A Maruti loyalist to the core, as per Akhil was one and will be forever a Maruti fan, his love for Maruti seems to have grown with recent cars like; Baleno and Brezza from Maruti Stable. As per him Maruti cars are great value for money.

My Previous Car

I have been driving a Swift for last 7 years and I wanted to have a spacious car. I was looking for a SUV and a sedan as I had not driven either of these cars. Being a Maruti loyalist I was looking for a Value for Money spacious Maruti car. Swift has been a great Value for Money car for me due to its low cost of Service. I used to pay and average of Rs.4500 per service in a year. 

How does SHVS work - When you are at the red light, once you are in neutral and at 0 speed, the car will automatically switch off its ignition. The car restarts the moment I put my foot on the clutch. In idle situation situation the ignition will switch on on its own past 3 minutes of stationary time. Switchning on and off is battery operated and that saves my fuel.

What I like about my Maruti Suzuki Ciaz ZDi + SHVS

When I used to go out of town in my Swift with my family, all the luggage used to be inside the car, as Swift had no boot (Being a hatchback) making long journeys uncomfortable. Ciaz being my first sedan space inside the car is very generous. Legroom in the rear seat is pretty spacious even though I have not personally experienced rear seat space as I drive myself but my family post long out of city drive have found the seat in rear to be really spacious.

Mileage of my diesel Ciaz is as comparable as to my earlier CNG swift. CNG Swift used to give a mileage of 20 Kmpl in City and around 25 Kmpl on highway.

I like the front design  the bumper and fog lamps in particular. Interiors are equally good being a top-end car I enjoy chrome finish and wood finish as well leather seat which makes makes the interior of my Ciaz really upmarket.

I like its stereo, bluetooth and rear camera. Camera view is visible in my display screen and the view is very good. Apple car play is very good and a convenient feature.

Driving is very smooth, pick-up of the car is very peppy, put the leg on the accelerator and it runs very fast and I like that very much.

What I do not like about by Maruti Suzuki Ciaz ZDI + SHVS

My Ciaz diesel comes with Apple car play and they have map tie-up with 'MapMyInida' for maps which are not good. I wish Maruti ties up with Google maps for navigational purpose and also supports android phones.

When I compare acceleration from stand still of Ciaz diesel with i20, I did notice a time lag of 1-2 secs before the car responds to my acceleration inputs in Ciaz diesel, did not experinec any such problem with my friends i20 car when i drovce it for a goodish bit of distance. It seems during that period the engine is missing.

When you release the clutch and accelerate, there seems to be a tuning mismatch in the Ciaz diesel as you suddenly realise that you have given more raise and the car is not ready for the acceleration, during these times I feel the car picks-up slowly.


Switched from hatchback to sedan even though family was not in favor of it and they did want me to buy a car in double digits. Yet I bought it and I believe I have made the best decision by buying Maruti Suzuki Ciaz ZDi.


Being a long car parking is difficult in Delhi however that is not the car’s negative.
