A good move by Maruti..This move of offering ABS and Dual Airbags in more variants should be followed by other manufacturers.

There has absolutely been no reviews on Ciaz Hybrid on any of the sites or on YouTube channels. Has anyone test driven it yet ?

I went a couple if times to the dealer close to my office, but the wait time according to them was uncertain as the vehicle was on test driving rounds.

For folks who are driving diesel Ciaz, how is the ground clearance when you have 4 adults + kid + luggage in boot filled up.

I have seen my SX4 rear sag down to a large extent..forcing me to use carrier on top to evenly distributed the load on all four wheels.

Can someone share side profile photo with people tucked in ?!

with 10k kms of driving per year, and expecting to keep the car for 8 to 10 years, should I go in for ZDI or ZXI?!!

If the running will not increase exponentially in that period then I guess you are better off with ZXi.

If the monthly driving is less than 1500 kms, it doesn't make sense for spending the extra bucks on the Diesel engine. And with the gap between both the fuels reducing and expected to reduce even further down the years, it would be better to go in for the ZXI

Damn.....heart says diesel this time ( would be my first ), mind says petrol because of low running cost.

And of course, I don't know what future holds...maybe I change job to a place which needs 80 kms of daily travel

If you are the type of person who is always itching to hit the road, then don't look beyond the ZDi. Initial outflow will be on the higher side, but then each time you go to the bunk to do a tank full you won't feel the pinch.

5 adults and fully loaded boot does scrap the tall speedbreakers if taken carelessly, you can still get away on most of them without scrapping if done at single digit speeds

I have mentioned this earlier as well. If its petrol , nothing like the Honda City. Unlike the MJDs, petrol engine in the Ciaz is very ordinary. If its diesel , then its the Ciaz that should be your option 1

I think I'll be choosing from one of the Maruti stable only - additionally, my family wont allow me to go beyond Maruti. Moreover, i would need something for which spares would be available in every nook and corner !

M800 > Alto > Swift > SX4 > ???Probably CIAZ ??? !!

28 is ARAI figure - those who are running Diesel's, how much practical figures they are getting ? Around 20 or so ?

Anyone got hold of SHVS Ciaz yet ? I see no review of it anywhere

I have a question to ZXi + owners. My cousin currently has two offers for the Ciaz ZXi and ZXi +. The Ciaz ZXi with an aftermarket touchscreen HU (from the dealer so no warranty issues) Vinyl floor, mats, fabric seat covers and underbody coating quoted at 10.40 Lakhs OTR and the ZXi + with the same extras minus the HU for 10.83 Lakhs OTR in Cochin.
Does the Built in HU in the ZXi + support video playback. And is it worth the extra 43k to go for the ZXi +?

The HU video playback works only when the car is on handbrake. ZXi+ comes with touch screen HU as default. Have they changed options ?

Sorry if my post was confusing. The ZXi+ comes with the SmartPlay touchscreen HU as default. I meant that the extra accessories requested on the ZXi+ were only the Vinyl floor, mats and underbody coating. They quoted 22k for a Sony touchscreen HU which also had the disadvantage that the steering controls wouldn't work, that's when we got to thinking would the 43k extra over the ZXi be worth it to preserve the full functionality.

Thank you for the clairifcation that the HU does have video playback. I do understand why it would work only when stationary with the handbrake.

Ah okay. Now that I read it again, it makes sense.

Steering controls really help. ZXi also has steering controls integrated with the non touch screen HU.

Other than the HU, what you pay over ZXi for ZXi+ is 16" alloys instead of 15", all leather upholstery and a bit more of chrome as well. ZXi already has leather+fabric upholstery. Fabric over that which the dealer is providing will be loosing in a bit of leather.
