Designed to replace both the Splash and Alto, the Celerio is Suzuki’s new budget city car. It will arrive in UK showrooms in February 2015 and will be available in two trim grades, the SZ3 priced at £7,999 and the SZ4 at £8,999.
Standard specification for the SZ3 includes six airbags (Driver, passenger, side and curtain), ESP, air conditioning, alloy wheels, DAB Radio, CD Tuner, USB, Bluetooth connectivity and remote central locking.
The SZ4 grade adds polished alloy wheels, rear electric windows, front fog lamps, body coloured door mirrors and chrome front grille.
The Celerio measures 3,600mm long and 1,600mm wide with a 2,425mm wheelbase, and has a luggage capacity of 254 liters.
The European version of the Celerio will launch with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol unit delivering 67hp or 68PS returning CO2 emissions of 99g/km and 65.7mpg UK (4.3l/100km) on the combined cycle.
Suzuki said that it would add a new, unidentified engine that incorporates a star-stop system to the range in the summer of 2015, offering a higher combined fuel economy of 78.4 mpg UK (3.6l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 84g/km. Also available in the summer will be the brand’s newly developed Auto Gear Shift (AGS) transmission.
