Dissimilar to the yesterday’s standard Celerio, the Suzuki CelerioX 2018 gets a distinctive color motif: the “X-Theme.” Correspondingly, the front grille and sides of front bumpers are beautified with a blacked-out finish. In the meantime, high gloss black color covers the fog lamps bezels, B-pillars, roof garnishes and 14-inch alloys to further highlight the Celerio’s sportiness. In addition to that, protective body cladding can also be found on the front bumper, rear bumper and wheel arches.

Not only does the blacked-out theme overshadow the exterior, it also dominates the Suzuki CelerioX 2018 interior. However, brightening the hatchback cabin is striking white accents that harmoniously create necessary contrast. On top of that, black seats even feature orange stripes, bringing the freshness from the outer to the inner.
When it comes to the hardware, the CelerioX, like the standard version, runs a 1.0L 3-cylinder K10B engine capable of churning out 67 PS @ 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm @ 3,500 rpm. For Indian market, the engine comes paired to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automated manual.
