Check out this sporty-looking modified Maruti Ciaz, which looks straight out of Fast and Furious franchisee
Maruti Ciaz is the best-selling vehicle in its segment, outselling its competitors by a huge margin. Its success can be traced to its frugal engine and relatively conservative look, both of which are attractive traits among middle-class buyers. That, however, also means that the Ciaz is a dull and boring car. Thankfully, there are people out there who specialise in modifying such mundane vehicles into an exciting one, just like the example we have below.
The modified Maruti Ciaz you see above has been built by ‘360 Motoring’ a custom car shop based in Calicut (Kozhikode), Kerela. The car looks absolutely stunning, with lots of extensive modifications done on the exterior of the car. Here we shall go through all the changes in detail, starting from the front-end.
The front grille is now a much larger unit than before and hexagonal in shape, very reminiscent of Audi cars. The blacked-out grille is contrasted by the bright yellow paint scheme of the car. The foglamp housings have given way to two large (but fake) air vents. There is a lip spoiler added under the front bumper, to add an additional sporty touch. The car sports projector headlamps with angel-eyed LEDs as well as LED strips. The wheels arches have been extended outwards to give this car a wider stance. Needless to say, from the front, this Ciaz looks like a proper sports saloon.
When viewed from the side, you’ll notice the deep-dish alloy wheels with low profile tyres. Due to the wide body kit, the rear wheels arches now extend into the rear doors, which is a brilliant design detail. At the rear, the car gets a huge, funky looking spoiler. When you’re not staring at the spoiler, you’ll also notice that the rear bumper has been redesigned, and sports a huge diffuser. The taillights have been blacked-out, which adds to the sporty character of the car.
This particular modified Maruti Ciaz is an older version, which sported a 1.4-litre petrol engine. It only made 90 PS of maximum power and 130 Nm of peak torque, respectively. The current model of the Ciaz is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol motor, which is capable of generating slightly higher peak power and torque figures of 105 PS and 138 Nm, respectively.
