Maruti Celerio Review

Highlights

10 July, 2015: Maruti Celerio has crossed 100,000 sales mark in the country, the hatchback was launched last year at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. It started the AMT - (Automated-Manual transmission) trend in the country and was once the cheapest automatic available. Moreover, on June 03 2015, Celerio diesel was launched @ Rs 4.65 lac. Christened as DDiS125 is now India’s smallest and cheapest diesel car till date. Powered by an all-new indigenously developed 2-cylinder 793cc diesel engine, the Celerio delivers the country’s best-ever fuel efficiency figure of 27.62 kmpl. Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the maximum power output from the engine stands at 47.6 bhp @ 3,500 rpm and the peak torque is rated at 125 Nm @ 2,000 rpm. Instead of a common-rail diesel injection, this new engine boasts a Bosch engine management system that comprises of a fuel injection block, a high-pressure fuel pump and a fuel control unit.

Overview

Maruti Suzuki India is the leading automobile brand in the country with a fleet of highly popular car models. It has always managed to keep its numero-uno position in the industry by introducing new and updated car models. Now again, it has created a buzz in the car markets by introducing diesel versions of Maruti Celerio . According to the ARAI certification, this newly launched version is capable of producing a maximum mileage of 27.62 Kmpl, which is the most by any other vehicle in this segment. Under its hood, there is a newly developed 0.8-litre mill that runs on 2 cylinder configuration. Currently, this vehicle is offered only with a five speed manual transmission gearbox, while the AMT gearbox is expected The manufacturer has rolled out this version in four variants like LDi, VDi, ZXi and ZXi (O). Its top end version features airbags for front passengers, an efficient security system, driver's seat height adjuster, and ABS with EBD. On the other hand, all its petrol trims have been retained without any update to its variant line-up or to its features and specifications. The petrol trims are powered by the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder K-series motor that churns out 67bhp of power and generates 90Nm of commanding torque. This mill is available with both manual and AMT transmission. Additionally, the manufacturer is also offering a CNG version on the VXi platform, which is also equipped with the same K10B petrol mill. This version, with the help of CNG fuel kit, can give away a mileage of 31.7 Km/kg, which is best in its class.

In terms of exteriors, the newly introduced version looks the same like its existing petrol trims. Even the interiors too looks the same, since the change is only regarding the drive-train. There is no doubt that this hatchback has a pleasing exterior design that would certainly grab the attention of young car enthusiasts. The top end version also gets the set of alloy wheels, which further adds to its bold appeal. It has a very attractive front profile owing to its wider radiator grille and large headlight cluster. Coming to the interiors, it has enough space that is good enough to host at least five passengers. Its cabin has a dual tone color scheme along with chrome accents that makes the interiors look soothing to the eye. On the other hand, its safety aspects are considerably better than other cars in its class, as it has features like ABS, dual front airbags, front fog lamps and an advanced security system. With its exceptional fuel efficiency and decent features, it will take on the likes of Chevrolet Spark, Ford Figo, and the upcoming Renault Kwid.

Exterior

Exteriors

Coming to the external appearance, the newly launched version looks no different from the existing petrol versions. The company has made no changes to its exterior design, since the change is only regarding its power-plant. It has a bold front facade unlike other entry level hatchbacks, thanks to its aggressive radiator grille that has horizontally positioned slats with chrome accents. Headlight clusters are placed on either sides of the grille, which are large and are powered by halogen based headlamps. The entry level LXI trim gets the grille in black color, but the company's logo is done up in chrome. The body colored front bumper has a contemporary design with a wide air intake section. Only the top end version gets this bumper with a pair of round shaped fog lamps, which increases the visibility. From the side profile it looks slightly bigger than other hatchbacks as it is taller and has wider doors. Furthermore, two expressive lines on its doors gives a resplendent look to the side facet. The outside mirrors are done up in body color, but it has not been given with turn blinkers. The automaker is offering base and mid range 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. At the rear, this four wheeler has a trendy design. It is fitted with a clear lens taillight cluster that has chrome inserts inside. It also sports a large windscreen accompanied with high mounted bright brake light, which adds to the 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 1560mm, 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.

Interior

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.

Like its exteriors, the insides of the petrol and newly launched versions look the same with dual tone color scheme. The cabin is extremely spacious with greater headroom, which eventually makes it comfortable for the occupants inside. Inside the cabin, it gets the signature Suzuki design traits and equipments that can be found on several other models of the manufacturer. While providing decent seat space, this vehicle also provides lot of storage spaces including cup holders, magazine pockets, bottle holders and a large boot compartment. The quality of the material used for the interiors is good, which is the reason why it looks so pleasant from inside. Its seats have better cushions and are integrated with headrest, which certainly offers comfortable seating to all the occupants. The high end version also features a driver seat height adjuster, which is an added advantage. The car maker has used premium quality fabric upholstery for covering these seats. In terms of equipments, its high end versions are being offered with a proficient music system along with four high quality speakers that keeps the occupants entertained while traveling. At the same time, they are also offered with a stylish three spoke urethane steering wheel with multi-functional switches mounted on it. This makes it simpler to operate volume of audio, while receiving calls.

