Maruti Suzuki Celerio

No CNG Option

Maruti Suzuki sell the highest factory-fitted CNG cars in the Indian market. However, the Celerio is not yet offered with a factory-fitted CNG option. The Celerio is the most fuel-efficient car in the Indian market but it still can not match the per-litre cost advantage of CNG fuel. We expect Maruti Suzuki to launch the Celerio CNG soon. It would be great if Maruti Suzuki also offer AMT option with the CNG variants.

Smaller And Less Powerful Than Tata Tiago

The Celerio has grown in size with increased width and wheelbase over its predecessor. While it boasts more height and wheelbase, the Tiago is wider and longer. In addition to that, the Celerio takes defeat when it comes to engine output. The Celerio’s 1.0L engine offers an output of 67PS and 89Nm compared to Tiago’s 86PS and 113Nm. What makes matters worse is the little to no price difference between the Celerio and the Tiago.

Scarcity of Essential Features

Maruti Suzuki have sensibly segregated the features with the Celerio. However, there are some essential features that are missing from the package. Features like reverse parking camera, adjustable headrests and front centre armrest are missed. Its rivals offer these features at similar prices. Maruti Suzuki should not have stripped down on these essential features.
