Maruti Suzuki has launched the updated Ciaz in India. The facelift Ciaz is available in 4 trims with prices starting at Rs. 8.19 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 9.19 lakh for the diesel version.

The Ciaz gets a revised front end featuring a new grille with chrome accents flanked by new LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs. The dual-tone front bumper houses a set of LED fog lamps, which have U-shaped silver trim around the pods. The rear of the car features updated LED tail lamps and a bumper with chrome inserts. The top-spec Alpha variant gets 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.

The updated Ciaz gets beige interiors. It has a dual-tone dashboard with faux wood trim and houses a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity and has inbuilt navigation, Bluetooth and voice commands. The car comes with a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and an updated twin-dial instrument cluster. The central MID has also been updated with a 4.2-inch colour display.

Powering the Ciaz is a new 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine with mild hybrid technology. This engine replaces the 1.4-litre unit and develops 103 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm @ 4,400 rpm of peak torque. It is paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
