346

If you are planning to buy Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and can’t decide which variant to buy, this post might help you in forming a decision.

Maruti has been pioneering the hatchback segment in India but has been falling short of the competition when it comes to delivering a sedan. Maruti Suzuki Ciaz promised to change that a few years ago when it was launched with the other cars in the line-up. Later, it was moved to the premium outlet ‘Nexa’ where people could receive additional benefits and better service. Ciaz became a popular sedan simply because it was a premium offering from Maruti Suzuki and it was launched at an attractive price to capture the market. Some of it worked but the rivals were already established and too strong to be unsettled. Nevertheless, if you are planning to buy the Ciaz, here is a variant comparison for you to choose which model suits your needs the best.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is offered with a single petrol engine which is mated to a 5-speed M or a 4-speed AT for added convenience. The power from the engine is sufficient and does not feel underpowered at any moment. Driving dynamics are good with the engine being refined along with slick-shifting gears. Purchasing a manual or an automatic is a matter of personal choice, but the engine performs well in city and highway conditions with respectable fuel economy figures.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has been priced adequately and below the rivals. This is done in order to capture market share and undercut the competition. The price range is low which makes the Ciaz a value for money option. People with a budget crunch can buy the Sigma variant and people who can spend can go all the way up to Alpha which is the top variant.

Maruti Suzuki has equipped the Ciaz with plenty of safety features that are necessary at this price range and the competition it has. The base variant has almost all the necessary safety features and it’s safe to say that buying the base variant would not be the wrong decision in terms of a budget shortage. In terms of safety and value for money aspect, the variant to go for is Delta AT, as it has all the safety features with the added convenience of an automatic gearbox. If the person wants a manual alternative, the Alpha variant would do the job just fine.

In terms of interior and entertainment, Maruti Suzuki has done a great job in equipping the Ciaz with plenty of kits.

If someone does not have a budget constraint, then they can go for the top variants to enjoy the vehicle to the fullest.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is a sedan that is priced reasonably and does a great job in undercutting the competition. It gets all the bells and whistles one would expect at this price point with some minor things missing. When compared with its rivals, it has its own advantages and disadvantages.
