Good size cabin space

It probably had a full diet, the Suzuki Celerio 1.0 CVT with sport mode that could fit five average size adults comfortably on fabric upholstered seats with a lot of head and leg room. The air-conditioning system can cool the cabin sufficiently while the integrated CD/MP3/aux-in/WMA/USB/AM/FM in-dash wired to 4-speakers produced above listening pleasure sound quality. The easy to read informative instrument cluster panel with red illumination can definitely keep your alert level high just by looking at the cluster. This writer also noticed, compared to the previous model, that the front and rear electric windows can now be operated individually from each side and with the master switch on the driver’s door panel. The front dual airbags together with 3-point seatbelts for each passenger and a 2-point seatbelt for the rear middle passenger will help increase the chance of survival in a major collision. Cup holders, bottle holders and door pockets were located within reach inside the cabin for stowing things. The boot now has a 254 liter capacity, ideally huge in this vehicle segment. The steering wheel diameter was the precise size for easy maneuvers and had a relaxed feel to hold on, even during long road trips. By the way compared to the previous model, the cabin noise was reduced.
Inside the bonnet, the Suzuki Celerio was pulled by a 998cc in-line 3 DOHC multipoint injected 12 valve aluminium petrol engine mated to a (CVT) continuously variable transmission with Sport mode for better acceleration. This petrol engine could produce a maximum output of 67hp/6000rpm and a maximum torque of 90nm/3500rpm. During idle, engine vibration was minimized dramatically and could hardly be felt. The front ventilated disc brakes and the rear leading and trailing drum brakes were aided by (ABS) anti-lock brake system and (EBD) electronic brake-force distribution plus (BA) brake assist. The perfect combination for a balanced sure stop and for brake and steer situations when required. The improved rack and pinion with electric power steering (EPS) installed in this vehicle now reacts at real time when exercising quick parking maneuvers. The 35 liter fuel tank capacity was sufficient for the fuel it consumed; this vehicle can run at 100 km/h on the speedometer at 2,000rpm on the tachometer.
On the exterior the aerodynamic body was redesigned for better fuel efficiency. The Halogen multi-reflector headlamps beam together with the fog lamps had sufficient density for the driver to see the road ahead. Just with 165/65R14 tires mounted on 14” alloy wheels the Suzuki Celerio looked appetizingly good.
May it be a starter car, a school car or what ever you might want to call it, as a daily ride, it was fun to drive and could certainly zip through lanes at moderate speeds. The vehicle tested came in cerulean blue and with seven more colors to choose from, now with those color choices, how anyone could not choose a preferred color.
