Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Suzuki showed that a similar level of protection would be availabe to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Readings from the lower legs of the driver dummy indicated a marginal level of protection for this part of the body. In the side barrier test, the Celerio scored maximum points, with good protection of all body areas. A head-protecting side impact airbag is available as an option on the Celerio. As it is not standard equipment, the car did not qualify for assessment in the side pole test and no points were awarded. Protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision was rated as good for the front seats but a geomatric analysis of the rear seats indicated a poor level of protection.

Child occupant

The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraints for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the vehicle.


The Celerio scored maximum points for the protection provided by its bumper to pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was almost entirely poor in its protection of the pelvis area. The bonnet surface offered predominantly good or adequate protection to a pedestrian's head, with poor results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

The Celerio has electronic stability control as standard equipment, together with a seatbelt reminder system for the front seats only. The Celerio does not have a speed-limiter, a lane-keeping assist system or autonomous emergency braking.
