As with almost all city cars, the Celerio’s steering wheel adjusts only for height (not reach). This means you may struggle to find the ideal driving position, although even the cheapest trim comes with a height-adjustable driver’s seat, which is rare in the city car class.
The seat is easy to adjust, but it could do with a bit more side and lower back (lumbar) support. Then again, the same criticisms can be levelled at many cars in this price bracket.
The dashboard is relatively easy to get to grips with, thanks to the simple rotary controls for the heater (or air-con system on higher trim levels).
Suzuki Celerio visibility
Relatively slim windscreen pillars give you a good view out of the front, and the side windows are tall and wide enough not to cause any real issues when pulling out of junctions.
The window line does rise slightly towards the rear of the car, and the rear pillars are fairly chunky, although over-the-shoulder visibility is still pretty decent. It’s just a shame that rear parking sensors aren’t fitted to any version. They aren't available as a factory-fitted optional extra, either; the only way to get them is as a dealer-fit accessory.
Suzuki Celerio infotainment
All editions come with a DAB radio and a CD player, while SZ3 and SZ4 trims also come with Bluetooth and a USB socket, allowing you to make and receive phone calls on the move and play music stored on your phone through the stereo system.
If you’re hoping for a high-tech colour touchscreen to access all these features, however, then you’ll be disappointed. The Celerio’s stereo does have a small display on it, but it’s monochrome and difficult to read, making it relatively tricky to change albums, or find the person you want to dial in your phonebook. At least the screen is flanked by chunky, well-labelled shortcut buttons, and there are separate controls for the Bluetooth system on the steering wheel.
Sound quality is pretty tinny, even in the SZ4 model, which has four speakers. It’s even less impressive in the two-speaker SZ2 and SZ3. It’s also a pity that no form of sat-nav is offered as an option.
Suzuki Celerio build quality
As is the case with most other city cars, the Celerio’s cabin is built from hard and unforgiving materials. Even by the relatively low standards of the city car class, however, the Suzuki’s interior looks and feels decidedly cheap. Everything seems well bolted together, but the plastics aren’t textured in a particularly appealing way and the plastic steering wheel feels low-rent, too.
The Suzuki’s doors also sound fairly tinny and hollow when you shut them, rather than closing with a reassuring thud.
