For Rs 11,000, you can book yourself the all-new generation of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio. This time, it features a new generation K Series dual-jet engine with dual variable valve timing tech along with an idle-start stop system. Plus, the engine’s likely to be more powerful than before. Maruti Suzuki hasn’t officially revealed its specifications yet, but we are certain that it will be available in both a manual and automatic gearbox.
Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, ‘Since its launch, Celerio took the market by storm with its unique style and the revolutionary Auto Gear Shift (AGS) Technology, that helped democratize the two-pedal technology in the country. Brand Celerio has since then stood for new age technology, modern design and practicality. Today’s urban, progressive and aspirational customers, look for lively, active and vivid products to match their persona. The All-New Celerio with a new petrol engine, vibrant and stylish design, and with host of segment-first features is an all-rounder. We are confident that the All-New Celerio will once again energize the compact segment.’
On the design front, the all-new Celerio gets a few changes up front as you can see from this teaser image. It sports a new grille design and a small chrome line dividing it and the Suzuki logo in the centre and joining the new LED headlamps. But, the interesting bit about the Celerio has to be Maruti Suzuki’s claim. It believes that the new Celerio has the perfect ingredients to call it ‘the most fuel-efficient petrol car’. Well, you’ll only have to wait a little longer to know the reality behind that claim because we’ll be driving it later this month. Until then, stay tuned for more updates!
