Default Re: Maruti Ciaz : Official Review

I took the TD yesterday and found the car to be very well sorted in almost all departments of refinement, features, suspension and power delivery. Just one doubt, in the ZDi I tested here had considerable tyre noise creeping into the cabin, even while cruising at 60 Kmph. I know it was not as bad as Honda City but was disturbing enough in an otherwise silent cabin. Now since the TD vehicle was quite driven already, wanted to confirm whether it was just a problem in the demo vehicle or is it "normal" in Ciaz

In the ZXi version when you switch the car off via the start stop button the doors do not automatically unlock. Also the exterior mirrors do not fold when the car is locked or lock button is pressed On the lock button of the remote.
Is there anyway of fixing these issues?

There is a setting that can be adjusted via the driver information display to enable the doors to unlock automatically when the engine is switched off. The default setting is such that the doors will lock when the speed reaches 15kmph but the unlock feature is disabled. I have enabled it on my ZDi and it works. There are many other settings too that can be customized via the display like security system, footwell lighting, siren etc. Regarding the mirrors, no, they do not auto fold when the car is locked. Moreover to fold the mirrors using the button on the power window console, at least the ACC mode should be on.

Guys, I'm getting a mileage of 29 kmpl for my ciaz zdi !! The onboard computer showed 28.2 which I assumed to be an exagerrated readout. so I checked by the full tank to full tank method...and there you go,BINGO! 3 cheers to the technical team behind this.The car was driven at a sedate pace of 60 to 90 kmph with the tacho not exceeding 3200 rpm for a distance of 100kms.

That's great mileage for Ciaz which is a plus point in its cap. Hope we get to see more Ciaz on the road.

So whatever tuning that the engineers @ Maruti Suzuki did with that 90PS engine has worked good.

Between the MID and real-time data there would be a difference of 0.5-1 kmpl.
So keep checking full tank basis FE regularly to keep a track on the MID vs Real time difference before you come to any conclusion.

Overall how does the engine feel?

3200RPM corresponds to 125 - 130 kmph which I feel is high as your car would be in the run-in period.

Do keep varying the speeds during run-in period and for highway cruising, 80-100 kmph is the best for the driver safety point of view as well as FE.

3200 rpm and at a speed of 60 to 90 kmph. Did you drive in 3rd or 4th gear all along the highway. Sorry I didn't get it. Can you explain?

3200 RPM @ 3rd or 4th gear won't yield 29kmpl sir!

He could be meaning that the maximum RPM he drove the car was 3200 but mostly it was cruising between 60-90 kmph.

+ 1 to Anurag.
What Passion drive meant was that the driving speed hovered between the "Eco" band of 60-90 kmph with intermittent speeds of 130-135 kmph(corresponding to 3200 rpm).

Nevertheless, 29 kmpl is super average!!

I inquired about the Ciaz with my local dealer and he confirmed that there is no Auto Box available in the Ciaz. Is he correct? I do see some people who have mentioned they have booked the AT and I was hoping that is acronym for Automatic. Please confirm!

Dear Rki2007, we can reach or exceed 3200 rpm in 1st 2nd and 3rd gear depending upon varying traffic conditions,especially when you need to shoot through the gaps ie when I'm driving sedately!! Ciaz zdi does 100 kmph at 2200 rpm in 5th. I hope you get the picture now

Thank you sir for interpreting my post perfectly.
Regarding the running in, I'm trying something different this time.I never exceeded 2200 rpm for the first 1000 kms in whichever gear.Then I got an oil change done by MAS.
I didn't exceed 2200 again till 2000 kms. Afterwards I have started to take it till 3600rpm on occasional bursts and planning the same till I have covered 5000kms where I will perform the next oil change.Then touch 4000rpm on occasional bursts till 10000 . I have done 3000 kms as of now.
I used a Manza quadrajet for 4 years before I bought this car. So I'm quite familiar with this engine and have explored all its capabilities.
In the Manza, one can experience the push, the moment you touch 2000 rpm wherein the Ciaz the power delivery is more linear and there is no push.
I used to get 15 kmpl in city and 18 to 20kmpl for long drives in Manza.
In Ciaz the DDIS feels refined till 3200 rpm and a little rough beyond. Clutch is light and sensitive.Power delivery is good.One can have good fun with the car if you know when to shift the gears IMHO.

Ask the dealer to close the business and sit at home. What a shame! Everything is available on Maruti Suzuki's website.
