Maruti Suzuki is gearing up for the launch of the much-awaited new-generation Wagon R hatchback. Scheduled to be launched on the new Heartect platform, the new Wagon R is bigger, more powerful and feature-loaded than the previous model. Adding to it, Maruti will also launch the Baleno facelift in the country in the end of January 2019. It was reported that Maruti Suzuki will introduce the new in-house developed 1.5-litre diesel engine in the new Ciaz. A new media report is claiming that the Maruti Ciaz with an all-new 1.5-litre diesel engine will be launched in February 2019.

Not just Ciaz, this diesel engine will also power the Vitara Brezza, S-Cross and the new-generation Ertiga MPV. Codenamed 'E15A', the 1.5L diesel engine will not replace the existing 1.3L D13A powertrain initially. Both the engines will be on offer, with the 1.3L unit being more economical and cheaper than the new 1.5L unit. The new engine will be BSVI ready and will be converted to BSVI by April 2020, while the existing D13A engine will be phased out and won't receive an upgrade to meet the new BSVI emission norms.

This in-house developed engine will carry 'DDiS 225' branding in the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. This 4-cylinder diesel engine is capable of producing 94bhp of maximum power at 4,000rpm and a peak torque of 225Nm at 1,500-2,500rpm. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The current Maruti Ciaz petrol and diesel models are equipped with Suzuki's mild-hybrid system called SHVS. This technology reduces fuel consumption and enhances performance. It is yet to be confirmed whether the SHVS system will be available with the 1.5L diesel engine. The new Ciaz 1.5L version will be significantly expensive than the outgoing model. While the current Ciaz 1.3L is priced at 9.19 lakh for base Sigma variant, the upcoming model with 1.5L is likely to start around Rs 10 lakh.
