Next year will bring to us another addition to Suzuki's city car division and will be the return of the Celerio model. We have known about the car for a number of months now but it was this week that the mass manufacturer have officially come out and announced a price tag that will come along with the car and just when it is we can expect to see the vehicle go on sale. First and foremost, the brand new model will arrive in both SZ3 and SZ4 forms from February of next year and an opening cost from £7,999 has also been confirmed.
The big changes compared to the previous Celerio range include the options of both manual and automatic transmission systems and C02 emissions have also been drastically reduced. Both SZ3 and SZ4 trim levels offer some good value for money with entry level highlights including a DAB digital radio,USB connectivity,Bluetooth and central locking. If you spend an extra £1,000 on the SZ4 trim, the aforementioned highlights are carried over along side new features like a chrome grille, electric windows at the rear end of the car and a set of fog lights too. Stop start technology has been incorporated into the car with just the one engine coming thrown into the mix which consists of a one litre,petrol unit as confirmed by Suzuki.
