Suzuki is a name South Africans have come to trust when it comes to dependable, safe automobiles. Models such as the Swift and SX4 get great fuel mileage, look sporty, and can be purchased for a low price. Shopping for a used Suzuki in South Africa could not be easier and you can find the car you have always wanted right in the classified ads.
Suzuki was founded in 1909 by Michio Suzuki and began as a loom company. The company diversified and in 1937, Suzuki saw the demand for small, fuel efficient cars. The first Suzuki automobile was a small car powered by a four-cylinder engine that was liquid cooled. The company put auto production on hold during World War II and made a name for itself in 1955 with the release of the Suzuki Suzulight, a front-wheel drive car with rack-and-pinion steering. Today, Suzuki is owned by Volkswagen and continues to produce small cars with innovative technology and features. The company still strives to build cars that will fit into almost anyone's budget.
All Suzuki models are dependable, offer unsurpassed safety features, and give drivers all the power they could ever need. That said, there are a few models that are more popular than others.
The Suzuki Swift debuted in 1983 and is still being made today. It is a small, subcompact car that comes in a hatchback, sedan and convertible. Engine sizes vary and run either petrol or diesel and each model is available with a manual or automatic transmission. Many of the Swift models come with four-wheel drive while others are only available with front-wheel drive. In 2013, Suzuki announced the Swift plug-in hybrid which offers exceptional fuel mileage.
The SX4 is a compact car introduced in 2006. It comes in both a hatchback and sedan and can be purchased with either front-wheel or four-wheel drive. Engines vary from model to model and the SX4 is offered with either a manual or automatic transmission. In 2013, Suzuki announced the development of the SX4 S-Cross, a crossover vehicle that hit auto markets in the fall of 2013.
