Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is one of the best selling mid-size sedans in our country. It goes against other mid-size sedans like the Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris and Honda City. Many owners modified their Ciaz to look more sporty and aggressive. Well, here is another tastefully modified Ciaz that has been customized by Modsters Automotive and the video has been uploaded on their YouTube channel.
The project has been named “Toothless” and the modification has worked on the exterior as well as the exterior of the Ciaz. They have also worked on the engine with some performance mods.
They first gave the car a wrap in colour known as Matte Metallic Charcoal. There are also red accents over the front fog lamp housing, front fender, outside rearview mirrors and over the rear door.
The front bumper has been replaced with an after-market one. The bumper is inspired by an Audi which is visible as there is a huge front Audi-styled grille. The headlamps have been replaced with HID projectors with new LED Daytime Running Lamps. The headlights have a red bulb in them which goes with the red decals. It also has swiping turn indicators. There are also upgraded projector hi-low foglamps.
On the side, it is running on custom 15-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels sourced from Lenso. The windows of the Ciaz have been tinted which goes with an all-black theme. Then we come to the rear, where the modification shop has installed a Type ‘R’ spoiler and a rear diffuser. The stock tail lamps are placed with an LED setup and LED reflector strips are mounted in the bumper.
The interior of the sedan has also been redone. The stock seats have been upgraded with foamed seats with custom padding which are more comfortable. The Ciaz has also gone through soundproofing to enhance the NVH or Noise Vibration and Harshness levels.
The steering has been leather-wrapped. The 7D floor mats have also been installed. The stock infotainment system has been upgraded for an Android-powered touchscreen unit. The modification shop has also installed under dashboard lighting that lights up the footwell. Even the key fob of the Ciaz is customized. It has been finished in black with all the buttons on the fob coloured red.
The shop has also done some performance upgrades to the Ciaz. They have upgraded the air filter to a BMC unit. It is also running Pete’s Stage 1 Performance Remap. The modification shop also made a custom exhaust made up of stainless steel.
The vehicle that the shop worked on is a diesel version of the Ciaz. The Ciaz was offered with a 1.3-litre diesel engine which was upgraded to a 1.5-litre unit afterwards. The 1.3-litre diesel engine was sourced from Fiat.
It used to produce 88 bhp of max power and 200 Nm of peak torque. It was offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox only. The 1.5-litre diesel engine on other hand produced 94 bhp of max power and 225 Nm of peak torque. It was also offered only with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Both the diesel engines are now discontinued because of the BS6 emission norms.
