Suzuki Auto South Africa has again broken its monthly sales record, with the local arm of the Japanese automaker recording its “highest-ever” total sales figure with 3 701 units sold in April 2022. The firm’s best-seller was the Swift, which, according to NAAMSA, was also the top-selling passenger car in SA in April 2022. Suzuki dealers and the company’s corporate and rental sales team sold a combined 1 621 Swift units. 

Celerio Suzuki
Suzuki launched the all-new Celerio in March.

“In March, we welcomed the all-new Celerio, one of South Africa’s most affordable and fuel-efficient cars. It further strengthened our line-up of all designed and specified vehicles to offer the best specifications and performance for your hard-earned money, with Suzuki’s proven Japanese quality and durability,” said Henno Havenga, manager for auto dealer sales at Suzuki Auto South Africa.

“[We] will soon launch the all-new Baleno”

Havenga added: “We have been able to secure a strong flow of new vehicle shipments from abroad and trust that we will be able to shorten our waiting lists and welcome more customers into the fold. This applies to both the Celerio, of which we had limited stock in our launch month and our other popular models, such as the Swift, Jimny, Vitara Brezza and Baleno.”

The mid-tier GL-spec Jimny is priced from R336 900.

“There are many more exciting things ahead for Suzuki. We have started delivering the new Suzuki Jimny in GL specification to excited customers and will soon launch the all-new Baleno.” The company says there are several other surprises waiting in the wings.
