It is no secret to anyone that Maruti is all geared up to launch the updated Maruti Celerio next year. Alongside the Celerio, the brand is also working on the new Alto 800 which is also expected to go on sale next year. Having said this, here is an exclusive 2021 Maruti Celerio spied video which gives us a clear indication on how the upcoming model will look like.
To start with, the test mule of the new 2021 Celerio seems to be bigger than the present model and gets a redesigned front fascia. The car gets a sleek grille at the front and an air dam below the number plate. The halogen headlights are placed towards the side while the indicator lights are placed on the fenders. Since there are no wheel caps on offer and other exterior features are also missing, we expect it to be a base, LXi model.
However, it is worth noting the fact that the car still gets liftback door handles on all four doors and also on the tailgate. In addition to this, the new Celerio also features internally adjustable ORVMs. The rear profile however still looks largely similar to the present model and gives us a familiar look. The design of the rear bumper is also expected to be revised. The new bumpers do feature reflectors at both sides. Moreover, the car also gets a high-mounted stop lamp on the rear glass.
A quick glance at the interiors of the car revealed that this updated model features a completely new interior layout. The car gets a new centre console with two cup holders and centrally mounted front power window switches. A 12V power socket is also seen on the central console. The instrument console, on the other hand, seems to be similar to what is seen in the present model.
Powering the 2021 Maruti Celerio will be a 1.0-L K10B engine that produces 67 bhp and 90 Nm in the present Celerio. This engine comes mated to a 5-Speed MT while the customers also have a choice to buy an automatic variant which gets a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The upcoming Celerio is also expected to get CNG variants on offer and the prices of this car are expected to start from around Rs 4.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
