Maruti Celerio diesel to be India’s most fuel efficient car
After the much success of India’s first AMT model of the Celerio, Maruti Suzuki is now ready to launch the diesel variant by last week of April. Our exclusive spied pictures confirm the production of the diesel variant’s, spied parked in Manesar plants stockyard, ready to be rolled out across the country post the launch.
Maruti will be using an absolutely new 793CC two cylinder engine, with an expected output of 52-58HP at a peak torque of 150-160 nm. The Diesel variant will follow the same lines of the petrol version without any changes in the styling and features. The Celerio diesel would be priced anywhere between 4.9 to 5.7 lakhs.
The Celerio diesel with an expected mileage of 30.1Km/l will become the most fuel-efficient car in the country, Maruti Suzuki yet again will regain the trust of all Indian’s, as this would be the third consecutive model from MSIL to become the most fuel efficient car, snatching the title from recently launched Swift Dzire facelift 2015 that delivers 26.59km/l. In Feb 2015, Dzire facelift snatched the title from Maruti Ciaz diesel that delivers 26.21Km/l.
As per Industry Experts, MSIL could not hold the title for long as Tata Nano launching soon with new diesel engine expected to deliver the mileage above 32 km/l Maruti Celerio diesel will not equipped with an AMT version at the time of launch but expected to get this addition later. Tata Motors is also in planning to launch Nano with diesel engine and AMT gearbox. However, we hope Maruti Suzuki answers consumer’s need soon for a diesel AMT vehicle which fits with there style and in their budget.
Once the Maruti Celerio diesel is ready, it will take on rivals like the Chevrolet Beat diesel and the upcoming Tata Kite Small Hatchback. The Celerio diesel will offer more value as a diesel variant and shape up a position amidst competition in the rising Indian automobile market.
