Elegant and Stylish exteriors
Ciaz is a blend of sportiness and elegance.

styling, Ciaz is tasteful, elegant and clutter-free. Straight lines impart a classy
European tinge to the sedan. As an industry first, the projector headlamps are being
offered as a standard feature across all trim levels of Ciaz. A strong shoulder
line, running all along the length, lends dynamism and balance to the Ciaz. The
signature Suzuki “S” logo sits elegantly on the front chrome grille and on the sedan’s
tail. Ornamental door beltline, chic chrome door handles, front fog lamps, Integrated
turn indicators on the electrically foldable ORVM, premium split tail lamps and
chrome garnished trunk lid, lend finesse to the Ciaz.
Seamless and clutter-free interiors
The cabin’s enhanced leg room, headroom and shoulder room for all occupants is a
clear differentiator. Ergonomically designed seats offer superior comfort. The driver
seat placement enables best-in-class front and rear road visibility. The premium
black-and-beige interior theme, with luxurious wooden garnish and chrome accents
looks chic and contemporary.
Smart engines for top notch fuel efficiency

engine and refined DDiS200 diesel engine.
Smartly integrated, the next generation K14 VVT 1.4 litre petrol engine delivers
a class leading fuel efficiency of 20.73 kmpl.
Similarly, smart engine packaging and integration of the acclaimed DDiS200 1.3 litre
engine returns fuel efficiency of 26.21 kmpl making it India’s most fuel efficient
Several refinements in powertrain, suspension and adequate use of noise dampeners
at appropriate places have resulted in a quieter cabin.
