Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG Price: Maruti Suzuki recently introduced the new generation Celerio in the Indian market. Now the company has also launched its factory fitted CNG version. It has been offered only in the VXi variant. According to the company, the Celerio CNG has a proven mileage of 35.60 km/kg, which makes it one of the most fuel-efficient CNG cars available in the market.

The Celerio CNG gets the same dual jet, dual VVT K-Series 1.0-litre K10C naturally-aspirated petrol engine as its regular variant. While the petrol-only model generates 65 horsepower and 89 Nm of torque, the factory-fitted S-CNG version churns out 56 horsepower and 82.1 Nm of peak torque.

Here, the engine only comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox while the regular petrol variant also gets AMT (AGS). The new Celerio CNG has a boot space of 60-litres. The new 2022 Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG has been launched in India today at Rs 6.58 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.

Interestingly, the S-CNG variant in the old-gen Celerio contributed to more than 30 per cent of the total sales. The all-new Celerio S-CNG with new 3D organic sculpted design, energized and spacious cabin and S-CNG technology will offer the customers an affordable, safe and high performance green vehicle.

The company says that customers will appreciate the great fuel efficiency of the all-new Celerio S-CNG. The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG will take on the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios CNG, Hyundai Santro CNG and the upcoming Tata Tiago i-CNG. Tata Tiago CNG is also to be launched this week.
