About Maruti Suzuki Celerio

Latest Update

  • Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, Celerio, S-Presso Dream Edition launched at ₹4.99 Lakh
  • Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, Celerio, S-Presso Dream Limited Edition launch this month
  • Maruti Suzuki Celerio

    The Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the car model that first introduced AMT to the Indian market. The 3D Organic Sculpted Design of the All-New Celerio is invigorating to the senses and appears updated from every perspective, whether it's the Radiant Front Grille with Sharp Chrome Accents, Droplet-Style Tail Lamps, or 15-inch Black Alloy Wheels. The energising and spacious cabin, complete with a contemporary dashboard design, adds excitement to the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. The Maruti hatchback is available with a manual transmission, an automatic transmission, or a CNG transmission.

    Car Exteriors:

    As far as the exterior is concerned, due to the large bumper with space for fog lamps, bold clear-lens headlamps, and a chrome grille with the Suzuki insignia, the Celerio's front fascia has a bold and expansive appearance. The black front grille is positioned in such a way that airflow is unrestricted and the shapes have been added from the top of the rear side to the front fender, drawing a lot of attention to the side profile.

    Cabin comfort and interior:

    Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes with dual-tone (black/beige) seat upholstery, Bluetooth equipped music system, electrically adjustable ORVMs, spacious legroom and headroom. The instrument cluster is identical to the previous generation, the seat cushioning looks comfortable, and the back seat is spacious enough for three people of ordinary size. The automobile comes with a sufficient number of magazine and bottle holders.

    Engine and Speed:

    Both petrol and diesel engines are available for the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. The petrol variant is equipped with a 1.0L 3-cylinder K-series engine that delivers 68PS and 90Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine is made entirely of aluminium and is driven by an 800cc 2-cylinder engine that produces 46.7PS of maximum power and 125 Nm of peak torque. Both of these models are available with either a 5-speed manual transmission or AGS technology. With a mileage of 26 kmpl, the diesel engine is the most fuel efficient car in this segment. Whereas, the petrol engine achieves a mileage of 21 kmpl.

    Safety Features:

    Another advantage of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio is its standard safety equipment, which includes ABS with EBD, dual airbags and AGS technology.

    Maruti Suzuki Celerio Expert Review
    3.5 out of 5

    Did you know that Maruti Suzuki Celerio was first launched in 2014? Did you know that Maruti has sold nearly six lakh units of Celerio in the past seven years? Did you know that despite being a prolific seller, Celerio is still not the top sales chart buster from Maruti? Well, when a car has siblings like the Alto, WagonR, Swift and Dzire, there has to be enough - and constant  - family pressure to perform and perform better. Say hello then to the all-new 2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio, a car that builds on its own strengths while trying to find a newer connect with a younger audience.

    To check out the 2021 Celerio from Maruti Suzuki, I landed once again in the pleasant climes of Udaipur. And with the calming November sun shining on the both the car and the driver, it was time to put the latest from Maruti to an extensive test sched. Here's the complete takeway:

    Maruti Celerio: Let the looks not distract

    The new Celerio from Maruti Suzuki resembles younger sibling Alto from the front angle. Agree?

    As much as I keep repeating that looks are subjective and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, it is important to note that the exterior profile of the new Celerio is likely to invite very contrasting opinions. It is definitely younger in terms of visual cues from all angles but as veterans would perhaps say, youthful may not always mean outright beautiful.

    The outgoing Celerio had a mature, calm, conventional design from all sides and angles. It wasn't flashy, not by any standards. And yet, it looked like a practical option, visually speaking. The latest Celerio changes all of that courtesy its 3D sculpted design which is eager, too eager perhaps.

    The latest Celerio from Maruti Suzuki gets two new colour options in the form of Blue and Red. The other options are White, Silver, Grey and Brown.

    The car is now very, very rounded with a curvaceous bonnet and tail gate. There is a new front grille which is similar to what is seen on the new Swift launched earlier this year. There is a minor tweak to the way the head light units have been incorporated while the front bumper - complete with the fog light casing - has also been reworked. Oh, and there is a slight dash of chrome on the grille as well.

    Slide over to the side and the new Celerio now stands on 15-inch wheels which sport very sporty black alloys. The circular wheel arches are topped by circular character lines while there are more of these in straight lines on the side. The body-coloured side mirrors can be operated electronically while there is keyless entry feature too. Getting in and our of the car promises to be easier now because of a) a good ground clearance and b) all four doors now open slightly wider.

    The compact hatchback visual cues of the new Celerio is most evident from its side profile. Did anyone say Ignis?

    The windows remain quite large to let elements enter freely while there is a tinge of downward swoop of the roofline as it merges into the rear profile. Over at the rear, the tail light design has been reworked and so has the rear fender. While the profile still is quite conventional, complete with the Celerio lettering and Suzuki logo, the trunk door width seems to have been reduced which could be a problem if loading heavy suitcases. The lifting angle too remains rather high but the good, no great, news is that the boot space itself has now gone up to 313 litres. There's more than adequate space for a small family on a long trip - one large suitcase, one medium bag and two laptop bags.  And just in case one wants even more space, the rear seats can be folded in 60:40 ratio. Perfect!

    The 2021 Celerio has a conventional rear visual profile.

