The car once launched will go against products like Tata Tiago and Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS. However, the product is now expected to also face the WagonR due to its increased size. In this article, we will discuss Maruti WagonR vs new Celerio and whether Maruti WagonR buyers should wait for the new Celerio.

Upcoming Maruti Suzuki Celerio

The new Celerio will get a completely fresh look when it comes to the exterior. The style elements like headlamps and tail lamps would be better looking compared to the current model. The car is also expected to be heavily updated, considering it will be a generation update. The new Celerio will be bigger than the one being sold currently. This means it will take on the WagonR directly as it is famous for its spacious cabin and tall boy design.

As mentioned above, the car will be bigger than before, meaning the cabin will provide better space and will be more comfortable. The earlier spy shots also revealed the bump in the glass area of the car, meaning the cabin will feel airier than before. Moreover, elements like the redesigned dashboard and better centre layout are expected with the new one. Although the WagonR does have spacious interiors, however with the Celerio, we expect to see armrests and cup holders in order to give it a modern appeal.

The Celerio is expected to be loaded with features that have become standard since the last update of this car. A touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Car Play connectivity, semi-digital instrument cluster, charging ports, rear AC vents and a multi-function steering wheel are expected.

Platform & Engine


The Maruti Celerio will now be based on the Heartect platform, similar to the WagonR. This means that the new Celrio will now be able to provide better NVH levels and improved ride & handling. For the engines, the new Celerio is expected to borrow the 1.2-litre petrol engine from the WagonR. However, this time the Celerio will not be offered with the diesel engine. The Celerio will get the AMT gearbox along with a manual gearbox as well.
