Maruti Suzuki has launched a BS6 compliant version of its CelerioX hatchback. In essence, a flashier looking version of the Celerio hatchback, the Celerio X gets a brighter exterior paint job, black coloured wheels and orange accents for the cabin. It’s available across eight variants, five colour options and two transmissions setups. The range is priced from Rs 4.95 lakh to Rs 5.72 lakh (average ex-showroom) and here is a list of what else you can buy for the price of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X.
Maruti Suzuki Celerio X Vxi and VXi (o) - Rs 4.95 lakh and Rs 5.01 lakh
These are the entry-level models for the Celerio X with just Rs 5000 difference between the standard model and optional model.
