2016 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT Review – Tiny Car, Big Space, Great Fuel Economy

For the next generation, and with the mini car market heating up, Suzuki steps up their game with the all new 2016 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT offering a more unisex design with better space and excellent fuel economy. The previous generation Suzuki Celerio was a very cute car with equally cute dimensions and with styling that better fits a female driver than a male driver. Along with the cute styling are the cute dimensions that are a little bit just too cute because it sacrifices room inside the vehicle for passengers and cargo.

2016 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT Review - Tiny Car, Big Space, Great Fuel Economy

The 2016 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT has Grown and Matured

The 2016 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT is now a mature looking mini car with sharp angles rather than the gentle curves and circles of the previous generation. Angles and sporty-looking multi-spoke wheels give the new Celerio a sense of dynamism, the tall greenhouse and short wheelbase make it look like a brick but the subtle angles mitigate the boxy appearance and make it look more modern. The front ditches the curvy grille and googly-eyes for a sleeker chrome-garnished grille that merges with the new headlights. Under the hood, is a tiny 1 Liter three cylinder engine putting out a very modest 67hp and paired to an economical CVT.

On the inside of the 2016 Celerio 1.0 CVT, for its price range, you get what you pay for. What’s considered as a luxury though is the generous amount of space in the cabin especially for a mini car. Legroom is now on par with the competition and a reworked dash makes the front passengers feel extra roomy paired with the excellently bolstered seats. The tall greenhouse offers excellent visibility and overall interior quality is a huge step up from the previous generation.

Upon driving the 2016 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT, the power of the 67 horses becomes apparent. Complemented by the CVT that prioritizes fuel economy at an amazing 28kilometer-per-liter rating. The Celeriois a slow car from a standstill althoughupon reaching cruising speeds where the momentum puts less strain on the tiny 1 Liter, the 67 horses have no problem making the car feel zippy weaving through traffic. Don’t abuse the size and agility of the tiny car though because the stock suspension gives way to a lot of body roll and with the taller center of gravity, it’s better not to provoke physics to prevent you from having a very bad day.
