Suzuki Philippines is looking to shake up the subcompact sedan segment by introducing the refreshed 2021 Ciaz that features a new front end, and a revamped interior.

The Japanese car brand said that its subcompact sedan offers an enhanced driver and passenger experience along with the same reliable driving performance.
2021 Suzuki Ciaz
The exterior of the 2021 PH-spec Ciaz looks similar to the one that debuted in India last 2018. As a facelift model, the new Ciaz gets a restyled front end that’s highlighted by a new grille, and bumper design. The grille now gets a subtler chrome accent along with a blacked-out design, which has a sleeker finish compared to the old model. The Ciaz’s new bumper now has a more muscular, and sporty appeal. Another highlight of the 2021 Suzuki Ciaz is its LED headlights, which is a welcome upgrade from the halogens fitted on the outgoing model.
The 2021 Suzuki Ciaz still has the same rear design
The side profile, and the rear of the Ciaz retain the design of its predecessor. It still comes with the familiar character lines seen on the old model as well as the same taillight design. Even the rear bumper has a carryover design, which is expected since the 2021 Suzuki Ciaz is a facelifted model.
It now comes with an upgraded infotainment system
The 2021 Suzuki Ciaz still has a dark interior theme along with silver trims on the dashboard, and door panels. New to the Ciaz is its steering wheel design, which is now integrated with several buttons. It also gets a refined instrument cluster, fabric seats, and an upgraded infotainment system that’s placed at the center of the dashboard. The Ciaz can accommodate up to five occupants including the driver. Suzuki added that the fabric seats are ergonomically designed, which makes drives and journeys comfortable.
Tech & Safety
The upgraded infotainment system is one of the most significant updates on the 2021 Suzuki Ciaz. The said subcompact sedan is now equipped with an 8-inch infotainment system that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, which allows a seamless smartphone integration.
The new Ciaz now also comes with improved safety features that include the availability of a reverse camera, dual airbags, and an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with an electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD).
The 2021 Ciaz is still powered by the same 1.4-liter gasoline engine that produces 91 hp and 130 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to a four-speed automatic transmission.
