Looks like things are going in the right direction for Maruti Suzuki. Three days back, the brand opened bookings for its much awaited sedan Ciaz, and it has reportedly received 3,000 bookings in the country untill now.
Ciaz is tipped to break its cover in the first week of October and considering the overwhelming response received, we expect the demand to grow in the coming days. Maruti started its pre-launch bookings on 3 September and now a report of Economic Times says that the bookings have already crossed 3,000.
Maruti Ciaz, the company's trump card in the mid-sedan segment is coming to the market with huge expectations and the initial response looks rather bright for Maruti at this moment. In the sedan segment, Ciaz is Maruti's third vehicle to try its luck after SX4 and Baleno. While it is too early to talk about the success of Ciaz in the domestic market, from what we have been hearing ,Ciaz is a fabulous car from India's most trusted brand that comes with a stylish design and powerful performance packages. But what counts is how well Maruti s going to price its new offering.
