The Suzuki Celerio drives like a go-kart, this is in thanks to its lightweight construction. Despite having a small displacement and sub-100-hp engine the vehicle still performs. There is enough torque to go around and bring the vehicle up to speed even with passengers. The CVT variant provides optimum torque with every press of the gas pedal.
For handling, the vehicle can be on the numb side. The steering feel can also be on the dull side. But overall, the vehicle will tend to corner flat thanks to its stiff suspension, an added bonus for those who like to go through winding roads.

I got the best feature I read when planning to buy "fuel economy". Aside from that, after 3 years of having it, we discovered AC as its most if not main issue. Now at age 5, we are about to change compressor. Well-maintained unit from the beginning. Followed its manual's maintenance record under casa, then now in trusted car maintenance shops. Uses daily to go to work, about 30 minutes drive everyday. Sulit na din maybe?
