Maruti Suzuki Celerio is offered with a petrol and a CNG option to cater to the changing needs of the Indian car market. Both the setups are extremely frugal with the CNG providing exceptional value when compared to the rising prices of petrol. The power figures from the petrol engine are respectable for a hatchback and the car feels fairly peppy to drive around town but a bit strained out on the highway. Performance from the CNG is smooth and refined with an obvious dip in power when compared to the petrol counterpart.

Maruti Suzuki has equipped the Celerio with just about adequate safety features which are expected from a car at this price point. In terms of safety, the most value for money variants are VXI (O) and VXI AMT (O). These variants have almost sufficient safety features at a lower price than other variants.

Celerio does not come with a lot of comforts inducing features inside the cabin. Maruti Suzuki has only provided the bare minimum and expected people to be satisfied with it. The base variant does not even get power windows which is a disappointing omission. In terms of convenience features, ZXI and ZXI AMT are the variants to choose.

Interior and Entertainment

As you can derive from the table above, Maruti Suzuki has done a poor job in equipping the Celerio with entertainment features. It is shocking to see that so many of the lower variants do not get the bare minimum and the top variants are glorified for getting the bare minimum. When considering this aspect, you should go for the top variants to extract the maximum interior leisure and entertainment.

Conclusion

Maruti Suzuki Celerio is a great option for families who need a small hatchback to perform city duties and want to use it as their secondary vehicle. It comes with frugal and smooth engine options which are fairly peppy to drive in the city. In terms of the variant comparison, the most value for money variants are ZXI and ZXI AMT as they get the most kit for a reasonable price. If you are planning to buy a hatchback around the same price bracket, then do check out the Maruti Suzuki Celerio.
