Maruti Celerio Highlights
Maruti Celerio was launched as a replacement of A-star and though initial market response wasn’t very enthusiastic, the Celerio has now picked the pace and been selling in good numbers. The smart, urban, and compact design of this Maruti makes it ideal for the congested roads of our cities and thanks to the option of automated manual transmission (AMT), the Celerio is ultra-comfortable to steer too. The small footprints of the car don’t really reveals the cavernous space inside the cabin which is really a pleasant surprise; especially the large rear seat space is really admirable. In addition to AMT, Celerio is available with 5-speed manual transmission which sends the drive from 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder K-series 68PS/90Nm motor to the front wheels of the car. With a sticker price between Rs 4.16-5.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Celerio takes on the rivals like the Tata Tiago, Renault Kwid 1.0, Datsun Go among others.
The Maruti Suzuki Celerio is currently offered with only one engine: a 998cc, 3-cylinder petrol/CNG which develops 68PS of maximum power and 90Nm of torque. This engine can be paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT), the mileage figures for both are quite similar. The Celerio use to be offered with an ultra-efficient 793cc, 2-cylinder diesel engine too, but that has been discontinued due to issues with refinement.
Maruti Suzuki offers 14 variants of the Celerio in India. The base LXI is priced at Rs 4.03 lakh, while the top-of-the-line ZXI AMT (O) is priced at Rs 5.24 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. For those looking for the most cost-efficient variant, the VXI Green with CNG makes the most sense. The convenience of an AMT is offered from the LXI variant onwards, making it a very affordable option for the city. We recommend the LXI (O) AGS as it also gets safety features like dual front airbags and ABS.
Celerio Exterior and Interior
The Maruti Suzuki Celerio looks like a grown up version of the Alto 800 and there is a good reason for that. The Celerio is actually the next-gen Alto, sold as such in many international markets. As with many entry-level Maruti cars, the Celerio is understated so as to appeal to as many people as possible, which also means that it is not very exciting to look at. Highlights include the large headlamps, twin-slat chrome grille, chrome surround for the fog lamps housing, and a sculpted rear bumper.
The understated design continues on the inside too. Cost cutting measures like the integrated headrests on the front seats make the interior feel less inviting, but the rest of the design is good. Luggage space is compromised for a good passenger space, even taller rear passengers won't feel the pinch in the Celerio. Storage spaces around the cabin are not as many as the competition.
Maruti Celerio Competitors
Tata Tiago : This is the newest car in this class and offers more features for the price without any compromise on space and quality. The Tiago has the best sound system in this segment and also gets smartphone-linked functions for the infotainment system. Petrol-AMT variants add to its appeal as a city-centric family hatchback.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR: More than half-a-decade old and the WagonR continues to go strong. It offers the best combination of space, mileage, reliability and cost in this segment with two different designs. Those not happy with the more sedate design of the 'blue-eyed-boy' WagonR can choose to buy the VXI+ variants which offer more style with features like projector headlamps and alloy wheels.
Datsun Go Plus : The Datsun Go Plus : is the stretched version of the Go hatchback and offers the most space in this price range. It is also powered by a fun 1.2-litre engine, but the Go Plus suffers in terms of quality and safety.
The Celerio, though being the first car to introduce Indians to the concept of affordable automatic cars, has not been able to attract enough people, thanks to tough competition from better looking, better-equipped cars, priced lower and higher than it. It is not a bad car per se, but the multitude of options in the market don't help it stand out.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Celerio
- The Celerio is equipped with an automated manual transmission. There are just two pedals, and the operation is like a conventional automatic vehicle. Slot the gear lever in ‘Drive’ (D), let go of the brakes and the car creeps forward. The operation of the clutch, is controlled by a hydraulic actuator - thereby relieving your left leg. The AMT on the litte Maruti isn’t the most polished units around; there are slight jerks when the car upshifts or downshifts. That said, they can be easily overlooked during daily commutes. You can also take charge of the gears yourself by shifting it into manual (M) mode. Like most Marutis, the suspension is on the softer side in the Celerio. This lets it absorb the bumps and undulations on the road fairly easily. However, drive over the bigger and badder potholes, and the thuds will be transferred to the cabin. The steering is nice and light and weighs up well as the speeds progress.

