Maruti Suzuki Celerio 2021: Five Reasons to Buy, Four Reasons to Think Twice

The new Celerio comes with a number of important updates that should help it reclaim its place in the minds of budget shoppers. Nonetheless, these changes are clearly aimed at attracting a younger, possibly first-time, car buyer.

Last month, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio was unveiled to much fanfare, promising to be the most fuel-efficient petrol vehicle money can buy in the country. The Celerio has been on Indian roads for about seven years, and the company has sold around six lakh units during that time.

The car, on the other hand, had recently begun to appear – and feel – jaded. The update arrives at the perfect time, and Maruti hopes to strengthen its small-car dominance as a result of it.

The new Celerio comes with a number of important updates that should help it reclaim its place in the minds of budget shoppers. Nonetheless, these changes are clearly aimed at attracting a younger, possibly first-time, car buyer.

The new Celerio starts at Rs. 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom), indicating that it may be priced correctly. But is it interesting enough to pique your interest, and will it meet your expectations for your next car purchase? Here’s a quick guide to help you out.

The Following are Five Compelling Reasons to Purchase a Maruti Suzuki Celerio in 2021

Cabin with plenty of space

When compared to the previous model, the new Celerio’s length and height are similar, but the car’s width has increased by 55mm. This could bode well for shoulder room in the back seats for three adults. Sure, it won’t be opulent, but it will provide more comfort for passengers in the back.

The new Celerio’s doors are now wider on all four sides, making getting in and out much easier than before. Then there’s the larger boot (313 litres), which means more luggage can be loaded in for those longer-than-usual journeys.

Feature list has been updated

The latest Celerio comes with a number of key features that aim to improve the driving experience. The same seven-inch infotainment screen found on several newer Maruti vehicles is responsive to touch, reduces glare, and supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The engine start/stop and idle start/stop functions are also available.

Improved security

The Maruti Celerio 2021 is built on the latest HEARTECT platform, which Maruti claims is structurally safer than ever before. The car is equipped with two airbags and a segment-first Hill Hold Assist feature. ABS with EBD is also available.

Resale value and post-sale network

Certain factors now help every Maruti Suzuki vehicle in the country, and they have to do with an extremely strong after-sales network as well as a high resale value. While these aren’t always top of a buyer’s priority list, they are important considerations, and the new Celerio will continue to benefit from Maruti’s network.

Mileage

Last but not least is the claim that the Celerio is India’s most fuel-efficient petrol car. Several factors, according to the company, contribute to the vehicle’s fuel efficiency, including the next-generation K Series engine, a more aerodynamic profile, and low-resistance tyres. The ARAI-certified mileage of the VXi with AGS variant is 26.68 kmpl.

There are Four Compelling Reasons to Reconsider

Looks

Although appearances are highly subjective, it is safe to assume that the new Celerio’s exterior styling will divide opinion. On the outside, the previous model had a more traditional style, but the new Celerio has made it clear that it wants to appear younger. Is it effective? It’s entirely up to you.

Competition

Perhaps the most formidable rival for the new Celerio is the trusty WagonR. Despite the fact that the two siblings have similar price points, Maruti admits that WagonR’s customer base is fiercely loyal.

A number of sub-compact SUVs and small hatchbacks compete for attention outside of the Maruti family tree. Tata Punch, Tata Tiago, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, and Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS, to name a few, are either at similar price points or slightly higher than what you might pay for the new Celerio.

There is no option for a 1.2-litre engine

The Celerio’s 1.0-litre engine is quick, making it ideal for daily city driving. It has a certain amount of spirit even on highways. However, for those seeking a little more excitement – whether within city limits or beyond – the 1.2-litre engine found in the WagonR would have made sense in the new Celerio as well.

Waiting time

It is now common knowledge that car manufacturers are having difficulty keeping up with production cycles due to a global shortage of semiconductor chips. While Maruti Suzuki isn’t the only company dealing with this unprecedented challenge, it appears that the country’s largest carmaker has taken the brunt of it.

It is unknown if the new Celerio will have a waiting list, but given that it is a new car, demand is expected to be high. As a result, the waiting period could potentially be extended as well. Maruti has already stated that it expects production to be 80 to 85 percent of normal in December.
