Is there any difference. And also heard from some body that Celerio is having engine noise issue. Is that also true? I am comfused
. As i am planning for new car and shortlisted these three. Tiago, alto k10 and celerio. due to some reasons not going for tiago so decided between alto k 10 and celerio.
Basically they both use same engine-KB10(68 PS @ 6000 rpm and 90 Nm @ 3500 rpm).
Yes Alto K10 is a winner on Fuel economy. But Celerio comes with ABS
and Dual airbag options while Alto gives a Driver side Airbag(IIRC).
When I was looking for a budget Automatic, I booked Alto and later changed to Celerio due to cramped interiors in Alto. In 2014 difference on AMT Vxi variant was around 60K, but definitely worth.
Engine noise will filter into the cabin on both cars. It is quite normal as these are 3-pot engines. Engine noise issue on Celerio was reported for Diesel model which is no longer in production.
If I were in market and given choice between AltoK10 and Celerio, I will go for Celerio Zxi AMT. And if Tiago was included in above choice, it would be Tiago XZ(AMT).
