Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

  • Called DDiS 225, the new engine makes 95.1PS/225Nm.
  • It will be mated to a 6-speed MT.
  • Will be sold alongside the 1.3-litre DDiS 200 on both the Ciaz and Ertiga.
  • Maruti might introduce this engine on the S-Cross at a later stage.

2018 Ertiga

Maruti is planning to introduce a new 1.5-litre diesel engine on the Ciaz and the Ertiga. As reported earlier by CarDekho, this new engine makes 95.1PS of maximum power and 225Nm of peak torque. An official document now confirms that both the Maruti cars will get this engine on all variants except for the base Sigma (Ciaz) and LDI (Ertiga).

Maruti Ciaz 1.5L Diesel

Sources aware of the development had earlier informed CarDekho that the 1.5-litre diesel engine will not get the mild-hybrid SHVS system and documents confirm the same. Both the current 1.5-litre petrol and the 1.3-litre diesel units on the Ciaz and the Ertiga are available with SHVS mild hybrid system. But while the 1.3-litre unit gets the older single-battery hybrid system, the 1.5-litre petrol engine is equipped with a dual-battery (one is Li-ion) hybrid system.

Maruti Ertiga 1.5L Diesel

The new diesel engine will also be paired with a new transmission, a 6-speed manual. The powertrain will reportedly be able to deliver a fuel economy figure of 26.82kmpl on the Ciaz -- less than the Ciaz 1.3D by 1.27kmpl.

At launch, the new 1.5-litre engine will be BSIV-compliant. But Maruti will update it as per the BSVI norms before April 2020. Once the BSVI norms are implemented, expect this engine to make way to other Maruti cars as well, replacing the 1.3-litre diesel engine.

2018 Ertiga

With the introduction of the new 1.5-litre DDiS 225 engine the two Maruti cars will have three engines options on offer: 1.5-litre petrol, 1.3-litre diesel and 1.5-litre diesel. We expect the new engine to be priced at a premium over the 1.3-litre diesel models. Currently, the 1.3L diesel Ertiga is priced from Rs 8.84 lakh to Rs 10.90 lakh while the Ciaz retails from Rs 9.19 lakh to Rs 11.02 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
