    Looks Ok except the rear, which looks too much like the Alto and cheap! Interiors are good though. The price is reasonable.

    Maruti Celerio VXi AMT – INR 4.59 lakhs. It is priced almost like outgoing A-Star VXi Automatic. But for the same money it does not have integrated audio system, no ABS, adjustable rear headrests and has a cheaper AMT… it’s costly!!

    Thanks for the IAB team for bringing all the news so quick to viewers. I am always disappointed with the photos posted by the IAB team. Always IAB team posts parts of car (or edges of car truncated). It is good to have photos of only tail light, head light, etc but full car photos (3 to 4 angles) is what the most important.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Regular IAB reader but rare commenter πŸ™‚

    Why can’t we have a Zxi AMT with 30 k more @ 5.3 lacs? (the diff in price between non-AMT and AMT models is 30k). This is ridiculous!!

  5. Ramish says:

    I was expecting the starting price of 3.5 Lacs.
    Too expensive IMO. At this price there are other options to consider as well πŸ™‚

    Yawn….Maruti is becoming way too boring these days. Look at the rear design…looks decades old. The infamous “match box car maker” tag is getting stuck with them I think.

  8. in-expert says:

    these are the same prices as when the 1st gen swift was launched in India.

    no wonder since the Celerio is actually based on it.
