  • Most Fuel Efficient Hatchback In India

    The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the most fuel efficient hatchback in the Indian market. It comes with a claimed fuel efficiency of 26.7kmpl with the petrol engine. If you choose the CNG option, the Celerio offers a claimed fuel efficiency of 35.60kmpkg, making it the most fuel-efficient CNG car in the market.

  • Fairly Large Dimensions And Good Ground Clearance

    The Celerio is longer and wider than the Maruti Suzuki Wagon-R. In addition to that, it also gets a bigger wheelbase of 2435mm and more ground clearance of 170mm over the Wagon-R. In addition to that, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio beats the Hyundai Santro in every dimension, save for the height.

  • Impressive After-Sales Support And Resale Value

    After-sales service is the backbone of Maruti Suzuki in India. The Celerio enjoys a reassuring after-sales network and it is very easy to find a qualified technician for Maruti Suzuki cars even in remote locations. In addition to that, the Celerio, being a popular model, also enjoys higher resale value with minimal depreciation.

  • Choice Of 1.0L Manual, AMT And CNG Options

    The Celerio comes with three powertrain options — a 1.0L normal petrol manual, a 1.0L normal petrol AMT and a 1.0L normal petrol CNG. All engine options offer class-leading fuel efficiency and a good mix of driveability and refinement as well.

  • Simple Variant Structure Is Easy To Understand

    Maruti Suzuki have retained their variant nomenclature over the years for their Arena range of cars. The Celerio comes in Lxi, Vxi, Zxi and Zxi+ variants. Our top recommended variant out of the four is the Zxi as it offers a right balance of useful features and affordability.

  • CNG Not Available With The Zxi Variant

    Maruti Suzuki offer the Celerio CNG with the 1.0L Vxi variant only. The Zxi variant, which is the most value for money variant of the Celerio, doesn’t come with the CNG option. Its rivals like the Tata Tiago offer the CNG option in the fully-loaded XZ trim.

  • More Powerful And Larger Tata Tiago Is Closely Priced

    The Tata Tiago isn’t a direct competitor to the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. However, despite having a bigger petrol engine and larger dimensions, the Tiago is closely priced to the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. In addition to that, the Tiago comes with a reassuring safety rating of 4 stars from Global NCAP. On the other hand, GNCAP are yet to crash test the new Celerio.

  • Missing Features And Polarising Design

    The new Celerio lacks some basic features like adjustable headrests and reverse parking camera. At its price point, we would have also liked to see a front centre armrest but that is missing too. That said, the bubbly design of the new Celerio may not attract all the buyers and some may find its design polarising.
