Editor's View of Maruti Celerio

  • Upside

    Engine and transmission, automatic option, maruti service support, price

  • Downside

    Bland design

  • Our Verdict

    The Celerio might just set the charts on fire with its Automatic Manual Transmission. In our opinion, Maruti have another winner on the cards here


Celerio Detailed Review

The world is moving towards smaller capacity engines that offer similar outputs to their larger capacity predecessors. This especially is true among petrol engines, but in diesels, the gains haven’t been as prominent. Diesels however have shown quantum leaps on the refinement and efficiency front and India is just about getting the taste of that in mass segment cars. The Honda City and Maruti Ciaz are prime examples. But none have dared to or needed to build a pint sized engine that’s sole purpose will be to be as cheap to buy as to run.

Sure there are the Hyundai Grand i10 and Chevrolet Beat 3-cylinder diesels that have been the entry point to diesels in India but could they have gone further and would that have been feasible to develop are questions Maruti Suzuki has answered with this new 793cc 2-cylinder engine. The Celerio is the first car from the Maruti stable to get this engine and we’ve taken it for a quick spin to find out if anything but underwhelms us.

We’ve reviewed the Celerio before so if you want to know about our opinions on its design, interior and features, please click here

Maruti Suzuki Celerio diesel engine shot

Engine and performance Rating_3.0_rating

Yes going by the facts, the Celerio diesel can be a bit of a dampener. Two cylinders, 793cc, 47.6PS of power at a fairly low 3,500rpm and 125Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. But don’t write it off yet. The Celerio is a light car, about 60kg lighter than its competition, and when it goes down to such small capacity engines, every kilo matters. The engine itself is an all-aluminium block with a turbo’s diameter the size of a few fingers. Performance isn’t anywhere close to brisk, but adequate to keep pace with traffic, and a downshift will help you in that overtake.



Maruti Suzuki Celerio diesel rear action

A weak bottom end is expected with just 125Nm of peak torque available at a fairly high 2,000 rpm but the way around it is keeping the engine in its midrange. The engine isn’t as vibey and noise inside the cabin is well-curtailed to give you a pleasant drive most of the time. Towards the top of the rev band though above 3,000rpm, as the tiny two-pot begins to shriek is when you will find the Celerio a bit unpleasant. The shift quality is good though, clean and quick slots with a clutch that’s a bit heavy but not jumpy.

All things said, the Celerio diesel is a car for the office commute for two. Any more passengers or luggage loaded and the engine will feel strained and out of breath to lug the extra weight.

Ride, handling and ease of driving Rating_4.0_rating

The suspension is soft enough to iron out road imperfections but the light car that it is, allows Maruti to keep the tune stiff enough for the Celerio to feel composed at high speeds. You don’t feel as nervous north of 100kmph in the Celerio as you would in an i10. The Celerio is a predictable handler too, fun to chuck around corners when you pick up the pace but the tyres could have offered more grip, especially in the diesel as there is more weight up front.

It is a given that a Maruti has to be an easy car to use in the city, and with the Celerio it’s no different. Light steering and good visibility out of the cabin coupled with nearly straight lined sides make for some precision driving when you are weaving through traffic. If there is one drawback in the diesel, it’s the lack of low end punch.

Fuel Economy and price Rating_5.0_rating

If there’s one thing Maruti Suzuki wants to excel at, it is fuel efficiency. This engine has been developed with the sole purpose to provide headline worthy economy figures and as of now, Maruti achieves that. With an ARAI certified mileage of 27.62kmpl, the Celerio is the most efficient diesel car in India. In the real world too, expect over 20kmpl on a highway run and between 18-20kmpl in city use.

The Celerio is also the most affordable diesel car in India, about Rs 60,000 cheaper than the Beat and Rs 1 lakh cheaper than the Grand i10 in top trim. That’s a new baseline for diesels other carmakers will find hard to beat.

