Exterior Design and Features of 2018
Maruti Suzuki CIaz
The exterior of the new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has been tweaked
to some extent. No, it does not come with a sunroof, rather the front has a new
grille and bumper. It now has new auto LED projector headlamps with DRLs and
even the fog lamps are LED with chrome garnish. The rear gets an LED
combination lamp. With chrome bezels on front and rear fascia, the car definitely
looks quite elegant. The rear bezels, in fact, give the impression that the car
has dual exhausts. To add to the elegant looks are the 16 inches alloy wheels
in dual tone metallic pebble grey finish. The car comes with electrically
adjustable and foldable ORVMs. Though the new Ciaz has power windows, it is
only the driver side that gets an auto up/down feature with anti-pinch.

The elegant character of the new Ciaz is not confined to
the exterior alone. Inside, you get to see a brand new setting with new Birch
blonde wood grain accents that have an uber low gloss finish, satin chrome
highlights on the dashboard and door trims, a new 4.2” Multi information
colored TFT display and a speedometer which changes its colour depending on the
driving pattern. Displays on the screen include fuel consumption, energy flow,
trip details, driving range and gear shift indicator, which however is not
there in the automatic. There is no compromise on the tech front with a touch
screen that allows you functions like radio, navigation, call etc. The 17.8 cm
touchscreen Smartplay infotainment system is compatible with Apple CarPlay,
Android Auto and Mirror Link.
The steering wheel can be adjusted for
tilt but not for reach. There are several controls on the steering for
functions like voice command, volume control and cruise control.
The top end we drove came with leather
upholstery, a leather wrapped steering wheel, a lot of chrome garnish, etc.
While the front seats are manually adjustable but very comfortable, the rear
seats too are plush and practical. There is a rear AC vent and the seats come
with adjustable headrests. Leg room, knee room, shoulder room and head room are
very adequate. There is a boot space of 510 litres. Though there is a power
socket for the rear passengers, there are no direct USB slots at the rear.
Manually adjustable rear sunshade, rear reading lamps and ample storage spaces
makes the new Ciaz a very practical car.
