Suzuki Ciaz is the Sub-compact Sedan for the Millennial

NOTE: http://prone.website always plagiarizes this blog. Can someone please report this nutcase?

Wednesday last week, April 13, 2016, I was invited by Suzuki Philippines as it launched the Suzuki Ciaz, a sub-compact sedan which I believe is a perfect car for the Millennial kids of today. I heard someone mention “Suzuki Ciaz is an authentic sedan.” It probably is. I asked around trying to figure out what the name meant. Well, Suzuki Ciaz is a short-cut label for “City from A to Z,” probably a moniker of a car that can transport you within the Metropolis an beyond; or from point A to point Z. Something like that.

The guys at Suzuki Philippines say the Ciaz is the best-in-class fuel efficiency. Clearing the cobwebs and nose-bleed engine terminology, I say the new technology of the Suzuki Ciaz four-speed automatic transmission improves fuel efficiency and elevates driving performance, including the car’s smartly designed body to create a smoother airflow which adds to fuel efficiency. Right?

Suzuki Ciaz means City from A to Z

Let’s go inside the Suzuki Ciaz which sports a multimedia integrated audio unit using an Android touchscreen and complete with Bluetooth and USB connections for tablets and smartphones that everyone has. The Ciaz is also ready with wireless connectivity and the Android console comes with preloaded applications such as YouTube, Gmail, Facebook and Waze.

Still inside, what was once only seen in Ferraris is now becoming a standard even in sub-compact sedans. The Suzuki Ciaz has hands-free connectivity control switches on the steering wheel. Yeah, the wheel. No more looking up the road and down the dashboard to fiddle on the audio system and other tasks that may result in a road accident. Plus the Ciaz also comes with a keyless push start system and remote. How awesome is that for a sub-compact sedan?

During the launch, I went inside the passenger seat at the back. It’s assumed front seats are all adjustable and all but the back seat is fixed and stationary and can’t be adjusted. Nice ample space. I slouched a little bit and my legs still didn’t hit the front seat. I also noticed the Suzuki Ciaz has a bigger door entrance despite being a sub-compact sedan. Then, I went out and opened the trunk. The specs sheet said the Suzuki Ciaz has a luggage capacity of 495 liters. I really didn’t know how to equate that to visual measurements but I can plainly say the Suzuki Ciaz has a spacious trunk. So, probably 495 litters means a “spacious trunk.” Also, the trunk closes with an electromagnetic latch and features a boot light.

The Suzuki Ciaz features its patented Total Effective Control Technology (or TECT). It also has a strong impact absorption system and a its own Anti-Brake Locking Technology.

Now comes the price:

The entry-level Suzuki Ciaz GL Manual Transmission retails for P738,000.

The mid-level Suzuki Ciaz GL Automatic Transmission sells for P773,000.

The higher-end, everything-on-it Suzuki Ciaz GLX goes for P888,000.
