Maruti Celerio diesel variants discontinued

Maruti Celerio diesel variants discontinued

Maruti Suzuki has pulled the plug on the diesel Celerio, the smallest Maruti diesel car, owing to the lack of demand. The Celerio diesel was launched in 2015 to cater to the demand for compact diesel hatchbacks.

The Celerio diesel had the first two-cylinder diesel engine for the Indian car market and the 800cc mill developed just 46bhp of power and 125Nm of torque and came mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The car was underpowered but highly efficient and did manage to ring in sales numbers after its launch.

With the prices of petrol and diesel slowly nearing parity, the demand for petrol cars increased and the diesel numbers started dwindling. In the past year, the petrol variants contributed to maximum number of sales and hence Maruti has decided to stop production of the diesel Celerio.

While there might still be a few cars available in dealer stocks, Maruti has taken the prices off the official website.
