Many people thought that Maruti Suzuki has given up on the Celerio hatchback. Though, it is true that this car got lost somewhere in the launches of newer and better models. But, India’s biggest selling car manufacturer has plans to give its B-segment contender a much-required facelift. Maruti plans to soon launch the Celerio Cross or Celerio X. The new Maruti Celerio X (Cross) will be a pseudo-crossover.
As of now, not many details are known about this crossover. So far we have only seen a spy pic that shows a test mule in an orange color. This could be an indication that Maruti is planning to launch this new model in bright color. Supporting the car’s crossover aspirations is a plastic body cladding and larger wheels. The alloy wheel will get a dual-tone black-silver finish and the wheel arches will also have some plastic cladding. Suspension is not expected to change a lot, except a slightest increase in the ground clearance.
Maruti Celerio X (Cross) Launch Date
|Expected Launch Date||October 2017|
The manufacturer is yet to share its plans for launching this pseudo-crossover. But there are speculations of this model launching before the end of this year. We are expecting it to launch during this year’s festive season.
Maruti Celerio X (Cross) Price in India
|Minimum||Rs 4.75 Lakh|
|Maximum||Rs 5.50 Lakh|
While the official price list is yet to be shared by the car manufacturer, we are expecting that the Celerio X will be almost Rs. 40,000 costlier as compared to the ongoing model.
Maruti Celerio X (Cross) Specifications
|Maximum Power||67 Bhp @ 6000 rpm|
|Maximum Torque||90 Nm @ 3500 rpm|
|Gearbox||5-Speed Manual Gearbox|
The upcoming pseudo-crossover will be available with a petrol engine option only. It will be the same petrol engine that powers the ongoing model. Yes, we are talking about the very likeable K10B 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine that produces a maximum power of 67 BHP along with a peak torque of 90 Nm. The motor comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard and a 5-speed AMT automatic as optional.