    Maruti Celerio: Cabin cuts and style

    Special thoughts to  little things make the cabin of the new Celerio a refreshing place to be in. While I have already touched upon the wider opening doors for easier in and out of the vehicle, the drive and ride height is also quite impressive considering this is still  a compact hatchback. But more on that down below because even when sitting idle, there's much update that is pleasing inside the Celerio.

    Take the dashboard layout for instance. Sharp lines and deep crevices on a black canvas is a sure-shot way of highlighting that you are inside the new and not the previous Maruti Celerio. Then there is the seven-inch infotainment screen on the top-end variant which is bright, vivid, responsive to touch and positioned well enough to cut our most reflections. The system itself isn't unique to Celerio and is the same as the one on newer-generation Maruti cars, an HQ for music, apps and even navigation. It supports wired connection to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with the phone getting a dedicated slot for storage.

    There are also storage options near the re-designed gear lever, a 12V charging point, physical dials for HVAC controls and contemporary vents - circular at the sides and vertically-oriented in the middle.

    There are also dedicated buttons under the main display and vents for front window operation, parking lights,  and locking and unlocking the doors. The buttons for the rear window operation are located next to the handbrake. Personally, I prefer door-mounted window controls but this is a minor adjustment I am ready to adapt to.

    No need to adapt to the large instrument cluster which is semi digital. It puts out information pertaining to instantaneous fuel consumption, trip details and the likes in clear numeric font.

    As for the level of comfort and refinement, the Celerio does well for a Maruti and has well-cushioned seats for all, a decent level of noise insulation and hard plastics that, well, may be hard but don't exactly appear cheap.

    Move over to the rear and there's plenty of space - considering the overall dimension of the vehicle, for two passengers while a third may not grumble much either apart from complaining about the limited feet space. A minor hump on the floor bed is a bit of a restriction for the rear passenger but at least the center console is quite far ahead. Shoulder room for three is adequate and so is the knee room and head height. The angle of the back seats are also satisfactory but under-thigh support is woefully inadequate on all seats - front and back.

    Rear seats inside the new Celerio are quite comfortable but the lack of under-thigh support is quite clear here.

    Among things I would have liked but the Celerio skips are rear charging sockets or points, rear-seat armrest and while this is a small car, I have a feeling rear AC vents could have upped the comfort factor. Not that I turned on the AC even once under the November sun.

    Maruti Celerio: Peppy drive trait retained

    At the core of the Celerio is the next generation K-Series petrol engine and the company claims much work has gone into it to help the car build on its peppy nature while offering even better fuel efficiency. How much? Well, the ARAI-certified figure stands at 26.68 kmpl.

    While there is a whole lot of mechanical jargon that would go into explaining how the new Celerio is able to extract as much from every litre of petrol, the fact that the new Celerio gets segment-first idle start-stop helps. And it is on point, especially in the minor traffic that I found on the way out from the main city of Udaipur and onto open highways.

    The Celerio continues to offer a spirited drive - whether within city limits or out on open highway stretches.

    Throughout the hunt for even more scenic spots out of Udaipur and on the national highway, it was amply clear that this car is typically Maruti in the truest sense - agile, eager and capable of balancing its nature between city traffic and on open stretches.

    First up was the variant with AGS transmission and for anyone who has driven any Maruti with it, it is a drive down familiar territory - practical in city, steady on highways, struggle uphill. That last bit is, in fact, my only persisting grouch as the 1.0-litre, naturally aspirated petrol motor needs some degree of skill to make its way up on steeper climbs. I had to repeatedly switch to manual mode and downshift to get the required thrust to negotiate the next bend. This was more noticeable especially because the transmission mostly fared well on the flat stretches just before the climb on Rayta hills. The numbers were ticked off near instantly and barring the occasional kickback, there was a clean sweep towards the 100 kmph mark.

    The Celerio has spunk and the AGS transmission fares reasonably well when pushing the car. This despite the engine grunt being quite audible.

    I would still recommend the Celerio with AGS if mountain drives are going to be very occasional escapades because within city limits, its pros completely outweigh the cons. But if you want complete control, there is always the five-speed manual transmission for the taking.

    Slick, the Celerio MT gets a move along well and is ably helped by a featherlight steering wheel that is a breeze to swing - one way or another - within city limnits. And beyond, there may not be any feedback whatsoever but the aforementioned spirit of the engine will tick off milestones like a no one's business even if there is some engine grunt that filters into the cabin when the car is being pushed. NVH and road noise levels are, however, kept well in check.

    On the flipside, the suspension on the Celerio could have been a tad softer because on less than perfect roads, there is a fair bit of jitter that continues to creep in. Other than this though, there is no complaining.

    Maruti Celerio: Verdict

    The Celerio is a safe buy, a practical purchase, a reliable option. It has always been and promises to remain so for years to come. 

    There is a clear attempt to give the new Celerio a youthful appeal which may or may not come off in terms of exterior looks but just in case the design isn't exactly to your liking, Maruti has ensured there's much more on offer to woo and wow.

    The Celerio has a whole lot of spirit and the latest edition is a consolidation of proven strengths.

    An updated cabin is a jump in the right direction, a feature-list upgrade is great and there's more space for both you and your luggage. Add to all of this that this car has a frugal engine with AGS option and the Celerio could indeed challenge not just its direct rivals but its siblings in Maruti camp too.
