Maruti Celerio X front

After the Celerio success story, Maruti has been looking at adding more options to its portfolio. Maruti Suzuki is the company that has been known overlap a lot of its products and it does the same. The Maruti Celerio X Cross will be coming in India. Recently,  the Celerio got a facelift with minor cosmetic changes. Even though there aren’t many changes to the design, but the X gets cosmetic changes. This makes it looks different.  At the 2016 Auto Expo, Chevrolet Beat Activ and the Tiago Aktiv were showcased. These would be the competitors for it. Chevrolet being gone, it will be now just Tiago Aktiv.

The engine of the Celerio X will remain the same as the existing one. There will be in change in it. This is the 1.0-litre K series petrol unit. It has a power output of 67bhp and 90 Nm of torque. This is sufficient for this light car and good for driving in the city. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual gearbox and an AMT . We are not sure if the AMYT will be made available on the Maruti Celerio X.

The wheel size will be the same. This will give it raised proportions. These alloy wheels will be of black-machined finish and will look attractive. The ground clearance of the car will not see any change either. The suspension setup would remain the same though.

Maruti Celerio X (Cross) Exterior

The cross version of the Celerio was first showcased at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. There has been a lot of anticipation in this segment as many buyers look at something different in this segment. The Kwid Climber is one of example of how a different colour changed the mind set of many. Hence, Maruti opted for a design like this. Somewhat rugged than the current Celerio and has better good presence too. The changes have been made to the design with some minor things here and there. A new front bumper, stylish side mouldings and rear bumper too.

There are roof rails and even new alloy wheels too. There is no change in the ground clearance of the Celerio X. It gets 5mm more height due to roof rails, 20mm increase in length and 35mm increase in width.
