Maruti Ciaz 1.5 Diesel has been launched in India for INR 9.97 lakh. The new engine is available with the DDiS 225 moniker, taking the total output up by 5 HP and 25 Nm on the new Ciaz. The engine is available from the Delta variant and claims 26.82 kmpl of mileage. As the new engine is here without the SHVS technology, the drop in mileage is the obvious result of missing features like brake energy regeneration and electric support to the engine. The new turbocharged diesel engine is BS6-ready and BS4-compliant at the moment. Maruti will update the engine to meet the strict emission norms later.
The 1.5L engine is good for 95 HP at 4000 rpm and 225 Nm at 1500-2500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. As Maruti has already faced issued with their first ever diesel engine for the Celerio, they have kept special care of the refinement part here. The new turbo diesel engine will be shared with Ertiga in the coming weeks and both the cars fall in a segment that demands high comfort level for the passengers. However, Maruti assures that the new engine is highly refined and comes with low NVH values.
Maruti Suzuki offers the Ciaz in Sigma, Delta, Zeta, and Alpha trim, using the automatic gearbox for the petrol engine on a limited number of variants. In the diesel guise, Ciaz is now available with two engine options. The car measures 2650mm in wheelbase and lead the class with additional 50mm of rear seat legroom. Here is a price list for both the diesel engines.
