Reports suggest that the Z+ (Zxi+ / Zdi+) variants of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz have been delayed due to some problem with the touchscreen infotainment system.

The car was launched just a week ago and seems like the niggles are already starting to show up. Deliveries for the Z+ variants are expected from January 2015. Those who were willing to get the top of the line variant might now have to wait for a longer time than they would expect, and with the model gaining popularity, the waiting period is expected to increase.

Noteworthy features on the Ciaz:

  • Segment first projector headlamps
  • Longest wheelbase in the segment
  • Best in class fuel efficiency of 26.21 kmpl for the diesel and 20.73 kmpl for the petrol
  • 16″ alloy wheels on the top model
  • Leather upholstery on the top model
  • Rear AC vents
  • True keyless entry

The Ciaz is powered by a 1.4L petrol motor producing 91 BHP @ 6,000 RPM and 130 Nm @ 4,000 RPM. The diesel version is powered by a 1.3L motor pumping 89 BHP of power @ 4,000 RPM and 200 Nm @ 1,750 RPM. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission while the petrol version also gets a 4-speed automatic transmission.
