The 2020 Suzuki Celerio is the smallest and cheapest model of the Japanese brand. The 2020 Suzuki Celerio is a city car manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki. It is manufactured by Pak Suzuki Motors in Pakistan as a new version of the Cultus, Maruti Suzuki in India, and Suzuki Motor Thailand in Rayong Province Thailand. It replaces the A-Star and Zen Estilo and is marketed to compete with the Tata Indica, Honda Brio, Hyundai i10, Ford Figo, Chevrolet Beat, and Nissan Micra Active. Suzuki unveiled the Celerio at the Auto Expo, after being previewed as the wind concept model at the Thailand International Motor Expo. The Celerio has twelve versions available in India.
The Celerio was Pakistan’s first car with AutoGear Shift technology. The Celerio is India’s first car with an automatic transmission called EZ Drive. The gasoline engine is a Suzuki K-Series K10B’s latest review called K-Next. The gearbox is basically a manual gearbox with a transmission control unit (TCU) that drives the hydraulics to shift the gears.
The Suzuki Celerio was launched in India with six variants. The hatchback is currently available in petrol and CNG fuel options. The Celerio X is an excellent variant of the Celerio with a more sporty look, equipped with AGS technology, striking X-graphics and grille design. Suzuki Celerio was launched on the European market, with its European premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. However, the British, Irish, Australian, and New Zealand markets are produced in Suzuki’s Rayong manufacturing plant in Thailand.
2020 Suzuki Celerio Interior
The Celerio dashboard is relatively easy to pack, thanks to the simple rotary knob for the heater. As with most other city cars, the interior of the Celerio is built from hard and unstable materials. Even by the relatively low standards of the city car class, the interior of the Celerio certainly looks and feels cheap. Everything looks pretty stitched together, but the plastic is not in an attractive way and the steering wheel feels very good. The doors also sound tiny and hollow when you close them instead of closing with a reassuring down.
The infotainment system of the Celerio does have a small screen, but it is monochrome and difficult to read, which makes it quite difficult to set up the radio or find the person you want to call in your contacts. Go to SZ2 entry-level and you will get a DAB radio and a CD player. With an SZ3 decoration upgrade, Bluetooth allows you to legally make and receive calls, and a USB connection to charge your phone and play music stored on it by the sticky, dual-sound system.
2020 Suzuki Celerio Engine
The only engine is 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol with 67 hp. It may sound a bit weak, but it’s enough for a car as small and light as the Celerio. The acceleration offered is unlikely to make your heart beat faster, but the car does not feel too fast on its faster A-roads and highways. As you would expect, however, it rather feels like home in the city. The Celerio diesel is powered by Suzuki’s first indigenously developed two-cylinder engine that delivers 46 hp of maximum power and 125 Nm of peak torque. It also promises to deliver a segment-best mileage of 27.62 km/l.
2020 Suzuki Celerio Safety
The Suzuki Celerio scored 3 out of 5 stars when it was tested by Euro NCAP in 2014 and 4 out of 5 by ANCAP. ANCAP and Euro NCAP have received criticism in which they claim that they underlined the Celerio relative to other cars that had fewer airbags or that performed worse in accident tests. Child safety was more credible, but the Citigo scored better. However, the Celerio could be better than pedestrians to protect pedestrians. The basic version of the Celerio in India does not contain airbags and the body of the vehicle was considered ‘unstable’ by the Global NCAP. Stability control and a tire pressure monitoring system are standard on all versions of the Suzuki Celerio. Unlike opponents like the Citigo, however, there is no option to add 2020 Suzuki Celerio automatic emergency brake.
