Maruti Suzuki is working on an all-new 1.5-litre diesel engine to power its wide range of cars including Ciaz, Vitara Brezza, Ertiga and S-Cross. This engine will replace the tried & tested 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine, which is basically the Fiat's 1.3L MJD unit. The Fiat-sourced powertrain will not receive any upgrade to meet the upcoming BSVI emission norms and will be phase out from the market in early 2019.

If latest media report is to be believed, the new 1.5-litre diesel engine will be first offered on the Ciaz as an option. The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz sedan with new diesel engine is also reported to be launched in the next few months. The sedan will receive the 1,498cc, 4-cylinder, DDiS 225 engine, which will miss out on the Suzuki's mild-hybrid system (SHVS). This powertrain churns out a maximum power output of 94bhp at 4,000rpm and a peak torque of 225Nm between 1,500-2,500rpm. It is claimed to be lightweight and has a dual mass flywheel. The Ciaz's 1.5L diesel engine is claimed to return an impressive fuel economy of 26.82kmpl.

The company will continue to offer the Ciaz with the existing 1.3-litre DDiS diesel unit till April 2020. This 4-cylinder engine churns out a maximum power output of 89bhp and a peak torque of 200Nm. The Ciaz is also available with a 1.5-litre petrol engine with a dual-battery SHVS system. It is capable of producing 103bhp of power and 138Nm of torque.

The new-gen Ertiga will be the second Maruti car to feature this new 1.5-litre diesel engine. This engine is not likely to power the Baleno, Swift and Dzire. Instead, Maruti Suzuki is aiming at strong hybrids and CNG options for these popular cars. The company will soon launch the new-gen Wagon R hatchback, which will be available in petrol, CNG and LPG fuel options.
