Maruti Suzuki Celerio has achieved new recognition by crossing the 7 lac unit sales milestone in India since its launch in 2014. Currently, in its second generation, the entry-level hatchback bears a starting price of INR 5.36 lac (ex-showroom) in the Indian market.
It comes equipped with a 1.0L naturally aspirated petrol engine that is paired with a 5-speed manual and an AMT gearbox option. The engine is BS6 Phase 2.0-compliant and is tuned to produce 66hp of power and 89Nm of peak torque. Customers can also opt for the CNG version of the Celerio which is available with a manual gearbox only.
Known among the most fuel-efficient cars in India, the second-generation Celerio made its debut in November 2021. Prior to this, the first-gen model, which made its debut in 2014, received a mild facelift in 2017 and was eventually phased out a little over three years later.
