BS6 version of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X crossover-style hatchback has been launched in India at a starting price of Rs. 4.9 lakh.
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), India’s largest carmaker, has recently launched the BSVI-compliant version of their budget crossover-hatchback, the Celerio X.
Maruti Celerio X (BSVI model) launched in India
The crossover-inspired is based on the Celerio, and uses the same 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated inline-3, K-series engine. This powerplant can generate a maximum power of 69 PS and a peak torque of 90 Nm. Although the output is the same as before, the fuel economy has reduced slightly compared to the BSIV model. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed AMT (dubbed AGS, short for Auto Gear Shift, by Maruti).
As stated prior, the fuel economy of the new Celerio X (BS6) has reduced. The car now offers a claimed mileage of 21.63 kmpl, down from the 23.1 kmpl delivered by the BS4 model. Also, there is no S-CNG variant on sale at the moment, in contrast to other Maruti cars like the S-Presso, Wagon R, and even the regular Celerio.
The interior of the 2020 Maruti Celerio X remains unchanged
The 2020 Maruti Celerio X is available in four trims, and each trim has two versions, one with a manual transmission and one with automatic. Thus, there are a total of eight trim levels to choose from. The complete price list is given below.
There are absolutely no changes to the styling of the car. The exterior features the same, Celerio-based design as before, with black accents starting from each headlamp and going down to the fog lamp housings. To emphasis the crossover-quotient, you get plastic cladding on the wheel arches, side skirts, and the front and rear bumpers. The cabin maintains its previous design as well. There is a multifunction steering wheel on offer, along with a driver information display for the instrument cluster. You also get ABS, EBD, driver airbag, rear parking sensors, over-speed alert, door-open warning, and seat belt reminders (front seats).
