Maruti Suzuki is preparing to launch the 2018 Ciaz facelift in India on 20th August and the fuel economy figures have been leaked online ahead of the much anticipated launch. The leaked figures show one of the notable changes on the car will be its new petrol engine. Suzuki’s new 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine will replace the outgoing car’s 1.4-litre K14B motor. The new engine will be capable of making 104 hp of maximum and 138.4 Nm of peak torque, which is 12 hp and 8.4 Nm more than that of the outgoing unit.
The leaked details also indicate the new petrol version being even more fuel efficient. The sources from Maruti Suzuki say that the new Ciaz petrol’s official ARAI-tested fuel economy stands at 21.56 kmpl for the manual version and 20.28 kmpl for the automatic, while that of the outgoing model stand at 20.73 kmpl for the manual and 19.12 kmpl for the automatic. However, before the new fuel economy figures too, Ciaz was one of the most fuel efficient sedans in the segment.
