The Celerio, Suzuki’s all-new global compact City car will go on sale in the UK from February next year and is priced at just £7,999 for the highly equipped SZ3 model and £8,999 for the SZ4.
Suzuki is well known as the small car experts and Celerio offers a compact car ease of drive while providing an elevated driving position, interior space that surpasses most conventional A-segment cars as well a class leading luggage capacity of 254L.
Standard specification highlights for the Celerio 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 even higher equipped SZ4 model adds polished alloy wheels, rear electric windows, front fog lamps, body coloured door mirrors and chrome front grille.
During design, Suzuki aimed for a resolution of the contradictory elements of retaining interior space within a compact body. By going back to basics in development and reviewing the body structure, Suzuki has succeeded in delivering a roomy and comfortable interior within a compact body measuring just 3,600mm in length and a width of 1,600mm. Celerio has a turning circle of just 9.4 metres too making it one of the most manoeuvrable in its class.
A height of 1,540mm and a non-slanting roofline allows greater headroom for occupants. The 2,425mm long wheelbase provides a tandem distance of 743mm which gives plenty of space in the cabin for five occupants.
Celerio offers low CO2 emissions of 99g/km and 65.7mpg on the EC combined cycle from its 1.0-litre three cylinder 68PS engine. In the Summer of 2015 a new engine will be available offering even higher fuel economy of 78.4 mpg and CO2 emissions that fall to just 84g/km thanks to the introduction of Suzuki’s new Dualjet engine technology. This engine will also incorporate a stop start facility when stationary.
Also available in the summer will be Suzuki’s newly developed Auto Gear Shift (AGS). This system features an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator positioned at the top of the transmission that operates the gearshift and clutch automatically.
With AGS, the driver can enjoy the effortless driving of an automatic, particularly in City traffic, but without any loss in fuel efficiency or increase in CO2 emissions that would normally be the case with a conventional torque converter equipped automatic transmission.
A unique feature of the Suzuki AGS is a low speed ‘creep’ facility which allows the car to move in gear without the accelerator being applied, ideal in slow traffic and when parking. * ESP is a registered trademark of Daimler AG.
