Suzuki climbs the ladder: Naamsa new car sales

Suzuki has shaken up the South African car market by its notable recovery according to National Association of Automobile Manufacturers’ (Naamsa) and recent car sales show that Suzuki Auto SA is doing exceptionally well in the South African charts. Last month the Japanese brand took the 7th spot in the sales ranking with a percentage of a 4.49 share of the overall vehicle market and a percentage of 7.17 of the passenger vehicle market. Suzuki sold 1 433 units with one dealership selling the entire unit through the dealer network. Suzuki is definitely on its way to compete with the big dogs of the motoring industry.

Suzuki recently launched the cheapest car in the South African car market, the stylish and boxy S-Presso which has been outdoing itself against its competitors- the Renault Kwid, Hyundai Atos and Datsun Go since being introduced into the market.

Suzuki has proven to cater for every South African from a low budget car for a student to an adventurous dad who likes visiting the safari, not forgetting a mom who takes her kids to school during the week. The Suzuki Swift Sport has been established as a favourite hatch with its charming, slightly larger design and is also very affordable - one can get an automatic or a manual Swift model according to your preference or what suits your lifestyle. It is no secret that hatches have become pretty pricey these days but not this baby.

For those who like adventurous sites, Suzuki has got your back with esteemed Jimny compact 4x4. This rough rider has excellent performance off-road and, on the road, featuring its latest automatic transmission for a more easy-going drive. If you want a reasonable vehicle that can climb highlands the Suzuki Jimny is the perfect ride for you.

Suzuki’s strategy to give us all types of vehicle models within an affordable range has been working remarkably for them and to be honest I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us next.
