Spec comparison: 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Alpha 1.5 AT Vs Toyota Yaris VX AT

We have looked at nearly every aspect of the new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and how it faces up to the competition. Now, here is a look at how the Ciaz goes up against the Yaris. However, this not just any variant of the Yaris. Rather it’s the top-of-the-line VX AT which goes up against top spec Ciaz Alpha AT.

Exterior
Easily, the best looking car in the segment is the Hyundai Verna and so both the Ciaz and Yaris look like softer and safer bets as compared to these vehicles. When looking at both these vehicles, the Yaris does stand out more as the face has more elements. In profile too, the Yaris stands out more as it has a proportional rear overhang when compared to the Ciaz. The Maruti does manage to claw back its way in terms of rear looks thanks to the LED infused tail lamps.

Interior
On paper, both cars are evenly matched in terms of features and offer roughly the same levels of comfort. You get a touchscreen system, climate control with rear AC vents and optional leather upholstery. However, the Yaris has its rear vents mounted on the roof, seven airbags and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat. Where the Yaris has gone for beige and black as the cabin trim, Maruti Suzuki has gone for a large amount of beige with faux wood inserts.

Engines
The Ciaz and the Yaris both make use of a 1.5-litre petrol motor. In the case of the former, it’s a new engine from the Japanese automaker and produces 103bhp/138Nm and is offered with a four-speed AT. The Yaris’ mill produces 106bhp/140Nm and is mated to a CVT. With the Ciaz you get mild-hybrid technology that assists with battery energy regeneration, torque assist and start-stop function. Toyota too has hinted at this for the Yaris in place of a diesel model but has not confirmed anything till now.

Conclusion  
The Yaris is priced at Rs 16.3 lakhs (on-road Delhi) while the Ciaz is significantly lower at Rs 12.3 lakhs (on-road Delhi). However, these cars are proper rivals for each other as they both compete in the C-segment.
