Maruti Suzuki Celerio vs Tata Tiago


SUVs are the talk of the town, but affordable family hatchbacks still contribute high numbers to the sales tally. Therefore, carmakers cannot be seen keeping their offerings in this segment dull. Maruti Suzuki Celerio is recently launched in the country in its new-gen iteration. With the specs that the C elerio boasts of and the price it comes at, the Tata Tiago takes the stage as its key rival. In fact, a lot of you will be confused in making a fix between these two. To help you out, here’s a detailed comparison of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Tata Tiago.

Maruti Suzuki Celerio vs Tata Tiago comparison: Design & dimensions

The Maruti Suzuki Celerio in the new-gen avatar looks more refreshing of the two. After all, it is a new entrant in the Indian market. The front face comprises upswept headlamps and a Baleno-inspired front bumper. Around the sides, it gets lift-to-open-type door handles, which look dated now. However, 15-inch black alloy wheels add to the charm. Moreover, the rear-end is not a great sight, but the Celerio looks quite youthful on the whole.

Like the Celerio, Tiago also draws design inspiration from its elder sibling – Altroz. Sharp headlamps and slim grille add to the front face’s overall appeal. The Tiago is also offered with a set of 15-inch alloy wheels. Interestingly, they come with a diamond-cut finish. The rear end of the Tiago feels better of the two with a distinctive spoiler and a chic looking bumper.
