Maruti Suzuki have launched the CelerioX at a starting price of Rs. 4.57 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Maruti Suzuki Celerio has been a decent success for Maruti Suzuki since its launch in 2014, it was the first hatch in the maruti stable to get the AMT gearbox, making it more convenient for city users courtesy Maruti’s more than amiable asking price. Maruti then tried to give the Celerio a 800cc diesel engine, which was infact Maruti’s first in-house diesel engine, and while it was the most frugal engine in its time. It didn't catch the public eye and the Celerio diesel faded away. The Celerio is back this time as Maruti’s first attempt at the growing hatchback crossover market. The new CelerioX is loosely based on the base Celerio although the bumpers have been updated to a more contemporary tough looking theme, the extended grill on the bumpers lips features an X pattern on black plastic. While the slight flaring to the wheel arches and cladding give it a slightly more dynamic stance.
Inside, the CelerioX features new all black interiors with white accents complementing the exterior. The black seat trims are spiced with Orange accents to heighten the sporty character of the vehicle. The car gets no mechanical changes.
Speaking on the launch, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “Celerio has successfully carved a unique position for itself in the competitive compact car segment. With CelerioX, Maruti Suzuki aims to give this well-accepted model a bold, stylish and sporty makeover as per the changing preferences of young and social savvy consumers. We are confident that CelerioX will enhance the brand and bring in younger customers.” The company has confident that with the all-new CelerioX would give a big boost to the brand Celerio. Maruti Suzuki has sold over 300,000 units of Celerio in India so far.
