A new larger front grille will be seen on this new car, followed by pulled back headlamps. Maruti has done a stunning job with the design. This sedan has good road presence and is in fact, the longest sedan in its category. The long proportions of the car give it a very premium look. The facelifted Ciaz distinguishes itself with a new grille design with chrome garnish on higher-spec trims and LED headlamps and tail-lamps, new front and rear bumpers and 16-inch alloy wheels on the top-spec variant.
