It is not unknown that Maruti Suzuki has been busy with the development of the next-gen Celerio for quite some time now. The launch may have suffered a delay due to the prevailing conditions due in the wake of the pandemic but we may finally be able to see the launch soon. The Maruti Suzuki Celerio has been due for an update for a long time and is likely to share a lot of exteriors and interior elements with the Wagon R. The Celerio will be based on the new Heartect platform which will offer a bit larger dimensions to the new Celerio. This will enahnce the spacious quotient for the passengers in the back with more legroom and a wider cabin. Let us discuss what the video tells us about the interiors as well as the exteriors of the Celerio in a bit of detail.
2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio – Spy Shots
The spy shots give us a fair bit of idea about the overall appearance and body shape of the Celerio. It is suspected to maintain a tall-boy body stance to keep it in line with its rivals like the Hyundai Santro. Also, it might well be inspired by its own in-house sibling in the Wagon R. The exteriors might include a new headlamp unit, redesigned bumper, LED DRLs, reshaped front grille, new alloy wheels, new taillamps, sporty rear bumper and much more. The higher trims might feature the alloy wheels but the lower trims will come with the steel wheels. The overall design is expected to be quite different than the current model on sale representing the fresh and modern age.
2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio – Spied Interiors
The interiors of the Celerio are clearly visible in the video as well. There will be modern design elements along with modern tech and convenience features which might include a Digital Infotainment Touchscreen Syste, Digital or Part-Digital Instrument Cluster, Steering Mounted Audio Controls, Bluetooth and Smartphone Connectivity, Automatic Climate Control to name a few. The safety aspects might include Dual Airbag Setup, ABS with EBD as standard equipment. There will likely be Reverse Parking Sensors with Cameras as well. All in all, it will most likely be a cabin full of comfort and modern features.
2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio – Expected Powertrains, Prices and Rivals
The new Celerio will most likely come with a 1.0-litre petrol or a 1.2-litre petrol engine. The 1.0-litre engine will make 68hp and 90Nm and the 1.2-litre will make 82hp and 113Nm. Both engines will come mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT transmission. We expect the prices of the updated Celerio to be a bit higher than the current model. This means that the 2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio might cost you somewhere between Rs 4.50 lakh to Rs 7.50 lakh, showroom. The rivals of the Celerio are not too many, but they are Hyundai Santro and Renault Kwid.
