Maruti Suzuki to launch the Celerio ZXi AMT variant soon

Maruti Suzuki has confirmed its plans of introducing the AMT gearbox in the top-end ZXi variant its popular hatchback – the Celerio.  The new variant will be launched to commemorate the first anniversary of the Celerio and the AMT gearbox in the Indian market. 

The Celerio was introduced in India at the Delhi Auto Expo, last year. One of the biggest highlights of the Celerio was the new AMT automated manual transmission, which offered the convenience of an automatic transmission, along with the control of a manual gearbox. However, Maruti Suzuki offered the AMT gearbox only on the base LXi and VXi variants, while customers opting for the top-end ZXi variant had to make do with a five-speed manual transmission. Now though, the Delhi-based manufacturer has announced that the Celerio ZXi will now get the AMT as an optional extra. 

The Celerio is powered by a 1.0-litre three-pot K-Series petrol engine, which produces 67bhp and 90Nm of torque. Besides the AMT gearbox, the ZXi variant also gets a four-speaker two-DIN audio system with Bluetooth, keyless entry system, steering mounted audio controls and dual front airbags. Maruti Suzuki hasn’t revealed the price of the Celerio ZXi AMT variant, though we can expect it to cost around Rs 40,000 more than the standard ZXi. It competes with other B-segment hatchbacks like the Hyundai i10, Nissan Micra Active and the Honda Brio.
