Recently Maruti launched the new generation of its tall boy hatchback – the Celerio. We thought of comparing the AMT variant of the Celerio with another popular product in the same segment, the Tata Tiago (AMT variant). In this article, we will discuss what both cars offer in their AMT variants and which one should you consider.
