Maruti Suzuki India has, silently, launched the automated manual transmission equipped ZXI variant in the country. Earlier only LXI and VXI trims had this transmission. Priced at Rs. 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Maruti Celerio ZXI AMT (Easy Shift) has now become the most expensive petrol model in the line-up. While one can pre-book the car, the deliveries will begin only after 8-10 days.

Some key features are – driver-side airbag, audio system with radio, CD, USB, AUX-in & Bluetooth, 4 speakers, electrically adjustable outside rear view mirror, steering mounted audio controls, front seat pockets, chrome grille, body coloured outside door handle, door mirrors and bumper, etc.
