All-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio launched in India

Maruti Suzuki has launched the all-new Celerio in India. The new-generation hatchback, built on the Heartect platform, is powered by the new K-series engine. The company says the Celerio is India’s most fuel-efficient vehicle (in its category), providing mileage of 26.68 kmpl. The Celerio comes in four variants at a starting price of INR 4.99 lakh.


The all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio gets a 3D organic sculpted design with a radiant grille with sharp chrome accents at the front. The new-generation car features the same headlights as its predecessor’s but the tail lights are now droplet-styled. The vehicle, standing on 15-inch Urbane black-coloured alloy wheels, is 55mm wider than its predecessors.

The Celerio’s interior features a spacious cabin and contemporary dashboard. On the dashboard sits an integrated 17.78cm infotainment system (with an in-built navigation feature) that is compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. 


The all-new Celerio is powered by a new K-series engine: K10C dual VVT (BS6 compliant), which generates a power of 49 kW at 5500 rpm and a torque of 89 Nm at 3800 rpm. Its engine is mated to a five-speed manual or an auto gear-shift transmission. The vehicle comes with a first- in-segment idle start-stop feature that shows improved fuel-efficiency–providing a certified ARAI mileage of 26.68 kmpl.


The new-generation vehicle is 55mm wider than its predecessors. The car features a 60:40 split rear seat that provides 313 litres of boot space–40% more than its predecessors did.
