So guys who are planning to buy in near future better check it out. To me, it felt like checking out a hot chick at my own wedding.
Thats really good news. I have always hated beige interiors, what with the effort needed to maintain them, especially if you have kids in the house. But I think the sports edition in accordance to Maruti tradition should cost higher than the top spec version. I wish they would bring out some midspec version with black interiors. And could you post a pic here. Are there side skirts and dual paints which have become obligatory for Maruti sports editions.

It was the top variant. It did have side skirts. Still nothing offensive about the design though and it looked cool to me.
It did not have any sticker job/funny looking paint anywhere. The car was displayed in Showroom so I think this will be the final version.

Hello

Which dealership in Gurgaon are you alluding to? I too would like to check the car out.

I'm pretty sure the car wouldn't have been at a great speed so the damage has really surprised me about the build quality of Maruti!

Please check out this video. This is an at home solution for removing dents on a bumper. I haven't tried it out myself. But it seems to be an easy workaround over the standard procedure of heating the bumper to relieve a dent.

Ok. I called up a dealership here in Gurgaon. He confirmed that such a model will be out this week. A spoiler and side skirting was all he knew about as the changes in the car.

He had earlier told me that Z+ version has 175 mm of GC - 5 mm for than the other trims due to an extra inch in the alloys. By how many mm can we expect the GC to drop by with the new skirting coming in? 10 mm?

Alternatively, one may also use a hair dryer instead of hot water to heat the affected area. Slightly better control over the area being heated and you won't run out of hot air in the middle of heating.

The new version is called CIAZ RS and has an all black interior and grey / chrome finish instrument panel.

Petrol variant: 9.2lacs ex-showroom Delhi

The RS logo is a welcome (premium) change from the Z/V/X/D/i + - divide multiply

How I wish they had put in Cruise control, or atleast DRLs, or some chrome on the rear exhausts like they were in the concept car

How much is the ZXi+ now then ? The ZXi+ was around 9.5 lakhs ExShowroom. How did the ZXi+ RS end up lower by 30k. What's missing ?

Update
---------
Checked the specification in the CIAZ website. RS has everything that the ZXi+ has, plus black interiors, spoilers etc and is 30k cheaper is the new holds good. Interesting pricing. Wonder how Suzuki justifies the pricing.

ZXi+ is priced at 9.06lacs and the RS is priced at 9.2lacs. I feel a good price and the interiors look smashing now.

I am sorry. You are right. I was comparing it to the prices in Bangalore where the ZXi+ is 9.5 Ex ShowRoom Approx.

Just had a short drive of my car with SHVS. In first gear, the car simply creeps forward without any accelerator input when I start leaving completely depressed clutch. Now, this is handy. But is it new, as there is no mention of this in official review?
Additionally, SHVS does help in picking up during low RPM. This is my experience. The help doesn't really compensates for the lack of turbo but nevertheless makes low end driving much more palatable.

A friend of mine bought the RS version, Had a quick sneak peak, and must say black interiors look really nice! I found the rear bodykit just about to be okay, Front end was much better! Liked the RS badge too.

The RS edition could have been the icing on the cake if it had the 1.4Tjet engine from the Punto abarth with uprated brakes and a firmer suspension with anti roll bars all around. The 1.6 DDIS engine if it were smoother could too also have been mated to this car for a 1.5 lakh premium but because of its added weight and lumpy/gruff nature I doubt whether the 1.6DDIS will ever find its way into the Ciaz. I shall be signing the cheque the day they shove in the 1.4tjet 145bhp version into the CiazRS for a Rs80000 premium. If wishes were Buffaloes , Lalu or Azam Khan would be Prime Minister. Shudder to think of the simile.
