Used Suzuki Celerio for sale
The Suzuki Celerio is a city car that's easy to drive and cheap to run. When it was released, the Celerio took the affordability of the Alto and merged it with the practicality of the Splash, replacing both models.
But Suzuki have ensured that the Celerio offers more than just being one of the lowest cost options on the market. Reasons to consider the Celerio as a used car purchase include:
- Spacious interior for its class
- Impressive boot space
- Uncomplicated engine line-up
- Good fuel economy
- Automatic and manual gearbox availability
Engines and Driving Experience
When searching for a used Celerio, you won't have the trouble of deciding which engine to choose as Suzuki have made that decision for you. A sole 1.0-litre petrol engine is available that produces 67bhp which, as you can probably tell, isn't the most dynamic to drive. 0 to 62mph takes 13.5 seconds with a manual gearbox and a sluggish 16.4 seconds with an automatic.
It's designed for city driving though, and when doing so it's easy to drive and naturally agile. Taking it out on the motorway is a different story however. The small engine needs to be worked hard to get up to and maintain speed, especially when loaded with luggage or passengers.
A major benefit is that you won't see yourself refuelling very often though thanks to impressive fuel economy figures of around 66mpg combined.
Practicality and Running Costs
Another area where the Celerio performs well is the area of practicality. There's more than enough head and legroom in the front and the rear isn't bad either. Five adults can fit if needed, but it may start to become uncomfortable on longer journeys.
Getting the weekly shop in the back won't prove to be a problem due to the 254-litre boot, which is nearing supermini levels of capacity. Dropping the rear seats increases overall room to 726 litres for the instances where you need the extra space. Five doors as standard also means your rear passengers won't have to clamber through a small space to get seated.
The Celerio's running costs help to further appeal as well. All models reside within insurance group 7 out of 50 and low cost servicing or maintenance can be carried out at any Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The interior is where the Celerio may be outclassed by its rivals. It's made up of cloth upholstery and hard plastics that are durable as opposed to luxurious. The no-frills approach isn't all bad though, as it means there's no complicated systems for you to get your head around and it does feel fairly well built.
Technology is limited as well compared to rivals, you'll have to do without modern features such as Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and satellite navigation. You can get Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and electric folding mirrors, but the infotainment system is prehistoric for today's standards and nowhere near as slick as modern systems.
Available safety equipment includes:
- ISOFIX child seat anchor points
- Electronic stability program (ESP)
- Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
- Driver, front passenger and side airbags
- Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS)
Is the Suzuki Celerio right for me?
The Suzuki Celerio is a cheap and cheerful vehicle that does without luxuries to offer a low cost package that's good on fuel and fairly practical.
If your budget can stretch, you'll be able to find more modernistic features on alternatives such as the Citroën C1 and SEAT Mii. Similar to the Celerio, the Ford KA+ offers almost supermini levels of practicality, while the Dacia Sandero is one of the best budget options on offer.
