First Introduced in 2014, the Ciaz has become a popular C segment vehicle in the Indian market. It offers absolute value for money starting at just 7.83 Lakhs. The Honda City and Hyundai’s Verna have always been its main rivals but the car has done well enough and has clawed back the car segment which had always eluded the company.

The Ciaz is expected to receive a face lift this year which should give the car a refreshed look to compete with the newly revamped Verna and Honda City

Exterior

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Front Three QuarterThe sharp headlights give the car an aggressive front with the lengthy bonnet adding to the overall street presence of the car. The three slatted grille is typical Maruti with the proud S badge in the middle.

The Ciaz is longer and wider than its competition and therefore offers the best legroom and the largest boot space

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Rear Tail LightsThere isn’t much going on with the sides of the car which remain tastefully elegant. Coming on to the rear, the car features wrap around tail lights which do look reminiscent of the Honda City. A lip spoiler and chrome badges help in giving a premium look to Ciaz’s behind.

Interior

Stepping on to the inside, the Ciaz offers a minimalist cabin and a beige interior with wooden and metal highlights. Higher variants come with a touchscreen infotainment system mounted in the centre of the dash.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Interior Front DashThe Ciaz also offers electronic automatically retractable ORVMs, keyless entry, push button start, a reversing camera and steering mounted controls.

In terms of safety, the car offers dual airbags with ABS and EBD right from the base variant

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Interior Rear SeatsThe rear seats offer a tremendous amount of leg room with ample under thigh support to provide an overall comfortable experience. Passengers at the rear also get separate AC vents and a sunshade for the windshield behind them.

Performance & Mileage

The Ciaz is powered by a 1400 cc petrol engine and a 1300 cc hybrid diesel engine. Producing a max power output of 91 BHP@6000 RPM with 130 Nm of torque the petrol unit gives a mileage of 20.73 kmpl when paired to the 5 speed  manual gearbox. A 4 speed automatic is also offered with the petrol engine with around similar fuel efficiency.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Engine ComponentsThe diesel motor is paired to a 5 speed manual gearbox and produces 89 BHP@4000 RPM with 200 Nm of torque. It is assisted by a large battery which uses brake energy recuperation to charge itself and in turn helps the crank in creating torque hence taking some load off the engine. This hybrid setup yields a higher fuel economy of 28.09 kmpl.

To Conclude

The Ciaz offers a bigger bang for your buck compared to the Verna and Honda City. It is definitely feature packed and will also keep your wallet less empty after every refueling. However it is let down by a lack of power which means it isn’t completely a driver’s car.

Ciaz Rear In MotionNonetheless the Ciaz is a very good all round package and makes up in comfort and convenience for everything lacking in the performance department.
