The Ciaz: Is it Really hybrid and has Maruti made a good effort t...
Look and Style: At first look, you think it by a high-end car manufacturer, but on closer look you'll find that it's Hamara Maruti. The car impresses you from outside, nice clean sleek looks, the pillars are shaped good, the looks of the car don't make it look bulky or elongated.
Looks wise I give it a 7/10.
Comfort: The seats are made well, as far the seats go, it's comfortable. But once you hit the road, the car doesn't stay stable on bumps and potholes, especially in Bangalore when I tried it over a long stretch of potholes, you feel like you are sitting in a Go-Cart. I'd say bad hydraulics.
Pickup: It's a turbo diesel car, the turbo works up to 3500 rpm after which you really need to put your foot down on the accelerator to get some speed. From 4th gear to 5th gear, the speed increases very slowly, it takes its time, as I said before you need to have your foot down on the accelerator, which feels a little bad for a 1.3L diesel engine of its class.
But good enough for the city, where the hybrid kicks in and you don't need to start the engine every time u hit a Red light! You just press the clutch and the engine is good to go.
Mileage: Decent 16 kmpl in the city, 18-20 kmpl on the highway.
Best Features: Not happy with the features, they could have done better, I'd say no eye for detail. The music system is bad, with the touch screen not all that responsive. Could have added better feature, but otherwise you get all the basic necessary features like rear cam, Bluetooth, charger, cup holder etc.
Needs to improve: Hydraulics, Breaks, Engine sound, would be better if it were a little smoother.
Overall Experience: Overall, Maruti wanted to roll out with a luxury sedan, I'd say they have landed in their
