According to information, Suzuki has decided to focus only on their high selling models– Ignis, Swift, S-Cross and Vitara. The company is also readying its product range to meet the upcoming 2020 emission regulations in the UK.

The Celerio and Baleno, launched in 2015 and 2016 respectively, were never strong sellers for the brand in Europe. Suzuki has only managed to sell 15,000 units of the Baleno and 21,000 units of the Celerio in 2018 while in comparison it managed to sell 55,000 units of Swift and more than 42,000 units of Ignis during the same period.
