Editorial Test Drive Review of Maruti Celerio


Maruti Celerio 3/4 Front View

The Maruti Celerio is a step-up from both the A-Star and the Estilo hatchback. Having lost ground in this segment to other rivals, the Celerio is Maruti's weapon to regain the lost glory. Ofcourse it will also eat into the sales of the Wagon R but on the whole, it will help Maruti gain traction in the Rs 4-5 lac hatchback category.

At 3600mm in length, 1600mm in width and 1560mm in height, the Celerio is 100mm longer and 70mm taller than the A-Star. Its wheelbase is also 65mm longer than both the A-Star and the Estilo - this has in turn allowed Maruti to liberate more room on the inside which is now comparable to cars like the Honda Brio.

The Celerio also benefits from a bigger boot (235 litres as compared to 212 for Estilo and a mere 129 for the A-Star). On the engine front, the Celerio comes with the same 1.0-litre K10 engine though the overall NVH levels have been worked upon a lot. At 68PS of power and 89Nm of torque, the light weight Celerio has brisk performance for both city and highway use. True to most Maruti offerings, the Celerio excels on the fuel economy front as well with a rated economy of 23.1kmpl.
Maruti will also be offering a new automated transmission on the Celerio and will also make it the most affordable automatic in India.

The Celerio will be sold in a total of five versions - 3 manual and 2 automatic. Steering mounted controls, airbags and ABS are all provided as option. This grown up hatchback with a new modern design (done by Suzuki in Japan) is sure to get footfalls back into Maruti's showrooms.
A diesel engine is expected too but at a later stage.

Maruti Celerio Interiors

The interiors of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio are on par with that of other Maruti Suzuki and so are equipment levels. The entry-level LXi variant comes with power steering and air conditioning only while the car gets a fourth ZXi Optional variant packs in all the bells and whistles such as power windows, stereo with steering mounted controls, door trim fabric, driver’s seat height adjust, rear parcel shelf, electric ORVMs, tachometer and tilt steering. Interior space is adequate with lots of headroom and adequate leg room while the width of the car limits comfort for three on the rear seat.

What we like
The Maruti Celerio comes equipped with a good equipment list that adds convenience
What we don't like
Quality of materials inside the cabin of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio could have been better

A good Maruti, but not the best around
By Posted on Mar,03,04 5:38 PM

Pros Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,

Cons Average Looks,

My friend has just bought a new Celerio (AMT) version and I drove it yesterday. While my friend is very happy with the purchase due to the low cost AMT or automatic system, I still find my Wagon R a much better vehicle. For an all new car, Maruti could have made the Celerio a better looking hatchback. It has a light feel to it and space at the back is also not good for 3 people. Fuel economy is good, the same Wagon R engine is also good but it doesnt give you a very special feeling for an all new vehicle in the segment.

Maruti Suzuki Celerio with automatic gearbox
By Posted on Sep,09,05 1:28 PM

Pros Great Interiors,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,Average Performance,

I recently bought the automatic version of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and I have to say that I am very happy with the car. This new automated manual transmission is a good system to be implemented. Because it is essentially the manual gearbox, it has allowed the company to price the automatic version of the car more affordably as compared to the conventional price gap between automatic versions of other cars. The car drives relatively well, the only glitch of the new gearbox is sudden jolts during gearchanges that occur sometimes. The engine of the Maruti Celerio is good and has adequate performance with good fuel economy. And the fact that the automatic version of the Celerio is as fuel efficient as the manual model, only makes the Celerio automatic an even more attractive proposition. The Maruti Suzuki Celerio is also a comfortable car to be in. There is plenty of cabin space and the seats are large and offer generous comfort. It can seat five people in comfort. The boot is also big and a couple of soft bags can be fitted in comfortably. The boot can also be opened conveniently with the handle located on the outside. I have the VXi model of the Maruti Celerio and while it offers reasonable equipment, it would have been even better if there was the option of a top ZXi automatic model of the car.

Pros ,ALL

Cons ,all

I have booked for Celeraio zxi Blue on 6th of february 2014 on the day of Launching with Ms.Garuda Autocraft Pvt., Ltd., Bangalore. It is unfortunate the CAR is not delivered and I suspect whether it is being manufactured or not. In case it is under production still how many months it will take for delivery. without using the car no one can give review. Hope to get an replay from you

And indeed, I am always amazed with your very good ideas you give. Selected two points in this post are in fact the very best we have ever had.

A decent car
By Posted on Mar,03,14 5:41 PM

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,

Went to test drive the car. The car styling is not that great i would say but it is fair enough. There are very less interior features . Music system is not present in versions below Zxi. The car is provided with much space inside and seat also gives adequate comfort. Dashboard of the car is decent however has a build quality isn't that great. The automatic drive or auto gear shift that the company boasts about is basically shifting the gears without the clutch that of-course will offer good comfort when riding in traffic and you will not have to stress you leg much. Adding this feature the car goes ahead from its competitors. Overall the car is decent and a value for money car.
