    The Suzuki Celerio's instrument panel, which features unique vent grilles in the center and sides, gives the hatchback an invigorating vibe. For a more comfortable and convenient driving experience, the Celerio comes with a 6.2-inch touchscreen audio unit with a clear and responsive anti-glare touchscreen, Weblink 2.0, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and audio controls on the steering wheels.

    Meanwhile, the dashboard and door panels of the Geely Emgrand are made of plush and soft cladding materials instead of hard plastic.

A CN95 filter is included in the air-conditioning system, guaranteeing that the air entering the cabin is free from viruses and bacteria.

    To ensure the safety of the occupants, both vehicles are equipped with front airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS), and rear parking sensors. The Suzuki Celerio comes standard with additional safety features such as Isofix child seat anchorages, childproof rear door locks, and hill hold control. The Geely Emgrand, on the other hand, comes with front side airbags, side curtain airbags, electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), hill start assist, reverse camera, cruise control, and tire pressure monitoring system.
