Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

The Suzuki Celerio is compact – 3.6 metres long, or almost a metre shorter than a Ford Focus – but it’s spacious enough inside that it’ll just about fit five people. Lots of glass gives the driver great visibility all round and this, along with the well weighted steering, means that parking in town is easy. Getting in and out of the Celerio is also straightforward, as the rear doors open nice and wide.

Suzuki Celerio interior space & storage

Suzuki has done a good job in making the Celerio feel larger inside than its outer dimensions suggest, helped by its boxy shape and long wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear wheels). The large windows also help it feel less cramped inside.

The lack of a sloping roofline marks the Celerio down for style, but it also means generous headroom for everyone inside. What’s more, taller passengers sat in the back will appreciate the decent legroom, even when they’re behind a tall driver.

The glovebox is a good size and will fit a one-litre water bottle with ease. But the bins in the front doors might as well not exist – you won’t fit more than a couple of loose parking tickets in there.

Boot space

This is the Celerio’s practicality trump card – a 254-litre boot that’s the most spacious among cars of this type. Although the Hyundai i10, SEAT Mii, Volkswagen up! and Skoda Citigo all follow very close behind.

The boot is a good shape, too, but when you’re loading the car you need to heave luggage over a small lip. This isn’t a major irritation, however – it’s not as if you’ll be transporting large wardrobes around in your Celerio.

The rear seats split 60:40 and fold down to provide more luggage space, but they don’t lie completely flat, leaving a pronounced ledge. This is sure to make loading large, bulky items a little trickier.
