The Ciaz has been one of the successful products from Maruti Suzuki stable as similar products from the Indo-Japanese carmaker had failed to attract consumers in the past. Some of these models include the SX4, Baleno sedan and the premium sedan Kizashi. All these vehicles failed to have a long-lasting effect in the segment. With Ciaz the automaker was able to capture a significant share of the C-segment in the sedan segment.
