Maruti Suzuki has finally launched the all-new Celerio in the Indian market. The new Celerio gets a starting price tag of Rs 4.99 lakh, ex-showroom. There are four trims and seven variants available with the all-new Celerio and here is a detailed price of the variants.
2022 Maruti Suzuki Celerio: What is new?
Maruti Suzuki has used the HEARTECT platform with the all-new Celerio. The same platform underpins the likes of Baleno, Ertiga, S-Presso, WagonR and a few other cars as well. The design of the all-new Celerio is new as well. It gets a new flowing design with rounded edges, making a departure from the boxy design of the outgoing model.
The all-new Celerio has also become bigger in size. It is of the same 3,695mm in length and 1,555mm in height but the width has increased by a whopping 55mm. The wheelbase has also gained 10mm. The longer wheelbase allows the car to offer more cabin space as well. Resulting in a bigger boot space, which is about 78 litres more than before.
The design of the all-new Celerio is inspired by other Maruti Suzuki cars like the Alto, Swift and Dzire. On the outside, the top-end trim gets features like front fog lamps, turn indicators on ORVM, blacked-out B-Pillars, 15-inch black alloy wheels, and flap-style door handles ditching the modern pull-type handles available on the outgoing model.
Cabin changes as well
The all-new Celerio comes with a plethora of cabin changes as well. It gets a completely new dashboard layout. The all-new Celerio gets a new touchscreen infotainment system in the centre of the dashboard and it will come with new features like Smartplay Studio and connectivity suites like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new Celerio also gets a push start-stop button, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, height-adjustable driver seat, controls on the steering wheel and automatic climate control system.
Maruti Suzuki claims that the cabin space has increased too but we will get to test the same when we drive the car later this week. Other than that, there is new upholstery, new seats and new spaces all around the car.
More powerful and fuel-efficient
The all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio will come with a new 1.0-litre three-cylinder K10C Dualjet engine. It is the same engine that was available with the Baleno RS before it was discontinued in the market. The engine generates a maximum power of 49kW (66.62 PS) at 5,500 rpm and peak torque of 89 Nm. It is the first car to get the auto start-stop feature.
The engine is available with both a five-speed manual and AGS or Auto Gear Shift options. The all-new Celerio has become the most fuel-efficient petrol car in India with a rated fuel efficiency of 26.68 km/l.
