The Suzuki Celerio micro-car will hit dealerships in February 2015, after Suzuki performed brake rectification work to 150 cars affected by a pre-production issue.

The three-door hatch came equipped with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. Code-named K10B, the naturally-aspirated engine produced 50kW at 6000rpm and 90Nm at 3500rpm. It was backed by either a five-speed manual gearbox or a CVT.

Fuel economy was listed as 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres for the manual, and 4.8 litres per 100km for the CVT.

The Celerio – which Suzuki says means Celestial River, but in many other languages translates as ‘celery’ – was built around an all-new platform, and claimed the mantle as cheapest new car in Australia for the time.
