Neat, pe­tite and low on emis­sions

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - CLASSIFIED -

FOL­LOW­ING its Euro­pean de­but at the Geneva Mo­tor Show ear­lier this year, Cele­rio, Suzuki’s all new global com­pact City car, will go on sale in the UK from Fe­bru­ary 2015. Suzuki are well known as the small car ex­perts. Cele­rio has re­tained their trade­mark com­pact car ease of drive, while pro­vid­ing an el­e­vated driv­ing po­si­tion, in­te­rior space that sur­passes most con­ven­tional A-seg­ment cars, and also a class lead­ing lug­gage ca­pac­ity of 254L.

Dur­ing de­sign, Suzuki aimed for a res­o­lu­tion of the con­tra­dic­tory el­e­ments of re­tain­ing in­te­rior space within a com­pact body.

By go­ing back to ba­sics in de­vel­op­ment and re­view­ing body struc­ture, Suzuki has suc­ceeded in de­liv­er­ing a roomy and com­fort­able in­te­rior within a com­pact body of just 3,600mm and width of 1,600mm. All th­ese el­e­ments have been packed into a dy­nam­i­cally styled pack­age.

A height of 1,530mm and a non-slant­ing roofline al­lows greater head­room for oc­cu­pants. The 2,425mm long wheel­base pro­vides a tan­dem dis­tance of 743mm which gives plenty of space in the cabin for five oc­cu­pants.

Stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion high­lights for the range will in­clude six airbags (Driver, pas­sen­ger, side and cur­tain), ESP*, air con­di­tion­ing, al­loy wheels, DAB Ra­dio, CD Tuner, USB and Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity. Full de­tails in­clud­ing grad­ing struc­ture will be an­nounced by the end of the year.

Cele­rio of­fers low CO2 emis­sions of 99g/km and fuel con­sump­tion of 65.7mpg on the EC com­bined cy­cle.

In the sum­mer of 2015 a new en­gine will be avail­able of­fer­ing even higher fuel econ­omy and CO2 emis­sions that fall to just 84g/km thanks to the in­tro­duc­tion of Suzuki’s new Dual­jet en­gine tech­nol­ogy.

Also avail­able in the sum­mer will be Suzuki’s newly de­vel­oped Auto Gear Shift (AGS).

This sys­tem fea­tures an In­tel­li­gent Shift Con­trol Ac­tu­a­tor po­si­tioned at the top of the trans­mis­sion that op­er­ates the gearshift and clutch au­to­mat­i­cally.

With AGS, the driver can en­joy the ef­fort­less driv­ing of an au­to­matic, par­tic­u­larly in City traf­fic, but with­out any loss in fuel ef­fi­ciency or in­crease in CO2 emis­sions that would nor­mally be the case with a con­ven­tional torque con­verter equipped au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

A unique fea­ture of the Suzuki AGS is a low speed ‘creep’ fa­cil­ity which al­lows the car to move in gear with­out the ac­cel­er­a­tor be­ing ap­plied, ideal in slow traf­fic and when park­ing. Cele­rio will be avail­able in six colours of which five are op­tional metal­lic fin­ish and one a solid colour.
