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.

I would like say - not recommended-- drive to hills without stopping not possible - power will break after crossing 18-20 hair pin bends,.. we need to give break

Sure bro but ciaz S or rs model will have low ground clearance than the regular one .but it's not a big deal .
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.
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
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.
Maruti Ciaz gets all-new 1.5-litre K15B engine making 105PS@6000rpm and 138Nm@4400rpm. That’s a jump of 14PS and 8Nm over the outgoing model powered by the 1.4-litre engine. The new engine comes with the choice of a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed AT torque converter. On the features front, the 2018 Ciaz offers Bluetooth connectivity, all four power windows, keyless entry, rear parking sensors ABS,, dual airbags and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard. Climate control and cruise control is available from the Delta variants onwards. The touchscreen SmartPlay infotainment system, on the other hand, is available with the Alpha variants only, while the ESP and hill-hold assist is available with the just AT variants.

I am riding it in city everyday .. I am using 3rd or sometimes 4th gear...Always below it....15.2 kmph (AC) is what I am getting..On highways 18 to 19.... Speaking about experience I feel it's best in class ...When u compared with other rivals...Moreover you can even drive on village roads comfortably without touching any lower body parts... Service cost is low...

If your usage is less on day to day basis then ciaz Petrol may be a good option. It’s a smooth and adequately powered engine which offers good performance and economy that’s required for normal family usage
