2018 Maruti Ciaz facelift has been spotted again as test mule wearing camouflage on the Indian roads. The new set of spy-shots reveal the front fascia of the facelifted sedan. Presently, the exact launch date of the updated Ciaz is not known but it is being learnt that it would be launched only after the launch of new-gen Swift hatchback, which would take place at the 2018 Auto Expo in February. The 2018 Maruti Ciaz would come with subtle cosmetic changes, while mechanically it is expected to retain the same set of gasoline and diesel mills.

Going by the spy-shots, it is pretty clear that styling of the 2018 Ciaz facelift is different from that of Suzuki Alivio Pro. The India-spec sedan would retain the front grille layout from the ongoing model. Though, the upper and lower grilles would have new designs, while the bumper is also updated with more spacing for the fog lamp housings. The side profile too is identical to the current model with the same pattern of alloys. Coming to the rear end, it seems as if nothing really has gone under the hammer as the sedan boasts of the same tail-lamp cluster as the current model. Inside, the facelifted Ciaz would have an unchanged cabin, except for a few subtle updates in form of new upholstery and upgraded infotainment system.

Mechanically, the 2018 Maruti Ciaz facelift would be offered with the same petrol and diesel engines. The petrol variants would be powered by the same 1.4L engine which generates maximum power of 91bhp and peak torque of 130Nm. The diesel variants would also retain the Fiat-sourced 1.3L engine which churns out top power of 89bhp and highest torque of 200Nm. Both the engines would be linked to a 5-speed manual transmission, while the petrol line-up would also get an automatic variant with the 4-speed gearbox at the helm of affairs. It is quite unlikely that Maruti Suzuki would opt for any mechanical update in the MY 2018. Maruti Ciaz would take on the likes of Hyundai Verna, Honda City, Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento in the Indian market.
