All the variants in the Ciaz range come with body-coloured bumpers, door handles and ORVMs. The base Sigma variant is offered with 15-inch steel wheels with wheel covers.

The Ciaz’s base variant is aggressively priced and doesn’t give a miss to any major must-have feature. However, few buyers may feel the dearth of features such as height-adjustable driver seat, electrically foldable ORVMs and reverse parking camera in this variant. According to us, Sigma variant is a good choice for buyers on a strict budget.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Sigma vs Delta variant

The Ciaz Delta costs Rs 62,000 more than Sigma. This variant offers the added features of front fog lamps, cruise control, auto AC, height-adjustable driver seat and 15-inch alloy wheels.

The Ciaz Delta’s additional premium of Rs 62,000 is quite justified. This variant’s additional features are mostly feel-good features. So, if you find these added features important, then you can definitely go for the Delta variant over the Sigma. You can even make the Delta more upmarket by retrofitting some features like touchscreen audio system, rear parking camera, leather upholstery or DRLs, which would cost you around Rs 30,000 to Rs 35,000.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Delta vs Zeta Variant

The Ciaz Zeta variant is Rs 77,000 more expensive than that the Delta variant.

In terms of safety, the Ciaz Zeta comes braced with auto-dimming IRVM with rear parking camera display and LED projector headlamps. The functional features of this variant include: adjustable rear headrests, auto headlamps, smart key with push-button Start/Stop and electrically foldable ORVMs. The Ciaz Zeta offers a more premium visual appeal as it flaunts DRLs, LED fog lamps and chrome door handles. 

The following are the list of added features of the Ciaz Zeta variant:

The Ciaz Zeta does not justify its additional premium of Rs 77,000 over the Delta for the added features it offers. Thus, we suggest that if you are eyeing the Ciaz Zeta for its feel-good features, then it is better to go for the Ciaz Alpha instead, as these 2 variants don’t have much price difference. 

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Zeta vs Alpha Variant

The Ciaz Alpha attracts an additional amount of around Rs 27,000 over the price of the Zeta variant for its added features.

The Ciaz Alpha variant offers 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, leather wrapped steering wheel and leather upholstery. This variant also comes with diamond-cut or machined alloy wheels along with bigger 16 inch wheels.

The Ciaz Alpha is Rs 27,000 more expensive than the Zeta, and the price difference is justified. However, as per our internal data, the Ciaz Alpha variant comes for a price jump of Rs 1.04 lakh over the Delta variant for its additional features, which is a bit expensive.

In a nutshell, the Ciaz Alpha is a well-rounded, worthy variant to choose for all those buyers who wish to go for an upmarket variant, and don’t mind paying some extra premium for that. 

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Alpha vs S Variant

The Ciaz S, which is a cosmetic upgrade of the Alpha variant, costs Rs 11,000 more.

The Ciaz Delta automatic variant offers all those features that the Delta manual comes packed with, which we have already mentioned. However, there are 2 additional features that the Ciaz Delta automatic offers -- electronic stability control and hill start assist. 

The Ciaz Delta automatic variant comes with all the basic features along with a few feel-good features. So its additional premium over the Ciaz Delta manual is justified. If you wish to go for the Ciaz automatic, but also have a budget constraint, then you can certainly go for the Ciaz Delta automatic variant. 

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Delta vs Zeta Automatic

The Ciaz Zeta automatic variant costs Rs 83,000 more than the Delta automatic.

The Ciaz Zeta automatic gets all the safety, functional and style features that the Zeta manual offers that we have already mentioned in the Ciaz manual variants section. Its additional premium of Rs. 83,000 over the Delta automatic is not justified. Hence, we suggest you go for the Ciaz Alpha automatic if you intend to have some feel-good features in your car, as the price difference is not much between these 2 variants.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Zeta vs Alpha Automatic

The Ciaz Alpha automatic variant is Rs 29,000 more expensive than the Ciaz Zeta automatic.

The Ciaz Alpha automatic variant comes with the same features that the Alpha manual version has in offer, that we have mentioned earlier. The Ciaz Alpha automatic variant is suitable for all those buyers who wish to go for a Ciaz automatic variant along with an upmarket appeal with lots of feel-good features. 

VERDICT : Which Variant Of The 2020 Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Petrol Should You Buy?

If you want to stick to a strict budget, but want the Ciaz, then the base Sigma variant is the one for you, as it offers all the basic features. If you wish to go for an upmarket variant of the Ciaz, then you have 2 options to choose from - Delta and Alpha. Unfortunately, in these 2 variants, you will have to compromise something or the other. 

If you choose the Delta variant over the Sigma variant, then without spending much you will get some feel-good features. However, you will miss out on many features that you should get in a premium compact sedan, such as touchscreen infotainment system, rear parking camera, auto-dimming IRVM, smart key with push-button start/stop, leather upholstery and steering, electrically-foldable ORVMs, LED headlamps and DRLs.

On the other hand, if you go for the Ciaz Alpha variant, then you get to have all these added features. However, then you will be compromising on the value, as the Alpha’s price is not justified over the Delta variant.

Hence, whether you wish to go for the Alpha or the Delta variant, it is completely up to you. We, however, prefer the Alpha.
