Car market leader Maruti Suzuki India Limited launched its much awaited compact car, Celerio, with the revolutionary Auto Gear Shift here today. With fuel efficiency same as the Manual transmission, the revolutionary Auto Gear Shift, christened EZ Drive, is all set to redefine the car driving experience on Indian roads. Interestingly, Auto Gear Shift on the Celerio is a first for India amongst passenger cars.
Poised to stir the A2 segment Celerio is a complete package full of pleasant surprises. Among several benefits, Celerio comes with a best in class fuel efficiency of 23.1 kmpl, for both, Auto Gear Shift and the Manual Transmission variants.
Celerio is launched at an attractive price. This price puts to rest any argument that superior technology is expensive. Often, the wide price gap between Manual and Automatic transmission variants prompts buyers to settle for manual transmission cars.
With Celerio, the Company is keen to change these perceptions and raise the technology bar.
Unveiling the Celerio, Mr Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO said, “Maruti Suzuki has always believed in offering cars that set new benchmarks of technology, style and overall costs in India. Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the latest example that brings path breaking Auto Gear Shift technology in cars for the first time and that too, in country’s most popular compact car segment. The Celerio promises a new, convenient and fun to drive experience, with top class fuel efficiency, at a highly attractive price and low maintenance cost. We are confident that Celerio will soon become a popular choice among customers as they enjoy the benefits that this new technology brings.”
The Celerio is stylish on the outside and has roomy, spacious & functional interiors with a large boot. Offered in six variants, including two with Auto Gear Shift, the Celerio is powered by the high performing K-next petrol engine.
Auto Gear Shift: Harbinger of a revolution
Mated with the K-next engine, the Auto Gear Shift is Suzuki Motor Corporation’s newly developed technology that promises superior drive experience to the users. Powered by an intelligent actuating unit, driving is effortless with Auto Gear Shift.
Auto Gear Shift is a departure from the traditional configuration, as it has only two pedals. The two pedal drive relieves the driver from synchronising between clutch and gear shift lever and brings immense value in start-stop traffic conditions.
