Suzuki Ciaz (also known as Suzuki Alivio), a compact car, was launched in 2014. The mid-sized sedan replaced Suzuki SX4 in Latin American and Asian auto markets. In India, the car is known as Maruti Ciaz and is quite popular. It is in direct competition in Indian auto market with Honda City, Nissan Sunny, Hyundai Verna, VW Vento, and Renault Scana. The car is in demand because of its salient features, spacious interior, comfortable cabin, powerful engine, and fuel-economy.
Suzuki Ciaz has an attractive look that gives a wonderful first impression. The Swept-back headlamps, long bonnet with pleasing lines and angles, trapezoidal chrome grill, and overall a vibrant look give a lovely first impression. The car looks quite big from the side view. It has a big bumper and stylish tail lamp design. In India, this car is available different colors that include Pearl Metallic Dignity Brown, Pearl Sangria Red, Pearl Snow White, Metallic Silky Silver, Metallic Glistening Grey, Metallic Clear Beige, and Pearl Midnight Black.
The Ciaz comes with a spacious interior and provides enough legroom room for the passengers. Three passengers can easily adjust on rear seats. Simple lines and an uncluttered look, make the dashboard quite simple and straightforward. A large 7-inch easy-to-use touchscreen is placed on the center console. Climate control, Keyless start, multi-media music system, and navigation system (in top-end variant) are other salient features of this car.
In India, Suzuki Ciaz comes with two engines – 1.3L MultiJet diesel and 1.4L K-Series petrol. 1.6L G INNOTEC petrol is available only in China.
The 1.4L K-series petrol engine can produce 91 HP at 6,000 rpm and 130 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. The 1.4l engine might seem insufficient for a mid-size sedan, but Ciaz is quite lightweight. The 1.3L diesel engine can produce 89 HP at 4,000 rpm.
Suzuki Ciaz comes with 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic (petrol only) transmission. In India, Maruti claimed impressive fuel economy of 26 km/l for diesel engine and 21 km/l for petrol engine.
The Ciaz is a quite comfortable family car that could be popular in Pakistan. It appears that Pak-Suzuki has plans to launch this car in Pakistan in the near future. Let’s wait for that day!
