Even though our comparison below highlights both the similarities and differences between the two sedans from Maruti, we would like to reinstate that these two don’t compete directly with each other. The only purpose of this comparison is that all those who have been aspiring to buy the Ciaz owing to dissatisfaction with the current Dzire can now consider the new Dzire. The new Dzire is a lot more primum and upmarket product that the outgoing model. This definitely means that the gap between the Ciaz and the Dzire has reduced.

It gets many new features and gets the same 1.3 L Diesel engine, though in a lower state of tune, as the Ciaz.

New 2017 Maruti Dzire vs Maruti Ciaz- Exterior Design

While both the Marutis look stunning, their designs are very different when compared with each other. The Ciaz was born out of the Authentics sedan concept. Whereas the Dzire looks much like the latest generation Swift hatchback. Getting back to the Ciaz, it was conceptualized as a sedan. The Ciaz is a long, sleek  vehicle with elegance. The Dzire’s design is much  louder and thanks to all the chrome it has more flamboyance as well. While the Ciaz is a typical three-box design, the Dzire, thanks to its sub 4-metre credentials, has a stubby boot.


When both the cars are placed together, the Ciaz would look a lot better, thanks to its higher overall length. However, surprisingly the new Dzire is marginally wider. It is also lower than the previous generation model. All this would give the new 2017 Dzire a more planted stance. The Ciaz impresses with its sleek, long, almost stately (for a C-segmenter) look whereas the new Dzire looks fresh, somewhat flamboyant and even has a retro touch to its front-end.

The interior of the new Dzire, in comparison offers a touch of flamboyance thru bits like sporty dials and a flat-bottom steering wheel and . The Ciaz offers a comparitively more spacious cabin, which is primarily due to the really long wheelbase. Both rear and front passengers enjoy ample legroom. As mentioned earlier the new Dzire is wider than the Ciaz, . This means  akin to its pricier sibling the Ciaz, the new model of Dzire can now easily seat three adults at the rear.
