My Previous Car

I owned Alto K10 LXi for 6 years and had clocked 1 lacs plus Kms. I was considering a SUV; however one look at Maruti Suzuki Ciaz made me decide in favour of the Ciaz over a SUV.

Alto K10 was my first car (before that I used to drive my dad’s car) it’s therefore very close to heart. The best part of Alto K10 is that you can drive it any place, with my compact and nimble Alto K10 I will never used to think twice before venturing into crowded areas like; Chandini Chowk or even Sadar Bazar in Delhi.

Alto K10 used to give me a Mileage of around 15-16 Kmpl in City and 17-18 Kmpl on highway. Post getting it fitted with sequential CNG kit the Mileage shot up to 20 Kmpl in city and 25 Kmpl on highway.

Brief note on SHVS

Salesperson told me that whenever you apply brakes the battery will be charged automatically. On traffic signals the car automatically switches off the ignition once the car is slotted into neutral and it switches on the moment you press the clutch. Other conditions where the Ciaz will switch itself on are; if duration of stop crosses 3 minutes or if the ambient temperature exceeds the Set Auto AC temperature. One can decide to switch of this functionality by simply switching off the button.

What I love about my Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Legroom of the car is amazing both in the front and rear seat. Even when I push my driver seat fully back backwards a good 6 feet well built adult can sit very easily in the rear seat and yet enjoy a comfortable legroom.

Boot space can easily take two large suitcases with 3 cabin sized bag. Boot space can easily carry luggage of family of 3 without any problem.

Drive of the car is smooth. Even at 170 Kmpl the car was not shivering, car control and balance was really amazing and confidence inspiring.

Ciaz Stereo system offers amazing sound clarity.  One can use the stereo, CD, USB or even Bluetooth to listen to one’s playlist over the car’s speakers.

Steering mounted control for bluetooth and stereo is very convenient. Rear AC Vents, Mobile charging point in front and rear of the car, bottle holders in all doors are other convenience enhancing features of the Ciaz.

From Alto to CIaz it’s a huge upgrade, this gives me a luxurious feel. Driver side armrest and rear seat centre armrest with cup holders offer great comfort to me and rear seat family members over long journeys.

In winter even though my Ciaz does not have rear wiper, however, rear defogger works quite well in clearing the fog over rear windshield during winters.

What I don’t like in my Ciaz

I don’t like its body, it is very light quality and I feel it’s even lighter than my earlier Alto K10. I got dent on my bonnet when someone just leaned on it. I have to be very cautious while driving and braking; as I believe even a minor touch will give my car a decent dent to it and my pocket.


Ciaz is a car for all irrespective of the gender or age.


Light body across the car. This means they have reduced the weight of the car to get more average.
