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.

Q. Does Maruti Suzuki Celerio has any transmission problems ?
  • I have a Celerio VXI which was bought in September 2014 and has covered around 82,000 Kilometers. I was on a holiday trip to Kerala this December (30-12-2021). The car broke down in the middle of the highway and had to be towed to the nearest Maruti Service station. I had my family with me and the car broke down in the night. It was a drastic experience and after one day of inspection the mechanics in the service station told that the I had to replace the TCM which would cost around 72K. I feel that it is a manufacturing issue and needs to be addressed byMaruti. The Service station people was annoyed with my questions as they believe that driving 80,000 Kilometers in 7 years itself is a big achievement for Celerio. My advice is to not go for the Celerio AMT. My car is still in the workshop and I had to get a taxi to get back to Kerala. What a waste of time, energy, money and the belief in Maruti vehicles.
  • Maruthi Celerio AMT has got a serious problem. The TCM unit that controls the auto transmission will not function at some point in time. After driving 1 lakh KM, my car got to break down in the middle of the road, Maruthi took 2 months of time to diagnose and confirm the TCM unit needs replacement, the cost of the TCM unit is 70k. Maruthi says it's a common issue and be thankful as your vehicle survived for 1 Lakh KM. I have decided to fight against Maruthi for selling such manufacturing defected vehicles.
  • Yes, the TCM unit that takes care of the auto transmission has to be replaced at some point in time. I have driven 1 lakh KM and now I'm facing this issue. The Service center people took a very long time to diagnose the issue and concluded the TCM unit that costs 70k has to be replaced. I'm currently exploring legal possibilities to handle this issue.

Q. I want to change gear box from mannul to auto can I change it will how much coming cost - Celerio?
  • Yes you can swap manual transmission with automatic transmission which is AMT gearbox but will definitely cost you about 50k rupees to nearly or even over 1 lac rupees though swapping transmission in a car wont bring any complications to the car but in india there are very few qualified personnel who can do this job with perfection
  • I am not giving advice to change,it will coat you and I think manual is simply best,
  • Waist of money

    Creep function

    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.

    Rear seats

    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

    Grill +crack

    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.

    Front view

    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.

    Butter smooth

    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.
