The new Suzuki Ciaz may be a bare bones car, but those set of bones prove to be mightily strong.

Boutique, hipster coffees are all the rage these days, with coffee houses popping up all over the city. And coffee can take a ton of forms - flat black, cappuccino, caffe Americano, latte, cafe cubano, macchiato, etc. 

Even at your nearest Starbucks, you get an ever-changing assortment of coffee, ranging from a simple Three Region Blend to a complicated mocha peppermint pumpkin latte ice blend.

Strong, sharp lines help create the Ciaz's dynamic silhouette

Personally, I'm not big on these 'Finest Arabica Bean' specialty coffees. Call me uncultured and basic, but I much prefer my simple and straightforward kopi peng. It's not fancy and it may not be particularly complex flavour-wise, but it is mightily dependable and gets the job done, allowing me to start each morning properly. And I quite like how it tastes, to be honest. 

And in many ways, the all new Suzuki Ciaz is like a cup of kopi peng. It most definitely isn't fancy or exotic, but it exemplifies simplicity and functionality, and is an ever-reliable daily car that won't disappoint you. 


Exterior


It has been quite awhile since Suzuki has offered a compact sedan, the last one being the SX4. The Ciaz is an all new four-door sedan that the brand hopes will emulate the wild success of the Suzuki Swift. It is a sleek and stylish-looking sedan, and the strong shoulder line that runs along the length of the car definitely gives it a sense of presence and dynamism.

The Ciaz also comes with an exclusive RS bodykit, which includes enhancements like front, side and rear underbody spoilers, boot lid spoiler and the 'RS' emblem. While the additional kit may not be immediately noticeable (especially on our single-tone test car), it does give the car a sharper and more distinct look.
