The Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the Indo-japanese automaker's latest B-segment hatchback. It was spotted through a variety of spy shots from various locations across Europe and India before being previewed by the automaker as the A:Wind concept car at the end of 2013.
The Maruti Suzuki Celerio is 3.6-metres long (2.4 metre wheelbase), 1.6-metres wide and 1.5-metres high, making it larger than the outgoing vehicle. Its overall design retains all the familiar elements of the small Suzuki hatchback language but is a completely new car.The fasica gets the new Suzuki grille and will most likely be offered with projectors on the higher spec variants in Europe.
It is available in four manual and two automatic variants with both gearboxes mated to a 1.0-litre K10B engine that produces 67bhp and 90Nm torque. The manual is a five-speed unit while the AT is an AMT unit which is a first in segment and is expected to become a standard feature among competitors.
Inside, the top-spec Celerio gets beige and black upholstery, Bluetooth enabled music system and electric OVRMs. On the safety front optional features include ABS and dual front airbags. However, we expect the dealers will offer many company approved accessories for the Celerio. Maruti Suzuki Celerio competes with the Hyundai Santrro Xing and the Chevrolet Beat.
