Rumour: Next-gen Maruti Celerio launch postponed to 2021

The next-gen Celerio may not be launched this month.

According to a media report, the launch of the next generation Maruti Celerio (codenamed: YNC) has been postponed to early 2021, due to a delay from the supplier's end. The car was initially scheduled to be launched in October this year.

The next generation Celerio will reportedly be based on the Heartect platform, which also underpins the WagonR. It is expected to be larger in size compared to the outgoing model and could have a longer wheelbase as well. It could get a redesigned interior and higher variants will get the SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment head-unit.

Maruti is expected to offer the new Celerio with 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre petrol engine options, while transmission options might include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.

Spy images suggest that the car will have a larger footprint compared to the outgoing model. The test car was also equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels similar to those offered on the Baleno.
