Three quarters front left

In terms of suitability, the new Celerio is on the right track. It is primarily intended for first-time car buyers, and some may also choose it as the second car in the family. By scoring well in both practicality and ease of driving, it clearly gives the target audience what they want.

Rear right three quarters

Of course, it’s not perfect. It could do with a nicer steering wheel, better rear seats and a more fluid ride. It also needs modern door handles and an easier-to-use driver information system. However, these are really areas for improvement, not deal-breakers. Furthermore, compared béo the older Celerio, the new one not only justifies its price premium, but it’s more desirable now.

Engine and performance

8/10

Shot Engine

The new Celerio is powered by a modified one-litre, three-cylinder engine. And although it’s not more powerful than the old one, the new one is more efficient, easier béo operate and it also has a good NVH; especially for a three cylinder. Maruti worked on reducing friction inside the engine; it used lighter components, and it put in more technology béo make the engine more pleasant. K10C uses dual fuel injectors for better fuel injection, thus providing better efficiency. It uses variable valve timing and lift on both the exhaust and intake sides béo help improve drivability at lower revs. And it uses exhaust gas treatment béo reduce emissions; béo the extent that this motor is now BS6 Stage Two compliant.

Right front three quarters

The motor is now also on a pendulum mounting system. In theory, this should cut down on the overall three-cylinder engine vibrations that passengers feel inside the cabin, especially at idle and when starting the car. And apparently it works on the new Celerio.

Hardly any vibrations can be felt at any of the contact points, then the steering wheel, gear lever, pedals or seat. Even when the revs are close béo its red line, there aren’t any horrible vibrations. The engine also doesn’t sound tense or unrefined at high rpm.

Left view

In terms of performance, there is a strong complaint in the low and midrange on offer. Not enough béo get the front wheels béo spin during acceleration or even béo get the car béo 100 km/h from a standstill in 10 seconds. However, it is enough for you béo feel that the Celerio is a light and compact car. It’s also enough béo easily clear traffic and pass quickly on Rajasthan’s single-lane roads.

Rear right three quarters

In fact, with its warning throttle response and engine ready béo rev, it makes for a fun and enjoyable ride. It’s more enjoyable with the five-speed manual with a well-positioned gear lever that offers smooth gear shifts and short throw action. However, AMT or AGS are not bad either. Of course, this is the more convenient option, especially when traffic is moving slowly, over obstacles. And Maruti calibrated it well. It’s intuitive, responsive, and predictable enough béo just operate off the throttle input without actually using the manual override. But, yes, it’s nowhere near as good as a manual if it’s a spirited driving experience and more that one is after.

Ride and Handle

7/10

Front view

The lack of weight on the new Celerio also shows in its handling. It feels light and agile, as well as easy and playful around corners. However, it also feels stable at 110-120 km/h on the highway. However, ride quality could be softer and less hectic, especially on a series of bumpy, potholes or on a poor stretch of road. The bump is odd, especially if it’s not so pronounced – like an experience in awkward transitions – the Celerio’s ride is well-rounded and absorbent. if it weren’t so obvious as an experience in awkwardly forwarded passages. It also doesn’t mind potholes or odd seams. And if the speed is below 20kmph, it also handles plastic speed breakers, which change.

Left view

However, try béo pass the vehicle behind faster, or even show it a series of bumps or potholes, and the ride becomes noisy and bumpy. The suspension also took longer béo settle than desired, which made travel seem hectic, especially on a poor stretch of road. There’s no discernible side-to-side movement, and Celerio’s rear rarely swings out of the chair. However, the difference in low and high impact levels of the car is so obvious, it effectively detracts from the overall comfort of the car.

Space and interior quality

7/10

dashboard

One of the reasons why the average 8-9 thousand people buy Celerio’s every month, is the practicality it offers. The new one builds on that. It has ample seating for four adults; It now has a significantly larger boot and it’s still easy béo drive thanks béo good visibility and light control. Moreover, the overall appearance of the cabin has been significantly upgraded. All is still the hard plastic that characterizes the cabin of the new Celerio. However, the design of the dashboard, the tight fit all around, and the brushed chrome and aluminum highlights all over, give the cabin a more luxurious and upscale air. We also like the design of the seat fabric, as it enhances this feeling even more. Other than that, the surrounding buttons, stalks, dials, and levers are not flimsy at all and work well.

Front row seats

Like we mentioned earlier, the new Celerio offers spacious seating for four. There’s enough knee and head room for rear passengers, and with just two in the back, there’s also room for shoulders and elbows. However, the rear seats do not have adjustable headrests, which is a shortcoming. And the bottom cushion of the seat could be better, too; for more support, especially for thighs.

Second row seats

There are no such problems with the front seats, and the seats are comfortable béo sit for hours on end. The front seats also don’t have adjustable headrests, but the design of the seats makes up for that. We also like the driving position that the height-adjustable driver’s seat and rake-adjustable handlebars offer. However, this is only true for the top-spec trim.

Another powerful attribute of the new Celerio is the ease of entry/exit it offers. With wide doors, high seats, high doors, getting in and out of the car is quite easy. So the elderly should cherish that.

Features and devices

6/10

The instrument cluster

The top-spec Celerio we have here retails for Rs 7.5 lakh en route for the manual version. And this puts it in remarkable distance – for the price – with the Hyundai i10 Nios Sportz (Rs 7.8 lakh, OTR). Now, in terms of features, Celerio lags a bit behind. Yes, Hyundai is a bit more expensive. And so, in that sense, the Celerio is more of a par with the course than a stellar product when it comes béo equipment.

Engine start button

So, one with a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a power-folding ORVM, a multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a rear windshield wiper. Meanwhile, the AMT also has a ramp hold function, making life easier for those new béo automatic transmissions.

Inference

7/10

Front view

Celerio in the new generation avatar is a much nicer car. It looks younger and more desirable. It looks more luxurious on the inside. It has a bigger boot. And it’s still easy béo drive and live with. It has also enhanced NVH, drivability and the fuel economy game with the updated K10C engine. And the AMT version is convenient, while the manual is fun.

Left view

It’s not exactly a steal or great value for what it is, what it offers and the price it pays. However, for those looking for a spacious, easy-to-drive, easy-to-see, first car that won’t break down, the new Celerio checks the right boxes.
