Maruti has launched the 2021 Celerio in India, and it is available in four trims: LXi, VXi, ZXi, and ZXi+. The carmaker claims that it is the most fuel-efficient model in its segment. 

Here’s how the new-gen Celerio compares to its segment rivals:

2021 Maruti Celerio 

Maruti Wagon R

Hyundai Santro

Tata Tiago

Datsun GO

1-litre MT- 25.23kmpl (LXi, VXi, ZXi)

1-litre MT/AMT- 21.79kmpl

1.1-litre MT/AMT- 20.3kmpl

1.2-litre MT- 20.09kmpl

1.2-litre MT- 19.02kmpl

1-litre MT- 24.97kmpl (ZXi+)

1.2-litre MT/AMT- 20.52kmpl


1.2-litre AMT- 19.27kmpl

1.2-litre CVT- 19.59kmpl

1-litre AMT- 26.68kmpl (VXi)





1-litre AMT- 26kmpl (ZXi, ZXi+)





All figures as per ARAI

From the above figures, it’s evident that the second-gen Celerio is more frugal (on paper) than all its segment rivals, including its stablemate, the Wagon R. And this can be attributed to the hatchback’s new idle-start/stop tech and improved engine. 

The new model gets a 1-litre petrol engine (67PS/89Nm), mated to a standard 5-speed manual and an optional 5-speed AMT.

Maruti has equipped the second-gen hatchback with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, steering-mounted audio and calling controls, push-button start/stop, and a manual AC. Safety features include dual front airbags, hill-hold assist, and rear parking sensors.

The 2021 Celerio is priced from Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 6.94 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). It rivals the Tata Tiago, Datsun GO, Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, and Hyundai Santro.
