The all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio gets a 3D organic sculpted design with a radiant grille with sharp chrome accents at the front.

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.
