The Celerio was launched in 2014. Since then, the carmaker has sold 4.7 lakh cars. According to the company, nearly 31% of customers opted for the automated manual transmission (AMT) variants, while more than 52% opted for the top-spec ZXi trim. Sales of the CNG variant constitute 20% of the total sales.

The Celerio is powered by a 998cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 67 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm. On CNG, the engine output drops to 58 BHP and 78 Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.

Maruti Suzuki has recently updated the Celerio with new standard safety features like ABS, driver side airbag, reverse parking sensors, front seat belt reminder and high speed alert system.

I was considering the celerio very strongly but after looking at the fit and finish of the interior I was quite disappointed. The tata tiago was much better in this regard.

Waiting to see how Suzuki does the interiors of the new celerio facelift launching later this year. The top end variants of the new suzuki should get the 1.2l k12 engine just like the new wagon r.

In March 2019 -

WagonR: 16,152
Celerio: 11,087
Santro: 8,280
Tiago: 6,884

Only Maruti Suzuki can sell so many units of a car as mediocre and uninspiring as the Celerio, leaving behind better cars such as the Santro and Tiago. I literally have no idea why this car sells so much. I assume a lot of these are the taxi-spec ‘Tour’ versions? The Celerio is a taxi-favourite at least in NCR.

PS No offence meant to any existing or prospective owners.

But not in Bangalore ,hardly see any Celerio Ola or Uber .The usual suspects are Dzire and Tata Indica.

I have been driven around in a Celerio for quite a number of times.

What I can tell you is that some people don't like the "tall boy" looks of its competition. The Celerio is very spacious inside even for tall frame persons like me. 3 people can sit reasonably comfortably at the rear. You also get an airy feeling inside which many of my friends and relatives have commented too.

The engine is also above average.

I don't find a lot of options to the Celerio which can do the same without being a tall-boy hatch or that can seat 5 comfortably

Exactly the reason I chose Tiago over Celerio back in 2016. Maruti Suzuki has come to the senses that they can out sell their product even with fewer features at more premium (call it trust or blind faith).

Dated Dashboard design and scanty features in the center console can be seen easily when compared with rival cars (even if the particular feature is there, it's old gen; for example take a look at door open indicator it's just a simple red light in Celerio, doesn't show which door is open like in Tiago)

Default Re: Maruti Celerio : Official Review

Hi everyone, I have a question to ask.

In early April 2019, I got my Celerio serviced (first paid service) by ABT Maruti in Chennai. Ever since, my car feels under-powered. Its certainly not peppy. I am not sure what the reason could be. In fact, with 3-4 people in the car, its noticeably weak. I would floor the pedal to get good momentum. Especially on an incline. Any ideas/recommendations what could be the issue? Few points to note:
  1. I drive with a light foot. RPM rarely goes beyond 2000.
  2. I drive occasionally (usually in mild-regular traffic).
  3. Since April 2017, I have done only 8900Km
  4. Air filter was replaced in this service and a cabin filter (for AC) was installed.
  5. I skipped tyre rotation
  6. I am the only driver of the car.
What could be the problem and what should I do?

Thanks for your suggestions!

I'm not sure if your car fuel and oil filters were changed, but there are still many things which can cause such issue. Chances of oxygen sensor or mass airflow sensor going kaput are less likely, so as the fuel injectors and fuel pump, although I have seen fuel injectors getting replaced within warranty period for such issue.

Cars frequently running on near empty tank are more prone to fuel pump issues.

Get it checked at different showroom
