Maruti Celerio Highlights

Maruti Celerio Price: Maruti Celerio prices start at Rs. 4.26 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 5.43 lakh. Maruti Celerio is available in 12 variants and 6 colours.
Celerio Engine and Specifications: 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 Celerio Variants

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.

Maruti Celerio Latest Updates

In tune with the government's recent reduction of corporate tax rate, Maruti Suzuki has slashed the prices of all variants of Celerio by Rs 5000.

If you are in the market for a 1.0-litre hatchback but don't like the way the WagonR looks, Maruti has the Celerio for you. With a more conventional hatchback styling, the Celerio essentially offers you the same features as the WagonR, with a few cherries on top. Over the WagonR's kit, you get audio and call controls on the steering wheel, Bluetooth enabled music system and a height adjustable driver's seat. But, you do not get projector headlamps, which are available in the top variant of the WagonR. The 1.0-litre engine here is shared with the WagonR and the Alto K10 and makes 68PS of power and 90Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual and an optional AMT transmission. Claimed efficiency stands at 23.10kmpl, which is more than the WagonR. But, if you are interested in the Celerio, do have a look at the Celerio X.

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

Q. How is Maruti Celerio automatic car?
  • 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. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago

  • 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. : By Zigwheels | 10 months ago

  • Mileage exceptional. Build and paint very poor as usual for all Maruti vehicles. Maruti gives good features in all Vxi models at compatively cheaper price sacrificing build and paint qualities. : By Valentine | 1 month ago
  • The only one I see is that you do not have baggage space in the CNG variant. After using this vehicle for four years+, I do not see any demerit, be it mileage or maintenance. : By Sachin | 3 weeks ago
  • Celerio is a very user friendly car. Its dependable (at least till now). Daily city driving, yes, really worth it. But the car lacks power, you'd feel it once fully loaded, with AC on. Also the highway lane changes, this car staggers. My average mileage, with AC on mostly, City 18, Highway 21. : By Saptashwa | 1 year ago

Q. Is the car suitable for a person having height of 6 ft - Celerio?
  • Maruti Suzuki Celerio has a decent leg space. The driver’s seat on the top-spec ZXi (O) variant gets a healthy range for adjusting reach as well as height. Coupled with the rake adjustable steering, and we could get into comfortable driving position relatively easily. There’s adequate support for short trips, but we would have liked slightly more bolstering for the lower back and under thigh for the longer journeys. We would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts.

  • Hi, Even I am 6 feet tall and I drive the car and it's quite comfortable. I suggest you test drive the car and that shall answer your query. Overall the car is pretty good. Thanks : By Nikhil | 1 year ago
  • Yes he will feel comfortable when he drive it : By Mehra | 6 days ago

    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.
