After a long wait , with a lot of excitement, Maruti launched a new Sedan - the Ciaz, we were lucky to get delivery before Diwali. It looks a hybrid of SX4 and new City and it doesn't impress you on exteriors however you will not be disappointed by its first looks. After a more thorough examination, you will find it has some good exterior features like telescopic headlamps, indicators on ORVMs (internally adjustable) in lower versions also like that of mine, etc.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) What impresses is great-tit space both in front and back. I drove down to Jaipur from Delhi and back with my family and It was a great comfortable drive for us. Including me, we were total five members (we all are tall in my family) in the car and no body complained about the discomfort. Great legroom and not to forget its extra spacious boot. My car (Vxi+) is definitely loaded with many features which are usually not found in many cars at entry level versions. Finishing inside is also good, Maruti should have more focused on finishing on the interiors of doors which gives the cheap plastic feel. 2 din music system with 6 speakers is really a beauty.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox : Except for its hard transmission, driving Ciaz is a pleasure. Till now in 11 days I have driven it around 850Kms and the average of around 17Kmpl has come as a pleasant surprise to me. If it is 17Kmpl in the mixed condition w/o even the first service then who needs a diesel car. Though petrol engine is just ok, however sometimes it lacks in power and demands for a slightly more powerful engine.
Ride Quality & Handling: Ride quality is good. Can't comment much on handling except being lengthy, the car needs to be driven with extra care on roads to avoid any brush-ups.
Final Words: Maruti has come out with a good sedan which is feature rich at a very very competitive price. Looking at its price, its minor shortcomings can be easily ignored. Areas of improvement Gear Box, Exterior Looks, Inside of the doors.
