Suzuki Philippines has rolled out the latest version of its compact car, the all-new Celerio, which boasts of a spacious interior, fuel-efficiency, and a pocket-friendly price.
Featuring an A+ compact build — a concept that steps up on the strengths and exceeds the limits of the A segment car by implementing the “small on the outside, big on the inside” idea, the all-new Celerio is 70mm higher and 10mm wider than the previous version. It has a legroom that is 28mm wider and 50mm longer. The Celerio also offers a 254-liter luggage capacity.
Powering the Celerio is a 1.0 liter, 3 cylinder DOHC 12V Engine that is 9kgs lighter compared to the previous version’s engine.
For fuel-efficiency, the K10B three-cylinder engine produces a maximum output of 67 hp @ 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm @3,500 rpm. It has the same level of aerodynamic performance as the previous model which also contributes to the car’s efficient fuel consumption.
The new model also boasts of an improved 5-speed manual transmission with 40% torque loss reduction for better fuel efficiency.
Suzuki also improved the Celerio’s suspension, which is 3.5 kgs lighter. Suzuki says the car’s rear torsion beam with coil spring makes a more comfortable and stable ride.
Equipped with electric power steering and electronic-controlled door lock and windows, the new Celerio model’s security features include an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), dual airbags, collapsible steering column, side impact beams, as well as the high mount stop lamp and defogger.
The Celerio also features Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology which has been implemented using lightweight impact-absorbing body using high-tensile steel.
The new Suzuki Celerio is now available in Suzuki outlets nationwide. Prices start at Php507,000 for manual transmission and Php542,000 for Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models.
It is available in eight colors: Snow White Pearl, Star Silver Metallic, Mineral Grey Metallic, Super Black Pearl, Ablaze Red Pearl, Cerulean Blue, Sunshine Yellow, and Raspberry Pink.
The Celerio competes against Toyota’s Wigo, Mitsubishi’s Mirage, Kia’s Picanto, Honda’s Brio, Hyundai’s Eon and Grand i10.
