The updated Suzuki Ciaz is the first model to feature the new engine that’s been called DDiS 225. According to the company, the “engine offers improved performance, best in class fuel efficiency, enhanced torque and power with refined NVH performance to thrill customers seeking higher performance cars from Suzuki.”This all-aluminum engine churns out 94 bhp and delivers a peak torque of 225 Nm between 1500-2500 RPM. In addition to the new 1.5 litre diesel engine, the Ciaz will also get a newly designed 6-speed transmission. The company claims a certified fuel efficiency figure of 26.82 kmpl (ARAI Certified).
