Maruti Ciaz Vs Hyundai Verna

With Launch of Next Gen Hyundai Verna, the supremacy of Ciaz is close to end. Hyundai India has done exemplary Job in All New Verna in making it Price Competitive, Performance, Stylish, Loaded with Features, Safety and yet packed in low Maintenance Car.

Here is Brief Comparison of All New Ciaz against Next Gen Verna

Maruti Ciaz Plus Points

Maruti Ciaz Facelift Model

Rear Seat Space: This is the biggest USP of Maruti Ciaz. Sit in Ciaz and experience to enjoy in loads of Rear Seat Legroom. If you are the one who loves to seat on Rear Seats, love loads of Spacious Rear Seat Legroom then thanks to design and longer wheelbase of 2650mm - Ciaz has a huge edge feel.

Although Verna has better under-thigh support on Rear Seat , but Verna Biggest Weakling is Compact Rear Seat Legroom Space. Sit in Ciaz First on Rear Seats and then sit in Verna . Feel the Difference both cars have. You may even feel that you sitting in One Segment Down Car

So – if Rear Seat Space Matters a lot then Ciaz is what it excels as against Hyundai Verna

Mileage : Smart Hybrid Technology in Diesel along with Tuned Petrol Engine – care for Mileage, nothing to beat Ciaz in Mid Saloon Segment as the end resultant Mileage would be Best in Segment making low Running Costs


Hyundai Verna (Next Gen Verna) Plus Points

Hyundai Verna

Automatic Transmission: 6 Speed Automatic Transmission is what the standard norm Internationally and feels much more advanced as against Outdated 4 Speed Automatic

You Test Drive Verna and Ciaz – Observe the levels of refinement Verna has in Petrol Automatic. Although Ciaz does not come in Diesel Automatic – but Verna Diesel Automatic

Drive, Handling, Suspension – Build on Similar Platform as what Elantra is – Hyundai Verna Ride and Handling along with Driving Dynamics especially in Diesel is almost like a segment up car. Infact – no comparison on Power, Performance, Refinement. The Suspension Dynamics feels much improved in Next Gen Verna and if you looking for a better car from Driving Perspective – Verna is default pick

Even in Petrol – Hyundai India did considerable job in making Verna a perfect driver car – almost to levels of refinement Honda Car India has done in IVtec Engine. Expect Verna Petrol Drive, Handling aspect to near best in Mid Saloon Segment too outperforming Ciaz in a big wat

Build Appeal – As against Skinny Build of Ciaz – Hyundai Verna feels much more solid from Side Panel. Open Side door of both cars and feel to experience in the Solid appeal as felt in Verna. With option of 6 Airbags in Top End Sx Option even infuses more confidence in Safety Aspect

Common Factors

Interior Aesthetic Styling – Hyundai Next Gen Verna Interior Aesthetics feels good, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Interiors too good. Although none come with exceptional appeal – its mostly to one individualistic taste preference appeal

Steering Appeal – Although Hyundai India seems improvising in Steering appeal with almost every generation car. But overall Steering Appeal, Feel factor seems similar in both Cars. Both are light and weighs up marginally. Its German Maker – Vento, Rapid – which remains the best in Steering Connected appeal

Maintenance – Although Hyundai India revamped in Service Schedule with longer service replacement interval of Filters, but in real life situations based on spare prices – expect Similar cost of Ownership as Maintenance Costs of both Cars
