The specs and price the two affordable family hatchbacks offer will leave you confused on choosing the right one to buy.
So, we bring you a detailed comparison between the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Tata Tiago.
Maruti Suzuki Celerio vs Tata Tiago: Design & dimensions
The new-gen avatar of Maruti Suzuki Celerio looks more refreshing than the Tata Tiago. There are upswept headlamps and a Baleno-inspired bumper at the front. There are lift-to-open-type door handles around the sides, which now look dated. However, what add to the overall look are the 15-inch black alloy. But the rear doesn’t look that great but overall, the Celerio looks quite youthful.
Tata Tiago has borrowed design cues from its elder sibling Altroz. What adds to the overall appeal of the front are the slime grille and sharp headlines. The Tata Tiago also comes with a set of 15-inch alloy wheels with a diamond-cut finish. The rear of the Tata Tiago gives a better look, thanks to a distinctive spoiler and a sleek bumper.
Now, let’s have a look at the dimensions of both the cars.
