All-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio 2021 to launch on November 10
2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio will likely be based on a new platform with a redesigned exterior and interior; a new 1.0-liter petrol engine will also be offered
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) is set to launch the new generation of Celerio in the domestic market on November 10, 2021. The country’s largest automaker has been working on the new generation of Celerio for some time now and it has also been spotted testing a number of times and even once undisguised.
The Celerio has been on sale since 2014 and it has certainly made a big impact in the affordable space. Spy images indicate more bulbous proportions and the availability of a new platform meant the proportions could be larger than the outgoing model. It should be supported by the Heartect K lightweight architecture.
Reports indicate that the next hatchback will be equipped with the K10C gasoline unit. The naturally aspirated powertrain has been used by a multitude of MSIL models and is known for its fuel efficient nature. However, it features DualJet technology that debuted in the 1.2-liter K12N engine of the Baleno premium sedan and is also widely used across the range.
The three-cylinder engine will likely get a slight increase in power and the DualJet technology would allow higher fuel economy as it is estimated at around 26 kmpl. The new K10C engine with DualJet technology will be paired with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed AMT transmission and it will be sold in a wide range.
It won’t get a 1.2-liter engine as the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder K10C will be the only offering. The interior will likely get a major overhaul and feature the latest touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a possible semi-digital instrument cluster, and more. in the high-end variants.
The launch of the second generation Maruti Suzuki Celerio has been expected for many months now and will be the company’s first all-new model for a long time. Its price is expected to be aggressive compared to the competition.
