Maruti Suzuki is the largest and the most famous car manufacturer present in India. Their success largely depends on affordable mass-market cars. The Maruti Celerio since its launch has been a great choice in the upper entry-level car segment. It was also the first car from Maruti to introduce AMT transmission. The next-generation Maruti Celerio has also been spotted testing a couple of times.
After 7 years in the Indian car market, the Celerio is finally getting a generation update this year. The 2021 Maruti Celerio is a completely different looking car compared to the current generation. The edges of the car have become more rounded and the back also takes some inspiration from Baleno. New integrated spoiler, redesigned taillights and a new bumper with horizontal reflectors were seen on the last test car.
