The Indian automotive market often sees a surge in car purchases during the festive season, with Diwali and Dussehra being prime times when consumers look to bring home a new vehicle. Among the array of options, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio emerges as a compelling choice for those who prioritize affordability and fuel efficiency.

Commonly referred to as the “bike owner’s car,” the Celerio is designed to appeal to two-wheeler owners looking to upgrade to a four-wheeler without breaking the bank. Its cost-effectiveness is evident with a starting price of approximately 5.37 lakh rupees.

The Maruti Suzuki Celerio’s engine offers commendable mileage, which is a critical decision factor for many. It is equipped with a 1-liter, 998cc petrol engine that generates 67 BHP of power and 89 NM of torque, coupled with either a 5-speed manual transmission or an AMT gearbox. The CNG variant, only available with a manual transmission, delivers a power output of 57 BHP and 82 NM. The claimed fuel efficiencies range impressively from 25.24 km/l for the petrol MT to 35.6 km/kg for the CNG version.

Size-wise, the Celerio boasts larger dimensions than the current Maruti Alto K10, with a length of 3695mm, width of 1655mm, and height of 1555mm, providing a more spacious alternative.

Maruti Suzuki offers the Celerio in four variants—LXi, VXi, ZXi, and ZXi+—with the VXi variant also available in CNG. The pricing is competitive, starting at 5.37 lakh rupees and going up to 7.14 lakh rupees (ex-showroom).

For interested buyers, the Celerio’s LXi petrol model can be purchased with a down payment as low as 42 thousand rupees. Depending on loan terms and credit scores, the installments could be approximately 11,599 rupees per month over five years.


The car doesn’t skimp on features either; it includes modern amenities such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a touchscreen infotainment system, an engine start-stop button, ABS, dual airbags for front seats, and a multifunction steering wheel. These attributes make the Celerio a well-rounded vehicle that offers a lot more than just economical commuting.
