I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The global launch of the Celerio was conducted at the 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.
