Maruti Celerio review

The Celerio might be just another hatchback from the Maruti portfolio for many. However, for the Indo-Japanese auto giant, the hatch has been a potent tool to test uncharted territories. The Celerio was hand picked to feature two crucial firsts for Maruti. The Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) and Maruti’s first indigenously developed diesel motor, the DDiS 125; both first featured on the Celerio before making its way to other hatchbacks. What does the Celerio bring to the table? Let’s find out.


Pros

1. Optional AMT across variants. Easy to drive in the congested city.

2. Safety features such as ABS (Anti Lock Braking System) and Airbags available as an option across the range

3. Peppy petrol and frugal diesel engines. 

4. Healthy in-cabin space despite the compact proportions. 


Cons

1. Refinement & NVH levels. Especially with the 2-cylinder diesel motor - sounds coarse and a lot of noise filters inside the cabin. 

2. Build quality could have been better; doors shut with a clang - feel slightly flimsy. 

3. Jerky shifts on the AMT. Not as smooth as a conventional automatic. 

4. Both engine options best suited to the city; feels underpowered on the highway. 


Stand Out Features

1. AMT Gearbox. Once the cheapest automatic in the country, the Celerio made a name for itself using the term ‘EZDrive’

2. Maruti’s widespread after sales network, there’s simply no beating them at assuring Peace of Mind. 


Overview: 

Maruti has stuck to the age-old mantra for a city hatch: tiny proportions, a light steering and fuel economy that ensures the wallet isn’t pinched. With the Celerio, they took things one step further - with the introduction of the AGS i.e Auto Gear Shift. The Celerio replaces the A-Star & the Estilo in the MSIL lineup and has something for everyone. A peppy petrol, a frugal diesel and an optional CNG variant as well.


Background & Evolution

The Maruti Celerio debuted in India in the year 2014 and was introduced with six variants and a single petrol engine. 2015 saw Maruti plonk the world's smallest common rail diesel motor, called the DDiS 125 into the engine bay of the Celerio. In a bid to comply with future safety norms, the updated Celerio is now available with Airbags and ABS from the base spec. 


Exterior

The styling on the Celerio follows a design theme that Maruti calls ‘CICO’ (Curve in, Curve out). Design elements are majorly subdued and conservative, and in no way is groundbreaking in any manner whatsoever. 

In spite of the Grand i10 being a full 40mm longer than the Maruti, the Celerio has the exact same wheelbase. The way Maruti has packaged the car needs special mention. Wheels are pushed all the way out to the extremes, liberating more space to accommodate the cabin. 


The hatchback gets plenty of curves and creases that complement its compact proportions really well. The large chrome grille flows into the droopy headlamps; couple that with the subtle creases on the bonnet and the Celerio does have a mildly aggressive face. 


The silhouette is typically Maruti, just a dominant character line running along the length, just like you'd find on an Alto or even the K10 - that flows into the wrap around taillamps. The blacked out B-pillars, indicators on the ORVM and the 14 inch wheels all do their bit in adding a dab of premiumness to the hatch. 

The rear is clean and simple, with the exhaust tucked away neatly under the bumper. The tail-lamps do remind us of the Alto 800 at first glance. The top-spec trim gets a rear defogger and rear wash wipe as well. 

The boot space is a healthy 235 litres, which, although less than the Grand i10’s 256 litre boot - is significantly bigger than the Chevrolet Beat’s 170 litre storage space. The rear seat gets a 60:40 split for additional luggage, and can be folded away all together to liberate 510 litres of space. 


The design is definitely neutral on the Celerio. There isn’t a wow factor, nor is it categorically boring. The proportions are spot on for the city. We only wish the build quality would be slightly better. 


Interior

Step inside the cabin and a familiar Maruti layout welcomes you.  The dual tone beige and black combination is pleasant and dull silver accents strewn across the centre console look nice and classy. 



The build quality of interiors has definitely gone up a couple of notches compared to the older Maruti. However, when you compare it to its immediate rivals like the Zica or the Grand i10, the quality does seem one notch below.  We believe the Celerio scores very high in terms of  ergonomics  - everything falls to hand very easily and is in just the right spot. 

The driver’s seat on the top-spec ZXi (O) variant gets a healthy range for adjusting reach as well as height. Couple that with a rake adjustable steering, and we could get into comfortable driving position relatively easily. The support is just right, although we would have loved slightly more support for the lower back and under thigh. Also, the integrated headrests doesn’t support the neck , especially if you are a tall person. The view from the driver’s seat is nice, since one tends to sit higher in the Celerio. However, the A-pillar is a bit too thick, you will have to be careful while turning at junctions. 


The steering wheel is borrowed from the Swift. It gets controls for the audio and calls, the buttons for which feel tactile. The wheel itself has a grainy texture, it isn’t wrapped in artificial leather like the Grand i10. 

The cluster is a three pod unit that houses a tachometer, a speedometer and an MID that lets you toggle through data like average fuel economy, Distance To Empty & instantaneous average as well.


