The Maruti Celerio is ready to play its second innings seven years after it came out. What advantage does it have on paper over its rivals?

Maruti has launched the second-gen Celerio in India, seven years after the first-gen model was introduced. It has been redesigned, and it now gets more features than before, making it a more rounded offering. However, can it stand up and above its peers for new car buyers? We find out by pitting it against its rivals on paper.

The Datsun GO is the longest car here, the Tata Tiago is the widest, and the Maruti WagonR is the tallest. The Datsun also has the longest wheelbase, and the WagonR has the biggest boot. The new Celerio manages to play second fiddle to one or the other car in all departments, but it has respectable dimensions and doesn’t feel too small in any measure.

19.02kmpl (MT) / 19.59kmpl (CVT)

All cars in this comparison have petrol engines with displacement between 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre. Also, all of them can be had with a manual and automatic transmission. The Wagon R gets two engine options and can be specced with a factory-fitted CNG kit, and the Santro is the only other model here to offer that option. Maruti will, however, introduce a CNG kit in the Celerio later. 

In terms of outright power, the Tata Tiago’s 1.2-litre engine takes the cake, while the Celerio is the most underpowered car in this comparison on paper. It, however, gets idle auto start/stop, unlike any other car in this comparison, making it the most fuel efficient here.

The Celerio is arguably one of the most feature-loaded cars on this list. It's got a long list of conveniences, a range of safety features, and Maruti's latest infotainment system. However, it does miss out on some comforts that other cars in the segment offer. For example, it doesn't get a follow-me-home headlamp feature (unlike the Tata Tiago and Datsun GO), auto climate control (unlike the Tiago), or ESP (unlike the Datsun GO). While these are small misses, they would've undoubtedly elevated the user experience. The Santro is still the only car in this segment to offer rear AC vents.

Price Range

New Delhi Prices

Maruti Celerio

Hyundai Santro

Maruti WagonR

Tata Tiago

Datsun GO

Ex-showroom Prices

Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 6.94 lakh

Rs 4.77 lakh to Rs 6.21 lakh

Rs 4.93 lakh to Rs 6.46 lakh

Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7.09 lakh

Rs 4.03 lakh to Rs 6.51 lakh

The Celerio is the second-most expensive car in this comparison, and it justifies that position with the amount of features that it packs in. The Tiago, which is the most expensive car here, goes neck-and-neck with it. Thus, the Celerio and the Tiago are the fully-loaded offerings in this price bracket.

The Santro, WagonR and Datsun GO are in another bracket. They are not the most loaded offerings, but then they are not as expensive as well. You can choose between these three cars if you are not looking for a fully-loaded experience, and instead want certain features that are useful to you.
