With this trim, you don't have to compromise on much

The ZXi variant justifies its price, at least that's how it has been positioned. It offers the basic comforts you’d expect for just under Rs 6 lakh (for the manual option) and could become the best-selling variant for the new Celerio. Let’s see exactly what’s on offer with the ZXi trim:


Petrol MT

Petrol AMT


Rs 5.94 lakh

Rs 6.44 lakh

Stretch to ZXi+

Rs 6.44 lakh

Rs 6.94 lakh


Rs 50,000

Rs 50,000

Why consider the Celerio ZXi variant?

This is the Celerio variant you can enjoy without really compromising. It has an audio system with Bluetooth, steering-mounted audio controls, tilt-adjustable steering, and remote keyless entry. The ZXi even gets a rear window washer and wiper and a rear defogger for extra safety in inclement weather. All in all, the premium you pay is warranted, thanks to the added features on offer. But we must say it's still priced competitively. 

Here are the features on offer in this trim:




Comfort and convenience



Highlight features

  • ORVMs with indicators

  • Day/night IRVM

  • Split folding rear seat (60:40)

  • Tilt adjustable steering

  • Remote keyless entry

  • Steering mounted audio controls

  • Smart Play Dock - USB, Bluetooth, Aux, FM

  • 4 speakers

  • Rear window wiper, washer and defogger

Other features

  • 14-inch steelies with wheel covers

  • Integrated headrests

  • Rear parcel shelf

  • Tachometer

  • Power adjustable ORVMs

  • Hill hold assist (AMT)

  • Dual front airbags

Upgrade to ZXi+ if you want

  • 15-inch alloy wheels

  • Front fog lamps

  • Blacked out B-pillar

  • Height adjustable driver’s seat

  • Push button engine start/stop

  • Power folding ORVMs

  • 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (Smartplay Studio)

Why skip the ZXi variant?

If you want the best that the second-gen Celerio has to offer, the ZXi isn’t the one for you. This trim also misses essential features such as a height-adjustable driver’s seat and fog lamps. Even though the premium for the following variant is half a lakh, it is justifiable for the extra features like the touchscreen infotainment system, push-button engine start/stop, and power-folding ORVMs.




Sparsely equipped, avoid if possible


Doesn’t offer enough value for the price, skip to next variant instead


Value for money but still lacks some key features


Best (looking) version of the Celerio, but not worth exceeding a tight budget
