Disadvantages of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz
Con no. 1: The price quotation is pretty high. The base price being 6.99 lacs going upto 9.80 lacs depending upon the variants is something demanding attention. Honda City, Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid and Nissan Sunny fall in the same price range.
Con No. 2: Diesel engine turbo lags when fully laden and can’t match the performance of Verna and rapid.
Con No. 3: 1.4 litre petrol has least power rating in the league. Way far from City i-VTEC and Vento TSI.
Con No. 4: Mid-sized and lightweight lacks the solidity and sheering of European rivals. -As far its rear is concerned, it is strange, that it is hard to miss the striking similarity with Honda City
