The 2021 Suzuki Ciaz has just been refreshed for the Philippine market. Suzuki’s Vios competitor sports an updated exterior and interior design, new features, and the discontinuation of a manual variant.
Suzuki’s upgrades to the Ciaz include a new, more modern grille, sportier front bumper, new projector headlights, and new foglight housings. The side and rear of the Ciaz remain largely unchanged for this year. This sole GL AT variant on sale also rides on a set of 15-inch alloy wheels.
While the interior design is largely unchanged, the 2021 Suzuki Ciaz now comes with an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The seats now feature a black and brown color scheme, along with silver accents in various places of the interior. The rear occupants benefit from armrests with cupholders, which is a rarity in this class.
The 2021 Suzuki Ciaz is still powered by the same 1.4-liter inline-4 gasoline engine as before, which means it produces 91 hp and 130 Nm of torque. As mentioned, no manual transmission is being offered anymore. Instead, your only transmission choice this time around is a 4-speed automatic.
As for safety, the facelifted Ciaz’s equipment list includes the usual ABS with EBD, dual SRS airbags, reverse camera, and rear parking sensors. Unfortunately, the Ciaz does not feature a three-point seatbelt for the middle rear passenger, or even hill start assist and electronic stability control.
The new 2021 Suzuki Ciaz is now on sale across all Suzuki dealers nationwide with a price tag of P888,000.
