NEXA today unveiled the Ciaz in a new dual-tone avatarand added safety features. The Ciaz now offers three new dual-tone colour options.
Introducing the dual-tone Ciaz, Mr. Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “We are thrilled to introduce the new Ciaz, featuring three new dual-tone colour options and additional safety features. The Ciaz has been a beloved choice among our customers and has attained remarkable success, completing eight years in the market. With its new avatar, we aim to further strengthen our position in the premium mid-size sedan segment.”
Equipped with over 20+ safety features, the Ciaz now comes with Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Hill Hold Assist* as standard along dual airbags, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX Child seat anchorage etc. Four airbags as standard or six airbags on top-end variant is still given a miss by Maruti. The addition of the new safety features already existed in the car’s top end variant earlier is not being transferred to all variants. Maruti could be on the verge of discontinuing the Ciaz as it is a 10-year-old car with barely two major upgrades in its lifecycle. Anything with the 1.5 litre motor is expected to be made with Toyota’s hybrid technology in the future.
Hyundai Verna 2023 is set to be launched in the next two months. Skoda Slavia and Volkswagen Virtus have taken a large chunk of the market. Honda City is set to get an upgrade as well despite an introduction of hybrid late last year.
The Ciaz is available with a choice of seven colour options and three new dual-tone colour options – Pearl Metallic Opulent Red with Black Roof, Pearl Metallic Grandeur Gray with Black roof and Dignity Brown with Black Roof. Based on the top Alpha variant, the Ciaz dual-tone is available at INR 11 14 500/- (Manual) and INR 12 34 500/- (Automatic) across 440+ NEXA showrooms in over 285 cities.
