Along with the Maruti Celerio X, Maruti Suzuki will likely launch the facelifted Maruti Celerio. The refreshed 2017 Maruti Celerio was recently spied at a dealership yard, courtesy GaadiWaadi.
The Maruti Celerio apparently receives a front-end quite similar to the Maruti Celerio X, save for the application of black colour on various elements. With the facelift, the Maruti Celerio gets a redesigned upper grille with a chrome strip at the top, a hexagonal lower grille and a sharper bumper at the front. The profile looks the same as before; even the alloy wheels have the same design. Inside, Maruti Suzuki could bring revisions to the upholstery and trim, and add a touchscreen infotainment system to level up with new competitors.
The current Maruti Celerio is 3,600 mm long, 1,600 mm wide and 1,560 mm in width. The K10B 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine should also remain unchanged. It produces 50 kW (67.02 hp) and 90 Nm of torque in the petrol model. This engine’s CNG-compliant version develops 59 kW (79.09 hp) and 78 Nm of torque in CNG mode. 5-speed manual and 5-speed automated manual will continue as the transmission choices.
