Maruti Suzuki, India’s leading car manufacturer, on Wednesday launched latest version of its popular compact hatchback, Celerio and called it "the most fuel-efficient petrol car" of the country. The car offers a mileage of 26.68 km per litre.
Powered by next-generation Dual Jet, Dual VVT K-Series engine with 'Idle Start-Stop' technology, the car is priced between Rs 4.99 lakh and Rs 6.94 lakh (ex-showroom price).
"The Indian automobile industry has witnessed an unprecedented shift owing to the pandemic which has given a special impetus to the need for personal mobility. India is primarily a small car market, with nearly 46 per cent of total passenger vehicle sales contributed by the hatchbacks," Maruti Suzuki India Managing Director and CEO, Kenichi Ayukawa, said.
"As a leading car manufacturer, it is our responsibility to drive the revival of the automobile industry. With the all-new Celerio, we endeavour to boost the most important passenger vehicle segment in the country," continued Ayukawa
