CONCLUSION


Maruti was dealing with the efficient and affordable hatchback. With this segment they have already connected with the masses but the company was lagging behind in the price bracket of 10 lacs and they broke the ice with all new launch of a premium C-class segment Maruti ciaz that falls under the segment price of 8lac to 10 lacs. And with rising chart of the car it had started being a threat to other cars in the segment such as Honda City, Hyundai Verna.

Things which we like:-

  • A large boot space of 510 liters.
  • Cabin is being provided with almost all facilities from the rear seat cup holder to rear ac vents.
  • Value for money, as it is main concern for their competitors.
  • Mileage from the diesel variant makes it a most efficient car of the segment as 28.09 kmpl.

Things for the concern:-

  • The average performance of engine is a downside for a premium segment.
  • Mid segment fittings are being installed which effects the premium ambience.
