 The prices of the New Celerio have increased when compared to old generation. This time again Maruti Suzuki has put all efforts in improving fuel efficiency than safety. Maruti has also added some new features to it. The Celerio competes with Tata Tiago, Hyundai Santro, Datsun RediGo. If safety is your main priority then Tiago is the safest option. Santro offer great features and also come with CNG option. If you want a car for city purpose or as a secondary vehicle and expect good mileage and good after sale service then Celerio is good choice.
