The Suzuki Celerio (Maruti Celerio in India) is on display at 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Marketed as an entry level city car, the Celerio is priced at CHF 13,490 (around INR 9.10 lakhs) in Switzerland.
The Celerio for Europe is being shipped from Thailand. The Japanese small car may not have the aesthetic charm of its rivals VW Up! and Renault Twingo but it relies on a comprehensive equipment list and a peppy gasoline motor. The mini Suzuki is fitted with ABS with EBD, 6-airbags, ESP, AC, power steering, audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, start-stop system, multifunction display, LED daytime running lights, fog lamps, alloy wheels, 60:40 split seats, power windows, etc.
Propulsive force is courtesy of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol motor which is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Some European countries also get an automatic variant. The motor which is also found in the India-spec Celerio puts out 68 PS which is potent enough to pull the 920 kg (kerb weight) city car.
Save for the LED daytime running lights which are integrated into a circular housing in the headlamp cluster (above the turn indicators), there are no significant visual differences between the European version and Indian version.
