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.

    Hey Mate,

    Thank you for showing trust in our services and writing to us.

    CarDekho is the one-stop solution for your all needs related to cars.

    Hyundai has launched the mid-life facelift of the popular Grand i10 hatchback in the country. It has spacious passenger and luggage space and is best suited for city. It has made significant changes; exterior design, equipment and even the engines have been tinkered with for that 'new-car' feeling.

    Click here - Hyundai Grand i10

    Talking about performance, the Grand i10 is offered with both petrol and diesel powertrains, the diesel motor was not the most powerful in the segment - the only downside in an otherwise brilliant package. It does have peppy diesel engine & extra torque helps it potter around town easily.

    Click here - Hyundai Grand i10 Expert Review

    As far as mileage is concerned, Grand i10 (diesel) has a mileage ranging between 21.0kmpl(city) and 24.0kmpl(highway). These are claimed mileage & will vary as per one's driving style.

    On the other hand, it is lighter on pocket i.e. easier to maintain.

    If you will be driving around 50-70kms.(Approx.) a day, we will suggest you to go with diesel variant. Otherwise, if your driving will be less, than you can opt for petrol variant.

  • im planning to buy hyundai verna diesel1.6 automatic 4 speed but it got mixed reviews about performance of 1.6 diesel manual please share your view about 4 speed auto and 6 speed manual

    Published On :2017-07-15 15:33:00.0 By Arun

    Thank you for showing trust in our services and writing to us.

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

    Hyundai Verna is one of the best-looking sedan in the segment & offered with one of the most power diesel engine in the segment.

    Coming to the performance, figures are same for both the variants which reflect similar power & pickup.

    Verdict:

    If you'll be driving more in heavy traffic conditions then we suggest you to pick for a Automatic Transmission variant to enjoy a hassle free ride. Otherwise, if you'll be driving more on highways/hilly areas then Manual Transmission Gear-box will be a better choice as you'll be having more command on the car.

    On the other hand, Service cost will be a bit on higher side in Automatic Transmission cars.
