Maruti Suzuki Celerio Diesel discontinued

Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the first model from the Indo-Japanese auto manufacturer that received the Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology. Since then the automaker has introduced this technology to several other models. While the other models have been well received among the buyers with the AGS, the Celerio’s popularity also shot up thanks to this tech. Not only in India, this hatchback has been one of the bestselling models from Suzuki in several other global markets.

Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes as a perfect car for commuting in and around city. This hatchback is practical, compact and value for money. Priced between Rs. 4.49 lakh and Rs. 5.24 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the AMT version of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio has helped in enhancing the car’s popularity here. The Celerio draws energy from a 1.0-litre K10B petrol engine coupled with the AMT gearbox. This engine is capable of churning out 67 bhp of peak power at 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm.

The Maruti Suzuki Celerio AMT delivers a fuel efficiency of 23.10 kmpl. The AMT gearbox in this car helps the Celerio’s driver by releasing him from constantly pressing clutch and shifting gears what becomes a tiring exercise in the dense city traffic. Apart from that, the AMT gearbox what Maruti Suzuki fondly calls as AGS doesn’t make a hole in the owners pocket for the fuel bill, as it delivers same fuel efficiency as the manual gearbox. Another good thing is if the driver wants to drive in manual mode, he can easily do that with the AGS.

Speaking about Maruti Suzuki Celerio’s design, it appears as a practical car. But if you are looking sporty style, it will disappoint you. There is nothing to grab your attention at the very first place, but the practicality, compactness will surely impress you. Up front, it gets plenty of chrome garnishing flanked by large headlamps and there is a large air intake with neatly positioned fog lamps at both sides of it. The side profile appears plain looking and there is nothing to boast about at the rear of this hatchback.

The five seater car comes with a three-spoke steering wheel, but there is no control buttons mounted on it. The instrument cluster incorporates analog and digital combo display. At the centre console, the Celerio features a basic music system with a LCD display and some knobs are there. In terms of space and comfort, the Maruti Suzuki Celerio offers ample space to the occupants.

Price: Rs. 4.49 lakh – Rs. 5.24 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi)
