Maruti Suzuki CelerioX launched at Rs. 4.57 lakh


Maruti Suzuki has launched a Celerio-based pseudo SUV called the CelerioX in India. The new model is available in 4 variants with the choice of a manual or an automatic gearbox. Prices start at Rs. 4.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The CelerioX is based on the Celerio hatchback, however in terms of its dimensions it is slightly longer and wider than the standard car. The overall length is 3,715 mm, width is 1,635 mm and it measures 1,565 mm in height. The wheelbase stays unchanged at 2,425 mm and the laden ground clearance is 120 mm. The car has a 235-litre boot and comes with a 35-litre fuel tank.

The CelerioX gets a dual-tone exterior with new front and rear bumpers. The car rides on 6-spoke alloy wheels finished in gloss black. In front, it gets a black grille flanked by smoked headlights while the dual-tone front bumper houses circular fog lamps. Moving to the side, the CelerioX gets black ORVM housings and black wheel arches, door sills and body cladding. The B-pillar, door handles and roof rails are also finished in black. At the rear, you will find a black bumper with a silver scuff plate and integrated reflectors. It comes with a subtle roof spoiler and uses the same tail lamps as the standard Celerio. 

Inside, the new model comes with all-black interiors with white accents and patterned seats with orange highlights. It comes standard with a driver-side airbag and driver side seat belt reminder. Passenger side airbag and ABS are available as an option across all the variants.

Under the bonnet, the CelerioX is powered by the same 998cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine from the standard Celerio hatchback. This engine produces 67 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm. The CelerioX is offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AMT.

The Celerio X is available in five exterior colour options – Solid Paprika Orange, Torque Blue, Caffeine Brown, Arctic White and Glistening Grey.
