The petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines of Maruti Ciaz are mated to a 5-speed manual, while the 1.5-litre diesel is coupled to a 6-speed manual. The petrol motor also comes with the option of a 4-speed AT. On the other hand, Swift is powered by a 1.3-litre diesel unit and a 1.2-litre petrol engine. Both the powertrains come with the option of either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox.
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.

165 mm ground clearance is enough for India roads, at some places while parking you might feel it touch the ground or some speed breaker's. But otherwise it is enough. and as far as Ciaz is concerned, it is a light weight car. the body parts are very light. otherwise in all other aspects it is a wonderful car.

If you need a spacious car with brilliant back seat comfort, reliability and peace of mind, go for Ciaz. It also hass 170 mm ground clearance. Whereas, if you want a good performer and can compromise on space go for verna. Ciaz has the highest ground clearance in its class.
I own a ciaz RS model, its ground clearance is lesser than regular ciaz even then the car is a good to go to hilly areas as well. I have taken it to himachal, uttarakhand hills multiple times and its a pleasure.

Very good you will enjoy the hills ride.. sometimes you may feel it underpowered when you go high altitude..but riding quality is awesome and it's very easy to handle the on curvey road..
The Verna stands out with segment-first features like ventilated front seats and hands-free automatically opening boot-lid. These are premium features it borrows from its larger sibling, the Elantra. On the other hand, the unavailability of a telescopically-adjustable steering at this price point makes it feel less premium. Whereas, the Ciaz feels adequately equipped amongst its competition, but it does not stand apart. The Ciaz has the best touchscreen infotainment system in this comparison, it is also the only car to be offered with a fuel-saving automatic start/stop system. The Ciaz is the only car here to offer just two airbags, the other two offer six! For the price, the exclusion of features like a cruise control system, telescopically-adjustable steering and rain sensing wipers make it feel dated. Although, Maruti is going to launch Ciaz facelift on August 6, 2018. That's said, Both Ciaz and Verna have their own strengths and it's all depends on one's needs and brand preference.

Both are indeed good cars and stand well on their ground. There is no doubt that Verna is a clear winner as Ciaz stands behind when it comes to specifications, power, and performance. However, if you want nothing but just a car for daily commuting then Ciaz is the car to go for.

Overall Verna has more features and is more expensive but ciaz is more spacious and economical. Overall verna is better if you can shell more money
The Maruti Ciaz facelift is powered by a new 1.5-litre petrol engine and carries forward the existing 1.3-litre diesel motor too. The new K15 petrol engine is rated at 105PS/138Nm, while the Fiat-borrowed diesel engine produces 90PS/200Nm. Both the engines are mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission. The petrol, however, comes with an option of a 4-speed automatic. Coupled with SHVS mild-hybrid tech, the petrol Ciaz returns a claimed mileage of 21.56kmpl (MT) and 20.28kmpl (AT), while ARAI claimed fuel efficiency of the diesel engine stands at 28.09kmpl. Although, we have yet to test Ciaz in real world conditions. If you'll be driving more in heavy city traffic then we suggest you to opt for Automatic Transmission(AT) which are easier to use and more comfortable for the driver, while Manual Transmission vehicles are less expensive more involved & are more fun to drive on highways. On the other hand, manual transmissions offer much greater control over the vehicle's driving dynamics. There's really no substitute for the driving experience and level of control over the vehicle that a manual transmission can offer. Apart from it, if you are more like the average driver who simply wants to get from one place to another in the most efficient and comfortable way possible, go with the AT. If you are traveling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day.
