Maruti Suzuki Ciaz 1.5L diesel with 6-speed MT spied testing ahead of launch

-The new 1.5-litre diesel motor and six-speed MT are designed in-house by Suzuki.

-The 1.5-litre E15A diesel motor makes 94 bhp and 225 Nm.

-It will replace the ageing Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre diesel motor.

Back in August 2018, Maruti Suzuki launched the Ciaz facelift in India with a new 1.5-litre petrol motor. However, the company retained the older 1.3-litre diesel engine without any updates. This is now set to change, as the company is expected to introduce an all-new 1.5-litre diesel motor that has been developed in-house by Suzuki, and will replace the ageing Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre motor. That said, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz was spied testing earlier this week with a 1.5-litre diesel and six-speed manual transmission.

The Maruti Ciaz 1.5L diesel is expected to be launched in the months to come. According to reports, the new 1.5-litre E15A DDiS 225 diesel motor will develop 94 bhp of power and 225 Nm of peak torque. The new engine will be BS-VI ready and will be updated to comply with the new emission norms. The new BS-VI emission norms will come into effect from 1 April 2020, and Maruti Suzuki has announced that it will start selling BS-VI compliant cars towards the end of this year or by January 2020 at the latest.

The Ciaz can also be had with a 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine that puts out 103 bhp and 138 Nm. It is offered with a five-speed manual or a four-speed torque converter automatic. Fiat India has already announced that it wouldn’t be updating the 1.3-litre diesel motor to meet BS-VI compliance. This means that the new 1.5-litre oil burner will be the only diesel motor housed in Maruti Suzuki cars.
