Suzuki delivers a citycar that might just appeal to those who view spending on cars as cash down the drain. Jonathan Crouch reports.
The Suzuki Celerio aims to offer plenty of interior space, high economy and super-low pricing. Such attempts are usually doomed to failure, but the Celerio, with its perky 1.0-litre three cylinder engines, big spec list and optional AGS transmission, looks to be made of all the right stuff.
Suzuki has had a tough time in the past few years and when pressed, its UK importers tend to hold up their hands and put the blame squarely on global exchange rates. Yes, those same exchange rates that saw Daihatsu pull out of the UK and Subaru discover that the relative strength of the yen versus the pound made its cars as expensive as some BMWs and Audis. We have every sympathy for Suzuki. Subaru were pretty much hosed for a while because all of their manufacturing base was in Japan, so they bore the full brunt of the fiscal fluctuations. Suzuki has boxed a bit cleverer and has leveraged its longstanding association with Maruti in India to bring us the Celerio citycar. Can it compete with some very sophisticated rivals in the UK? More to the point, does it actually need to?
The core engine in the Celerio range is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit developing a total of 66bhp at 6,000rpm and 89Nm of torque at 3,500rpm, so you're going to need to give the throttle pedal a bit of treatment to get anywhere. Especially if you opt for it with the brand's efficient AGS automatic gearbox. 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 ease driving of an automatic 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. There's even 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. The alternative Celerio powerplant is another 1.0-litre petrol unit with the same output, this one using Suzuki's more efficient Dualjet technology. Power goes to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox at first, but we suspect that most UK buyers will want to talk to their dealer about matching the Dualjet engine technology to Suzuki's Auto Gear Shift (AGS).
The Celerio probably isn't going to turn too many heads, being a fairly generic-looking citycar in the modern mould. That's not to say its styling lacks merit, just that it's nothing too adventurous. The most notable flourishes are probably the deeply sculpted flanks, with an arcing swage line that runs just below the door handles. The front grille is unusual, with a three-bar design that kinks upwards at each extremity into the big headlight pods. The body measures just 3,600mm from stem to stern and 1,600mm wide, so parking it shouldn't present too much of a difficulty. A height of 1,530mm and a non-slanting roofline affords respectable 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. The boot is vast for a citycar, with a capacity of 254-litres.
Built in Thailand, the Celerio is clearly targeting the value end of the citycar market. Prices start at around £8,000 for the SZ2 version, rising to around £11,500 for the plushest SZ4 with AGS auto transmission. If you're happy with the mid-range SZ3 (around £10,000), then your dealer will offer you the option of Suzuki's more efficient 'Dualjet' 1.0-litre petrol engine - for a price premium of around £600. If instead, you had your eye on the top SZ4, there's the advantage that this trim level comes with the option of efficient AGS automatic transmission - for an £800 premium. This system features an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator positioned at the top of the gearbox that operates the gearshift and clutch automatically. Standard specification highlights for the Celerio SZ3 include six airbags (Driver, passenger, side and curtain), ESP stability control, 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. The Celerio is offered in six colours, of which five are optional metallic finish and one a standard solid colour.
The standard 1.0-litre triple engine makes some very respectable figures, eking 65.7 miles from a gallon of unleaded and emitting just 99g/km of carbon dioxide. Go for the AGS-equipped automatic model and there's no running cost penalty. If you're happy with a stick-shift and don't mind a modest £600 price premium, then Suzuki's more modern Dualjet 1.0-litre petrol engine is a better bet in this car. This engine incorporates twin fuel injectors for improved fuel economy; Dualjet technology positions the fuel injectors very close to the engine inlet valves and allows for a finer fuel mixture which in turn provides a more effective transfer into the engine. This unit also incorporates a stop start facility when stationary. In Dualjet form, this Suzuki's combined cycle fuel consumption improves to 78.5mpg, while the CO2 return is enhanced to 84g/km. That'll make such a Celerio the cleanest and most fuel efficient new car on sale for less than £10,000.
The Suzuki Celerio has to some extent been overshadowed in the citycar segment by state of the art city slickers like the Volkswagen Up and the Renault Twingo, but it was never really designed to compete with the more high-end offerings in this sector. It's easy to overlook this Japanese brand's expertise in this class - and the very respectable sales figures that it tends to rack up with products like this one, thanks to super-low emissions and clever transmission. If you want a car that is utterly no-nonsense, easy to use and which we'd bet will prove to be extremely reliable, the Celerio demonstrates that these qualities needn't cost you the earth. The fact that it's well-equipped and is incredibly cheap to run is just the icing on the cake. It might not seem an obvious hit on first acquaintance, but give this one some thought. We think it might actually give you most of what you need for less than you'd expected to pay.
