Suzuki’s all-new Celerio, which replaces the popular Alto mini hatchback in South Africa 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.

The Celerio is the first Suzuki model to be fitted with the marque’s new automated manual gearbox, which allows clutchless operation of a manual gearbox without the energy losses usually associated with conventional torque converter-based automatic transmissions.

The Celerio runs on 14-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers while 14-inch alloys are an added-cost option. In both instances, the wheels are shod with 165/70 R14 tyres.

The new Celerio is powered by a lively, economical 1,0-litre three-cylinder engine. Maximum power output is 55 kW, together with a torque peak of 90 Nm, which may sound modest, but is ample for propelling the lightweight Celerio off the mark with enthusiasm. A five-speed manual gearbox is the default choice.
