Suzuki small car showdown: S-Presso vs. Celerio

Suzuki has been a real game changer in the hatchback segment —masterfully combining comfort, convenience, and performance in its affordable compact cars. Two of its well-loved hatchback models are the classic Celerio and the eye-catching S-Presso.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What makes the Suzuki Celerio's exterior look different from the Suzuki S-Presso's?

    The Suzuki Celerio features a traditional hatchback form, while the Suzuki S-Presso has a distinctively cute look. The Celerio is also slightly larger in terms of dimensions.
  • What powers the Suzuki Celerio and Suzuki S-Presso?

    Suzuki’s proven K10B engine powers both the Suzuki Celerio and the Suzuki S-Presso. The Celerio gets a continuously variable transmission (CVT), while the S-Presso uses a five-speed manual transmission.
  • Despite the fact that both hatchbacks are manufactured by the same brand, their executions are vastly different. The Celerio features a traditional hatchback form, while the S-Presso has a distinctively cute look — with an almost faux SUV feel. The Celerio is also slightly larger in terms of dimensions.

    On the inside, the S-Presso is distinguished by a modern digital speedometer that sits atop a seven-inch touchscreen audio with power window controls. The audio system can also be connected to a mobile device through Bluetooth and USB.

    On the other hand, the Celerio features a standard instrument panel with easy-to-read meters.

    Both cars have adequate cargo capacity, which may be increased by folding the rear seats. The Celerio features a best-in-class luggage capacity of 254 liters, according to Suzuki.
