2019 Maruti Celerio has been launched in Nepal for NRS 23.50 lakh. The popular compact hatchback brings more safety on the name of this yearly update while visual presence stays exactly similar to the older version. The safety package now includes ABS, dual airbags, driver and passenger seat belt reminder, speed warning system and reverse parking sensors. However, the brand still missed on passenger airbag in the lower spec-variants and those going for the optional variant can get both the airbags on all variants. The starting price for Celerio with dual front airbags is NRS 23.50 lakh.
The car is available with a single 1.0L, 3-cylinder petrol engine that is good for 69 HP at 6000 rpm and 90 Nm at 3500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT gearbox. The latter is great for heavy traffic as the owner will not feel the fatigue that comes from extensive gear changing and clutch operation in that condition. The availability of Maruti WagonR with a bigger engine around the price tag of Celerio (top-spec model) is the biggest restriction factor for the car. Buyers get a touchscreen infotainment system and 1.2L engine with 82 HP on the top-spec WagonR.
