      Hi Rohan

      Yes, the Maruti Ciaz looks appealing; however, it is powered by 1.3-litre multi-jet engine that also powers the Dzire and Ertiga. It would be wiseful, if Maruti introduce a top-end Ciaz with 1.6-litre multi-jet motor while the standard models would carry the same 1.3-litre motor.

      Hi Naveen Rana

      Undoubtedly, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is a more value for money product when compared to Hyundai Verna. The simple reason is that Suzuki has the largest dealership network in the country. Moreover, it is also the most fuel efficient sedan in its league.
