The BSVI Maruti Ciaz S, the sporty version of the long-standing Honda City-rival, has been spotted at a dealership with a dual-tone white-and-black colour scheme.
The Maruti Ciaz S sets itself apart from the normal variant with the sportier design with many darkened components and black accentuations. Other outstanding different features include black fog light garnish, dark headlights, 16-inch black alloy rims, black side skirts, black upper spoiler, two-tone rear lower spoiler and black ORVM caps. The Ciaz S featured in the below images comes with a Pearl Snow White paint scheme, which makes the car look elegant. The interior features an all-black colour scheme and silver inserts on the instrument panel and the door trim. The S variant is also equipped with a new Smartplay Studio touchscreen infotainment unit.
The new Maruti Ciaz S has the same powertrains as the Ciaz. Both of the two vehicles keep under their hood an updated BSVI dual-battery SHVS-equipped K15B gasoline burner which can produce 104.96 PS (77 kW) at 6,000 rpm against 138 Nm against 4,400 rpm. The transmission duties are undertaken by a 5-speed MT unit or a 4-speed AT one.
The most major differences between the Maruti Ciaz S and the normal S lie in their styling as the former gets some sporty add-ons and a dual-tone colour shade.
Besides, the Maruti Ciaz diesel will continue to be powered by the BSIV D13A 1.3-litre oil burner which can produce 89.74 PS against 200 Nm with the addition of the new BSIV E15A 1.5-litre diesel unit which can deliver 95.17 PS against 225 Nm. While the former is mated to a 5-speed MT unit and have a fuel mileage of 28.09 kmpl, the latter is paired with a 6-speed MT and can churn out a fuel economy of 28.09 kmpl.
Sporty adornments available on the Ciaz S include bumper skirts, side skirts and a trunk-lid spoiler.
The less powerful motor is packed with a single-battery SHVS mild-hybrid system. By the time the BSVI emission standards take effect, both of the diesel motors are expected to be shelved from the lineup.