- On a budget and in the market for an automatic, you just don’t have another option to choose from. It also delivers well on space and comfort and is fun to drive as a nimble hatchback. Above all, it delivers better mileage than its manual counterpart. The AMT makes driving in our perennially clogged city roads easier for the driver. The Celerio AMT is the need of the hour for an urban Indian commuter and a decent overall car otherwise.
- Not sure, But petrol has AGS gear box also known as automatic c*m manual gear box, its nice to drive within city limits, unless you master the gear box for quite sometime, you got to get used to it , after that its spanking fast car, when you know exactly at what gear the car changes and at what situation of your leg pressing against the accelerator
- It is better to use petrol because CNG may be efficient and eco friendly but it is not public yet
- You can get factory fitted cng in celario tour H2,vxi models.That comes in manual transmission.
- Yes, there are 2 variants in CNG. Celerio CNG VXI MT( www.zigwheels.com/newcars/Maruti-Suzuki/Celerio/cng-vxi-mt ) and Celerio CNG VXI Optional( www.zigwheels.com/newcars/Maruti-Suzuki/Celerio/cng-vxi-optional )
- Yes there is but taking Petrol is better in emergencies when you have to fill your tank for an emergency
- Yes it's the favourite if uber and old taxi owners.
- Front tyres 36ps and back tyres 33ps. Aslo don't forget to rotate the tyres during service.
- It's written in the manual...also on sides of door inner sides..
- Engine number is given on B pillar...open driverside door you can see it on the B or side pillar on its middle.. so it's a VIN number...an 11 digit numberlast two letters depicts year of make...some times it will be zero...Any way open the bonnet see the place right side in front...when you decode last letter L means 2020K is 2019..Jan is 1 ..like March is 3....... L is most important.
- You see if u are driving in saddarbazar,chandni chowk,cannought circle,shadra,u will get around 15 in petrol and 23-25 in cng...otherlittle long drive grater kailash.akbar rd.barakhamba,dhaulakua,gaugaon will give you17 to18 and in cng25-27
- Celerio has very good mileage even city between 13-17 depending on driving and traffic.
- I get an average of 17.5 in petrol. An no other problem ao far

Bought AMT for city driving comfort and also for once a month long drive. Not happy with Celerio's AMT - It gives lot of knocking compared to any AT car (maybe that's a problem with all AMTs). Also the shock absorbers of Celerio is not good to give you a comfortable drive, so it gives lot of jerks at back seat. The auto gear shift too takes lot of trouble when you really raise the car in case you are in a hurry and want to rush. e.g. if you raise it from 1st gear, it would go to 2nd gear probably when you cross 40 km/hr. So basically its not smart. But it a good vehicle for city driving.
For the beginers,daily commute, or female drivers just go to choose celerio is best car and k10 engine is insufficient power to drive in highway but in city driving power was adequate...inside the cabin plastics materials are average quality...if you go to top varient its features good..buy top varient model better (zxi (O))good thing is less maintenance, adequate cabin room for 5 passangers, comfort travelling, not much body rolling of passengers due to its shock observes good.
The celerio is such an awesome commuting car, i also use it for touring from home city to working city on weekends, performance is also good, for being such an economic car, my one and only hope is that maruthi will raise their bar on safety , because each and everyday people die due to unsafe cars, cars being poor quality in terms of safety. really they have to consider people as their family and build cars, otherwise i am happy about the driving experience
Suspension is not so Good. A/c cooling coil failed one day after warranty expired and company did not approve. Clutch Judder continues even after Clutch replacement. Hord Pad cracked Company says its normal. Pickup is very poor. Good car for city as I have taken AMT Zx version average in petol is14/15 kmpl with a/c in City.MRF tyres have good life just crossed 80,000 kms in 4 years. RSA service is poor. Exide reaches before Maruti Road side Assistance.
कंपनी माइलेज अधिक बता करके सिर्फ लूट रही है सर्विसिंग में दीप मोटर्स इलाहाबाद में कस्टमर के साथ कोई उचित सलाह नहीं दी जाती और ना ही बहुत अच्छा कार्य किया जाता है
very good car ..i love it car soo much ..reallly i appreciate my car
excellent work with celerio but safety not good but not bad okk
Your family car is good for you read message don't think
celerio has not body roll like wagon r and has more mileage also
overall very good experience with my Car.
