Maruti Suzuki Celerio Variants Compared – Shortlist the Suitable Hatchback Trim

Having trouble in shortlisting the right variant of new Maruti Suzuki Celerio? Read this Celerio variants’ comparison to find out the most suitable variant for yourself.

Maruti Suzuki has been pioneering the hatchback segment for decades in the Indian car market now. They understand the needs and wants of the customers and build a product that would fulfil those needs. Maruti Suzuki Celerio has been one such offering that was introduced with the AGS system in India for the common man. This was its USP back in the day and since then, it took off. However, when compared to other hatchbacks in the Maruti line-up, it did not sell much. On the other hand, when compared to the sales of other automakers in the same segment, it was matching them. There is an all-new version of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and if you are planning to buy it, continue reading this post and we will assist you in your decision.

Engine Specifications

Maruti Suzuki Celerio

Variants Engine Transmission Power (bhp) Torque (Nm)
LXI 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed M 65 89
VXI 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed M 65 89
ZXI 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed M 65 89
VXI AMT 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed AMT 65 89
ZXI AMT 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed AMT 65 89
ZXI Plus 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed M 65 89
ZXI Plus AMT 1.0-litre Petrol 5-Speed AMT 65 89

 

As one can derive from the above table, Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes with a single naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 65 bhp and 89 nm of torque. The power might not look sufficient on paper but in real world conditions, the vehicle drives nicely. It is fairly peppy to drive in the city and has good fuel economy figures. Moreover, it can also be taken out for occasional highway runs. However, Maruti should have kept the 1.2-litre engine as an option in this car as well.

Price List

Variants Price (ex-showroom)
LXI Rs 4.99 Lakhs
VXI Rs 5.63 Lakhs
ZXI Rs 5.94 Lakhs
VXI AMT Rs 6.13 Lakhs
ZXI AMT Rs 6.44 Lakhs
ZXI Plus Rs 6.44 Lakhs
ZXI Plus AMT Rs 6.94 Lakhs

 

The price range for the Maruti Suzuki Celerio starts at a point where it was expected to be. The price bracket is pretty reasonable and will not be heavy on the pocket. Moreover, potential buyers will see this as a great first car and can also be purchased as a family car for people who do not have more than four members.

Safety Features

ABS With EBD Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Central Locking No Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Airbags 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
Adjustable Seats Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Hill Assist No No No Yes Yes No Yes

 

It becomes clear from the table that there are not many safety features on offer for the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. It misses out on ISOFIX child seat mounts which could have been included in the top variant at least. Maruti Suzuki should rectify this and include more safety kits for the Celerio.

Convenience Improving Features

In a similar fashion, there are not many comfort and convenience features on offer for the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. The base variant misses out on everything which should not be the case. Moreover, it does not have automatic climate control, cruise control and rear camera which are some essential features today. Maruti Suzuki should update these features even if it increases the price a bit.

Interior and Connectivity

Maruti Suzuki Celerio has just about adequate interior and communication features. It misses out on leather upholstery and the base and middle variants have absolutely no kit. This is something that Maruti Suzuki should look after because people with a tight budget would go for the base or middle trims. If they do not provide enough features, then the potential customers would switch brands.

Conclusion

Maruti Suzuki Celerio is a hatchback that comes with a single naturally aspirated petrol motor. It has recently been updated and comes with a fresh new exterior and interior. The performance of the engine is satisfactory in the city and can also be used for occasional highway runs. Moreover, this engine provides good fuel economy figures as well which will be easy on the pockets for many owners. From the above comparison, the most value for money trims are ZXI and ZXI AMT. These trims get almost all the features that the top variants possess but at a lower price.
