Review Summary:

The is a city car built by the Japanese manufacturer and has been around since 1979. If you’re Indian or you’ve ever visited India, you have most probably experienced its evolution. The Maruti Suzuki 800 that matured into the Suzuki Alto, has now past adolescence and is in its seventh generation sporting the new badge.

Pros

Quirky exterior styling and interior storage space.

Cons

Interior could utilize something more than just hard plastics.

Looks

If you’re expecting a jaw dropping, head turning outer shell, then look elsewhere, because the Suzuki Celerio doesn’t offer that. What it does offer, are headlamps shaped like water droplets and a simplistic design which connotes fun more than anything else.

Feels

If you’re one of those people who are allergic to plastic, then stay away from the Suzuki Celerio, because in addition to the switches being made of hard plastic, so are the dashboard, door panels and sun visors. Apart from that, the cabin is comfortable enough for 4 adults and packs in a decent number of cubby holes to store all sorts of paraphanelia.

Engineering

Following extensive wind tunnel testing, the engineers and designers at Suzuki have created a body that allows air to flow smoothly over the five door , which in turn provides better fuel economy and a quieter ride.

On offer

Under its diminutive hood sits a 1.0 litre engine that puts out just 67 horsepower and 87 Nm of torque. Mated to a 4 speed automatic transmission, the Celerio is definitely something to consider if you’re a student or a simply on a tight budget.

Verdict

Small engines aren’t exactly the preferred choice in our part of the world, but with traffic on the rise, cars like the Suzuki Celerio make a lot of sense. With a price tag that is in line with the Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto, it all boils to brand preference, really.
