Maruti has launched the second-generation Celerio in India from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 6.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings are underway for a token of Rs 11,000. First launched in 2014, the hatch gets its first generation update after seven years.

The second-gen hatch ditches the earlier squarish design for a more curvier silhouette, and we must say it looks classier than its predecessor. In essence, the Celerio is a more premium and better-looking alternative to the Wagon R, which has a typical ‘boxy’ appearance.

The new hatchback now features a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an engine start/stop button, passive keyless entry, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, the Wagon R’s semi-digital instrument cluster, and electric ORVMs with turn indicators. 

Passenger safety is secured by dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, hill-hold assist (automatic variants only), and rear parking sensors. That said, it misses out on a rear parking camera, which would have been a valuable addition (on the top-spec variant). 

The Celerio is powered by a new 1-litre DualJet three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 67PS and 89Nm. It gets a segment-first automatic idle start-stop feature and comes paired with 5-speed manual and AMT options. Maruti claims that the Celerio is the most fuel efficient petrol car in India, offering 26.68kmpl (ARAI-claimed). For context, the Wagon R also has the more powerful 83PS 1.2-litre petrol engine, which the Celerio doesn’t. Also, prices of the CNG variant will be revealed in the coming weeks. 

The Celerio gets six paint options: Speedy Blue, Fire Red, Silky Silver, Glistening Grey, Caffeine Brown, and Arctic White. 

The new Maruti Celerio rivals the Tata TiagoDatsun GOMaruti Wagon R, and Hyundai Santro
