Maruti Celerio pictures leaked before the official unveiling
The Maruti Celerio has been spotted in the flesh at the Buddh International Circuit in New Delhi. The car caught on camera is the top-of-the line ZXI trim and looks too similar to the concept car it is based on. We had written about the Celerio being spotted at a photo shoot, however these pictures are clearer. The YL7 is based on the Suzuki A-Wind Concept.
The Celerio will be available with an industry-first automatic manual transmission on a production car. We had written about the system not too long ago and it will be called the ‘EZ Drive’. The car will be available with the 1.0-litre three-cylinder K-Series engine and might get Suzuki’s own range of diesel engines. The transmissions on offer will be a five-speed conventional manual and with a clutchless transmission.
There are no official confirmations on the Celerio’s launch date, while most assume Maruti might double up its unveiling and launch at the Auto Expo 2014, a possibility of a late launch cannot be ruled out. The expected on-road Mumbai price of the Maruti Celerio will be in the range of Rs 4.60 – 5.95 lakh for the petrol variants.
