Maruti Suzuki will launch the all new Celerio (codenamed YL7) at the 2014 Auto Expo and the car has been caught undisguised at the Buddh International Circuit. The Celerio in ZXi trim was spotted and the design has been derived from Suzuki A-Wind Concept unveiled at the 2013 Bangkok Motor Show.
The Celerio will be powered by the 1.0-litre K-Series engine which also does duty on the A-Star and Alto K10. The engine develops 68 PS and 90 Nm of torque but we expect Maruti to fine tune the engine to produce more power and better fuel efficiency.
The Celerio will make its world debut at the Auto Expo next month and will replace the A-Star & Estilo in India. The Celerio will be pitted against the Hyundai Grand i10 and will be offered with an automated manual transmission (AMT) called ‘EZ DRIVE’. The new technology will be a first for any car maker in India and we could expect this to trickle down in future Maruti products.