Interior Comfort:

Currently, this model series is available in four trim levels among which, one is the optional trim. Compared to other hatchbacks, this vehicle gets a lengthy list of features that eventually makes it more competitive in the segment. All the trims have been equipped with a manually operated air conditioning system along with a heater that regulates the air temperature inside. They also have an antenna, fuel lid opener, pivot type exterior mirrors and power steering system. Furthermore, it also has utility based features like front sun visors with passenger side vanity mirror, day/night inside rear view mirror, rear luggage shelf, three assist grips, 60:40 rear split seats and five drink holders. The mid range trim also has central door lock and electric power windows. On the other hand, the ZXi and ZDi trim also comes with aspects like 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. Beside these, its optional trims have features like driver's seatbelt warning lamp, tilt adjustable steering, keyless entry function and driver's seat height adjuster.

Interior Measurements:

Since there are no updates made to its dimensions, its cabin remains spacious as usual. The car maker built this with a large wheelbase of 2425mm, which is considerably large. On the other hand, this small car also comes with a 235 litre of boot storage capacity, which is somewhat satisfying.

Gear

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.

 

Its petrol trims are available with five speed manual and automated gearbox options to select from. The manual gearbox enables this vehicle to break the 100 Kmph mark in about 14.9 seconds. At the same time, it goes upto a maximum speed in the range of 130 to 140 Kmph. While the auto gear shift version requires about 15 to 16 seconds to reach a 100 Kmph mark from a standstill. On the other hand, the other motor is available only with a five speed manual gearbox option that enables the vehicle to reach a maximum speed of 125 Kmph. It takes about 19 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 Kmph.

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.

 

The newly launched diesel versions are fitted with an indigenously built 0.8-litre drive-train that comprises of 2 cylinders, displacing 793cc. This mill has the ability to produce a peak power of just about 47bhp at 3500rpm, but surprisingly, its torque output clocks at 125Nm at 2000rpm, which is rather astonishing. This mill is mated to a five speed manual gearbox that sends out the output to the front wheels. On the other hand, there are rumours suggesting that the manufacturer might offer this version with AMT gearbox in coming months. Coming to its petrol trims, they are powered by a 1.0-litre, K-series power-plant that is incorporated with a multi point fuel injection system. This mill 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. The company is also offering a CNG version that is equipped with the same K10B petrol mill, but it comes with intelligent gas port injection. When switched to the CNG mode, it can churn out 57bhp of maximum power at 6000rpm and delivers 77Nm of peak torque at 3500rpm. Apart from the optional petrol trim, all the other trims are available with an option to choose between 5-speed manual and automated transmission gearbox.

TachoMeter

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.

 

This vehicle is now available with two power-plants with three different fuel options. Its petrol and CNG trims are powered by the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder K-Series engine that is incorporated with a multi point fuel injection system. With petrol injection, this mill is capable of producing a maximum mileage of 23.1 kmpl, which is quite good in its class. However, with CNG injection, the mileage goes upto 31.7 Km/kg. On the other hand, the newly introduced version is capable of returning 27.62 Kmpl (as per ARAI), which is rather 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.

 

 

The newly launched version is slightly less powerful, but its torque output is better than other hatchbacks. Like mentioned above, it is powered by a 793cc mill that runs on 2 cylinder configuration. It churns out 47bhp of maximum power and delivers 125Nm of impressive torque. On the other hand, its petrol trims are powered by a K10B drive-train that has 3 cylinders. This mill unleashes 67bhp of power along with a hammering torque of 90Nm. However, this output goes down when switched to CNG fuel. In this case it churn out 57bhp of maximum power that results in 77Nm of peak torque.

Accessories

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.

 

This hatchback comes with an array of equipments that keeps the occupants entertained on the go. However, they can be found only in the high end trims. Those versions house a proficient audio unit featuring a CD player and a Radio. Additionally, they also have support for USB, AUX-In and Bluetooth connectivity, which enables seamless audio streaming and calls connectivity. The high end trims also have a three spoke urethane steering wheel with multi-functional switches that makes it quite convenient to the driver.

You can now buy Maruti Celerio accessories online. Great discounts available.

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. The high end trims have anti lock braking system that improves its overall mechanism. In terms of suspension, the front axle is paired with a McPherson Strut system and the rear one gets a coupled torsion beam. Additionally, it is also loaded with coil springs, which is helpful to keep the vehicle well balanced. Handling this hatchback is rather simple, thanks to its power assisted steering system, which supports a minimum turning radius of just 4.7 meters.

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.

 

Like mentioned above, the manufacturer has not compromised on the most important safety aspects of this model series. The base and mid range trims have same set of safety features like 2-point rear center seat belt, high mounted third brake light, headlight leveler, front ventilated disc brake, immobilizer, front wiper with intermittent setting and front washer. While the ZXi and ZDi trims have rear window wiper with washer, driver airbag, and a rear window demister. While the optional trims have features like dual front air bags, anti lock braking system, and outside air temperature display.

Wheels

Wheels

The neatly crafted wheel arches of base and mid range trims are fitted with a set of 13-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers. These rims are further covered with high performance tubeless radial tyres of size 155/80 R13. While top end trim gets a classy set of 14-inch alloy wheels, which have been equipped with 165/70 R14 sized radials. The company has also given a full size spare wheel, which is affixed in the boot compartment with all other tools required for changing a flat tyre.

Pros

 

1. This vehicle is the most fuel efficient in the market.

2. AMT gearbox is an added advantage.

3. External appearance is rather decent.

4. Value for money product with good set of features.

5. Service after sales is good.

 

Cons

 

1. There is no AMT gearbox option for oil-burners.

2. Lacks safety features like EBD and side airbags.

3. Music system can be offered in mid range trims.

4. Low ground clearance and boot compartment is a drawback.

5. Power output can be improved.
