Tata Tiago Vs Maruti Celerio – Comparison

Tata Tiago vs Maruti Celerio comparison report

Here’s a specifications-based comparison between the Tata Tiago and Maruti Celerio.

October 10, 2016 – Despite increasing demand for premium cars in the Indian market, the entry-level segment continues to dominate overall sales in the industry – all thanks to some really capable products introduced in the last two years or so. One such hugely successful product is the Tata Tiago that has brought Tata Motors back on the growth path. Though the Bolt and Zest couldn’t do as good as the company expected, the Tiago is doing fairly well for the company and is currently the top-selling Tata product in India. Seeing people’s inclination towards Tata’s new offering, Maruti Suzuki introduced the Celerio with additional safety pack to retain its top position in the segment.

In case you are confused between these two cars, here’s our specs-based comparison to help our readers pick the right product.

Tata Tiago Vs Maruti Celerio – Styling

The Tiago, built on Tata’s new IMPACT design philosophy, looks quite sporty  The hatchback has been designed with inputs from Tata’s Pune, Coventry and Turin based design centres. The front fascia of the car features Tata’s new signature grille with ‘Humanity Line’  running towards headlights. The side profile gets body-coloured door handles and character line emerging from the A-pillar. The car sits on the upgraded XO platform, and rides on 14-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, there are new tail-lamp enclosures, a sloping rear windshield and an integrated rear spoiler.

On the other hand, the Maruti Celerio is designed on the company’s CICO (Curve in, Curve Out) philosophy that makes it look sportier than its replacement – i.e. the A-Star. Upfront is a twin-slat grille, edged sweptback headlights, bonnet with character lines and bumper with a large air dam. At the rear end, the car looks typical Maruti with conventional tail-lamp enclosures and other design elements.

In this department, the Tata Tiago surely has an upper hand over the Celerio.

    Tata tiago as u all know its good in safty , interior , exterior. But it fail in fuel figure and performance. It didnt reveal the fuel performance. Company off that 23.84 kpl in petrol version. But in practical its arould 15 kpl. Which is too low. Reason behind is its noisey engine . Its pick up too low as compare to other car. Due to its 3 cylinder engine . In 2 & 3 gear shift it creat vibration and noise . Which is nt adorable. In other sense it is good car. But its performance nt too good.

      The AC of the Celerio is quite decent, it’s basically the same unit that is used for the WagonR.

      In terms resale value, Maruti Celerio will surely be much better than the Tiago which is a fairly new product in the market. Resale value of a product also depends upon its popularity and number of units sold in the month. Maintenance-wise too, the Celerio will be slightly better, but the Tiago’s after-sales cost won’t be that high. In terms of drivability, features and quality, the Tiago is better than the Celerio. Mileage-wise, we’ll keep both the vehicles equal.
