumper got a scratch due to a blind spot not detected by the sensors.

I ended up with:
  • Android Head Unit with 2 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM and Intel processor
  • Front Camera
  • Rear Camera
  • Steering wheel Controls
  • OBD II

Everything (except OBD) works like a charm and I am quite pleased. I am able to connect OBD to my phone and it works. But I have not yet been able to pair it to the Head Unit. The Head Unit does not detect it while scanning Bluetooth.

Below is the cost breakup:
  • Unit, Cameras, OBD - 17257
  • Steering Control Unit - 2139
  • Custom Duty Paid - 2791
  • Installation Charges including parts - 1800
  • Total - 23987

There were cheaper alternatives but I preferred it because of better RAM and Intel processor. This product is from Hong Kong instead of the mainland. So, I hope for better quality controls as well.

Would update more after I test with full load on the highway.

Thats a good one.. Hows this contraption working now? im sure you must have done roughly about 2k km with this. Pls do give ur honest opinion, as i want to install the same. Costing about 6k for two pairs in Indore
