Suzuki Philippines Reveals Celerio Pricing, Launch Slated on August 5
Touted before as the fashionable supermini, Suzuki Philippines is giving its Celerio a full on model change for 2015. This time, they call it the A+ Compact. Meet the 2015 Suzuki Celerio. And although the official launch is slated for the first week of August, they’ve revealed the final pricing as well as an available perk, if you decide to get a unit as in now.
Although details are still scarce, Suzuki did mention that the all-new Celerio will pack the K10B three-cylinder engine putting out 67 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm at 3,500 rpm. It will also be available with two transmission options: a 5-speed manual or a CVT. The row-it-your-self model will set you back P 507,000 while the gearless tranny is priced at P 542,000. These figures certainly are very accurate to some of the Anonymous comments this site has been receiving the past few weeks.
In any case, Suzuki says the Celerio is much bigger thanks to a longer body and wheelbase, wider front and rear tracks, and a taller roofline. All in all, it should adhere to the “small on the outside, big in the inside” idea.
“We are very excited to introduce our A+ compact to the Filipino market. With its superior design, best-in-class luggage capacity, superb ease of driving, and outstanding fuel efficiency, we are confident that the all-new Suzuki Celerio is set to be the new standard in this segment,” shared Mr. Hiroshi Suzuki, President of Suzuki Philippines.
The official launch is slated for August 5, but if you happen to pass by Suzuki dealerships nationwide, they’ll have it on display. And if you place a reservation early, you can take an additional P 20,000 off the list price. Effectively, this means the Celerio 1.0 M/T is P 487,000 while the Celerio 1.0 CVT is P 522,000.
For those looking for more information, wait until August 5. We’ll have more information for you then.
