Maruti launched its popular B segment hatchback, Celerio at the 12th Auto Expo in 2014 at an aggressive pricing, giving it an ideal start amid stiff competition. Being the first car in India to offer AMT technology, Celerio was a runaway success and continues to chip in great volumes for Maruti in the mini hatchback space. Available with a choice of three fuel options-petrol, diesel and CNG, Celerio gets a cusp over rivals.
Mechanical set up, powering the hatchback includes a 998cc petrol unit and the 800cc oil burner available with a choice between the conventional five-speed gearbox and an AMT unit. Additionally, Celerio diesel is one of the most frugal cars in India claiming to return 27.7km/l as opposed to the petrol version that delivers 23.1km/l in standard conditions. Priced aggressively, the hatchback packs vital features including the ABS, which is standard across line-up, save for the Green VXi (O) variant.
