The Celerio-X looks noticeably different from each and every angle out side and inside. It looks more flashy and has taller stance. However, the car misses few design cues, which could have made it more bolder and pure crossover avatar. The front dual tone bumper houses the Head lamps and at the bottom it houses the fog lamp within the blackout area. One can clearly notice the absence of chrome in the front grill which again feels bit disappointment.
The OVRMs are blacked along with the roof rails, side cladding, handle bars and 14 inch alloy wheels. The rear bumper has dual tone treatment in skid plate to give it look more like a crossover.
The interiors are too taken care off with a all black interiors and even seats are too have black color with orange accents. Apart from this it comes with an option of side airbag and ABS which are optional and not as standard fitments, rest all remains same as its precedor.
