Suzuki Celerio 2009 gives Alto company in UAE
The Indian-built Suzuki Alto has been around in the UAE for a while now, offering ultra-cheap “new” transportation to ultra-cheap people who refuse to simply buy a larger used car instead. For people with that screwy mentality, Suzuki is now offering the 2009 Celerio this summer, so they aren’t as embarrassed about their vanity-related mental deficiencies.
Likely named after a vegetable, the Celerio is actually a new version of the Alto, but Suzuki has decided to offer this new model alongside the existing Alto in the UAE and other GCC countries.
Power comes from a tiny 1.0-litre engine, producing 67 hp and 90 Nm of torque, enough to reach highway speeds with a strong tailwind.
Features include two airbags, fixed rear windows, hard interior plastics, and a choice of manual or automatic. Pricing start at Dhs 37,000, or about Dhs 5,000 more than the outdated Alto.
