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.

  • WHICH IS THE BEST CAR IGNIS OR SWIFT

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

    It's good to know that you wish to know about car & we'll be glad to assist you.

    Maruti Ignis has good amount of headroom and legroom and stand out from the crowd. The Ignis is available in four variants - Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. Engine options include the 84PS 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and the 75PS 1.3-litre DDiS190 engine. Both engines can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT.

    Maruti Swift has refined petrol and punchy diesel engine makes it quite fun to drive. It is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre diesel engine. Both the diesel and petrol engines are coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission.

    Verdict:

    Both the siblings are backed by Maruti Suzuki’s after-sales network and support. The Ignis’s design makes it stand out, but it may not appeal to everyone. The cabin is spacious and practical for four adults whereas the Swift name has gained its popularity for all the right reasons. It’s a stylish, easy and fun to drive hatchback and feels quite well made too.

    The only drawback is it’s average cabin space and boot volume, which mean it isn’t the most practical car in the segment. It is best suited to individual buyers or small families with young children.

    We would suggest you to take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort.

Both have been developed by Tata in-house, and while the petrol engine is exactly a turbocharged version of the Tigor’s engine, the diesel engine is completely new.

    This has to be Tata’s best diesel engine till date, and it can very well be considered one of the better diesel engines in the compact car space.

  • Hi, I want you to help me choose in buying between Hyundai Elite i20 (ASTA 1.2), FORD Figo ASPIRE (TITANIUM PLUS), FORD Figo Sports edition, TATA Nexon (XM). Here special consideration to be taken is I will be driving most of the time of rough roads so the suspension should be good.

    Published On :2017-09-24 08:29:32.0 By Arun

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

    All the options you've selected are indeed awesome & stand apart in their own way.

    Hyundai Elite i20 is a all-rounder product which has a fantastic exterior styling. It now comes with an updated list of features and choice of dual-tone body colours as well.

    Ford Aspire is very well designed sub-4 metre sedan which offers good driveability and long list of features. The Sports Edition Aspire comes with a retuned suspension setup for better handling and stability.

    The Ford Figo makes for a nice city commuter. Not so long ago, Ford introduced the Sportier ‘S’ version of the hatchback, the Ford Figo S, in April 2017. The Ford Figo Sports features a retuned suspension setup and bigger tyres for relatively better handling and stability, while mechanically, it remains the same. Also on offer are go-fast aesthetic additions such as a new mesh grill, dual-tone paint schemes, decals and red interior upholstery stitching and leather wrapped steering wheel.

    The feature list of Tata Nexon is on par with its immediate rivals, and there are clever touches (like the umbrella holder and the activity key) that make it stand out. Add to the mix the torquey diesel engine, and the generous cabin/boot space it also has eye-catching design.

    Click here - Compare Ford Figo and Ford Aspire and Hyundai Elite i20 and Tata Nexon

    Verdict:

    Compared to the earlier version, the Elite i20 is a step up in terms of ride quality and comfort. Taking on potholes and broken roads is easy as long as you stick to low speeds. The suspension is compliant and isn’t bouncy any more.

    For the ford product (Figo / Aspire) the suspension is set on the softer side. It is tuned for comfort which lets the Ford soak in the bumps easily. That said, the rear passengers get thrown about quite a bit over broken roads and the electronic power steering is almost too light by Ford standards.

    The Nexon gets McPherson struts up front and a twist beam setup at the rear. The ride is a nice compromise between hard and soft and because there’s not much body roll, it feels plush on the inside. It deals with potholes in the manner of bigger SUVs. So all you feel inside is a toned down thud and a little vertical movement that settles down pretty quick.

    To sum up, we would suggest you to pick for Ford Figo or Tata Nexon.

    We also recommend you to take a test drive before making a final call.

  • Which is better car Ford ecosport vs Vitara Brezza vs Honda WRV vs Tata Nexon ?

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

    All the options you've selected are awesome & it's difficult to choose one out of all.

    Ford Ecosport has a contemporary styling which turns a lot of heads. It comes among the best looking SUVs in its class and well-rounded product from Ford.

    Maruti Vitara Brezza looks muscular and it is completely a attractive package. Belonging to Maruti Family, comes with strong after-sales network. It comes with just one engine option – the 1.3-litre DDiS200, which produces 86.2PS of power and 200Nm of torque and is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission.

    Honda WR-V has a distinctive styling and both engines are fuel-efficient and offer good city driveability. It comes with Dual Airbags and ABS with EBD as standard safety feature.

    Tata Nexon is equipped with refined diesel engine which is lively at low revs; the petrol motor could’ve been a notch more responsive. It gets drive modes that change the character of the engine. The dynamics of Nexon offers a comfortable ride without any compromise on handling.

    Verdict:

    If you need a sporty, practical and feature loaded offering that gives you the predictability and ease of use of a hatchback, along with the look and ground clearance of an SUV, the EcoSport is a great option.

    Brezza is high on features and has practical touches too, such as the smart seating arrangement. The proven and reliable engine, along with a strong after-sales network, make the Brezza an extremely attractive package.

    Honda WRV has distinctive styling, it gets some nice features, many of which, are shared with the Honda City. However, it’s a hard sell when compared to more convincing crossovers like the Ford EcoSport or the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

    The Nexon’s loud styling might not appeal to all, but will definitely click with those looking for something hatke. Yes, quality control on the Nexon could’ve been slightly better and the petrol motor could’ve been a notch more responsive. That said, neither of these are reasons to rule the Nexon out completely.
