In Other News
Earlier, reports suggested that Maruti Suzuki would back diesel engines. But now, as it stands, the company will most likely cancel the plan. And hence, we won’t see the new 1.5-litre diesel engine for the Indian market. The much-awaited new Celerio is still being tested wearing heavy camouflage. The hatchback is likely to make its debut next month. India top-selling hatchback, Swift, recently crossed the 2.5 million sales figure. Swift has also been a customer favourite since it was first launched in 2005 and continues with the same demand today.
