The Ciaz sedan got it’s last update in September, 2015. Though there are no changes to the petrol car, the diesel model is the first one to use the Smart Hybrid Vehicle from Suzuki (SHVS) technology. The hybrid version works great in tandom with the diesel engine and thus helps to improves the fuel efficiency of the popular C-segment sedan.
The Ciaz’s is based on the Suzuki Authentics concept which was showcased the first time at the 2014 Shanghai Motor Show in April. It was then shown in production form as the China-spec Alivio sedan. The Ciaz looks great woth aggressive front fascia with a trapezoidal front grille that also features ample amount of chrome on it. The street presence is further enhanced by the sweptback headlights and the elongated hood. The side profile though is a rather conservative affair but certainly works for Maruti Suzuki. It features chrome door handles, delicately flared wheel arches and a strong shoulder line which works great with the forward leaning stance of the C segment sedan.
Coming to the rear, the Ciaz has got standard wrap around tail lamps which give the car a very premium look. The rear bumper is large enough to acommodate integrated reflectors. The Ciaz also a boasts of a spoiler and has chrome badges across all the variants.
Now coming to it’s interiors, the Ciaz has a rather simple as well as a clutter-free design. The dashboard design is quite reminiscent of some other Maruti models such as the Swift Dzire and the Ertiga with its all-beige treatment. The car gets great features like keyless entry and start, USB, Aux-in,Bluetooth streaming with telephony, automatic retract for the ORVMs, reverse camera and navigation system. It also has a sunshade for the rear windscreen, which will be much appreciated by passengers at the rear.

The Ciaz has an integrated audio system with a touch screen. This is the first in the segment. The steering has controls for the audio system as well as the telephony controls on the left which is unlike the competition that has buttons spread on both sides. The light colour of the upholstery, faux-wood and aluminium inserts and plastics give a bright and roomy feel to the interior. When it comes to safety, all except the base variant get ABS-EBD as well as front airbags. The base variant has only driver-side airbag.
