  • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Dimensions (length/width/height):


4490 mm


1730 mm


1485 mm


2650 mm

Kerb Weight

1027 Kg

Compared with its main rivals: Hyundai Verna (4440mm* 1729mm* 1475mm) and Honda City (4440mm* 1695mm* 1495mm), the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is larger in size but lighter in weight. Ciaz is 148kg lighter than the City 143 lighter than the Verna. The advantages of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz in dimensions and kerb weight could contribute to its improvement of ride quality since it would have a lighter control and steering than its main rivals.


  • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Ground Clearance:

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz has a typical ground clearance of a sedan, which is 170mm. As its main competitors, the Hyundai Verna owns a ground clearance of 165mm, which is 5mm lower than the Ciaz. And the Honda City also owns a 5mm lower ground clearance than Ciaz, which is 165mm. All these sedans are not quite suitable to deal with the various and complicated road situations in India with their ground clearance. However, with 5mm higher, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz could have a better performance in different road conditions.



  • Ride Quality of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz:

The ride quality of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz could be one of the most serious problems that stop people from buying it. Yes, you can have a spacious cabin inside which means you will have lots of legroom. Siting inside would not make you feel unharmonious and you will have a smooth linear acceleration and light handling. However, you cannot resist the bother from the extremely noisy and unsettled engine. You can even hear every single bump and have the feeling of sitting on the running machine. Everything under the hood is so obvious that would take the driving comfort away. And the high speed ride quality is bouncy and unstable.


  • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Specification & Features:

Another problem that stops the Ciaz from climbing a segment over its main rivals is that it doesn' t offer the powerful engine as its main rivals do. Let' s take a look at the engine option of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
