Latest On Maruti CelerioX
The CelerioX is the Celerio’s tough cousin. Armed with a fiery orange paint shade, dollops of cladding and black alloy wheels – the X stands out quite a bit. Updates on the inside include an all-black theme with white accents, and orange highlights for the seats. There’s no change in the mechanicals compared to the regular hatchback; the 1.0-litre 68PS/90Nm motor does duty, paired with a 5-speed manual or AMT. With prices ranging from Rs 4.57 lakh to Rs 5.43 lakh, the X costs approximately Rs 8000 more vis-a-vis the Celerio.

Maruti CelerioX Highlights
In order to attract the young and enthusiastic customers, Maruti has added CelerioX in its product range with starting price of Rs 4.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The highlight of CelerioX edition is its racy exteriors accentuated by aggressive nose and chin. Maruti has very carefully used body cladding all around the CelerioX which adds to the visual bulk of the car. The interiors of CelerioX have also got their share of upgrades although there are no alterations in the engine and transmission department. The 998 cc, three-cylinder K-series petrol motor under the hood of CelerioX puts out 68 PS and 90 Nm and is mated to 5-speed manual as well as automatic transmission. The CelerioX is available in all the variants except the base LXi trim. In the Indian market, the CelerioX is up against the likes of Tata Tiago, Hyundai Eon, and Datsun Go and redi-GO among others.
Maruti CelerioX Exterior and Interior
The X-factor is certainly there. From just about every angle on the outside, the CelerioX is shouty. At the front, the dual-tone bumper, where the fog lamp housings sit within the glossy black section, and the absence of chrome lining on the grille make it stand out. On the sides, the ORVMs, door handles, door beading, 14-inch alloy wheels and the roof rails are all black in colour as well. There’s also heavy use of plastic cladding all around the car, including the wheel arches. The rear bumper flaunts a dual-tone treatment too but also has a faux skid plate to further liven up the exteriors. All in all, the CelerioX will click with someone who is on a tight budget but wants a car with a sporty and rugged dress on the outside.
The ‘sporty’ treatment continues on the inside as well. The all-black interior is accentuated with white-colour accents. The beige seat covers found in the standard Celerio have been ditched for black ones, which come with their own orange-coloured accents. On the features front, driver’s side airbag and seat belt reminder as standard. However, the safety tech can be upped in the recipe as the passenger side airbag and ABS are offered as optional extras in variants where they aren’t part of the standard kit. Nothing else has changed and that means you still get the flimsy but functional ergonomics inside.
Maruti CelerioX Specifications
No changes here. It is powered by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine that puts out a modest 68PS of power and 90Nm of torque. The same engine can be had with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed Auto Gear Shift unit, which is popularly known as automated manual transmission (AMT). Unfortunately, the CelerioX isn’t available with the CNG kit. As far as the mileage figure is concerned, Maruti Suzuki hasn’t revealed it yet. Nevertheless, it shouldn’t be too far away from the 23.1kmpl clocked for the standard Celerio.
Maruti CelerioX Variants
There are eight variants in total if you consider the optional safety pack and the AMT. Give or take, each variant of the CelerioX costs approximately Rs 8000 more than the corresponding variant from the standard lot. All the (O) variants get basic safety gadgets. That means dual airbags, front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters and ABS as standard. If want the funky black alloy wheels, only the ZXI (O) MT will fulfill that need. The rest of the lot gets black-coloured full wheel covers.
