Maruti Suzuki's tightly kept secret, the Celerio X, is out. The new Maruti Celerio facelift that was launched recently, previews the design language that the Celerio X will follow. Ahead of its launch, a few brochure scans of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X have surfaced on the interweb. The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio X will be available with eight trims unlike the regular Celerio which has close to 14 trims including the base LXi and CNG units. Maruti have added cladding to the Celerio to give it a SUV-like appearance. This cladding as well as new bumpers has resulted in increase of dimensions of the vehicle. The Maruti Suzuki Celerio X is 115mm longer, 35mm wider and 5mm taller than the regular car. Ground clearance though stays the same as the facelifted Maruti Suzuki Celerio at 120mm. Kerb weight too has gone up by 10kg depending on trims opted for. Tyre size offered with the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X is a standard 165/70R14. Those black alloys you see on the spy shots too are exclusive to the top-spec Celerio X MT (O). Like with the regular car, the Maruti Celerio X too boasts a standard driver airbag along with optional passenger airbag and ABS. Maruti dealerships have started accepting orders for the Celerio X at Rs 10,000.
