Celerio, Suzuki’s all new global city car, will go on sale in the UK from February 2015.
Suzuki says Celerio provides an elevated driving position, interior space that surpasses most conventional A-segment cars, and a class leading luggage capacity of 254 litres.
By going back to basics in development and reviewing the body structure, Suzuki says it has delivered a roomy and comfortable interior within a compact body of just 3,600mm and width of 1,600mm.
A height of 1,530mm and a non-slanting roofline allows greater headroom for occupants.
Standard specification highlights for the range will include six airbags, air conditioning, alloy wheels, DAB radio and CD player with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
Suzuki says Celerio offers CO2 emissions of 99g/km and fuel consumption of 65.7mpg on the EC combined cycle.
In summer 2015 a new engine will be available offering higher fuel economy and CO2 emissions of 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) which features an intelligent shift control actuator positioned at the top of the transmission that operates the gearshift and clutch automatically.
Celerio will be available in six colours of which five are optional metallic finish and one a solid colour.
The pricing structure is yet to be announced, however Suzuki has been promoting its predecessor, the Alto, from £5,999.
