Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Expert Review - Check Advantage and Disadvantage
The wait is over, as the new Ciaz is about to be launched by Maruti Suzuki this year and the expectation is being high as the performance of the previous Ciaz has been phenomenal in the midsized car segment. With the base VXI model boasting a price tag of INR 8.46 lakhs (Ex-showroom prices Delhi), which is about INR 70,000 less than the head-on competitor Honda City’s base model. Ciaz seems to the “Yorker” pitched perfectly to shoot the bails off of all the uncertain regulatory issues in the Indian capital, as the hybrid versions bid adieu to all the pollution and diesel fuel related issues, even getting subsidies from the government for being eco-friendly. Not to mention that this car was also exempted from the odd-even rule.
The Ciaz petrol models go from INR 8.46 lakhs to about INR 11.88 lakhs, whereas diesel variants ranging from INR 8.82 lakhs to INR 9.50 lakhs for the VDI+ SHVS version (all ex-showroom, Delhi).
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Exterior
Modestly designed Ciaz doesn’t seem to capture the attention at the first sight but it’s beautifully crafted headlamps says a lot about the sporty yet luxurious style statement of the car. Two body lines going through the sideways just below the door handles adds to the streamlined looks, while the two hulky details on the bonnet add to the prowess and sportiness. Flaunting the indicator facilitated ORVM, Ciaz is ready to make its mark in the segment in terms of looks. The Ciaz is 4,490mm long, 1,730mm width, 1,485mm height, 2,650mm wheelbase and 170mm of ground clearance.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Interior
The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz interior is totally in accordance with the luxurious expectation, embarking a spacious and relaxing aura. Personal reading lights and rear Sunshades are quite impressive add-ons to this segment. Ciaz comes with all elegant light colored interiors and simple dashboard with touchscreen easy-to-use infotainment system. With excellent fittings and attention to details, the interiors seem to be a forte’ for this car. Chrome detailing around some of the buttons and wood finish accents adds to the superiority. The rear seats miss the flip forward function to increase the already large 510-liter boot space, which can easily fit four big bags. The Maruti Suzuki seems to be using the door space very peculiarly by allowing each one to hold a 1-liter bottle and also facilitating other many smallholders here and there.
