The Ciaz SHVS version delivers 28.09 kmpl of mileage, which is noticeably higher than competition.
Powering the Ciaz SHVS is the same 1.3L, 4-cylinder diesel motor producing 90 PS of power & 200 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
SHVS features:
  • Idle start stop
  • Torque assist
  • Brake energy regeneration
  • Gear shift indicator
On the inside, the Ciaz SHVS gets a blue illumination over the instrument cluster dials. There’s also a button provided to switch off the engine start / stop button.
This pricing has been possible thanks to the incentives provided by the governments FAME initiative.
How SHVS Works:
SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle from Suzuki) technology uses an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) and an advance high capacity battery. This system supplements, making it more efficient than the conventional set up. The energy saved while decelerating/braking, which is otherwise lost, is stored in the advance high capacity battery and assists during acceleration (for eg, gradient climbing). This combination results into a peppy, powerful & fuel efficient vehicle.
Dynamic Performance:
In CIAZ SHVS, the acclaimed DDiS 200 Variable Geometry Turbocharger super combo is paired with the ISG for enhancing its performance & Fuel efficiency.
Smart Hybrid features:
Idle Start Stop:
The idle engine start/stop function on CIAZ SHVS turns off the engine automatically when the car is idling. It restarts the car as soon as the clutch is pressed. To re-start the engine, the system uses the stored energy. Restart is by belt driven ISG thereby assuring quick and silent restart
Power Assist:
The stored energy in advanced high capacity battery assists engine power during acceleration. This results into improved engine efficiency and prevents unnecessary loss of fuel.
Brake Energy Regeneration:
Recuperation of the kinetic energy makes the Ciaz a true Smart Hybrid Vehicle. The ISG converts the energy from braking/deceleration of the car and stores it in the battery. This stored energy is later used to drive the ISG, to assist the engine’s idle start-stop function and assists the engine during acceleration.
Gear shift indicator:
The gear shift indicator introduced in the Ciaz SHVS prompts the driver to effectively change the gears, resulting in enhanced fuel efficiency.
Maruti Suzuki is planning more hybrid models in the immediate future.
