So basically an 8 lakh car doesn't get reverse camera in any trim. The absence of this "feature" in the S-Presso was considered okay, as it was supposedly cheap or entry level or whatever other derogatory term that could be applied to it. But now the updated Celerio doesn't get it. And I guess the Ertiga never did to begin.

Now I'm sure dealers would be more than willing to use their greasy hands and rip out panels, pull out bumpers and and drill nasty holes into a brand new car to add this luxury feature. I mean where does it go from here.

Even Carwale classifies the reverse camera under the Comfort category. Goes to show the perception of the common buyer, or the manufacturer's perception of the buying public. I don't know. End rant

This new K10C engine is going to come to entire small car line up of Suzuki for India including Wagon-R, S-Presso and maybe even the Alto. So, expect to see such FE values across Suzuki line up along with a commensurate increase in Price.

Tell me about it! Even the smaller spare tyre in the boot is a bridgestone ecopia. In fact we were skeptical enough to ask the Maruti folks out there as to whether they window dressed these cars for the media. Looks like top variants are definitely going to sport the Yokos.

I can tell you this... We pushed this car like crazy for 100 plus kilometers and yet it was showing us an FE of around 17 kmpl on the display! However on sustained city traffic this may drop further but my guess will be still something around 15kmpl.

Great review as always.

Never liked the old Celerio, it was just 'a lump of car' which had no styling at all.
The new one looks good from many angles.

With Ignis and WagonR, lot of cross shopping will happen at Maruti showrooms (which is good for Maruti).

Is there a difference in the gap between the front and rear wheel arches and the corresponding tyres? Iím not sure if itís really there, but the front right side looks slightly lower than the rest.

In the 1st generation Celerio AMT that we have, I have seen it to be around 11-12 kmpl in moderate traffic. The car only clocks about 8-10 kms daily and is rarely driven long distance. This could be a factor for the low efficiency but it is still very far from the claimed efficiency numbers.

New celerio in solid fire red looks so nice. I love the new Celerio looks over old one. The interior looks busy. MS is king of budget small cars. This will definitely sell well.

That is almost similar to the figures we get on our 16 year old Swift with the old 1.3 petrol engine.
I have booked a Wagon R 1.0 AMT in exchange of the Swift and it will used only in city. I was of the thought that these cars give an average of 15 kmpl in city drives with traffic.

It is because it is parked on uneven ground.

Exterior design wise its not that great, i'd prefer the old gen exterior design. But inside it is good for the segment it belongs to.

The very fact that Indian consumers still have that "kitna deti hai" approach (especially in these times) coupled with fantastic Maruti after sales support will ensure the product is a hit from day one

Did you mean engine underbody protection in general or referring specifically to "AMT actuator"?

If it is the latter, I am wondering why would the AMT actuator require a protection underside because the AMT Unit itself, comprising the actuator is not exposed on the underside because it is mounted on top of the Transmission box.

This image shows when the AMT unit was removed, exposing the area where it fits on the gearbox.

And this one shows the AMT unit mounted on top of the gearbox, that also includes the actuator.

Is it just me who sees a clear influence of Mini Cooper?
I am more than convinced of that now after seeing the interior pics especially the rounded digital dial and the circular base of the gear knob.

Maruti needs to hire new designers, this design is just terrible in 2021.

A video just came up on You Tube by Bunny Punia, he drove the New Celerio AMT for about 120 Km in Udaipur and got 30+ KMPL on MID, that's astonishing considering it involved city traffic driving close to 50 Km .

While India is moving sharply with more and more GNCAP 5 Star rated cars, Maruti is still obsessed with their most fuel efficient #Tincan launches. Kudos to Maruti !!!

How is the "new AMT" behaving ?.. Is it like the usual AMT or something more smooth..

Does hill hold work flawlessly like TC gear boxes ?
