The global launch of the Celerio was conducted at theΒ 2014 Auto Expo earlier this month. Post the launch, Maruti is receiving over 1,000 bookings per day for the Celerio, says R C Bhargava, Chairman, Maruti Suzuki.

The Maruti Celerio is the first car in India to feature an automated manual transmission (AMT). While promising a lower buying cost (compared to conventional automatics), the AMT also achieves the same fuel economy as the manual variants of the Celerio at 23.1 km/l.

    suzuki’s AMT technology was a dud in Europe, but in India since the name holds so strong that even if it launches any technology as long as it is priced aggressively any thing will sell..

    Maruti don’t play just the name game their cars are far better than their competition in durability, after sales support and servicing and this is exactly where Hyundai shaftes its customers, with higher spare cost couple with higher service costs people who only go after looks get’s their large anti maturi rhetoric down.
    PS huyndai still drives like shite, pathetic steering feedback ugly, lamely soft suspension, and jaggy high speed rides.

    Did I mention maruti still give better average. Their car target one who need to be sensible with their money, if you like hyundai why are you commenting on maruti? Seems to me you have plenty of time to waste. Try taking your i10 or what ever to leh through rohtang and then comeback after service and you will know what separates maturi from ‘others’

    It doesn’t matter how the car is. Since it is a maruti car,people will buy it inspite of the fact that there are some really god cars from other manufacturers in this segment

      I second that. I came across this car yesterday & though it is brand new car, it looks ugly & dated. Even over a decade old Hyundai Santro looks fresh in comparison.
