Maruti Suuzki has launched a taxi variant of the Maruti Celerio – the Maruti Celerio Tour H2. The Maruti Celerio Tour H2 is based on the latest facelifted Maruti Celerio that was introduced in October 2017.
The Maruti Celerio Tour H2 does away with chrome garnish for the mesh grille, front fog lamps, body coloured exterior mirrors and alloy wheels. The basic, steel wheels are devoid of wheel caps in the taxi variant. The Celerio Tour H2 slots between the entry-level Celerio LXI and the Celerio LXI(O).
The Celerio Tour H2 is powered by the K10B 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 50 kW (68 PS) at 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission sends power to the front wheels. The fuel economy is rated at 23.10 km/l. The CNG version of the K10B engine and the 5-speed AGS automated manual transmission options are unavailable in the Tour H2 variant. Maruti Suzuki has fitted it with a speed limiting device that restricts the top speed to 80 km/h.
The Maruti Celerio Tour H2 costs INR 4,20,693 (ex-showroom Delhi). It is cheaper by about INR 13,000 than the Celerio LXi(O) variant.
