The launch of the all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio is right around the corner. The upcoming hatchback will be based on an all-new platform, however, the powertrain option will likely be the same as before.
The all-new generation of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio is likely to debut around the festive season. Ahead of its official launch, the upcoming hatchback has been spotted completely undisguised showcasing most of its exterior styling bits, as well as, interior design.
The first thing to notice is the styling of the new Celerio is very different from the outgoing model. The headlamps are shaped differently, the grille is slimmer compared to the current car and the air-dam is reprofiled as well. Coming to the rear, the new Celerio gets a new tail lamp design. The hatch is shaped differently than before. The new Celerio is likely to sport 14-inch alloy wheels finished in a matte paint scheme.
The cabin also sees a major design change. The dashboard layout is completely new, and the centre stage is taken by Maruti Suzuki’s in-house infotainment system. The new Celerio is likely to feature Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
A modified version of the Maruti Suzuki’s Heartect platform will underpin the upcoming Celerio. The engine will be the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit and the gearbox options will be the same as before – a five-speed manual and an AMT.
The outgoing Maruti Suzuki Celerio is priced between Rs 4.65 lakh (ex-showroom) and Rs 5.83 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Celerio is likely to be dearer by Rs 20,000-30,000 across variants. There are good odds that Maruti Suzuki may introduce a Celerio X based on the new model sometime in 2022.
