Is Celerio suitable for long journeys

Suzuki Celerio 1.0 Comfort (11/14 - 08/18)

Conclusion on the Suzuki Celerio 1.0 Comfort (11/14 - 08/18)

With a length of only 3.60 meters, the new Celerio turns out to be a spacious city car. The trunk holds a praiseworthy 220 liters for a small car - if you fold down the rear seat, up to 955 liters can even be stowed away. The trunk can therefore also be used for bulky luggage. In the interior, thanks to the large window areas and good interior width, you will find a pleasant feeling of space, and the clear body is easy to assess. With a turning circle of around 10.3 meters and the very indirect steering ratio, the Celerio cannot keep up with the maneuverability of many other small cars. Thanks to the large door cutouts, getting in and out of the car is easy, and the cockpit, which has been reduced to the essentials, does not require too much familiarization. On the other hand, driving comfort is poor. Long distances are tortured by the uncomfortable seats, the loud engine, the callous steering and the rough chassis. The 68 HP petrol engine is subjectively lively due to the short translation and the rough sound. However, the actual performance measured is just as mediocre as is the consumption, which in the EcoTest averages 5.0 l / 100 km. The modified petrol engine in the "Eco +" package should therefore be more recommendable. Then there is also a start-stop system, among other things. The "Eco +" package is unfortunately not available for the equipment tested, but only for the cheaper Club version. All in all, the Celerio 1.0 Comfort convinces as a spacious city car with an acceptable base price of 11,490 euros. Nevertheless, it lacks fine-tuning throughout, which means that overall it is only enough to achieve a satisfactory overall result.
