Maruti Suzuki has officially started accepting the bookings for the all-new Celerio. The upcoming car can be booked directly through the Maruti Suzuki Arena dealerships across India or online by paying Rs 11,000. Maruti Suzuki will unveil the all-new Celerio on 10th November followed by an official price announcement.
The all-new Celerio will also become the most fuel-efficient car in the Indian market. While rumours suggesting the same were around for some time, this is the first time that Maruti Suzuki has officially confirmed the same. But we are yet to get the official mileage figures.
The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio will deliver around 26 km/l to become the most fuel-efficient hatchback in India as per reports. Currently, the Tata Tiago AMT is the most fuel-efficient car with 23.84 km/l as official ARAI tested efficiency.
Celerio to get a new platform
The all-new Celerio will utilise the HEARTECT platform that underpins the likes of Baleno, Swift and many other Maruti Suzuki cars in India. The second-generation Celerio is made from grounds-up, which means the design of the all-new car will be different from the current generation of the car.
The all-new Celerio will be bigger in dimensions, which will also translate into a roomier cabin. However, spy images of the car indicate that the vehicle will get a rounded and flowing design instead of the squarish design of the current model.
The all-new Maruti Suzuki will come with cabin changes as well. The tall boy design will allow a lot of headroom in the vehicle. We will also get to see a new dashboard with new vents. The steering wheel will be a three-spoke unit. The car will come with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Announcing the bookings open for the All-New Celerio, Mr 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.”
Celerio has started arriving at the dealerships
Maruti Suzuki has started dispatching the all-new Celerio across the country. Many dealerships have also received the all-new car and most likely, the all-new hatchback will be put on the displays as well. Maruti Suzuki will officially announce the prices this month.
The all-new Celerio is likely to get a long waiting due to a shortage in the semiconductors that has also forced the manufacturer to cut short of production. Maruti Suzuki has announced reducing the production output by double digits number due to the shortage.
