A friend of mine was looking to replace his 11 yr old Alto with a low-cost diesel and was considering the Celerio diesel. Only once did I show the video of its exhaust note, he has decided to go for the Ritz/Grand i10 petrol. He says it would be embarrassing to drive this pseudo-autorickshaw in the narrow congested lanes of his locality(the sound would be more amplified).

A certain level of NVH and refinement is a must for a six lakh rupee car. This is not the entry segment where you may get away with the crude, unrefined, noisy and non crdi engine. Sorry if I am being harsh but the highest variant with the optional safetymay cost near seven lakh rupees. Now that is not cheap and Maruti need to keep that in mind.

I just hope this does not turn out to be a mechanical diesel injection pump, like the Matador and the old Mahindra Jeep!

Attaching today's official press release here..

Press Release
DDiS 125 makes Celerio India’s most fuel efficient car @ 27.62 kmpl

Global launch of Suzuki’s first diesel engine

New Delhi, June 3rd, 2015: Maruti Suzuki India Limited, market leader in passenger vehicles, today introduced the diesel variant of its popular model Celerio.
Maruti Suzuki Celerio, the car that first brought the acclaimed Auto Gear Shift technology to India, now becomes the first car to offer a super compact diesel engine option to Indian car buyers.
Celerio Diesel offers 27.62 Kmpl *, making it India’s most fuel efficient car.
This also marks the global launch of DDiS 125, the first diesel engine designed and developed by Suzuki Motor Corporation. It carries forward the DDiS attributes of swiftness, driveability and compactness, offered in the highly successful diesel vehicles of Maruti Suzuki.
On the launch, Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO, Maruti Suzuki, said, “Celerio, powered by DDiS 125 engine, is India’s most fuel efficient car. This is also the first diesel engine designed and developed by Suzuki Motor Corporation. It is designed to offer a smooth drive and strengthens Celerio’s reputation as a car that offers easy drive in cities as well as on highways. With the launch of Celerio Diesel, the three most fuel efficient cars in India are all Maruti Suzuki cars: Celerio (D), DZire (D) and the premium sedan Ciaz (D).”
Launched in February 2014, Celerio has sold over 95,000 units. Nearly a third of the total sales of Celerio are of the Auto Gear Shift variants.
Celerio has played a pivotal role in strengthening Maruti Suzuki’s position in the lower hatchback segment. Maruti Suzuki’s share in the lower hatchback has shot up to 71% from 61% within a year of Celerio’s launch.
Made in India and Made for India: Maruti Suzuki and its suppliers have together invested over Rs 900 crore towards development of DDiS 125 and it comes with over 97 per cent localisation.

DDiS 125 is compact and light weight. The cylinder block is all aluminium. DDiS 125 comes with a compact fuel distribution system and a turbocharger suited to a 2-cylinder engine. Further, by decreasing compression ratio and installing a large intercooler it has combined high torque in low RPM and fuel efficiency. Minimising friction, improving thermal efficiency, adopting low viscosity lubricants have also helped enhance the fuel efficiency in DDiS 125.
DDiS Powerhouse: DDiS 125 derives its lineage from the DDiS family known for high quality driveability. By delivering peak torque at a low RPM the DDiS 125 engine on Celerio offers good ride in city conditions and on highways.

Responsive and smooth drive: The compact turbocharger with intercooler delivers quick acceleration and smooth drive. Equipped with a hydraulic clutch system, Celerio Diesel offers effortless gear shift.
Passenger comfort: Vehicle rigidity and powertrain integration has been optimised for lower vibrations and superior cabin isolation. This ensures comfortable passenger experience.

Low on emissions: Low compression ratio, cooled exhaust gas re-circulation and Intercooler technologies enable DDiS 125 to meet BS IV norms with OBD II.

Specifications
Length 3600 mm
Power 35 kW@3500 rpm
Width 1600 mm
Torque 125 Nm@2000 rpm
Height 1560 mm
Wheel Base 2425 mm
Fuel Efficiency 27.62 kmpl*

~75k premium over the petrol motor is unjustified for the Celerio IMO. This is considering the fact that what Celerio diesel gets is a puny unrefined 800cc two cylinder engine without CRDi - which is a step backward (I don't think the technology used is entirely new and more modern than the CRDi). I was someone who believed that the petrol Celerio itself was slightly over priced given its build quality and feature-set.

Fuel efficiency is the only major advantage and that IMO does not deserve this premium. I will spend an extra lakh and happily get a Grand i10, which is better built and has a lot of features as well.

6.7L (approx) on road Chennai for a diesel car with two airbags and ABS. I think it would be perfect for many families who cannot afford a Swift and don't like the shape of Ritz but want to stick with Maruti.

Ritz being in the ballpark shows how VFM that car is.

The public will not care. You and I will fret over technology & many other things. But the regular customer will see Maruti + FE.

I believe it is good pricing safe from next Maruti...that is Ritz which also has much better engine. I think Beat is very close to Ritz, so a buyer would ideally reach out for Ritz over Beat if he/she plans to upgrade over Celerio.

Ritz Diesel
LDi 5,46,779
VDi 5,79,308
VDi (ABS) 5,97,825
ZDi (ABS Airbags) 6,38,362

Grand i10
ERA 5,51,804
MAGNA 5,71,416
SPORTZ 6,11,043
ASTA(O) 6,70,383

You buy a diesel Celerio only for the gas mileage and nothing else? Sadly; this is a formula that has proved to work in our country very well. A two pot diesel which is probably going to be loud, unrefined and is going to set you back close to 7lac on road. A little more money gets you much better cars.

Let us start with a car that is soon to be replaced and in my opinion, a much better choice if it must be a diesel. Top specification Ford Figo diesel at just 80k more.

Full option Tata Bolt Diesel for 80k more.

Top specification Ritz petrol under 7lac on road. A little more gets you a fully loaded Hyundai Grand i10 petrol.

You must have several nuts that are about to fall off in your head to go buy this car.

Bingo!

Maruti Celerio to get 800 cc diesel engine. EDIT: Now launched!-cgjzdknukaacwyd.jpg-large.jpg


It's a twin camshaft one with 4 valves per cylinder.

I believe the LDi/VDi twins can garner some sales for the Celerio diesel. The ZDi/ZDi(O) make no sense, with the Ritz, Grand i10 & the Beat offering better options at the same price range.
