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.
With the update, the Ciaz gets a new 1.5-litre petrol engine paired with Suzuki’s mild-hybrid tech. Fire the motor up and it sputters to life with a mild thrum that quickly disappears. And, for the most part, the motor is happy being the quiet kid. It’s only when you poke it quite a bit does it get vocal. But that raspy engine note is oddly enjoyable. The new engine produces 105PS of power and 138Nm of torque. Quick maths will tell you that’s 12.5PS and 8Nm extra over the outgoing 1.4-litre motor. So, we weren’t really expecting it to kick us in the guts to begin with. And quite expectedly, it didn’t. To drive, it's more or less similar to the outgoing engine. It isn't particularly exciting in any manner. At the same time, it doesn't feel inadequate at any point either. If there’s one word that describes the Ciaz’ ride and handling, it’s ‘predictable’. There’s absolutely nothing here that seems out of line for a sedan its size, and nothing that’s extraordinary either. Over the smooth roads, the Ciaz felt nice and composed. As the speeds build up, it feels planted enough to inspire confidence in the driver. That said, at triple-digit speeds, rear seat occupants will feel some vertical movement as and when the car goes over or an expansion joint or an imperfection in the road surface. Low-speed ride, too, is comfortable. Ground clearance isn’t an issue either, and the Ciaz managed to tackle non-existent roads well. Expect some side-to-side rocking through really bad craters, though.

The road grip is very good. Suspension, though a bit on the stiffer side, is excellent at high speeds and will keep most of the bumps out of the cabin. Top speed I've touched in my 1.3 diesel is 180+, but it is more comfortable and relaxed if you maintain between 80 and 120. Mileage, I use the car for daily commute of around 60 Kms and I'm getting 17-18 kmpl in the city, with AC. I haven't really kept an eye out when on long journeys, but it should easily return 20+.

Ciaz Diesel gives 23-25avg on highways and 19-20avg in city even with heavy traffic. Ciaz is amazing in terms of road grip. In suspensions, if compared to the same segment of cars it is not world class however if you look Ciaz in isolation you will not be able to complaint much.Overall there might not be a better value for money car which is spacious (cabin and boot), feature rich, strong, good looking and easy driving. Ciaz Hybrid is a must recommend.
It is better to use only the tyres which are fitted by the Manufacturer. You can fit wider tyres provided the OD of the tyre is similar to the tyres that are fitted originally by the Manufacturer. For this you will have to contact some Sales Staff of a Tyre Manufacturer who has knowledge about this or a Tyre Dealer who knows how to calculate the Overall Dimensions of a Tyre. But please note the following......(i) mileage may decrease (ii) check if your car is under warranty and whether the warranty will be affected by using tyres other than those prescribed . No manufacturer or Authorised Dealer will recommend Tyres other than what is prescribed for the Model and any changes made in the size of the Tyre will be at your own risk.
