2017 Maruti Suzuki Celerio facelift comes sporting design changes on the exterior and interior with added safety equipment

Maruti Suzuki Celerio is one of the most popular and bestselling hatchbacks from the Indo-Japanese automaker. Launched in 2014, the outgoing model was certainly due for a makeover and it now comes with a refreshed appearance. The Celerio can be credited as the affordable model responsible for making AMT transmission a reality for the masses.

Due to the less than desirable looks and increased competition from new rivals like the Renault Kwid and Tata Tiago, the Celerio has lost ground by a certain degree. In order to stand its stead in the first-time buyers’ volume small hatchback segment, there has been some essential changes made but they are not substantial.
