Maruti Suzuki Celerio Expert Review - Check Advantage and Disadvantage
Maruti Suzuki brought the Celerio to its family in February 2014 in petrol variants adding diesel and CNG models later in 2015. The Celerio is a spacious hatchback with the automated manual transmission EZ Drive technology which sets a benchmark in its price segment for most of the competitors, not just that but it also stands first in the list of most fuel efficient cars. As its tagline goes ’Life takes a leap’ Maruti has also taken a leap in the forward direction with Celerio’s all new DDiS 125 four cylinders 998cc diesel engine. This is the car to replace the Zen Estilo and the A-Star.

With some prestigious awards like Entry hatchback of the year, Mid-Size hatchback of the year the Celerio is still 3.6-metres long, 2.4-metres wheelbase, 1.6-metres wide and 1.5-metres high. The CICO (Curve In Curve Out) styling, as Maruti calls its design makes it more aerodynamic and simultaneously gives a new look to be a car desired by many. The Celerio is also equipped with ORVM-Turn indicators and front fog lamps.
The 14-inch alloy wheels give it a ground clearance of 165 mm with stunning appearance. Maruti has put in a lot of efforts in re-designing the front as the grill and the headlamps give it modern aesthetics but the tail is similar to its ancestors. It comes in five different colors to choose from.
