The ZXi+ Ciaz is powered by the same 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 91bhp of power at 6,000 rpm and 130Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The AT variant is a four-speed automatic transmission and returns 19.12 km/l. The five-speed manual gearbox version delivers an ARAI-certified mileage of 20.73 km/l.
