Highlights

August 19, 2014: Maruti Suzuki's new 793cc diesel engine is all set to hit the Indian market. The Celerio is the first hatchback to get 0.8-litre diesel engine and at the moment it is undergoing its final stage of testing in Japan. The Celerio and a new commercial vehicle from Suzuki will be available with this new diesel engine. Maruti Suzuki Celerio will come with three trims, LDi, VDi and ZDi. The VDi will come with an option of ABS too. This is Suzuki's first in-house developed diesel engine and it will be the smallest diesel engine in India. The 793cc diesel engine will churn about 50bhp of power and it will be coming with common rail diesel technology.

Overview

Every time we felt that Maruti Suzuki India is marginally loosing their numero uno position in the automobile industry, they have always managed to surprise the market with a new launch. Its latest offering Maruti Celerio , which was launched barely few months ago has done a tremendous job for the company in terms of sales. Under the hood, this small car gets a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder K-series petrol engine, which belts out a top power of 67bhp and maximum torque of 90Nm. This engine is available with a five-speed manual and automated gear box transmission. Now, this model series has again made it to the headlines with its CNG variant, which is christened as Maruti Celerio Green. This latest variant is available on the VXI platform and is powered by the same K10B petrol engine. However, with the inclusion of this CNG fuel kit, the fuel efficiency has improved to 31.7 Km/kg, which is best in its class. Given the propelling small car market, the new Celerio certainly bounds a lot of potential to place the brand up against its rivals. This time with the CNG variant, the company is aiming to reach greater heights in the lucrative small car market. This new hatch is certainly the one designed by keeping in view the requirements of the Indian market.

This hatchback has pleasing exteriors which are designed keeping in view the choices of the young car enthusiasts. Its front profile has a sporty stance with sharper edges and bold cosmetics; the side and rear profiles have a contemporary design which gives the Celerio an urbane appeal. Coming to the interiors - this hatch comes with huge cabin space, especially the rear room which comfortably accommodates three passengers. The interiors of the sub 4-meter vehicle look decent with the dual tone color scheme complimented by some chrome inserts. The seating arrangement provides ample leg and head space to the occupants. Maruti has not compromised on the important protective aspects crucial for passenger safety.

Maruti Celerio Exterior
Exteriors

As far as appearance is concerned the Maruti Celerio seems to be a completely different vehicle with trendy body structure and cosmetics as compared to its predecessors. Its front facade is dressed up with wraparound shaped headlamp cluster that incorporates a powerful headlamp and turn indicators. It surrounds a wide radiator grille with horizontally positioned chrome strips that are further embossed with the company's insignia. The LXI trim gets a black colored grille as standard, but it has the chrome plated company logo. Its front body colored bumper has a contemporary design with a wide air intake section, which is surrounded by a pair of round shaped fog lamps. This enhances the overall appearance of the front profile while improving visibility; fog lamps have been offered only to the top end ZXI trim. The front windscreen is quite large and is accompanied with an antenna on the roof, which gives a full fledged look to the front. From the sides it looks a bit large thanks to the tall boy stance and wider doors. There are two expressive lines that pass along the doors that enhance the bold characteristics of its side profile. The newly designed outside rear view mirrors are internally adjustable and come in body color. Furthermore, its doors have been equipped with body colored pull type door handles, which makes it look decent. However the entry level and mid-level trims come with black colored door handles and so do the ORVM caps. The car maker is offering the LXi and VXi trims with a set of conventional 13 inch steel wheels with full wheel covers, while the top end ZXi trim is blessed with a set of stylish 14 inch alloy wheels which further adds to its elegance. The Celerio has a trendy rear and is fitted with a clear lens taillight cluster with chrome inserts inside. It also sports a large windscreen accompanied with high mounted bright brake lights further aiding in safety.

Exterior Measurements:

 

This small hatch comes with a total length of 3600mm along with a decent width of 1600mm. It has a very good height of 1540mm, but the ground clearance is low with just about 165mm. However, the company has given this hatch a wheelbase of 2425mm, which offer generous space inside the cabin.

