After initially making its debut in Thailand, the refreshed 2022 Suzuki Ciaz has officially made its way onto Philippine soil. Suzuki Philippines has updated the model to now come with a revised front fascia and a few new features that help keep the sedan competitive but still retain the same reliable driving experience as before.
On the outside, the refreshed Suzuki Ciaz now comes with a new blacked-out front grille with chrome surrounds, it also gets restyled headlights that now meet in the middle with the new grille. Aside from this, the sedan also gets newly-designed fog lights and flight surrounds. Moving over to the rear of the vehicle, it still maintains its familiar shape as most of the redesign was done to the front of the Ciaz. Color options for the refreshed sedan have also been trimmed down as it is now only available in Mineral Gray Metallic, Pure White Pearl, and Super Black Pearl.
On the inside, the 2021 Suzuki Ciaz retains its familiar layout with only minor changes done to the vehicle. It now comes with a new instrument panel that now features new gauges and a new multi-info display. Aside from this the sedan now also sports an all-black interior that comes with new fabric seats. The infotainment system has also been upgraded for the facelifted model as it now has an 8-inch head unit that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. It still retains its AUX-in, USB, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Under the hood, the facelifted Suzuki Ciaz still retains its 1.4-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine. It still produces 92 hp and 130 Nm of torque. The sedan can be had only with a 4-speed automatic transmission as the Japanese automaker has chosen to drop the 5-speed manual from its current variant lineup. Suzuki Philippines may introduce a manual transmission model later on if there is a demand for it.
In terms of safety, the refreshed Ciaz comes with the industry standard of ABS with EBD, a reverse camera, and dual front airbags just to name a few. Pricing for the refreshed model starts at P888,000 for the new variant.
