Maruti Suzuki Ciaz 1.5-litre diesel details leaked

-The in-house developed 1498cc diesel engine will produce 70kW (94bhp).

-According to reports, it will deliver 225Nm between 1,500-2,500 rpm and will be paired with an all-new six-speed manual transmission.

-Expected to be revealed in coming few weeks.

Maruti Suzuki has been working on its all-new 1.5-litre diesel engine – which will replace the ageing 1.3-litre DDiS unit – for quite some time now. This new oil burner is being developed in-house by the carmaker. Now, a leaked document has revealed all the details of the new diesel engine ahead of its impending launch. 

The 1498cc four-cylinder BS-IV/OBS-II compliant diesel motor is capable of producing 70kW (which is approx. 94bhp) of power at 4000rpm. The torque stands at 225Nm and is available between 1,500-2,500rpm. The new engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, which too is all-new for Maruti Suzuki. 

The new diesel engine will be available in Delta, Zeta and Alpha trim while the entry-level Sigma variant will continue to use the old 1.3-litre engine. The company’s mild-hybrid system won’t be a part of the new 1.5-litre engine for now. On the other hand, the diesel motor is rumoured to have a fuel economy of around 26kmpl. The new 1.5-litre engine will also be housed in the new-gen Ertiga and the S-Cross. The engine will be available in the VDi, ZDi, and ZDi+ guise in the Ertiga. 

By April 2020, the 1.3-litre motor will be shelved for good. Meanwhile, this newly developed 1.5-litre DDiS 225 motor will be upgraded to BS-VI emission norms. Maruti had also mentioned that the diesel engine in BS-VI avatar is likely to cost almost Rs. 2.5 lakhs more than the equivalent petrol version. .
