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 suv vehicle is good with roof glass

    Published On :2018-06-01 19:07:23.0 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 know about car & we'll be gald to assist you.

    If we understand you correctly, you're looking for SUV car with Sunroof. The available options are Ford Ecosport, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV500, Honda CR-V, Volkswagen Tiguan, Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, Audi Q3, BMW X1 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, to have the information on your finger-tips, you may also download our mobile application which is available on iOS and Android.

    You may also reach our auto-experts by calling on our toll free number i.e. 1800-200-3000 from Mon-Sat (9:30 AM - 6 PM) or write to us at support@cardekho.com. Our team will be more than happy to help you.

  • new honda amaze diesel cvt vs volkswagon ameo DSG diesel .....which is the better option irrespective of price

    Published On :2018-05-09 15:46:06.0 By Arun

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

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

    Things We Like in Amaze

    - Honda’s reliability. 
    - Powerful engines for the segment. 
    - One of the most fuel efficient diesel cars in the country (25.8kmpl).
    - Inoffensive, but attractive styling. 
    - Spacious cabin and generous boot space.

    The Honda Amaze is a well-packaged and compact car with a decent list of features. It also gets potent, but efficient engines and is backed by Honda’s good ownership experience.

    It’s not the best looking/most equipped/best handler in the segment, but what it is, is a fantastic all-rounder.

    Things We Like in Ameo

    - Most feature loaded vehicle in the segment with features such as cruise control, MirrorLink support and others.
    - 110PS diesel engine is a powerhouse! Can be fun and frugal at the same time.
    -Solid build quality inside-out, similar to that of its siblings. The Polo and the Vento.

    The Ameo is not a boot-pasted Polo. With the kind of built quality on offer along with potent engines under its hood, this sub-compact sedan from Volkswagen does stand out. Yes, it does reflect Polo’s identity but that again is not a bad thing at all. 
    Considering its competitive price-point with regards to the several class-leading features on offer, it makes its own identity in this mass-runner segment. Ameo offers a solution to buyers who are looking to upgrade to a car that offers a premium look and feel at a price point that doesn’t put a big hole into their pockets.

    To sum up - The Ameo DSG has the more engaging drive experience.