Suzuki's Celerio citycar may well make more of an impact than its predecessors. June Neary checks it out
Small cars are very much in vogue at the moment. They're the simplest, most effective way to achieve the dual goals of minimising motoring costs and cutting vehicle emissions, so both manufacturers and consumers are paying them more attention than at any time in the past. It's into this state of affairs that Suzuki has pitched its Celerio, a compact citycar with the tough task of vying for attention against some very high profile rivals. Suzuki is strongly represented in the supermini market with its Swift and the Celerio slots in below this offering. Its aim is to replicate some of the Swift's sporty flavour in a more compact package that's also strong on economy, practical and easy to use around town. Sounds like a recipe for more success but with the likes of Fiat's Panda, Ford's Ka, Toyota's Aygo and Renault's Twingo targeting a similar market, the Celerio will need to be right on its game.
It was once enough for a citycar to be small and efficient. If it looked like a shrunken Transit van and had a wow-factor equivalent to a bag of potatoes, nobody much cared. Today, as small cars become a more mainstream choice for urban motorists, there's a demand for them to display a lot more individuality and style. With the Celerio, Suzuki has risen to this challenge, creating a look it says 'exudes urban energy'. You can be the judge of exactly what it's exuding but I thought the styling was definitely distinctive. deeply sculpted flanks, with an arcing swage line that runs just below the door handles. The front grille is unusual, with a three-bar design that kinks upwards at each extremity into the big headlight pods. And inside? Well, I was told that the space for front seat occupants had been 'prioritised' with this design and so it should be but that doesn't bode well for those in the back. Still, the fact is that most citycars are used to carry more than two people rarely, if ever, and so long as the rear seats can cope with a few shopping bags and a tattered road atlas, they'll do the job. The Celerio's C-Pillars are extremely thick and this may result in visibility issues when parking but the interior itself looks to have the requisite youthful feel with the curvy lines of the dash and the door inserts. There's also a healthy amount of storage capacity. A height of 1,530mm and a non-slanting roofline affords respectable headroom for occupants. The boot is vast for a tiny urban-orientated hatch, with a capacity of 254-litres. I struggle to fit things like a pushchair into the trunks of most citycars in this class, but that wasn't a problem here.
The Celerio's 1.0-litre petrol engine looks ideal for a compact urban vehicle. The 3-cylinder unit musters 66bhp - which doesn't sound thrilling. Still in such a light car, it's enough to enable it to cover the 0-62mph sprint in 14 seconds. Stick at it and a top speed of 96mph is also attainable. The Celerio is just 3600mm long and that helps it achieve a super-tight turning circle that should be ideal for manoeuvring into tight parking spaces or executing the odd cheeky U-turn. Suzuki's Swift supermini never fails to impress with its sharp handling and the Celerio aims to replicate that big fun factor within its more compact package. The MacPherson strut front suspension is tuned to give the rigidity and fast response required in a nimble small car and at the rear, Suzuki's clever 3-link rigid axel suspension is used. This set-up is also tuned to deliver firm, stable ride but its compact design is a further benefit in a small car like the Celerio.
The citycar sector looks set for boom times ahead on the back of motorists downsizing their vehicles in a quest to cut costs. The Suzuki Celerio will be up against some stiff competition for these sales but this manufacturer's small car expertise and aggressive pricing policy should count for something. Prices start at around £8,000 for the SZ3 version, rising to around £9,000 for the plusher SZ4. If you're happy with the SZ3, then your dealer will offer you the option of Suzuki's more efficient 'Dualjet' 1.0-litre petrol engine - for a price premium of around £500. Standard specification highlights for the Celerio SZ3 include six airbags (Driver, passenger, side and curtain), ESP stability control, air conditioning, alloy wheels, DAB Radio, CD Tuner, USB, Bluetooth connectivity and remote central locking. The ordinary 1.0-litre petrol engine can return an impressive 65.7mpg on the combined cycle along with 99g/km emissions - whether you choose manual or AGS automatic transmission. These are figures the more modern Dualjet variant improves to 78.5mpg and 84g/km. It's greener than Robin Hood on a rollercoaster.
The choice now at the disposal of UK citycar buyers is quite something and the Suzuki Celerio looks like being another useful addition to the field. Operating at the value for money end of the segment, its low costs and competitive pricing will be crucial to its success.
