Maruti Ciaz vs Honda City

Styling:

Honda City retains a lot of styling from the previous generation and it is similar in length too. The Ciaz on the other hand is a lot more premium looking. The Ciaz because of its lower height and a bit longer. This makes it look a lot longer than the City. 

Honda City has trendy yet premium looking interiors. The black interiors with the piano black centre console looks stylish. There is a three spoke steering wheel with controls for audio and there are even cruise control buttons too. On the other hand, the interior styling of the Ciaz is a lot more subtle and feels more sophisticated. The black and beige interiors of this sedan makes it feel airy. The Ciaz SHVS has a simple dash with familiar Maruti steering wheel.

Engine Specifications:

Petrol : It's in the engines department where the City begins to pull away from the Ciaz, literally and figuratively. Honda's 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine is in a class of its own. It develops 119PS, a massive 27PS more than that of the 1.4-litre K-series petrol Ciaz's engine. The City petrol is also the freer revving unit till you reach a high 5000rpm when it begins to get coarse. The Ciaz on the other hand feels gruff above 2000rpm and short on legs in comparison. Even in gears, especially the higher ones, the City has considerably more punch, making overtaking and short bursts in power more enjoyable. In town lower down the rev band, both are easy to drive and it's where the Ciaz doesn't keep you wanting for more, but get on the open road at triple digit speeds and the Honda City is definitely the better pick. The City also has a slicker shifting gearbox too. There's nothing wrong with the Ciaz's with their short throws and smooth shifts but the City slots crisper shifts. 

Diesel: Honda has plonked in a more powerful engine than Maruti Suzuki. It is a lot more punchy and then you can drive it with ease. There is a lot of power at most of the engine speeds, which means you do not have to shift gears very often, be it in city or even the highway. This is one of the most strongest points of the Honda City.

This means better performance and fuel-efficiency too.

Talking of the numbers, City has a 1.5-litre i-DTEC (diesel) engine that chunks 98bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. This engine comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The gear lever is small and easy to shift.

The Ciaz SHVS on the other hand has a 1.3-litre diesel engine with SHVS technology. Now, this is the hybrid start stop system that even has brake regeneration. This is the same 1.3-litre engine that was there on the Ciaz. This hybrid system helps to improve the fuel-efficiency. The drivability of the Ciaz SHVS is good and is easy to drive in the city or even on the highway. This diesel engine comes with a five-speed manual transmission. 

Ride, handling and ease of driving: 

While the Ciaz has better ride, the City is a better handler. The Ciaz offers better grip though in tighter corners with its larger 195 section tyres where the City’s 175s begin to squeal sooner. The Ciaz is a better commuter and the City is more of an enthusiast’s pick overall.

Verdict:

It’s extremely hard to ignore the Maruti Ciaz, especially at this price. It comes with kitted all the bells and whistles and Maruti has done a fine job with its design, inside and out. The Ciaz is also very efficient and offers fantastic ride quality. It doesn't however impress with its engine. When you are paying close to a million rupees, you don't want your petrol car to do just one thing well, which is being a good city commuter. Here, the Honda City makes its case. It is acceptably efficient if you don't ask much from the engine and quick when you want to close that gap or munch those miles. It also handles better and pampers its occupants more. Maruti has a good package in the Ciaz but the Honda City is still overall the better deal.

  • WISH TO BUY A NEW CAR BETWEEN Rs.8-0 --9 lacs whose handling

    Published On :2018-03-30 20:02:46.0 By Arun

    Thank you for considering us worthy enough to address your concern & writing to us.

    It's good to hear that you wish to buy a car & thank you for making us a part of it.

    There are ample of options available in different price range like Tata Tigor, Maruti Swift, Ford Aspire, Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Elite i20 etc.

    You may also apply filters to refine your search and can shortlist some of the options from the lot. Do let us know the hand-picked options so that we can help you to choose one.

    As new car purchase would depend on a lot of factors like budget, segment or brand preference, transmission, fuel type, specific feature requirement etc.
    Hence, we request you to share your inputs so that we can assist you in right direction.

    If you are traveling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day.

    Whereas, every one of us knows that traffic is becoming an ever increasing pain. It does not matter how quick your manual gearbox responds or how reliable it is when you get stuck in a huge traffic jam and suffer excruciating pain in your left leg constantly depressing the clutch.

    If you'll be driving more in heavy city traffic then we suggest you to opt for Automated Manual Transmission(AMT) which are easier to use and more comfortable for the driver, while Manual Transmission vehicles are less expensive more involved & are more fun to drive on highways.

    Moreover, we have a article for you which will help you in decision making.

    Thank you for showing confidence in our services & writing to us.

    Both the cars that you've selected are awesome and stack up against each other in certain ways.

    If you're looking for a chauffeur driven car and spending most of time on paved roads then BMW 3 series is the ideal choice. On the other hand, if you'll be tackling bad roads oftenly then we would suggest you to pick for BMW X1 as it excels in terms of ground clearance and have better off-road capabilities.

  • IS THERE ANY POWER LAG PROBLEM IN MARTUTI S CROSS

    Maruti S-Cross Highlights

    Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is amalgamation of two different body styles and it claims to provide the best of both worlds, i.e., luxurious sedan and rugged SUV. Exteriors of the S-Cross feature projector headlamps and the vertically slatted grille lends menacing character to the car. Maruti's SmartPlay infotainment system is the highlight of the S-Cross’s quality cabin and you will be pleasantly surprised with the plenty of cabin room. Boot is equally capacious and the best part is the sensible way it has been laid out to maximize the capacity.

    Under the hood, Maruti has employed Fiat-owned 1.3-liter multi-jet diesel engine (DDiS in Maruti Speak) putting out 90PS/200Nm. This gasoline engine now features the Suzuki’s smart hybrid system and comes mated to 5-speed manual gearbox.

    Performance

    While the 1.3-litre diesel engine in the S-Cross facelift delivers exactly the same power-torque figures as before, it is now paired with SHVS tech. Maruti Suzuki says that the addition of SHVS to the setup will aid fuel efficiency, but what’s immediately noticeable is the improved driveability at slow speeds. Where you would normally suffer from turbo-lag the torque assist feature of the smart hybrid system uses the electric motor to add some punch.

    The 1.3-litre engine can take the S-Cross into three digit speeds and cruise easily. However, it starts to feel strained when asked to make quick overtaking manoeuvers, even when it’s around the max torque range of 1750rpm. That’s when dropping a gear, or even two, is the only way out to pick pace. Once you go past 2500rpm, the S-Cross starts to pull neatly. Thankfully, gearshifts are smooth and sure slotting, and the clutch is light too.
