A week after announcing a similar facility for all models of Swift and Dzire, Maruti Suzuki said it will offer the option of airbags and anti-skid braking on all models of compact hatchback Celerio, including the base version.
“By offering safety features like airbags for driver and co-driver, and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) from the base variant onwards in Celerio, we are making it more attractive for customers. I am happy that we are able to offer these safety features on Celerio much ahead of regulations,” said R S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India.
Launched in 2014, Celerio was the first car in India to be equipped with Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology — a cheaper alternative to continuously variable transmission or CVT .
The technology became a hit with customers as it offers convenience of driving, especially in heavy traffic conditions, at an attractive price.
Celerio is also the first car from Maruti Suzuki to get the compact diesel engine and the only hatch in its segment to come in three fuel options (Petrol, Diesel and CNG).
