Bookings for the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift are open now. The Nexa Outlet launch would commence from August 20. The Booking token amount is Rs 11,000. E-bookings can also be done via the Maruti’s official Nexa website

Reportedly, Maruti had delayed the launch in light of possible clash with the event of a rival company as well as to clear standing stocks of the Ciaz Sedan.

The Ciaz facelift will carry a redesigned and wider front grille along with new headlamps and a reprofiled hood and bumper. The headlamps appear to be LED and may have daytime running lights (DRL) below them. On the exterior front, the new car looks more rounded as opposed to the more angular design of the previous variant. The 2018 Ciaz stands on newly designed alloy wheels. The grille design seems to draw parallels with the new Ertiga MPV in Indonesia.

On the interior front, the reworked Ciaz comes draped in a lighter shade of faux wood and a slightly refreshed interior shade. The dashboard along with the steering wheel remains the same as the existing model. The car, however, gets a new multi-info display with a better instrument cluster.

Under the hood, a new 1.5-litre petrol engine will power the new variant. It can churn out 100PS of power. Despite the better power figures, the new Ciaz will offer more fuel efficiency, all thanks to the SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki). The engine like the previous variant will come mated to a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.
