Maruti Celerio X Review Road Test

Maruti has given a rugged makeover to the Celerio and comes out with new Celerio X. We get behind the wheels to find what unique it brings to table.


Maruti Celerio X Review Road Test

The popularity of SUV and rugged looks in India is at its peak. Manufacturers are in encashing this popularity by launching compact SUVs and just when one thought that the craze had peaked, we have Maruti went one step further and launched Celerio X in the market which is essentially a butch version of the standard Celerio hatchback. The company has given a nice dose of steroids to the Celerio in addition to painting it in a striking orange colour. The combination looks very well on the car and indeed Celerio X feels like an aerated version of the standard model.

DESIGN

On the outside, the design is dominated by an aggressive air dam featuring a striking Bulbar. The design of the headlamps hasn’t been altered but the presence of glossy black element won't go unnoticed. Maruti has very cleverly used all around black cladding and except the spaces like wheel arches; the use of cladding is very subtle and delicate.

The silhouette is similar to the profile of the standard model although there is the addition of roof rails to drive home the differentiation. The rear portion also looks very striking, thanks to the use of upfront skid plates and inflated bumper. There hasn't been any change to the dimensions which essentially means the Celerio X continues to remain a small zippy runabout. 

INTERIORS

Move inside the cabin and the changes manifest in the form of all-new sporty black interiors. But it is definitely the tastefully inserted Orange accents which walk away with the honor. The material quality and the overall ambience have definitely improved over the standard version; however, the glaring cost cutting in the form of integrated headrests is a poignant reminder that Celerio X belongs to the affordable category. 
CelerioX Spacious and striking interiors

The space inside the cabin is surprisingly roomy for a small car. The seat base is well extended to support the thighs although the legroom could have been better. There is no such issue with the headroom and four fully grown adults will not complain about any lack of space inside the car. 

PERFORMANCE 

Under the Hood, the Celerio X powered by a 1.0-liter 3- cylinder K-series petrol engine Maruti producing the maximum power of 68 PS along with 90 Nm of Max torque. Maruti has done very hard work on improving the K Series engine over the years and evolution has Now made it even more performance oriented than before. The engine has improved on its bottom end and as the pace picks up, the K Series engine becomes contagious in nature. It is one of the best rev-happy engines available in the industry and offers very good mileage and performance too. Complementing the engine is a 5-speed manual transmission which is sharp, precise, and fun unit to play around.

The gates are very well defined and you need not put any extra pressure to slot the gear into the desired ratio. One issue that we found during our test drive is that second gear ratio seems to be on the shorter side while in the third gear, the Celerio x has adopted quite a tall ratios. This scenario is helpful in getting maximum mileage out of the car but then it could be annoying sometime as there is a quite a difference between 2nd and 3rd gear. The braking performance is very good and the bite from the front disc brake and the rear drum brake really inspire the confidence. 

RIDE AND HANDLING

The Celerio X comes across as a good ride and handling car. There is a sporty appeal to it but as Maruti hasn't tinkered with the suspension system, we find that the Celerio x drives exactly like its standard variant. There are hints of firmness at the slow speed ride but as the speed increases, the ride quality tends to become much more pliant. Highway stability surprisingly good for such a small car and the long wheelbase ensure that car remains stable even at 3-digit speeds. Celerio X handles exceptionally well and throwing the car around the corner is a fun exercise.

Even the sudden lane changes will not deter the Celerio X from its composure and poise. 14-inch wheels shod with 165 mm wide tires are good for taking the roads and the 70 aspect ratio also bode well for the car.

FEATURES AND EQUIPMENT 

In terms of feature and equipment, the top ZXI(O) variant of the Celerio X comes with 2 din music system, steering mounted audio controls, electrically adjustable outside rear view Mirrors, front and rear power windows with one-touch auto down feature and Central door locking.

Maruti has also paid attention to the safety and security features which top of the line variant having dual front airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System, pedestrian protection system, headlight levelling device, engine immobilizer, outside temperature display, and front seat belt with pre-tensioners and load limiters.

VERDICT

The Celerio X range is priced from Rs 4.57 lakh to Rs 5.42 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It looks attractive and sporty, true to its credentials and the extra cosmetic changes inside the cabin for the compliment the designing and theme of the car. The engine and performance are one of the best among the segments; however, the space continues to remain one of the sore points of this car. Celerio X works best for the individuals who prefer to drive alone rather with family. For the individuals, it is an ideal buy and now the added dose of excitement in the terms of butch exteriors further extends its appeal among the masses.
