Extended Test: Suzuki Ciaz 1.4 GLX [Video]

Although the compact sedan market has shrunk due to the public's growing predilection for hatchbacks and compact family cars/crossovers, cars such as the value-oriented, spacious Suzuki Ciaz still offer a lot of appeal if you're urban-based and need to cart around people and their luggage.

What's more, because it is powered by the same naturally aspirated 1.4-litre petrol engine found in the popular Swift hatchback, the Ciaz is particularly fuel-efficient, as we found.

In this video we take a detailed look at the standard features of this GLX derivative (compared to the base-spec GL), as well as boot capacity, rear seat space, fuel consumption and a few issues that we've experienced in our time with the car.