Verdict Rating_3.5_rating

One tends to make preconceived notions about things that are out of the ordinary. A properly functional two cylinder diesel engine with a more than acceptable gearbox and efficiency that would impress the worst of misers, all clubbed together in one package, is something I had not expected out of the Celerio diesel. For buyers on a shoestring budget doing fairly long distances in the city on a daily basis, the Celerio diesel is ideal. It’s not your highway car or the car to buy if you can stretch your budget by Rs 50,000-1 lakh, but at its price point, the Celerio diesel does make a solid case for efficient motoring.

    Our Datsun Go completed its 4.5 years in January 2019,and we were quite bored with the old car.We were looking for a compact automatic car which could also be used by the ladies in the house.We zeroed in on the smallest automatic available in the Indian market...Alto K 10 AMT. The Maruti guys were called home and we did the booking for Alto K10 AMT.The research was still going on weighing the pros and cons.It was always on the back of my mind that there will be no premium feature even in the top trim.We still had some time so I searched for the next small thing which was Celerio.Now the features which distinguish it from tiny Alto are R 14 tyres, Anti lock braking system (ABS) ,Rear Wiper , all four power windows and bigger cabin which means comfortable seating and storage spaces.All this came at a price of just 1.5 lacs over the earlier choice so we immediately called the dealer and asked him if we could change our selection, and he was more than happy and called this as a fine decision making by us.Now on the delivery day I bargained for the leather steering cover and the leather seat covers which took little extra time in the handover but it was worth.The cabin is quieter, air conditioning is comfortable even in very high ambient temperature conditions.Music system is awesome with bluetooth connectivity , 4 speakers and steering mounted audio controls.Gear shifts in amt mode are smooth.Torque and power are good enough for the size of the car.Ground clearance and suspension is good to take any terrain.ABS allows very good short distance braking.Front , rear window wipers and defogger provides an efficient system to tackle heavy weather be it rain,dust or cold.Talking about more premium features it has automatic speed sensing door locks, seat belt warning for driver and front passenger, high speed warnings, door ajar warning, automatic cabin light, creep function which is disabled if there is an ajar door.For safety there are 2 airbags in front as opposed to only 1 in the The Alto K10 top trim.It's been a little over 1 year and I am still amazed with the choice I made.Overall it is a thrilling yet economical option.Don't think twice just go for it.

    Purchased for city commute and occasional highway drive because it had better looks than Wagon-r. On petrol the mileage in city is around 18-20 and on highway 21-23(again depends on driving style). But in CNG the mileage in city is 22-25 and on highway its around 26-30(speed must be in between 80-100). Interior is average, not very basic not too fancy. Gets 2 airbags but lacks high speed stability due to less kurb weight. Engine performs really well, there is lag in the bottom end but really picks up pace after 3000rpm. I drove it at around 150kmph on petrol and 130kmph on CNG. Reliability of engine is good, doesnt burn much oil even if the car is on CNG mode for months(good practice is to drive it on pertol for 15-20km once a week). Speaking of built quality, its the same as expected from a maruti car. It rattles and squeaks on bad roads but is silent on good roads. Braking is not good nor bad but decent and ABS works well(only engages on places it should). Comfort too is decent for front as well as rear passengers compared to Wagon-r as the rear seats in celerio are not upright(not in kind of bench format). One can easily cover 350+kms without a break. Gearbox too is slick shifting and perfectly matches with the rev happy k10B engine(just judders a bit in reverse gear). Talking about sales and services the my celerio VXI(optional) varient costed me 5.71lakh (18thousand extra for passenger side airbag and ABS which is now mandatory in every car). Sales are good as parts and service stations are available in almost every city of India. The first major paid service costed me 5,516rs after 13000km(which is not bad as oil, oil filter, cabin air filter, intake filter, throttle body cleaning, replacing all spark plugs, wheel alignment and balancing, etc was done). According to me its better alternative than Wangon-r in all aspects. Thank you

