Suzuki South Africa will enter the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segment for the first time with the introduction of the new Super Carry compact bakkie. The Super Carry will arrive at Suzuki dealerships across the country in June 2016.
Suzuki is best known for its reliable passenger cars, with the Swift, Vitara and Jimny being particularly popular in South Africa. Suzuki South Africa is now venturing forth into the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segment and will soon introduce the Super Carry compact bakkie to market in June 2016.
The Super Carry bakkie, now in its 11th generation, has been around since 1961 and has been particularly popular in Japan and other markets. The Super Carry is built in India and South Africa will be the first international market to receive the new model. The Super Carry will appeal to small business owners looking for a capable, affordable and reliable workhorse to ‘carry’ out daily business duties, with the support of Suzuki’s established dealer network.
What does the Super Carry offer?
The Super Carry comes with a payload of 750 kg and features a cab-over design with a large load bay measuring 2.18 x 1.49 metres. The Super Carry also has a ground clearance of 175 mm and a turning circle of 8.6 metres, which makes it capable of manoeuvring in tighter spaces.
The Super Carry can comfortably seat two people and the raised seating position offers increased visibility for the driver.
A 1.2-litre engine with a total of 54 kW and 101 Nm of torque will power the new Super Carry with a 5-speed manual transmission powering the rear wheels.
“We’re delighted to introduce the Suzuki Super Carry to the SA market. It arrives at a time when cost efficiency, affordability and value for money are key requirements for small businesses and entrepreneurs seeking an efficient, versatile and robust utility vehicle” says Charl Grobler, manager of product planning and sales at Suzuki Auto SA.
