Compare Honda City Vs Hyundai Verna Vs Maruti Ciaz

Compare Honda City Vs Hyundai Verna Vs Maruti Ciaz

Snapshot: With the new City, Honda expects to regain the lead it once had. You get more features now and the car is now in the belly of the segment.

Honda has an answer to the Maruti Ciaz, which’s topping the sales chart at the moment. It’s the new City. It gets a nip-and-tuck job along with added safety features. Both Verna and Ciaz are due to get an update shortly, but here they are caught on the hop. So should you go with the City or not, we try to find out in this comparison story.

Design and Exteriors

Without a doubt, Ciaz and City are the bigger cars and they look so too. But none lack in space and offers more or less the same space and comfort for the passengers. The Fluidic design language works well in case of the Verna but age has finally caught up with it. Maruti Ciaz continues to be as appealing as it once was and it’s largely because of the unassuming design that has aged well. Honda City now gets LED headlight and taillight cluster while silhouette remains the same making it look most upmarket and futuristic of them all.

Exterior Maruti Ciaz Hyundai Verna Honda City
Length 4490 mm 4375 mm 4440 mm
Width 1730 mm 1700 mm 1695 mm
Wheelbase 2650 mm 2570 mm 2600 mm
Height 1485 mm 1475 mm 1495 mm
Wheels 195 / 55 R16 (Alloy) 195 / 55 R16 (Alloy) 185 / 55 R16 (Alloy)

While Ciaz may have an ageless form, it surely looks a generation behind the City as well as the Verna on account of it old headlight and taillight cluster. The headlight and taillight design alone manage to jazz up the looks of the car and make them look much more futuristic.      

Interiors and Features

Verna always had an edge when it comes to interiors. The wood grained instrument and door panels lend a classy feel making it look more premium. There are features galore including rain sensing wipers, rheostat adjustment for cabin light, automatic headlight control etc. All cars offer dual-tone interiors with dual tone dash with City being the only exception that uses an all-black scheme for dash with beige seats. City and Verna offer a 17.7 cm touch-screen system while only Ciaz supports apple CarPlay and Android Auto. City offers a first-in-class Wi Fi USB receiver that let you browse internet on the go.  

The City doesn’t change much in terms of features, while you do get 6 airbags now with the top variant ZX. ISOFIX, ABS with EBD and two airbags are available as standard though. Ciaz trails the pack with 2 airbags on offer. Ciaz entry level variants, VXi and VDi also skip ABS and offers only the driver side airbag.

The ergo lever is a great comfort feature that gives Verna a clear advantage among all, City’s USP is the sunroof. While Ciaz may not offer any great distinguishing advantage as such but it has a clear cost advantage.  

Engine and Transmission

The Verna offers four engine choices, 1.4 litre petrol and diesel, 1.6 litre diesel and petrol. Option of automatic is available with larger diesel and petrol only though. City and Ciaz offer a petrol and diesel engine option with automatic transmission only with the petrol.

Ciaz offers a 1.3 litre diesel and 1.4 litre petrol while City offers similar capacity 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engine. Ciaz like Verna uses an AT while City uses a CVT transmission and now offers 7-step paddle shifters.

Verdict

The City is indeed the King of the segment still, and is the car that we would advise you to go with. The safety equipment is now at par with the rest and the package even more attractive. Verna and Ciaz should better catch up.
