The 2021 Maruti Celerio has started arriving at dealerships ahead of its launch in a few days time.

Maruti claims that it will offer the best mileage that any petrol car in India has on offer till date. The Manesar-based carmaker has been renowned for its fuel-efficient cars over the years.

A teaser video released by Maruti also shows a semi-digital instrument cluster and a multi-spoke steering wheel as well.
When launched, 2021 Maruti Celerio take on rivals like the Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago in the entry-level hatchback segment. Expect the pricing of the new Celerio to start above ₹4.50-lakh mark.
