Light, precise controls, a comfy low-speed ride, and enough poke for motorways are crucial. Inside, we want generous space and reasonable quality – and it all
needs to come at a competitive price.
IT WOULD BE easy to dismiss the Celerio and its quirky looks. But never judge a book by its cover; the Celerio makes a superbly well-rounded city car choice. Suzuki’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is a peach. It packs a modest 67bhp but, because the Celerio is light, it’s easily strong enough for town work and doesn’t even feel too out of its depth on the motorway. Drive sensibly and the 57.8mpg we saw in our real-world True MPG testing is achievable.
The way the Celerio rides and handles should also be commended. It isn’t quite as supple or agile as a Skoda Citigo or Kia Picanto, but it’s close, and those rivals cost considerably more to buy.
Great value for money is even more apparent inside. The Celerio offers genuine space for four adults and the weekly shop, its tall windows provide a brilliant view out in all directions and Suzuki throws in everything you would realistically need – even on entry-level SZ2 trim.
All things considered, the Celerio is a serious amount of car for the cash.
