Background

Replacing both the Alto and the Splash, the Celerio is a small hatch built down to a price. It’s powered by a three-cylinder petrol engine. For more information on the Celerio, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test

This is a pure value-for-money proposition. Because the Celerio has to fulfil the dual role of replacing the tiny Alto and the larger Splash in one go, it comes loaded with kit. DAB, air-con and alloys are all standard. There are five seatbelts (although you’ll have to pick slim passengers to go in the back) and a decent-sized boot. Manufactured in Thailand, build quality feels fine but materials feel cheap. Shame it looks so dull. It may be a white good, but it didn’t have to look like one.
