NEW SUZUKI CELERIO MODELS
SUZUKI HAS introduced two new variants of its Suzuki Celerio city car, Dualjet and Auto Gear Shift.
The new ultra-clean Dualjet engine emits 84g/km of CO2 and attains 78.4mpg combined, making it the most fuel efficient new car on sale for less than £10,000. Dualjet costs £8,499.
The new engine incorporates twin fuel injectors for improved fuel economy and also incorporates a stop-start facility.
Also now on sale is Suzuki’s new development in automated manual gearbox technology. Known as 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.
Says Suzuki:”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 that would normally be the case with a conventional torque converter equipped automatic transmission.
“CO2 emissions are only 99g/km and Celerio with AGS is therefore road tax exempt. 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.”
AGS is offered on the top SZ4 grade for £9,799, an additional £800 over the manual transmission model.
Standard specification on all Celerio models includes six airbags, air conditioning, alloy wheels, DAB Radio, CD Tuner, USB, Bluetooth and remote central locking. SZ4 models add alloy wheels, rear electric windows, front fog lamps, body coloured door mirrors and chrome front grille.
