Maruti Suzuki has launched the CNG version of the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio in India. The new CNG variant of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes with a starting price of 6.58 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio is a small hatchback from Maruti Suzuki and has been touted as the most fuel-efficient petrol car in the country. This means the running cost of the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio is one of the most affordable.
With the launch of the CNG variant of the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio, the running cost of the hatchback will become even more affordable.
Apart from that, with the ever-tightening emission regulations in metro cities, opting for the CNG variant makes even more sense as CNG cars produce far fewer pollutants and are highly unlikely to be banned anytime soon.
Maruti claims that the company has witnessed 22 per cent CAGR growth for its CNG vehicles in the last five years. This means, more people are favouring CNG vehicles with time.
1. Design & Features
The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio looks identical to the conventional petrol-powered Maruti Suzuki Celerio from every angle.
Since the CNG version of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio is available in 'VXi' trim, it comes with features such as Day Night IRVM, 60:40 split rear seats, power windows, central door locking, electrically adjustable ORVMs, and a few more.
The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG uses the same 1.0-litre K10C series engine that has been tuned to run on both petrol and CNG fuel.
However, power and torque figures are slightly down at 56bhp at 5,300 rpm and 82.1Nm of torque at 3,400 rpm, which is around 9.7bhp and 6.9Nm less than the petrol-powered variant of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio.
The CNG variant of the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio also comes equipped with a 60-litre CNG tank.
In terms of safety, the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes with a factory-fitted CNG kit integrated by experts into the mainframe of the car on the manufacturing floor. It also has a special leak-proof design according to the company.
Apart from that, the CNG variant of the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes equipped with safety features such as two airbags, speed-sensitive auto door lock, ABS, Immobilizer, child-proof rear door locks, reverse parking sensors and many more.
As mentioned earlier, prices for the CNG variant of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio starts from Rs 6.58 lakh (ex-showroom, India). While this price may seem high at a glance, it is worth mentioning that the CNG variant of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio is available as 'VXi' trim level, lower trim levels could be introduced at later stages.
Thoughts About The CNG Variant Of The Maruti Suzuki Celerio
The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio is already touted as the most fuel-efficient petrol car in the country and with the launch of the CNG variant of the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio, the running cost of the hatchback will become even more affordable than ever before.
However, Maruti could have offered the CNG variant of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio in lower 'LXi' trim to make it even more affordable.
