The next-generation Suzuki Celerio is right around the corner with an official reveal expected to take place next month. New patent images suggest that the new model will be a bit bigger than the current offering.
As reported by Autocar India, the next Maruti Suzuki Celerio appears to be quite the evolution of the current model. While it will remain the brand’s smallest offering, the subcompact hatch will do away with its angular proportions and embrace a rounder design as seen on the S-Presso and Swift.
Distinctive design cues include rounder headlamps, a more dynamic front bumper and grille and sportier alloy wheels. Similar cues will be noticed at the rear as well. Overall, the patent images display a car that is both longer and wider than the current model.
Within the cabin, we can expect the next Suzuki Celerio to boast an all-new dashboard design but parts such as the window switches, seats, infotainment screen and control stalks will be sourced from other models. Inside sources say that the entry-level model will in fact come standard with 14-inch alloy wheels rather than steel ones.
Where power is concerned, the Suzuki Celerio will retain its naturally aspirated 1,0-litre three-cylinder engine with a power output of 50 kW and 90 N.m of torque. Together with this, it is understood that the brand’s larger naturally aspirated 1,2-litre four-pot mill will also be introduced. As seen in the Swift and Ignis, this unit produces 61 kW and 113 N.m of torque. Transmission option are expected to consist of the five-speed manual and automated manual gearboxes.
