With substantial updates, the new Beat looks a lot better product than the old model. The Celerio, on the other side, carries Maruti’s conventional styling with few tit-bits. The interior, too, isn’t as well-equipped and comfortable as the Beat.

Mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the Celerio diesel is claimed to return a whooping mileage of 27.62kmpl that makes it India’s most fuel efficient car. Powering the Celerio is the Suzuki’s self-developed 793cc twin-cylinder DDiS diesel engine that claims to offer a higher torque/ cc of displacement than the Fiat’s 1.3-litre, four-cylinder DDiS engine that does duty to several Maruti Suzuki cars.
