Maruti Suzuki offers a range of CNG-fitted vehicles from the factory and in the BS6 era, the Celerio has joined the list.

The engine of the Celerio gets a dual interdependent ECU which has been tuned for usage with both petrol and CNG, from the factory itself. The 1.0-litre motor when running on petrol can make 68PS and 90Nm of torque. When running on CNG, however, these figures drop down to 59PS and 78Nm. The CNG’s advantage though lies in the running cost of the vehicle. It can run for a similar distance as its petrol counterpart at a fraction of the cost, due to its high fuel efficiency of 30.47km/kg and the lower cost of CNG. Compared to the BS4 CNG variant, the efficiency has been dropped by 1.29km/kg.

The transmission option with the CNG Celerio is a 5-speed manual only, unlike its petrol-powered variants which come with the option of an AMT as well. 

As you can’t buy the top-spec version of the Celerio in CNG guise, you will have to do without features like keyless entry, a tachometer, and an audio system. On the safety front, it gets a driver-side airbag, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors while the VXI(O) gets a passenger-side airbag as well, taking the total count to two.

In terms of rivals, the Celerio CNG goes up against the Hyundai Santro CNG. Which one would you pick? Let us know in the comments below.
