The latest news release from Suzuki Philippines hints at what the Japanese brand is looking to push this 2017. With their record-setting 52 percent growth in 2015 which settled down to a strong 37 percent in 2016, Suzuki has been doing solid business with sub-compact sedans, hatchbacks and MPVs. Their passenger vehicles continue to buck against the trend for sport utilities, winning the battle in detail by addressing just what it is that buyers are looking for when they covet SUVs and the like. Suzuki’s answer? Sport utility = strong mobility … the kind of mobility delivered by the efficient yet torquey powertrains and the rugged Asia-specific handling of their new Ciaz sedan, the Ertiga MPV, and the Celerio and Swift hatchbacks.
