Functional, economical and reliable - these are the words that come to mind when even thinking of a Suzuki brand. And most importantly, you know you're going to have fun. With its new funky look, Suzuki has introduced their own compact SUV to the world. Sporting a smaller 1.2L engine, one might think this car is on the weaker side, however as the car as a whole is also lighter, weighing in at only 850kg, it can be pretty light on its feet.
The interior of the Suzuki is right up there with the rest of the cross-over vehicles in today's market. You’ll notice a radio/CD entertainment unit equipped with Bluetooth and USB. The option of a touchscreen infotainment is available at an additional price. The Suzuki's luggage bay measures 260 litres and the rear seats can fold to an extent, making it easier to fit bikes, boards or even a pram. Electric windows are in the front and back, making it easier to unwind.
Now keeping all of this in mind, you will be shocked to learn that the fuel consumption is 4.9 L/100 km (AMT) and 5.1 L/100 km (manual). For safety purposes the car also features ABS and EBD, standard across the range, and has front airbags.
