The new Honda City has been selling like hot cake in the country. The customers have been buying the new one over a strong competitor like the Maruti Ciaz. Honda sold 3128 units of the City in April 2021 whereas Maruti sold 1567 units of the Ciaz. This is almost half of what Honda sold. In this article, we will understand why Honda City outsells the Maruti Ciaz. Let’s go.
The new Honda City is 4549mm long, 1748mm wide and 1489mm tall. The Maruti Ciaz on the other hand is 4490mm long, 1730mm wide and 1485mm tall. The Honda City is thus taller, wider and longer than the Ciaz. This difference would clearly reflect inside the cabin when it comes to comfort levels.
The new Honda City looks every piece modern when it comes to styling. The car gets full LED Headlamps with 9 LED Array. Also, the car gets LED tail lamps which give it an all-around stylish appeal. Although the Ciaz also gets the LED treatment it has been the same for quite some time now. The Honda City on the other hand recently received a complete makeover which makes it more attractive for buyers.
As mentioned above, the City is a bigger car than the Ciaz. This would reflect in the cabin in aspects like knee room and legroom. Also, due to nature of these being chauffeur-driven cars, this creates a huge difference for the passenger sitting in the 2nd-row.
The Honda City does leave the Maruti Ciaz in the dirt when it comes to features. The City does get a long list of features that attract many buyers, especially with the trend of a car being loaded with tech features. 8 speaker premium sound system, remote engine start-stop, G-Meter, lane watch camera, one-touch electric sunroof, ambient lighting, connected car tech with Alexa integration, fully digital instrument cluster & 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system being some of them. The Maruti Ciaz, on the other hand, gets features like a touchscreen infotainment system (SmartPlay Studio), cruise control, keyless entry, auto AC, pollen filter, rear sunshade and rear seat adjustable headrest to name some.
The Honda City again takes the lead here by offering an extra diesel engine which the Maruti clearly misses. The City gets 1.5-litre petrol as well as a diesel engine. Both these engines come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The petrol unit also comes mated to a 7-speed CVT gearbox. The Ciaz on the other hand comes with a 1.5-litre petrol engine. This unit comes mated to a manual gearbox along with an automatic torque converter unit. This is also a major reason why Honda City outsells Maruti Ciaz.
