We have been regularly writing about Maruti Suzuki's plans of launching the new generation A-Star in India, which will replace both the existing A-Star and Zen Estilo in the country, now we have learned it from our sources that this vehicle might be christened as the 'Celerio' in few markets including India. This is the same vehicle showcased at the Thailand International Motor Show in November 2013 as the Suzuki A-Wind concept.

Suzuki has been already using 'Celerio' as a suffix with the Alto badge in select international markets. Expected to make its Indian debut at the upcoming 2014 Indian Auto Expo, the production-ready Maruti Suzuki Celerio could also be launched at the event, with deliveries starting right after the Expo. Taking its design cues directly from the A-Wind concept, the Celerio will have new curves and dynamic dimensions, making it look sportier, taller and more outgoing than its predecessor. The new hatchback will measure around 3600mm, 1600mm and 1540mm in length, width and height, respectively.

The new Maruti Suzuki Celerio will sport the existing 1.0-litre K-series engine, found under the current A-Star with an option of a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission gearbox. This engine is capable of churning out a maximum power output of 67bhp and 90Nm of peak torque. The company is also working on a small diesel engine, which might be added to the car when it's tested properly.
