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.

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

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

    Hyundai Creta Highlights

    The stylish exteriors of the Hyundai Creta boast the menacing SUV looks while still retaining the sophistication of a contemporary offering. Interiors are best-in-class and spacious boot aids the cabin’s practicality.

    Price and Competitors

    The Creta can be had in the price range of Rs 9.29-14.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is up against the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV 500, Renault Duster etc. Click on the below link to get an idea of on-road price and select the city accordingly.

    Renault Captur Highlights

    The principal highlight of Renault Captur is its stylish demeanour which is unlike anything that we have witnessed on Indian roads. Slip inside the cabin and you will be delighted with quality and layout of the interiors. Dual-tone seats have their own charm and the same is true for the sporty Steering Wheel with mounted controls.

    The Renault Captur is up against the likes of Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass among others. Renault Captur is premium SUV from the French Automaker Renault which is offered in the price range of Rs 9.99-13.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Who Wins?
    The Hyundai Creta presents itself as a great option for those looking for an urban SUV/crossover. The smart exterior design, premium interiors, punchy engines and convenient automatic transmission give it an appeal very few of its competitors can match.
    The Hyundai Creta might be a vanilla package, but that doesn’t stop it from being a potent one. It’s got the mix of looks, features and drivability which ensures thousands throng the showrooms.

    The Captur brings some style to a segment of boxy SUVs. If you want to stand out in the crowd or while munching highway miles - the big Renault is worth a dekko!
    Of course, there are hiccups -  it could’ve been tuned for better everyday drivability, and some more space at the back would’ve been good too. But, neither takes away from the fact that underneath the flash, it’s a sensible crossover.

    If you’ve been eyeing a mid-size SUV, and feel like the Creta is a bit too vanilla - the Captur is worth looking at.

    Coming to next query, it is always recommended to get the CNG kit fitted from the authorized service center so that you can avail the warranty services as well. If you get it installed from some other sources, then it may hamper your warranty. On the other hand, please make sure that the CNG kit that you are installing is RTO approved to avoid future troublesome.

    We suggest you to get in touch with the authorized service center to know the nitty-gritty of the fittings as they will be the best people to suggest you the compatible CNG kit for your car.

    Thank you for taking out time to share your thoughts with us.

    Toyota is one the the acclaimed brand in the Indian market which has a strong after-sales service and network.

    Yes, the Toyota Fortuner offers bi-beam LED projector headlamps whereas the high end versions of Toyota Corolla Altis have LED headlamps along with daytime running lights.  

    Headlamps of a car is one of the most important aspects which lighten ahead the way and compromising with it is weighted with the safety of the passengers and the pedestrian on pathway.

    Though, we have not came across such a feedback till now that both the siblings of Toyota doesn't illuminate the way in a widen manner but in case you feel so then we would strongly recommend you to change the eyes of the car with the care of warranty under the shed of authorized service center.

  • i want purchase new SUV but confused with JEEP Compass and Hyundai Tucson, which better our budget is 20-30 lac

    Published On :2017-12-30 11:54:26.0 kamlesh

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

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

    Buying a car often involves a lot of research. You read reviews, ask friends for advice, and get doubts answered by the dealership among others things before making a decision. While all of these steps are essential, it is not a surefire way to get the best, which you rightly deserve. We at CarDekho want to make this decision-making process easy and fast for you by giving you all the essential information.

    It is indeed a good budget for the car. Now, let's see how both the cars stack up against each other.

    Jeep Compass Highlights

    Look at the vertically slatted nose upfront and you’ll be instantly sold on. Inside the cabin, the top-variant of the Jeep is fully loaded though the starting trim loses on some of the important features.

    The Jeep Compass is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol and a 2.0-liter diesel engine churning 160PS/250Nm and 170PS/350Nm respectively. Both these motors come mated to 6-speed manual transmission with petrol variant getting the additional option of automatic. The Jeep Compass has already become quite popular among the buyers and giving a tough competition to range of other vehicles in its category.

    Hyundai Tucson Highlights

    Hyundai has finally introduced the four-wheel-drive version of its flagship SUV, the Tucson, in India.
    The Tucson features a total of five variants and offers two engine and two transmission options. It is powered by a 185PS 2.0-litre diesel and a 155PS 2.0-litre petrol.

    Click here - Jeep Compass vs Hyundai Tucson: Variant Wise Feature Comparison

    CD Says:

    The Jeep Compass shines both on and off the road. It is stylish, spacious and well-equipped. While it may lose out on many features (which are made glaringly obvious in some respects), it makes up for the same with its very aggressive pricing.

    The actual competitor of the Compass in many international markets, but in India Jeep has priced the Compass so competitively that the Tucson feels overpriced at first glance. The Tucson relies heavily on its mean exterior design, leather-covered interior, powerful diesel engine and on-road manners to attract customers. It is also backed by the company's larger service network.

    Buyers in this segment expect the car to have not only functional features but also luxury touches sprinkled all over the place. Just like a luxury car in this price range, the Jeep Compass lacks several features that are available in the Tucson. Though, Compass has all the safety bits but runs short on creature comfort.

    On paper, the Compass lags a couple notches behind the rivals but an aggressive price tag can certainly give it an upper hand. The Jeep brand is also worth a lot for some buyers.

    Picking one, out of these two would be difficult as both have their own forte. So, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making a final call.