Interiors

Ed's Take: The interiors of the Celerio are contemporary, and trendy too. It doesn’t get too many frills, and even the built quality is just fine.

Coming to the interiors - it gets a spacious cabin with a dual tone color scheme and signature Suzuki design traits and equipments that can be found on the company's other models. Although it looks like a compact vehicle it has a huge shoulder and head room inside; it also comes with a lot of storage space including cup holders, magazine pockets, bottle holders, large boot compartment and many other utility based features. Its quality of interiors is good and meets the upmarket standards. Its seats have better cushions and are integrated with headrests which certainly offer comfortable seating to all the occupants. The high end variant also features a driver seat height adjuster which certainly adds to its advantage. The car maker has used premium quality fabric upholstery for covering these seats; furthermore, the top end version is installed with an advanced music system along with four high quality speakers that keeps the occupants entertained. The ZXi trim also features a three spoke urethane steering wheel with multi-functional switches for audio and Bluetooth connectivity.

Interior Comfort:

 

The car maker is offering this model series with a set of top rated comfort features that makes it competitive in its class. All the variants in this series have been equipped with a manually operated air conditioning system along with a heater that regulates the air temperature inside. It also has an antenna, fuel lid opener, pivot type exterior mirrors and power steering system . It also has utility based features like front sun visors with passenger side vanity mirror, day/night inside rear view mirror, three assist grips, rear luggage shelf, five drink holders and 60:40 rear split seats. The ZXi trim also comes with aspects like key less entry, security system and electrically adjustable outside mirrors. In addition to these, the car maker has also installed an advanced instrument panel, accessory power socket, glove box lid, digital clock and numerous other such aspects.

 

Interior Measurements:

 

The manufacturer built this with a large wheelbase of 2425mm, which is considerably large in its segment. This determines the leg room space inside the cabin and provides a comfortable experience to the occupants. On the other hand, this small car also comes with a 235 litre of boot storage capacity , which is somewhat satisfying.

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Ed's Take: The acceleration of the Celerio is just ok. It isn’t amazing, but Maruti Suzuki has ensured that it has some good drivability. The Green version’s drivability is just fine, the power is decent.

 

 

The car maker is currently offering this four wheeler with five speed manual and automated gearbox options to select from. The manual version is capable of breaching the 100 Kmph mark in about 14.9 seconds and it can reach a top speed in the range of 130 to 140 Kmph. While the auto gear shift version takes about 15 to 16 seconds to reach a 100 Kmph mark from a standstill and it can go up to a top speed of approximately 145 Kmph, which is fairly decent.

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: The performance of the Celerio is just fine, it isn’t very quick and transmission is sluggish. There is a rubber-band effect in this AMT transmission. The manual is just fine.

 

This model series is powered by a 1.0-litre, K-series petrol engine that is incorporated with a multi point fuel injection system. This engine has 3-cylinders and 12-valves that can displace 998cc , which enables it to unleash a maximum power output of 67.06bhp at 6000rpm that results in generating a peak torque of 90Nm at just 3500rpm. This petrol mill is capable of producing a peak mileage of about 23.1 Kmpl, which is impressive. The company is also offering a CNG version that is equipped with the same K10B petrol engine, but it comes with intelligent gas port injection. When switched to the CNG mode, it can churn out a maximum power output of 57bhp at 6000rpm in combination with a commanding torque output of 77Nm at 3500rpm. This enables the motor to deliver a maximum mileage of 31.7 Kmpl, which is perhaps the best in its class. On the other hand, the car maker is offering the LXi and VXi trims with an option between 5-speed manual and automated transmission gearbox that delivers the torque output to the front wheels. There are unconfirmed reports that a diesel version would be launched soon, but presently Maruti Celerio diesel variant is not available.

Mileage

Ed's Take: The mileage of the Celerio is good. It is the first vehicle to have automated manual transmission. The Green version of the Celerio is a lot more fuel efficient and cheaper to run too.

