2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio to launch on November 10. Maruti Suzuki says the new Celerio will be India’s most fuel-efficient gasoline car.
The latest Maruti Suzuki Celerio will be officially launched in the Indian car market on November 10th. Reservations for the new Celerio opened on Tuesday and potential customers can use online and offline channels to pay the reservation amount of 11,000.
Maruti Suzuki is betting big on the new Celerio to find many buyers again and highlight its exterior design changes, new cabin setup, and added convenience and safety benefits to strike a chord.
The 2021 Celerio has a more rounded exterior profile and comes with a new front grille, bolder character lines, and a host of other changes to its bodywork. Inside, the dashboard layout appears to have undergone an overhaul and may now appear younger than before.
The 2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio has a curvy design instead of the square, tall look of the current version. It gets a slightly tapered roofline with teardrop-shaped headlights, beefy bumpers, and a crouching rear profile.
Higher-end variants will have tinted alloy rims, electric ORVMs with turn signals, fog lights, rear wiper, and washer and integrated roof spoiler.
Celerio 2021 will likely be offered in four trim levels with up to seven variants to choose from. The new generation Celerio will come with manual and automatic transmission options. Under the hood, it’s likely that Maruti will use the 1.0-liter K10C Dual jet VVT petrol engine.
Maruti claims that it will offer the best mileage offered by a gasoline car in India yet. The Manesar-based automaker has been known for its fuel-efficient cars over the years. At a time when the price of gasoline has skyrocketed, some of the most efficient gasoline cars are still offered by Maruti.
Features onboard the new Celerio will include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the Wagon R’s semi-digital instrument cluster, steering wheel audio controls, and a rear parking camera.
The safety features will remain the same: dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors. Features such as start-stop idle should improve the mileage of the new Celerio.
Although the company has not officially released the mileage for the vehicle, officials say it will be the most fuel-efficient gasoline car in the country the case for Celerio at a time when fuel prices here have reached record levels and are steadily increasing.
The 2021 sedan will likely have two gasoline engines: 1-liter 68 PS and 1.2-liter 83 PS, each paired with 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT options. The 1-liter engine could also run on methane.
The new generation of 2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio should obviously claim a premium over the current model, ranging from Rs 4.65 lakh to Rs 6 lakh (old Delhi showroom). It will continue to compete with Hyundai Santro, Tata Tiago, Datsun GO, and the Wagon R.
