New Suzuki Celerio – The extra large small car (gallery)

Suzuki’s all-new Celerio is due to hit showroom floors around the country in the next few days.

Suzuki Celerio

The Celerio replaces the popular Suzuki Alto and has been created to provide buyers of small cars with a generous and enjoyable motoring experience.

The newcomer proves that compact doesn’t need to be cramped, and that space and style don’t have to cost a fortune.

Developed for world markets, and already a top seller in India, the Celerio reflects Suzuki’s unrivalled expertise as a producer of compact cars and SUVs with a concept that combines the user-friendly dimensions and wieldy road manners of a small hatchback with a surprisingly spacious interior and a voluminous luggage compartment.

At the same time, the Celerio’s efficient drivetrain delivers zesty dynamics, combined with economical fuel consumption.

Its low CO2 exhaust emissions also endow the new Celerio with impressive environmental credentials.

Measuring just 3.6 metres long and 1.6 metres wide, the new Celerio is unmistakably a member of the mini hatchback clan, making it the perfect choice for zipping through city traffic or squeezing into tight parking spaces.

However, the impression of space when stepping into the cockpit of the Celerio is quite at odds with its compact footprint.

One of the reasons is a height of 1.53 metres, which ensures an unusual level of headroom.

And thanks to an extended wheelbase, short overhangs and space-saving suspension, interior space is maximised – as is the luggage compartment…