 

Powering this hatch is the 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder K-Series petrol engine that comes incorporated with a multi point fuel injection system. The company used the same 998cc engine that is currently performing in their WagonR hatchback series, but it comes with minor tweaks, which reduces the fuel consumption by over 5 percent. This small car is capable of delivering an impressive mileage of 23.1 kmpl, which is certainly commendable in its class. But the best part is that this Celerio Green with CNG fuel kit option has the ability to deliver a mileage of 31.7 Km/kg, which is remarkable.

Power of Maruti Celerio

Ed's Take: The power produced by the Celerio is good and the K-Series engines have good performance and even efficiency.

 

 

This hatchback comes with the same K10B petrol engine that is also powering their other best selling models like Wagon R and Alto K10. However, the car maker has made some tweaks, which enables the motor to churn out more power and torque. As a result of modifications, this 998cc engine can develop a peak power output of 67bhp in combination with a maximum torque of 90Nm, which may not be the most powerful, but is good enough for this small car.

Stereo & Accessories

Ed's Take: The accessories offered on the Celerio are music system, steering mounted audio and that’s about it. Competition offers more features after what the Celerio is offering at the moment.

 

The Maruti Celerio comes with an array of features including a proficient music system with CD/Radio player that supports USB/AUX-In sockets and Bluetooth connectivity. Furthermore, it comes equipped with four speakers that deliver high quality sound output. In addition to these the car maker has also installed a three spoke urethane steering wheel with multi-functional switches for added driver convenience. All the variants in this model series are equipped with advanced instrument panel with amber color illumination that features a tachometer, low fuel warning lamp, door ajar warning light, headlamp on reminder, driver seat belt warning light, key-off reminder and gear shift position indicator. The instrument panel is also integrated with an information display that features distance to empty indicator, digital clock and fuel consumption indicator.

Braking & Handling

Ed's Take: The handling of the Celerio isn’t that great. It has good brakes, but that’s about it. The ride is supple.

 

This hatchback comes with a superior braking system, which ensures precise stopping of the vehicle. Its front wheels have been fitted with ventilated disc brakes, while the rear ones have been equipped with traditional drum brakes, which works together and enables immediate braking action. It also gets the anti lock braking system, which prevents the wheels from locking when sudden brakes are applied. As far as suspension system is concerned, the front axle is paired with a McPherson Strut system while the rear axle gets a coupled torsion beam. Additionally, it is also loaded with coil springs, which will further enhance the suspension mechanism. Not to forget that the company has also incorporated an advanced electric power assisted steering, which delivers exceptional response to the driver.

Safety & Security

Ed's Take: The safety features on the Celerio are very limited, and the base models offer almost nothing when t comes to safety.

 

The car maker has not compromised on the most important safety aspects of this model series. The base and mid range models have been blessed with safety aspects like 2-point rear center seat belt, headlight leveler, high mounted third brake light, engine immobilizer, front ventilated disc brake, front wiper with intermittent setting and front washer. The top end variant also comes with advanced features like front air bags, anti lock braking system, rear window wiper and washer along with window demister.

Maruti Celerio Pros

1. Upmarket with modern looks

2. Comes fitted with a 998cc, 3 Cylinder petrol engine which provides good performance, well suited to Indian driving conditions.

3. Offers both manual and automatic transmission. In fact, it is one of the only few models to provide an automatic gearbox within its segment.

4. Value for money product.

5. Brand recognition and reliability are its biggest USPs.

 

Maruti Celerio Cons

1. Available only in petrol.

2. Lacks safety features such as airbags and ABS on the low and mid-end variant.

3. Does not feature an audio system in lower two variants.

4. Lacks rear and boot space.

Erstwhile Maruti Suzuki is one of the most trusted brands when it comes to automobile manufacturers in India. Its performance, reliability and cost effectiveness is the biggest selling factor for this Indian home grown manufacturer to the point that the recently launched Celerio is a buzz in itself. Positioned aggressively, Maruti Celerio was pitched in the market as a technologically advanced small car with an automatic transmission thrown in to add variety to its model range and give consumers something to cheer about considering that traffic snarls are becoming an increasing concern for an end user. On that note, CarDekho recently got behind the wheel of a Celerio automatic to determine its potential in an increasingly demanding segment.... [read more]
