Maruti's Celerio pass the barke tests conducted by Autocar India
Autocar India’s emergency braking tests are normally conducted from 80kph to a standstill, however for in this we raised the speed to 130kph or 80mph to match the parameters of Autocar UK’s full-force braking test, which resulted in brake failure in the UK car.
However, the Maruti Celerio took 77.18 meters and 5.84 seconds to smoothly come to a halt from 130kph and while these figures are not segment best, the Celerio’s ABS
-equipped brakes worked reliably even after multiple tests.
Though the Indian made Celerios are not affected by the recall, Maruti is understood to be conducting its own investigation just to be sure.
