Replacing the Alto the new Celerio city car from Suzuki goes on sale in February 2015 priced from £7,999.
The Celerio is powered at launch by a 1.0-litre petrol engine delivering 68PS from its three cylinders. According to NEDC data it is capable of 65.7 mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.
