Do a back to back TD and that is the only way you can decide.

I have Test driven the Ciaz today and City before that and I liked both. What I liked about Ciaz was it's planted drive, whereas City is peppy with fast pickup.

In terms of features, Ciaz has a beep sound to alert if speed goes above 80k, which is a bit annoying but it's good for our own safety as our roads aren't safe above those speed limits. While with the City the drive is better than Ciaz, but it's only Marginally better. Further Ciaz comes fully loaded with features like start-stop button, touchscreen, LED and Fog headlamps, etc but these are missing in City.

So I am bit confused.

Simple, if you care about other people's opinion, buy the city. If you want value for money and don't care about what others think, buy the ciaz.

Both cars are very similar, both are tin cans, both are not as nice as a vento/rapid to drive, both are reliable, both will fetch you good resale.

Now,
I am confused between Honda City Edge Edition and Ciaz Top end Alpha variant. Any advise on how to decide?
I would suggest the City edge edition. It comes with all the necessary goodies and the petrol engine is a star performer. Wrt Ciaz you would probably miss on only touchscreen. The steering in the City is also better.

So depends on what's your drug : Touchscreen or Power

Personally I drive City and I did take extensive test drive of first gen Ciaz. In my opinion if you want to be chauffeur driven then Ciaz is a better car. It has better ride quality and more spacious interior. City has a little bumpy ride at low speeds and over broken roads. But if you want to drive yourself then City will be better choice as the engine, steering feel and everything about driving is better in City. I found Ciaz a bit boring to drive. Otherwise both these cars are very similar.

I'm not sure but these are probably not LEDs. It's the detailing that makes it look like LEDs. Again I'm not sure.

It appears to me you want to decide if the City drive is worth the extra money, or would you find the Ciaz adequate for your needs, but it wont be your beater car.



If I got it right, as suggested above - a longish test drive of both cars on the same day, preferably on a route similar to your usage pattern will help you decide.

Ciaz is more VFM with the updates. City on the other hand has increased the prices of V variant which was below 10 lacs. Now SV variant with addition of aftermarket looking rear parking sensors and camera, machine cut 15 inch alloys and cruise control is priced at 9.75 lakhs, while the V variant is priced at 10.25 lakhs.

The Maruti Ciaz Facelift. EDIT: Now launched at ₹ 8.19 lakhs-citypricesdelhi.jpg

So, if we compare Ciaz Alpha with City SV edition then the extras at just 25k premium are:

LED fog lamps, headlights, tail lamps
16 inch machine cut alloys
Leather seats
Leather wrapped steering wheel
Touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Car Play.
Push Button Start and Key less Entry
Colour MID
Mild Hybrid system

The Maruti Ciaz Facelift. EDIT: Now launched at ₹ 8.19 lakhs-cityedgefront.jpg

No Fog Lamps

The parking sensors and camera look like an accessory shop fitment.

In the tail lamps the pilot lamps are LED. Brake, indicator and reverse lamps are conventional bulbs.

Quite a sweet facelift. Currently the most VFM in the segment, petrol in particular. But the ATs deserve a CVT considering Maruti has been trying to position this as 'premium sedan'. 4 speed TC is a definite downer. Wake up Maruti!

I had a chance to look at the new Ciaz at the Popular's Nexa Showroom at Mount Road. No doubt it looks premium and all models come with smart hybrid engines.

Saw a huge gap between the radiator and the engine block. When I enquired, the sales guy replied, " sir, it is for safety".

It depends what are you looking for in a car. I have driven both the cars at the same stretch (from Delhi to Jodhpur) and I feel both the cars are pretty much different.

Ciaz is a lot more comfortable as compared to City. The former provides a much better ride as compared to city and it made the journey less tiring (for driver as well as passengers).

On the other hand, City was incredible to drive. It handles so much well on curves but it crashes into the potholes. I didn't feel the ride was as comfortable as that of Ciaz.

On the safety aspect, both the cars are not built like a tank but City feels like it's built quality is better.

In around 11 lacs, Ciaz will be able to provide you with more features which will make the drive more comfortable.

If I were in your place, I would go for the Ciaz as it looks more value for money.

I checked out the new Ciaz on display. Showroom had the Zeta petrol on display which had the fog surrounds finished in brushed aluminium and looked good compared to the chrome finish in Alpha.

The SA told the same can be had in alpha too as an accessory. So folks who don't like chrome can opt for these. I'm not sure if these are standard on the Zeta though.

This looks premium especially from outside. All that is lacking as the experts have already pointed out are a Sun Roof, 6 Airbags and a much peppier engine (atleast as an option). 1.3L Diesel is not as exciting anymore as it was earlier. I am not sure why did they not consider the 1.6L Fiat engine that they have tried out with their other vehicles earlier?

Wow,

A petrol makes more & more sense now.

21+ kmpl on a petrol engine can be given only by Maruti Suzuki only

I think this is due to that mild hybrid system built in.

Anyway, Car looks way too good. Might be my next buy, in case the zoomcar/revv monthly hire model doesn't workout.

His reply is correct. European pedestrian safety regulations mandate space between bumper and the engine block for placement of impact beams that act as buffers in case of impact with a pedestrian.
