Ciaz Will Have A New Sibling Soon
It looks likely that Toyota will rebadge the Ciaz and sell it as Belta. As per the leaked images, the new sedan will have a revised grille and a different set of alloys. Toyota could make some additions to the interiors in terms of the features to make it more appealing than the Ciaz. There is no change mechanically thus, the engine and transmission remain the same as Ciaz. This will be the third product under the global agreement of Toyota and Maruti Suzuki. This partnership enables both of the companies to share some of their products and sell them after rebadging.
