The Suzuki Celerio has been launched at the Auto expo in New Delhi this week as a new A-Segment offering from Suzuki, but the Celerio isn’t just for emerging markets and will arrive in Eur-spec at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month. The Celerio offers more space than bothy the Alto and Splash – Suzuki’s current offerings in the A-Segment – and is expected to cost much the same as the Alto when it arrives in the UK in early 2015.
Which means the new Celerio is probably the replacement for both the Splash and Alto, and Suzuki are trumpeting it a ‘pocket-friendly’ car.
So far Suzuki are keeping tight-lipped about what will power the Celerio when it arrives in Euro-spec, but as the Indian version of the Celerio comes with a decent 1.0 litre 3-cylinder petrol delivering 66bhp it does seem likely this will be the engine of choice – perhaps tweaked and with a six-speed gearbox – for the European version.
We’ll learn more about the Celerio for the UK as Geneva approaches, but at prices likely to start at around £7k it does look like a sensible budget offering.
