Maruti Suzuki will launch the new generation Celerio entry-level hatchback in India on November 10. Bookings for the new Celerio were opened this week at ₹11,000.
Maruti is all set to drive in the new generation Celerio next week to India. India's largest carmaker has already claimed that the 2021 Celerio is going to be India's ‘most fuel efficient petrol car'. According to reports, Suzuki has said that the new Celerio could deliver up to 26 kmpl of mileage, making it more fuel efficient than all other cars offered by carmakers in India.
Maruti Suzuki has been renowned for its fuel-efficient cars over the years. At a time when petrol price has shot through the roof, some of the most fuel-efficient cars running on petrol are still offered by Maruti. Notably, Maruti's Swift and Baleno premium hatchbacks return a mileage of nearly 24 kmpl.
Under the hood, the new generation Celerio is likely to be offered with the 1.0-litre K10C Dual jet VVT petrol engine. The engine will come paired with both manual and automatic transmission options.
2021 Maruti Celerio is likely to be launched with four trims and seven variants in all. It is likely to get features like touchscreen infotainment screen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new generation Celerio will also get a push start/stop button with idle start/stop function. It will also get a semi-digital instrument cluster and a multi-spoke steering wheel.
The price of the new Celerio is likely to start above ₹4.50-lakh mark. The previous generation Celerio was offered at a starting price of ₹4.66 lakh (ex-showroom) and went up to ₹6 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec trim.
