The all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio images have been leaked. The spy images were clicked during its official TVC shoot, The spy shots of 2021 Maruti Celerio show the car in red and blue colour options. The second-gen Celerio gets a complete makeover and moves to Maruti Suzuki’s Heartect platform that is also shared with other models.
The new Celerio is likely to be larger than the outgoing model. It will be underpinned by the latest fifth generation Heartect platform which currently underpins other Maruti Suzuki models such as WagonR, Swift and S-Presso. On the face of it, the new Celerio is likely to flaunt many design updates on its exterior.
The new car gets a rounded design that is devoid of any angular elements. Additionally, it also gets a more upright nose, a flattish-oval grille with honeycomb-like elements and triangular-shaped headlamps that are rounded at the corners. Both headlamps are connected by a chrome strip that merges in the centre with the Suzuki Logo. The front bumper gets a simple design with minimal creases and will get contrast black bits on the apron and the fog light surrounds.

On the sides, the rounded look continues and going by the pictures, one can confirm that the new Celerio will be a bit bigger than its predecessor in overall dimensions. The wheelbase and the glasshouse seem to be extended which is evident, thanks to a long-ish tapering roofline. The glass house seems decent-sized too with a straight shoulder line.
The new Celerio’s rear continues with the rounded design and gets wraparound taillamps and a simple bumper design with some blackened bits. The car overall seems wider when viewed from the rear.
Expect to witness a slew of updates inside the cabin as well. These include a redesigned dashboard layout with new upholstery, a new centre console and a few more creature comforts. Features expected to be on offer include a multi-functional steering wheel, digital multi-information display, keyless entry and electrically adjustable ORVMs. Standard safety equipment is likely to offer features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors and more.
Maruti is expected to offer the same 1.0-litre K10B naturally aspirated petrol engine as the current model. This motor delivers an output of 67 bhp and 90 Nm of peak torque. A larger 1.2-litre K12 petrol unit is also rumoured to be the new addition to the lineup. This engine produces 82 bhp and 113 Nm of peak torque. A 5-speed manual gearbox will be offered as standard across the range while a 5-speed AMT will be offered as an option.
