Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPH), just launched their latest vehicle designed to meet the needs of businesses. The all-new Suzuki Carry is ideal for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) with features that make it a tough and reliable business partner.
The all-new Carry supercedes its predecessor, the Suzuki Super Carry, and it improves on performance with a larger and stronger yet fuel-efficient K15B 1.5-liter engine that puts out 96hp at 5,600rpm with 135Nn of torque at 4,400rpm.
It’s also bigger, with a wider and longer with body configurations like a dropside flatbed, cargo van or utility van.
The dropside body allows the side gates to open from all sides, making loading and unloading cargo so much easier. It’s equipped with 22-rope hooks to secure cargo. The bed is 365 mm longer and 75 mm wider than its predecessor, which translates to better weight distribution when loaded with its cargo capacity of 940 kg.
The cabin is more spacious and comfortable, and offers additional storage areas in the dashboard and around the cabin. The gear lever is now mounted up on the dash, giving extra legroom for occupants.
It’s flexible and can be converted and modified to suit any business need whether you need a utility van, cargo truck, or pick-up truck, you’ll get the same reliability and functionality expected of Suzuki.
The all-new Carry and its variants are priced at: P509,000 (Carry truck); P576,000 (Carry Cargo Van); and P614,000 for the Carry Utility Van.
