The test mule of the all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio has been spied testing

As seen in the spy images, the second-generation Celerio is completely draped with heavy camouflage concealing all the details. The test mule appears to be bigger than the current model, which is fairly compact. The wheelbase also seems to be longer but we won’t make any presumptions. 

The all-new Celerio hatchback is likely to be based on Suzuki’s new generation Heartect platform that underpins Maruti Suzuki’s new cars. This includes Maruti Suzuki WagonR, S-Presso, Swift and Baleno. The new 2020 Maruti Suzuki Celerio is expected to sport an upmarket cabin with better seats and better equipment.
