With the Ciaz getting a new 1.5 diesel engine, we take a closer look at what else you get, and for how much.


Maruti Suzuki has finally begun saying goodbye to the Fiat-sourced, 1.3-litre diesel engine, starting with the Ciaz mid-size sedan. The Maruti sedan has been updated with an in-house developed, 1.5-litre diesel engine that makes 95hp and 225Nm of peak torque. Also new to the package is a 6-speed manual transmission. Unlike the petrol variants and the erstwhile diesel Ciaz, the new diesels give the Smart Hybrid system a miss.

While earlier the Ciaz 1.3 diesel was offered in four trim levels, the new 1.5 diesel drops the base Sigma variant. An interesting point to note is that the top-end Alpha version forms as much as 54 percent of the sedan’s total sales. The 2019 Ciaz Delta, Zeta and Alpha diesel variants have been launched at Rs 9.97 lakh, Rs 11.08 lakh and Rs 11.37 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively. As such, they command a premium of Rs 17,000, Rs 46,000 and Rs 35,000 over their corresponding older models.
