Ever since its launch in Indian market in 2014, Maruti ciaz is waiting for a mid-lifecycle facelift which is expected to materialize in mid-2018. The big breaking news is, however, is the introduction of new 1.5-liter K-series petrol engine that the company will be putting under the bonnet of the facelift version.

The new K-Series petrol engine will displace 1.5-liter and is expected to make 104 bhp and 139Nm of Max Power and max torque respectively. The existing 1.4-liter puts out 92 bhp and 130Nm which is although enough for most of the city maneuvers feels insufficient on the highway overtaking. The additional power and torque help the Maruti ciaz to perform at par with the competition and shrug off an under-powered tag often attached with its performance. It is also likely that Maruti will use this new 1.5-liter petrol motor in the facelift version of Ertiga MPV which is also slated to be launched in the market around festive season of 2018.

Both on the outside and inside, Maruti is expected to update the car quite comprehensively. The front and rear end will be different featuring cosmetic changes in terms of new headlamps and DRLs. Inside the cabin too, in addition to the trim change, Maruti could also stuff some more features to enhance further the value for money proposition of the car. It is to be worth noting that since its launch in the Indian market in 2014, Maruti Ciaz hasn't got any specific update, still, it is doing very well in the market despite stiff competition from the Honda City and Hyundai Verna.
