Suzuki has revealed its new city car for the masses – a car that sounds awfully like a piece of salad – will go sale in February.

Let us introduce you to the Celerio (stick), a car that is looking to notch up considerable sales for the Japanese manufacturer. 

Suzuki says the city car will have a lot to offer buyers. It offers an elevated driving position, for a start, acres of interior space (well, for a city car any way) and a class-leading luggage capacity of 254-litres. 

It has some fantastic safety features as standard too. There are six airbags packed in, Electronic Stability Control, air conditioning, alloy wheels, DAB Radio, CD Tuner, USB and Bluetooth connectivity. 

Under the bonnet, a stop-start equipped three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine will offer excellent economy and will produce just 85g/km CO2 emissions. 

Also available in the summer, will be Suzuki’s newly developed 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, which Suzuki says gives the same economy as a manual.

The new city car will be available in six colours and although prices have yet to be confirmed they are expected to be similar to those of the outgoing Alto, which starts at £7,199.
