Celerio - the all new city car from Suzuki

Following its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Celerio, Suzuki's all new global compact City car will go on sale in the UK from February 2015.

  • On sale in the UK from February 2015
  • "A+compact" car that exceeds A segment standards gives class leading interior space.
  • Six airbags and ESP fitted as standard safety equipment for UK models.
  • Air conditioning and DAB radio fitted as standard.
  • Class leading luggage capacity of 254 litres.

Suzuki are well known as the small car experts. Celerio has retained their trademark compact car ease of drive, while providing an elevated driving position, interior space that surpasses most conventional A-segment cars, and also a class leading luggage capacity of 254L.

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 of just 3,600mm and width of 1,600mm. All these elements have been packed into a dynamically-styled package.

A height of 1,530mm 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.

Standard specification highlights for the range will include six airbags (Driver, passenger, side and curtain), ESP*, air conditioning, alloy wheels, DAB Radio, CD Tuner, USB and Bluetooth connectivity. Full details including grading structure will be announced by the end of the year.

Celerio offers low CO2 emissions of 99g/km and fuel consumption of 65.7mpg on the EC combined cycle. In the Summer of 2015 a new engine will be available offering even higher fuel economy and CO2 emissions that fall to just 84g/km thanks to the introduction of Suzuki's new Dualjet engine technology.

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.

Celerio will be available in six colours of which five are optional metallic finish and one a solid colour.
