i am little bit confuse between ciaz and honda city ?? please share some info which would i will buy??
Maruti Ciaz vs Honda City
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.
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.
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.

I hv shorlisted Honda Amaze S-CVT-iVTECH Petrol and Maruti Swift Dzire VXI AT Petrol.I am aged 62 yrs and need to keep the car for next 15 yrs.Monthly drive will be about 1000 km in Delhi city.Pl advise from engine performance,comfortable drive,noiseless engine point which is better ?
Hello Rakesh, the cars that you have selected are great. Both of them are great to drive and offer almost equal amount of power and torque. However, since you are going for a petrol variant, we would suggest you to go for Amaze S CVT iVTEC as it has CVT on offer which is better than the AT offered in Dzire. Though Dzire would be easy to maintain. The engine performance, NVH levels and everything is better with Amaze. Click here to check out the comparison.
I wanted to buy the maruti suzuki vitara brezza car but i confused only in the performance and engine response of this car, some reviews showing the engine has little bit of noise while driving it and the pick up of this car is not good as expected. So please suggest me the engine and driving performance of this car in city and highway.
Hey, it is great that you wish to buy a new car and the car that you have selected in indeed very nice. However, the power that is generates is less, it is lesser than Ford Ecosport which offers better competition. Though the amount of features that you get with Brezza is great but you are concerned about driving pleasure, you should choose Ecosport since it has got better power and looks great too. If you drive mostly in cities, you should choose Brezza. Click here to check out the comparison.
