Looks and external features are matter of personal choice. Personally I find the fluidic design of Grand i10 more attractive and sporty. In terms of dimensions and size, the new Celerio X and Grand i10 are fairly similar. Grand i10 is marginally lengthier and wider than Celerio X while the latter is marginally taller, while both cars have same wheelbase and ground clearance.
Talking about the interiors, Celerio X ZXi has attractive interiors and material quality is also good but compared to Grand i10 Sportz, it simply fails to make an impression. Grand i10 boasts of a marginally higher boot capacity. In terms of build quality also Grand i10 Sportz is a better car here.
Coming to powertrains, Celerio X is powered by smaller, 998cc K-series engine while Grand i10 is powered by a 1.2-litre VTVT engine - hence the latter generates much better power & torque figure than the former. Both cars use 5-speed manual transmissions but the Grand i10’s unit offers smoother shifts.
The Celerio’s three-cylinder engine isn’t as punchy at higher rpms as Grand i10’s four-cylinder engine. If your running is usually on the highway and want better ride quality, Grand i10 would be a better choice. The Celerio X engine is a three cylinder, so do expect it to sound a little rough compared to the Grand i10.
In terms of mileage, the Celerio is more frugal with a ARAI certified mileage of 23.1 kmpl against Grand i10’s 19.8 kmpl.
When we take the features on offer, again the i10 has an edge. Apart from the features already available on Celerio ZXi, the Grand i10 Sportz gets many additional features like: ABS, EBD, airbag for co-driver also, rear AC vents, rear parking sensor and reverse camera, electrically retractable ORVMs, DRLs, front fog lamps, touchscreen display with GPS navigation etc.
In my opinion, it is the Grand i10 Sportz which is the better car of the two, it offers great performance, more features, a great ride quality and solid build quality.
