As expected, a ton of people were asking about the Celerio’s fuel economy. When it made its global debut, Suzuki said the five-door was capable of doing 26.68km/L. Impressive, no? Well, SPH announced during the local launch that it conducted its own fuel-economy run, and the Celerio yielded even better figures at 28.25km/L.

SPH didn’t publish any specifics about the test whatsoever, so we’re not sure what conditions the Celerio was subjected to during the run. The carmaker only mentioned that the fuel-economy run was sanctioned by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP).
The all-new Celerio is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline mill that generates 66hp and 89Nm of torque. It can be had with a five-speed manual gearbox or Suzuki’s Auto Gear Shift or automated manual transmission. SPH didn’t mention which variant was used during the fuel-efficiency test, though.
Either way, considering how high pump prices have shot up these days, it’s nice for potential car buyers to have an extremely fuel-efficient car among their options in our market. Of course, we might get different results from actual real-world testing. Once we get our hands again on this hatch, we’ll put it through a proper test and keep you guys posted.