The central console houses an integrated music system (that supports USB, AUX and Bluetooth) in the top-trim variant, that flows into manual aircon controls. Lower variants get a 2DIN slot for an aftermarket music system. The air-con is typically Maruti, which means it is amongst the best units out there. The cabin gets cooled very quickly, and you wouldn’t have any complaints on that front.



The rear bench sits slightly higher than the front seats and is reclined backwards at an angle. The seats are rather thin owing to which the support & cushioning is average at best. The bench will accommodate two people in relative comfort, whereas a third passenger at the rear will be a tight squeeze. Unlike the Grand i10, the Celerio misses out on rear AC vents, but it isn’t a deal breaker in any way. 


Maruti has managed to wriggle out a significant amount of space on the inside for a car that has such compact dimensions. The interior has no ground-breaking features or anything drastically different than the standard Maruti fare. However, it ticks just the right boxes to be a practical city hatchback.


Performance


Celerio Diesel


The world’s smallest diesel motor found its way into the Celerio’s engine bay earlier this year. Dubbed the DDiS125, the 793cc motor comprises of just 2 cylinders. The overall power output does look meek, especially when stacked against its closest rivals. The two cylinder motor comes to life with a shake and stir, and vibrates quite a bit before settling into a somewhat smooth idle. On the move, it does sound coarse and engine will filter into the cabin at lower speeds. As the rev4s climb, the clatter becomes all the more nagging. While it lacks the outright punch you’d require for overtakes on the highway, it is decently peppy for driving around in the city. All said and done, it is still the claimed 27.62km/l mileage figure that tilts the decision in the Celerio’s favour. 

Compared to it’s rivals, the Celerio diesel has the least amount of power and torque. However, the lower kerb weight makes the little Maruti light on its feet. 


Celerio Petrol

The petrol option on the Celerio features a slightly altered K10B motor that does duty under the hood of the WagonR as well. This three cylinder, 998cc engine comes mated to either a 5 speed manual or an automated manual transmission (AMT). The light clutch and the revv-happy motor is an amazing combo for city commutes. The power delivery is linear and there is enough low-end grunt. However, the engine does get very vocal at high revvs at which the power tapers off very quickly. Irrespective of transmission option, the engine manages a claimed mileage of 23.1kmpl. 

The same engine powers the CNG variants as well, but the power output drops to 58.2bhp @ 6000rpm and so does the torque with 78Nm @ 3500rpm. However, this helps in returning a staggering mileage of 31.79kmpl.


Note: Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)

The Celerio is equipped with an automated manual transmission. There are just two pedals, and the operation is like a conventional automatic vehicle. Slot the gear lever in Drive, let go off the brakes and the car creeps forward. The operation of the clutch, is controlled by a hydraulic actuator - thereby relieving your left leg. The AMT on the litte Maruti isn’t the most polished units around. There are slight jerks when the car upshifts or downshifts, but they can be easily overlooked during daily commutes. You can also take charge of the gears yourself by shifting it into Manual mode.


Ride & Handling

Like most Marutis, the suspension is on the softer side in the Celerio. This let’s it absorb the bumps and undulations on the road fairly easily. However, drive over the bigger and badder potholes, and the thuds will be transferred to the cabin. The steering is nice and light and weighs up well as the speeds progress. 

You shouldn’t be cornering hard in the Celerio, but if you insist on doing it, it does fairly well. There is a hint of unavoidable body roll owing to its height, but other than that - it does feel composed. High speed stability is confidence inspiring upto 120km/h; post which the car will feel twitchy. Stopping power comes from a pair of ventilated disc brakes in the front and drum brakes at the back. Braking is standard fare; the car comes to a halt cleanly in a straight line.


Safety

Recently, Maruti has offered optional ABS and Airbags across all trims, which is appreciable. This is on par with what the segment offers. In the EURO NCAP tests, the top end version of Celerio scored just 3 out of 5.


Variants


The base L trim is best avoided, since it misses out on important features like audio system, keyless entry, and power windows. However, this variant has some of the essentials like power assisted steering along with manual air conditioner and heater. If you are on an absolute budget, pick the L(O) variant, the ABS and Airbags are definitely worth the premium. The mid-spec V trim gets goodies like power windows and central locking system for five doors. It also comes with 60:40 split folding rear seat, rear luggage shelf, inside rear view mirror and passenger side sun visor. The top-spec Z trims gets an integrated music system that supports radio, CD player, AUX-In, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. It also gets a tilt adjustable steering with mounted controls, a rear wash wipe and defogger as well. The Z or the Z(O) trim are the only ones that can be termed as a complete package. 


Verdict

The Celerio is a neutral car, that won’t offend you nor please. It will go about its work in a manner that will ensure peace of mind. Couple that with Maruti’s fantastic service support network, and you have a near perfect ownership experience. Yes, it does have few issues like the inconsistent quality, lethargic diesel engine and doesn’t have all the features that some of its competition boast of. But, as a city commuter, the Celerio - especially in its petrol powered avatar will not disappoint.
