Full Review

While looking for a proper sedan, I considered City, Verna & Ciaz as the obvious choices. My requirements were- petrol engine ( as my usage is around 10-12k KMS/yr), auto transmission- a must have as it has also to be driven by my wife, spacious & comfortable (have 2 kids in the family), decent milage ( as it's my daily drive to office) Test drove all 3 sedans before making a decision. Dropped Verna because of its lack of rear seat space & headroom ( I being 5'9" and my head scrapped the roof regularly), also feedbacks on its automatic's milage were not encouraging. City was impressive in it's drive and handling & also rear bench space is very good, but it's auto variant is ~ 3 lacs more than Ciaz's. Then I test drove Ciaz auto, and was pleasantly surprised by its performance and comfort. Frankly, it's 4 speed torque converter auto transmission is not speed or performance oriented, but for a daily drive in rush hour traffic, it doesn't dissapoint. It's very refined, with hardly any NVH inside the cabin & has enough grunt to quickly fill those traffic gaps. Biggest plus is the Hybrid engine- which basically is the engine start/stop tech that works smoothly & seemlessly to stop the engine when idle & restarts at the slight tap of accelerator pedal. It does help to save those extra mls of ever expensive fuel. Rear seat space is impressive, can seat 3 healthy adults without any problem of any sort, plus it has rear AC vents also. My 6 yr old daughter, uses that bench to sleep comfortably during our drives. Have done 3k KMS & 6 months with the car and Nexa service experience has also been good, with timely service reminder and I didn't spend even 1 Re on its 1st 2 services. During these 3k KMS in daily rush hour traffic, am getting 12 kmpl. Haven't taken it much on open highways, but am sure there, this milage would improve by 4-5 kmpl atleast. Cons- nothing significant here, as Ciaz proves it's worth as a real value for money car, really feels premium in it's Alpha variant ( all LED setup, 16" alloys, all leather upholstery including leather wrapped steering wheel, 7" touchscreen ICE unit with Android auto & apple car play, enough chrome all around) Overall, Ciaz is the car that appeals much more to the mind than your heart, and keeps you amply comfortable and happy in it's every drive.
