Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S launched, prices start at Rs 9.39 lakh

Maruti Suzuki has launched Ciaz S Sedan in a more sleek, elegant and sporty form.

Some say Maruti Suzuki's premium sedan Ciaz is not sporty enough.

"Introduction of Ciaz S will further strengthen the position of Ciaz in the market by catering to the requirements of a younger yet premium customer who believes in the sporty spirit of life", MSI Senior Executive Director Marketing and Sales R S Kalsi said in a statement.

The Ciaz S variant gets all the equipment offered as standard on the Delta trim and it has been priced Rs 9.39 lakh for petrol and Rs 11.55 lakh for diesel variant (ex-showroom Delhi).

South Indian acting star and politician Nandamuri Balakrishna is well known for his temper issues. Earlier, he was caught assaulting an Assistant Director on the sets of his untitled film.

Furthermore, Marit Ciaz S gets several visual updates like the beefy rear bumper with sculpted lines, larger rear spoiler, and new front and side under spoilers besides others.

Inside, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S comes equipped with an all black theme, chrome accents for the cabin and leather upholstery.

The Ciaz S can be looked at as a reincarnation of the Ciaz RS which was discontinued before the model was moved to Maruti's premium dealership, Nexa. In 2015 the company has introduced the Ciaz RS which only came with some minor updates like a small trunk-lid mounted spoiler and updated interior. Maruti Ciaz S petrol variant users can choose between the 5-speed manual gearbox and 4-speed auto gearbox variants. The Ciaz S will be available in both petrol and diesel trims and will feature all benefits of Ciaz Alpha. The sedan competes against the Honda City, Skoda Rapid, Volkswagen Vento and the upcoming Hyundai Verna.

While the new sports version of the vehicle goes full speed on the road, the vehicle also has decent safety features including dual airbags - for front seats, seat belt pre-tensioner and child seat restraint system. Sadly, Ciaz S diesel buyers have no option expect to confine for the 5-speed manual unit.
