Maruti Ciaz 1.5 Diesel Goes On Sale, Price Starts Rs 9.97 Lakh

  • Mar 29, 2019

Maruti-Suzuki has finally launched the Ciaz facelift with a new, in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel engine. Prior to this, the Ciaz had a Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre Multijet engine under the hood. Although the company will continue to offer this engine, the complete dependency on Fiat is now reduced.

The new 1.5-litre diesel engine generates 5PS more power and 25Nm more torque than the 1.3-litre unit. This takes the final power and torque of the new Ciaz to 95PS at 4,000rpm and 225Nm between 1,500 and 2,000rpm. The new engine comes coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission and the automaker claims that the Ciaz with a 1.5-litre engine is capable of yielding a fuel efficiency of 26.82Kmpl.

The 1.3-litre engine, on the other hand, produces a max power of 90PS at 4,000rpm and a peak torque of 200Nm at 1,750rpm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Ciaz mild-hybrid tech is not on offer with the new engine but continues to come with the 1.3-litre engine.

Out of the four variants, only the base Sigma does not get the new engine, while the rest have been benefitted with the new one. On the features front, the automaker hasn’t altered anything and all the Ciaz variants continue to come with the same set of features as before.

Aside from the Ciaz, we expect that the new Ertiga will also get the 1.5-litre diesel power mill soon. The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is also available with the petrol engine, 1.5-litre K15 unit that debuted last year with the Ciaz facelift.

As far as pricing is concerned, the Ciaz Delta (with 1.5-litre engine) variant is priced at Rs 9.97 Lakh and the top-spec Ciaz Alpha (with 1.5-litre engine) at Rs 11.37 Lakh (both prices ex-showroom Delhi). You can find the variant-wise price list below.

Variants (Diesel) 1.3-litre 1.5-litre
Sigma Rs 9.19 lakh NA
Delta Rs 9.80 lakh Rs 9.97 lakh (+ 17K)
Zeta Rs 10.62 lakh Rs 11.08 lakh (+ 46K)
Alpha Rs 11.02 lakh Rs 11.37 lakh (+35K)
