Maruti Celerio Variants
Editorial Test Drive Review of Maruti Celerio
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.

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.

Thanks a lot for providing idvuinilads with a very nice opportunity to read from this blog. It is often very sweet and stuffed with a lot of fun for me and my office mates to search the blog at the least 3 times in 7 days to find out the new guidance you will have. 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.

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.

The automated gear box is a blessing. I bought the celerio 2 days after its launch. I drive around in Bangalore city and its made my drive so much more comfortable. Its easy to drive and the fact that I dont have to press the clutch is very comforting. its a small car and manages way through traffic very easy. interiors do feel a little average but am happy with my purchase.

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
