The shortage of vital electrical components has led to the delay of the launch

  • The launch was originally scheduled around May, which then got delayed to September this year.

  • The 2021 Celerio will get droplet-shaped headlamps and blacked-out alloy wheels.

  • Expected to get a touchscreen infotainment system, auto climate control, and a reverse parking camera.

  • Maruti is expected to provide it with the existing 1-litre petrol and the 1.2-litre petrol unit from the Wagon R.

  • Expect the new-gen Celerio to command a small premium over the current model.

The new-gen Maruti Suzuki Celerio will only be launched by the end of this year. The carmaker has cited the shortage of electrical components as the reason behind this decision. This is the second time its launch has been deferred; Maruti was initially expected to launch it in May 2021.

Going by the multiple test mules, the new-gen hatchback seems to have grown in size over the outgoing model. Maruti is expected to base the 2021 Celerio on the same HEARTECT platform as the Wagon R

The new Celerio will have a curvier silhouette, with droplet-shaped headlamps connected by a sleek chrome strip running across the front grille. Maruti will also offer it with fog lamps, as seen on the uncamouflaged model. The new-gen hatch will feature a tapering roofline and blacked-out alloy wheels (possibly 14-inches). At the rear, it has a sculpted tailgate and a chunky bumper.

Aside from the 1-litre petrol engine (68PS/91Nm), Maruti could also provide the 2021 Celerio with the Wagon R’s 1.2-litre petrol engine (83PS/113Nm). Both could get a 5-speed manual as standard and an optional 5-speed AMT. A CNG variant is also expected going forward. 

The new-gen Celerio will likely retail at a nominal premium over the current model, which ranges from Rs 4.65 lakh to Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The new-gen hatchback will take on the Hyundai Santro, Tata Tiago, Datsun GO, and the Wagon R.
