Future is Here: Maruti Suzuki unveils SX4 Crossover and The Futuristic Ciaz sedan Concept Car at Auto Expo 2014

Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest carmaker, showed a pair of cars at day one of the 2014 Auto Expo. The first of these was the SX4 S-cross, a compact crossover that is built on a new platform and is roughly the size of a Renault Duster. Maruti Has a Plan To Positioned it above Renault Duster and #Nissan Terrano.

The front of the SX-4 S-Cross looks similar to other Maruti cars but also different than the regular SX4 sedan. This design won’t offend anyone and it does look fresh. There is body-cladding on all the doors and bumpers and this gives the SX4 S-Cross a very robust and rugged feel. While designing this vehicle, Suzuki engineers kept three things in mind – emotion, quality and aerodynamics. The overall body lines look good. The front bumper and side cladding has chrome trims which look classy. The wheel arches give the feel of a compact SUV. The whole Body is taken From Fiat sedici 4x4

The same theme is carried forward to the interiors of the SX4 S-Cross. Suzuki has made the interiors of the vehicle very appealing. Enough space is available for passengers in all seats and the boot space is good for carrying all your luggage. The silver inserts on the black seats look sporty and are a change from the regular beige that we see these days. 

The Rear Of SX4 Crossover is very attractive which can also be a notable point for Selling in Indian Market & its has a Running LED Daylight in front which makes it more Noticable. Other notable features on the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross include 5-star rating in Euro NCAP, double-glass sliding sunroof and 4-wheel-drive with ALLGRIP technology. But The sad part of this car is Pricing which can go high upto 10 to 15 lakhs.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

The other car shown was the Suzuki Ciaz sedan concept. The Suzuki Ciaz previews a future mid-size sedan, likely the SX4 replacement (codename: YL1) which will be sold in countries like China and eventually India. The concept car wears a wide chrome grille and large multi-element wraparound headlamps, that look in sync with Suzuki's modern design language, and the overall look is very sporty. The low roof, however, may not make it to production. 

The Concept Ciaz features a sporty character with the large hood and a swept back coupe like roofline. The rich vintage red colour with contrasting chrome accents on the concept gives a premium touch to the appearance of the car. The front features the distinctive Suzuki grille while the headlights feature Daytime running lights along with projector lamps. The concept car adopts a longer wheelbase and a low height giving the Ciaz the sedan styling. The wide bumper houses fog lamps with accentuated chrome accents that smartly have been integrated on the side profile of the concept, highlighting the body lines of the concept.

The car receives a strong shoulder line starting from the doors till the rear tail lamps while a smaller crease line runs down the shoulder line giving an aerodynamic look to the car. The rear on the other hand receives wraparound LED tail lamps, very similar to the ones on the all-new City, while the rear boot-lid along with the triangular shaped twin-exhausts blend together with sharp and dynamic lines to give the concept sporty and elegant looks.

The production version of the concept is expected to be more spacious on the inside and will feature a host of new equipment on offer. Powering the car will be the 1.4-litre K-Series (K14) petrol motor also seen on the Ertiga, albeit in a higher state of tune as opposed to the 1.6-litre petrol engine. The 1.3-litre DDiS is likely to be retained in the same powertrain. The company will offer both Manual and automatic transmissions on the Ciaz sedan. Expect the prices to be very aggressive considering the Maruti Ciaz will be competing against the segment benchmarks the all-new 2014 Honda City and the Hyundai Verna in its segment. The Ciaz sedan is likely to be launched in the second half of 2014 around the festive season in the country.
