The A2 segment Celerio fuel efficiency stands at 23.1 kmpl as per ARAI for both, auto gear shift (AT) and the MT. Maruti is banking on competitive pricing not just in the segment but also in reducing the price gap between Manual and Automatic transmission variants, which in many instances influences a buyer to purchase manual transmission cars.
Maruti Celerio is offered in 6 variants, including two with Auto Gear Shift. Power comes from a K-next petrol engine. Mated with this is the Auto Gear Shift for improved drive experience. Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) is simply put an intelligent actuating unit to facilitate effortless with Auto Gear Shift. So, you now pay just a wee bit more than MT vehicles and enjoy bits of AT. You’re looking at 2 pedal so the driver doesn’t at all times have to concentrate on synchronising between clutch and gear shift lever in start-stop traffic conditions.
