  • The Ciaz diesel came with Maruti’s 1.5-litre DDiS motor that develops 95PS and 225Nm.
  • It could make a comeback if Maruti updates the diesel motor to meet BS6 emission norms.
  • Petrol variants of the Ciaz have recently received BS6 upgrades. 

Maruti Suzuki has silently discontinued the Ciaz diesel ahead of the April 2020 BS6 deadline. India’s largest car manufacturer won’t be having a diesel portfolio in the initial phase of the BS6 era. And the Ciaz diesel is the first model to face the axe.

The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz utilised an in-house-developed 1.5-litre DDiS engine developing 95PS of power and 225Nm of torque. This motor can be had with a 6-speed manual only. The 1.5-litre DDiS motor is Maruti’s first in-house-developed four-cylinder diesel engine and we must admit, it has got it spot-on. Though the power delivery is linear, this engine is known for its refined, fun-to-drive and refined nature. Read our first drive review of the Ciaz diesel right here

Maruti Suzuki could bring an upgraded BS6-compliant version of the 1.5-litre DDiS engine in 2021 based on customer demand. If it makes a comeback, we expect it to be plonked in the Ciaz, Ertiga and the updated Vitara Brezza.
