    Dimensions

    The all-new Suzuki Celerio is 95mm longer, 55mm wider, and 15mm taller with an improved wheelbase (additional 10mm) and ground clearance (increased by 25mm) compared to its predecessor.

    The upgrade in size means that the vehicle can provide a more relaxed driving experience with all the room that it offers.

    Exterior

    The latest version of the nameplate displays more rounded edges, which is far from the chiseled look that the previous-generation iteration wears.

    The Japanese compact car manufacturer replaced the previous version Celerio's rectangular upper grille for an oval type; and instead of two chrome horizontal lines that connect the headlights, the newly-launched iteration now only comes with one. Also, the lower grille now has a better design integration with the fog lamp housings.

    The fluid design continues  on the side profile of the all-new Suzuki Celerio, trading the upswept and sharp lines flowing up to the rear. The vehicle’s rear sports a new layout and has a pair of reflectors too.

    Interior

    From being nearly blank, the all-new Suzuki Celerio features control buttons on the steering wheel that will allow him/her to manage the touchscreen audio system. The middle air-conditioning vents now have a vertical orientation.

    It may work for some, but the all-new Suzuki Celerio's window switches are no longer found on its doors. The front passengers will find theirs on the center dashboard (just below the touchscreen) while the rear occupants may access theirs near the handbrake area.

    Powertrain

    The recently-introduced iteration is now powered by a K10C engine, which is also a 998cc power mill but with a lower output. To compare, the updated power mill can deliver up to 65.7hp at 5,600rpm and 89Nm at 3,600rpm while the previous model (K10B) can do 67 horses at 3,600 and 90Nm at 3,500rpm.

    The Dualjet system now available in the latest version of the nameplate utilizes two injectors per cylinder that spritzes fuel in a more readily-combustible form.

    The all-new Celerio exchanged the continuous variable transmission option for a five-speed automated manual transmission called Auto Gear Shift (AGS). The feature, SPH said, combines the efficiency of a traditional stick-shift with the convenience of an automatic.
