Maruti updates Celerio base variants with safety features like dual airbags and ABS as optional

Maruti Celerio safety features

In a bid to make its vehicles safer, India’s leading auto maker, Maruti Suzuki had been equipping its models with important safety features. After introducing dual airbags and ABS as optional features on base variants of Swift, Dzire and WagonR, the company has now added the safety features like ABS and airbags on the base trims of the Celerio. Launched in February 2014, these features were available only on the top end Z variants of the hatchback, but the company is now offering dual airbags and ABS as an optional choice on L and V trims as well.

Maruti Suzuki has confirmed that the CNG version of the hatchback VXi (O) gets dual airbags only missing on the ABS feature and the LXi (O) variant will soon get the AMT gearbox. In less than 2 years after the launch, MSI has sold around 1.3 lakh units of the hatchback in the country with average monthly sales of 7500 units. The Celerio hatchback comes loaded with creature comforts like steering mounted audio controls, Bluetooth telephony, MID unit and tilt steering.

Moreover, the hatchback is available in two engine choices, a 1.0 litre petrol motor and Maruti’s very own 800cc diesel engine. Apart from these, the hatchback is also available in CNG version; making the Celerio the only vehicle in its segment to be offered in three fuel options. Along with automated manual transmission, the company also offers a five-speed manual tranny on the Celerio range. With almost all the vehicles from Maruti getting ABS and dual front airbags as standard, we hope that base variants of the Alto 800 and Alto K10 also get the same features in the forthcoming weeks.
