• The Ciaz is Maruti Suzuki’s smart and sensible mid-sized sedan. A popular model, the Ciaz was updated in 2018 with revised styling, more features and a more powerful mild-hybrid petrol engine. Following the discontinuation of diesel engine versions, the Ciaz range now only comprises petrol-manual and petrol-automatic options. The Ciaz is exclusively sold from Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa retail network.
  • While 2018’s styling enhancements have added some flash to the Ciaz’s smart design, the addition of features like cruise control have also helped make the car a more wholesome package. However, the incredible cabin space remains the highlight on the Ciaz.
  • The Ciaz’s 105hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine is smooth and responsive, if also unexciting. Shifts on the standard-fit 5-speed manual gearbox are nice while the 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission comes across as somewhat lazy. Suzuki’s Smart Hybrid system gives the Ciaz petrol class-leading fuel economy figures.
  • Light controls and a pleasant ride quality also make the Ciaz easy to live with.
  • The Ciaz automatic is a smart choice if you want the convenience of an automatic transmission above all else. However, our pick from the two engine-gearbox options on offer would be the petrol-manual. The fully-loaded Alpha trim gives a whole host of features for a reasonable price
