Can you share a picture of what you are seeing? I am guessing its low battery on your key fob rather than main battery...just guessing !

Yes 2 years is too early. Have it inspected.

In my 2 month old Ciaz, low battery warning comes up when I restart with AC, music system and parking lights running post a stall in traffic. It goes away in 5-10 minutes.

Oh yes, it may be the key fob too. I will get the other keyfob and check it.

Here is the pic, it stays for like 5 seconds even after starting the engine. Normally it wont. Not the red icon showing battery, the yellow one showing "cell"

Ahhh relax ! this is for the fob cells going weak ( the one in yellow ) and not the the actual battery.

Sorry I didn't notice any update on this. Kindly let us know because this is the only area where I want my car to improve on.

The same thing happened to my Dad too during his drive. He thought that it was some issue with the car battery and went straight to the Service Center. Service Center guys found out the issue with the Key Fob battery going low and promptly replaced the Battery.
Cost incurred :
Battery : Rs 100 + GST = Rs 18
Labour Charges : Rs 100
Total : Rs 218

Battery price at local shop: Rs 50
Steps as to how to Replace the battery clearly provided in the manual.

Had he just checked the manual before rushing to the service center, he could have saved : Rs 168

I had picked up my Ciaz Alpha AT in July and have driven about 2300 kms. I feel that the tyre noise in my car is too high.

Is it something to be expected or is it because of the present OEM Tyres (Apollo).
Or should I ask MSIL to replace my tyres.
But the thing is they will again replace with one of the OEM tyres Apollo or MRF etc.

Any suggestions / advise will be helpful.

Not sure with Apollo, but mine with Good Year Assurance Triple Max the sound is on an acceptable limit even on highways.

When do you feel the noise to be intruding (on what kind of road it is and at what speed) this will give a fair idea of other whose vehicle is on the same shoes. Do a comparative drive on one with similar odometer reading and the of course with the same tire. If there is no relative difference then the only alternative is to switch with premium brands.

Cheers!

I have a basic floor mat in my 2017 Ciaz and I am considering multi dimensional mats. Sites like TVS's Jazzmyride and Amazon say that the floor layout of 2016/7 is different from 2014-15 models. Is this true ?

Thanks for your reply...tyre noise is mostly felt when at steady speeds of over 80 KMPH on the Noida - Greater Noida Express Highway & DND Flyway which is approximately 70% of my drive to and from office every day.

Changing tyres at this stage is out of the question unless I am able to convince MSIL to replace under warranty.

Both cars are identical dimensionally. You can order one without any worry.

Ciaz Facelift:

- Planned launch: June/July 2018, with production commencing from April 2018.

- New petrol engine from K-Series (not M-Series) which is N/A version (not turbo).

- New CVT transmission might come.

- Larger colour MID in the pipeline. Similar unit to the Baleno.

Is a 1.5L version of the K-series engine is coming? The max displacement K-engine they have as of now is 1.4L.

I would prefer a 1.2L Boosterjet Turbo engine that can produce 125BHP. If it can be produced locally, it can be priced at the same level as of 1.4L NA engine, IMO. The same engine can be used in the Brezza and S-Cross as well, as 1L Boosterjet seems too small, while 1.4L Boosterjet is too much for them, IMO.

Still looking for a low-cost engine? Add a Turbo to the 1.2L G-series available with Maruti!

I'm not sure if the changes will make it a competitive product. Ciaz has so many good things going except for the engine and auto gearbox. What happened to the 1.5l new diesel mill that they were testing?
Coloured MId as a major change seems a poor effort from MSIL
