Suzuki has launched the 2017 Suzuki Alivio Pro (Ciaz facelift) in China. The facelift is available in three trims with prices starting from CNY 93,900 to 109,900 (PKR 14.83 lac to PKR 17.35 lac).
Unveiled at Chengdu Auto Show in August, the Suzuki Alivio Pro features a redesigned new chrome single piece grille, restyled front bumper with black fog lamp housings, new 16-inch alloy wheels, and a dual tone rear bumper with chrome embellishments around the reflector units. The cabin features an all-black treatment.
Features on offer include reverse parking camera, electric sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and push-button start, paddle shifters, automatic headlights, electric fold and adjust for ORVMs, cruise control auto air-conditioning, and rear AC vents.
The Suzuki Alivio Pro is powered by a 1.6 liter G-INNOTEC petrol engine that produces 122 hp and 158 Nm mated to either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearboxes. The Suzuki Ciaz facelift is expected to reach other Asian markets including India and Thailand towards the first half of 2018.
Changes to the Ciaz sedan are expected to be similar to the Chinese Suzuki Alivio Pro. Bear in mind China was the first market to get the Suzuki Alivio (Ciaz) back in 2014, soon followed by India and Latin American markets.
