2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio Spotted Undisguised
The hatchback is nearing its testing phase and looks complete already.
Maruti Suzuki has been testing the 2021 Celerio for a while now, and many mules have been spotted already. Now though, the new-generation model has been seen without any camouflage.
It looks nothing like the car on sale at the moment, ditching its narrow-bodied look and some angular lines to a more wider-looking and curvy exterior.
Images of only the side and rear portion of the undisguised 2021 Maruti Celerio are available as of now and one cannot help but think that the hatchback has taken some styling cues from the Baleno.
Along the sides, we can see that the glass house is a bit smaller than the current model, while the doors, including the door handles, have changed.
Looking at the rear profile, it is evident that the tailgate, although not visibly smaller, is curvy and sits well with the bumper (also new) unlike the previous generation car.
The tail lights are smaller and, again, they look inspired by the units on the brand’s premium hatchback. Oh, there is a small spoiler attached to the boot lid too.
While the car spotted runs on steel wheel rims, Maruti will offer alloy wheels, as well as some nice new colour options.
Although an image of the car’s front profile is not available as of now, through earlier spy shots, we know that the 2021 Maruti Celerio come with a new grille and bumper, while the headlights will be revised too.
Codenamed “YNC”, the hatchback has grown in size by a bit, which should result in increased occupant space inside. It will sport a new dashboard and steering wheel, while there will be a latest touchscreen infotainment system among various other features.
Based on Maruti’s HEARTECT platform, the new Celerio will likely be offered with 2 engine options – a 67 PS 1.0-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine and 83 HP 1.2-litre motor – while transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and an AMT.
We expect the car to be great as a daily runabout, while also having a settled ride when taken on expressways occasionally.
When it gets launched this year, it should cost similar to the current model and carry forward the sales success the first-generation car achieved.