    IT WILL NOT GIVE YOU MILEAGE BECAUSE I BOUGHT IT DUE TO MILEAGE AND ALSO TRY TO BUY MANUAL OVER AMT.I AM GETTING MILEAGE OF 14,15 IN CITY AND 18,19 ON HIGHWAY.YOU'LL HAVE TO BE REALLY LIGHT ON FOOT TO GET MILEAGE.Try to go for more powerful car LIKE SWIFT PETROL OR WAGONR 1.2 PETROL(BODY IS THERE).If you're looking for a car in which you get instant acceleration.Good performance than it not for you.Once at speed of 30 my car hit ford Figo (nothing happened to it) but my front bumper came out with several cracks and fender bend.Once again a dog instantly came in infront of my car at speed of 60 kmh and then it hit him a little and my grill +crack on bumper +fog lamp position and bumper was lowered by that.Not satisfied with this car at all.After this I am buying another but not Maruti at all very bad build quality.Service experience is all really bad and they don't listen to you.

    A second class family car with basic features.In this segment its best to get.But when it comes to build quality celerio is outperforms.I like the way it drives.Owner since 2016 manual transmission.Petrol variant.Abs brake and airbags are available at the starting 555k bugs.Performance wise this is a 1.0 litre engine and the output is decent as a family drive or long tour.Getting approx 21 kmpl is quite efficient.Enjoy those smooth driving with easy driving technology by the amt system.No lagging and tiredness on long drive.Feels relaxed after miles.Thanks to the better seating posture and comfort interior platform.The biggest thing is that interior.It is well crafted to enjoy the views and drives.All power windows and stereo setup is beautiful.Cealing is good and the bonnet is wide.But the front view is easy to watch.

    About Celerio X zxi: 1. Best in class mileage, I use in city and weekend higway drives, I get city mileage of 18 to 19.2kmpl and in highway average 20.5 to 21.4 (speed below 90kmph)2. Cost: Service cost after all the free services, they charge 4k (including1500/- for engine oil too)3. Comfortable: Comfortable for 4 heavy people. and the drive is butter smooth.4. Power: Drive is butter smooth, but it lacks power for immediate pickup.5. Speed: As I tested its top speed till 165kmph, but feeling uncontrolled and scary after 145kmph, untill then it looks planted.Overall, best city and long drive car for 5 people. But power does not come immediately, it takes time when car is fully loaded.

Q. WHICH CAR IS BEST NEW WAGON R CNG OR CELERIO?
  • 1. Celerio is the best choice, as it has good body balance compared to Wagon R 2. Celerio has good stability which is most important, but Wagon R lacks stability due to more height. 3.Celerio interior looks spacious, but Wagon R exterior looks huge like a school van. Finally its your choice, go for petrol version. In CNG version, you may get good mileage, but lacks more power
  • Depends on your usage celario stands high in stability and mileage.Wagon r had got good space but initial pick up is low. so celerio cng is a better choice. I agree to the view petrol wagon r is better than a petrol celario.Are we off topic?
  • You should try wagonR but wagonR being new you might not have model option in cng as much as you have in celerio. You can check with your requirements and pick your car. 1.0 is same for bothWagonR is alot more spacious then celerio

Q. What is the TRUE mileage we will get in HIGHWAY and City for maruti celerio VXi (Optional) CNG version, as I am very concerned about Mileage
  • This is very good and economical city car, provided you need to travel between point A to point B. Within a city like Mumbai, you can expect 27-28 Kmpl. If you are looking to travel long distances, on National/State Highways, then you can expect 30-32 Kmpl. Obviously all this depends on the speed and way you drive your car. I am sharing these statistics after using my Celerio VXI CNG for fours years.
  • I own Celerio vxi manual for 5 years now on highway I get more than 24 kmpl if the highway is smooth and has less traffic. Only yesterday i drove at 80/90 speed and my meter was showing 22-27. Unbelievable, isn't it? But it's true. The only problem is poor build up and thin paint. In case of accident, only God csn help.
  • Cng really gives above 30kmperlitreif you fully fill a tank ...400rs it will run for 250plus10km in high range!!!!.city above 20kmperlitre petrol ..highway near 25kmper litre.
