How much does the Suzuki Celerio cost to run?

The 1.0L petrol is the most economical Suzuki Celerio to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency. Compared to the competition in the City segment, it will make the smallest dent in your wallet.

The Suzuki Celerio 1.0L petrol is free to tax, as it sits in tax band A. In fact this is the lowest CO2 output of any model in the City segment at the time of writing. Good job, Suzuki.

It does just over 78 MPG on average, which means it will cost £7.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

This is the best fuel economy in class, and better than the next three cars: Citroen C1, Fiat 500, Peugeot 108

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 7, which is lower than the Citroen C1 1.0L petrol, but higher than the Kia Picanto 1.0L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Fiat Panda has the lowest insurance group.)

Suzuki Celerio: How big is the boot?

The Suzuki Celerio has an above average boot space (254 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Smart Fortwo coupe is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and one large bag with its 307 litres.

Is the Suzuki Celerio easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the Kia Picanto), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill 67% of the space.

When it comes to parking on the street, the Celerio is one of the hardest. It has a turning circle of 9m, and a length of 3600m, giving you a relatively small 1200mm gap to turn the car in and out.

If you don’t have a drive, you should look at the best in class for parallel parking instead, the Smart Fortwo.

Which Suzuki Celerio has the best performance?

The fastest Suzuki Celerio from 0-60, is the 1.0L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 93 lbs/ft torque and 68 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 13 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Fiat 500 1.2L petrol, which will beat your Suzuki Celerio to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
