Review: the 2015 Suzuki Celerio

December 4, 2014

It’s final – the Alto and the Splash are out and the Maruti Suzuki Celerio is in. In 2015, the Japanese company will end production on the other two models in their city car A-segment and focus on the Celerio. The news was announced this earlier this year, when the automaker revealed the Celerio, which combines the finest features of the Splash and the Alto – spaciousness and economy respectively. Sounds pretty amazing, right? Find out more in today’s review of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio.

Design

City cars are big news this year, and the Maruti Celerio gives you something none of its competitors give you: space. The way this car opens up on the inside can only be described as Tardis-like; it is quite literally bigger on the inside. No matter where you sit in this car, you have a sea of leg space virtually unheard of in a city car. There’s also a ton of headroom and trunk space totalling 254 litres – and we have no idea how they managed to fit it all in. Its doors open to a full 90 degrees, offering incredibly easy access to the car – perfect for helping the little ones buckle up. Complete with high seating, which offers a classic city car view, the Suzuki Celerio is a car very much fit for purpose.

Performance

The Suzuki Celerio handles like you want a city car to handle – lightly and quickly. It has a very low turning circle and the 1.0litre petrol engine offers all the speed you’ll ever need in the city. The car’s exceptional fuel economy of 65.7mpg is one of the Celerio’s main selling points – and Suzuki has announced that an even more economical engine will join the line-up in 2015. At the same time, Suzuki will introduce a new optional automatic gearbox called ‘AGS’ – which supposedly has no fuel consumption penalty – making the Maruti Celerio one superior city car.

Features

With a car designed to be affordable to buy and economical to run, we didn’t expect the Suzuki Celerio to be able to compete in the kid department – but we were wrong. The Celerio comes with a respectable suite of equipment – with alloy wheels, air con and Bluetooth all coming as standard. And if safety is a priority for you, the car also comes with stability control and no less than six airbags. Not too shabby.

Suzuki is yet to confirm a UK price for the Celerio – but we expect this sexy city car to come in below the £9,000 mark.
