Pros and Cons

  • Positives
  • Negatives

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

  • Spacious
  • comfortable and feels premium. Second row leg room can shame cars from many segments above it.

Volkswagen Virtus

  • Classy design
  • spacious interior
  • intuitive infotainment package and punchy petrol engines

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

  • Only 2 airbags in even the top Alpha model. No sunroof which it's rivals have.Not the most inspiring to drive

Volkswagen Virtus

  • Interior quality could’ve been richer
  • 1.5-litre petrol commands a hefty premium for incremental benefits

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am looking for petrol car and confused between Ciaz top model and Verna 2nd top? Which is better? Is 165 mm ground clearance is sufficient in Indian roads?
  • Just go for ciaz delta or zetta manual transmission and have a fun drive but don't buy hyundai venue when you look hyundai its great but in driving after sometime it will dissapoint on the otherhand maruti ciaz not more ground clearance more mileage more prestige but if you say luxury is more in hyundai i agree with you but only luxury nothing else maruti ciaz is something different from others just go and take test drive sit in car for 5 minutes and then drive and feel
  • Verna SX without a doubt. First there is the sunroof which gives the car a premium feel. Then there are lots of cool features like digital instrument cluster, smart trunk, wireless charger, etc. Verna engine is very refined. It has the most silent cabin ( best in the segment). Smooth gearbox ( even better than Honda City). Pleasant and soft to drive. Plus Hyundai has better build quality.
  • Ciaz shall be the better option, m driving it for around last one year, it is very spacious, most fuel efficient in its class, maximum ground clearance in its class, vast service network in India with spares available easily as compared to others. For City spares are not easily available, verna's spares are also costlier than ciaz.All in all Ciaz is a very good package. My Ciaz gives me 21.5 km/ltrs average in city traffic, thanks to its Diesel Hybrid engine.

Q. Which car is better under 10-12 lakh with sunroof?
  • Ideally, Sun roof is not a highly needed feature in INDIA. It has remained more of an emotional connect with families, otherwise, it has more disadvantages then the advantages by having it in a car. Even if, you still want to go for Sun roof, Honda City is a better choice. You may also prefer to install it, if you highly needed it..!
  • If ground clearance is not an issue go for Honda City
  • Bro, XUV300 IS THE BEST WITH SUNROOF

Q. What is the best value for money ciaz variant.
  • If you have budget of 10Lakh then Delta you can choose or if you can stretch it to 11.5L then Alpha is better option. if you are not concerned of budget then top end variant S you can choose. recently i have bought Alpha manual petrol BS6 which has all the features and best VFM according to me.
  • It completely depends on your criteria... Like I am also a ciaz owner what I wanted was an automatic transmission therefore I went with the top of the line variant
  • It depends on your requirements, every variant has a step up, I have the Alpha model and it is pretty good, with the alloy wheels and the touchscreen infotainment system.
