Maruti Suzuki launched the Ciaz with company’s in-house 1.5-litre DDiS 225 Diesel at a starting price of Rs 9.97 lakh. For the first time, the Ciaz gets the new 1.5L diesel engine that will boast of good fuel efficiency, better performance as well as torque and power and not to forget that the new engine also gets refined NVH performance, as claimed by Maruti Suzuki. The updated Ciaz is available in three variants – Delta variant priced at Rs 9.97 lakh, Zeta variant with a price tag of Rs 11.08 lakh and top-end variant Alpha gets a tag of Rs 11.37 lakh (all prices, Ex-showroom, Delhi).

More interestingly, this time the new 1.5L diesel misses out on the company mild hybrid technology, though, the petrol version is offered with a mild hybrid technology. And if we compare the pricing of the newly launched version and the one with a 1.3-litre diesel engine – the lower variants are now pricier, whereas the new top-end Alpha variant is higher by Rs 35,000. That said, the new engine will also get higher low-end torque, making it a better ride for the city, good NVH performance, and best-in-class fuel economy.

With the launch of the 1.5-litre diesel engine, Maruti Suzuki has finally stepped forward and now has the 1.5L capacity unit available for both petrol and diesel variants. Being one of the best-selling products of the company, the range-topping variant Alpha accounts for 54 percent of the models' total sales.
