Following its debut at the Delhi Auto Expo in India, the all-new Suzuki Celerio will also be stopping by at the Geneva Motor Show in March, presumably to remind the Europeans they are having it good. The Celerio is a global A-segment car designed mainly for the emerging markets such as India and Thailand.
As you’d expect from a model designed to be as cheap as possible, Suzuki Celerio does not look very good, it’s not very well-equipped, and it certainly isn’t fun to own and drive. On the upside, it is cheap, fuel efficient, has low running costs, and, well, it’s cheap.
Despite all its drawbacks, Suzuki Celerio would make a good family car in the less developed arts of the world. It has a spacious interior which means your cousins no longer have to ride along in the boot, and it will probably have one or two airbags – at least in the range-topping version – to protect your belongings from getting smashed in a crash.
We suspect Suzuki is bringing the Celerio to Geneva, not just as a warning from the Far East, but also because they might have an eye on the market currently dominated by small Dacia models.
