Six airbags (driver, passenger, side and curtain), electric front windows and DAB radio come as standard, along with central locking and ESP to form a value-for-money package at the base of the Suzuki range.
With the largest boot (254 litres) in its class, the Celerio replaced the Alto and Splash models in Suzuki’s small car range at the beginning of 2015.
The SZ2 is now available with the Dualjet petrol engine, boasting improved fuel economy and emissions over the standard three-cylinder 1.0-Litre powertrain. It’ll do 78.4 mpg and emit 84g/km of CO2, superseding the standard car’s 65.7 mpg and 99g/km. These figures are competitive when compared with some of the Celerio’s European rivals with the Citroen C1 struggling to reach 70 mpg with a similar 1.0-Litre engine.
The SZ2 will produce 67 bhp and 93 Nm of torque and despite no performance figures being released as of yet, expect the cut-price city car to hit 62mph in around 13 seconds and top out at just under 100mph.
Starting at £6,999, the SZ2 undercuts the rest of the Celerio range to become Suzuki’s cheapest car on sale. The Dacia Sandero is £1,000 cheaper still, meaning the SZ2 sits between the Dacia and the PSA trio (Peugeot 108, Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo) in the city car market.
