Following the launch of the BSVI-compliant Celerio last month, Maruti Suzuki has now launched the BSVI version of the Celerio X crossover-styled hatchback.
India’s largest carmaker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), has launched the BSVI-compliant version of the Celerio X. The car is powered by a 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated inline-3 engine that produces 69 PS of max power and 90 Nm of peak torque, the same as the previous BSIV-compliant model. There are two transmission options available for the car, a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT (or AGS - Auto Gear Shift - as Maruti likes to call it). The same engine and transmission combo are found in the Celerio and S-Presso.

Although power and torque figures remain constant, the fuel economy of the car has gone down, from 23.1 kmpl of the BS4 model to 21.63 kmpl (claimed figures). That said, the company claims that there will be no difference in on-road efficiency of the car. Apart from that, there is no S-CNG variant of the car, unlike the regular Celerio and other cars in the Maruti Arena range.
The prices of the Celerio X begin at Rs. 4.90 lakh and go all the way up to Rs. 5.67 lakh. There are four trim levels available for the car, and each trim has two version- one with a manual gearbox and one an automatic. The complete price list is given below.
