Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Is Moving To Premium NEXA Dealerships

Maruti Suzuki’s popular midsize sedan – Ciaz – will be retailed through NEXA premium sales network from April 1, 2017. That means, it won’t be available at regular Maruti Suzuki dealerships anymore. Besides moving to NEXA, the 2017 Maruti Ciaz receives a new Nexa Blue shade. The company has also discontinued the Metallic Beige shade on the carline. No mechanical or design changes have been made to the car.

First launched in October 2014, the Maruti Ciaz turned out to be a runaway success for the Indo-Japanese carmaker in India. The saloon achieved 1 lakh sales milestone in June 2016, and continues to be a volume-generator for the brand. With an aim to make it safer, Maruti introduced ISOFIX mounts as standard safety fitment on the Ciaz in November 2016. The saloon is also certified for offset and side impact crash tests and pedestrian safety ahead of norms. Ticking all the right boxes, the Maruti Ciaz has emerged as the segment leader within a very short span of time. Beating its closest rival – Honda City, the Ciaz recorded 22% growth with sales of 60,000 units during April – February 2016-17.

Executive Director (Marketing and Sales) Maruti Suzuki India Limited R S Kalsi said: “Today, NEXA has established itself as a successful model with over 200,000 cars being delivered in less than two years of launch. Ciaz at NEXA gives us the confidence to do even better and strengthen the brand Maruti Suzuki.  Through this move, we will be able to offer the Nexa experience to new customers. At the same time, Ciaz will help us achieve our sustained long term goal of 20% sales through NEXA.”

Maruti Suzuki is already selling Ignis crossover, Baleno premium hatchback, Baleno RS performance hatchback and S-Cross premium crossover via NEXA showrooms. On January 30, 2017, the Indo-Japanese carmaker inaugurated its 200 NEXA outlet in Hyderabad. This premium retail channel has presence in 121 cities of the country, and has sold over 1.85 lakh cars since its inception. The company aims to expand NEXA network with a total of 250 outlets by the end of FY 2016-2017.
