Suzuki Swift on a roll in Phuket

PHUKET: The Suzuki car dealership in Phuket Town is reporting brisk sales of the “all new” Suzuki Swift eco-car and expects to sell 200 units by the end of the month from its recently renovated showroom in Phuket Town.

The showroom, on Surin Road near the Shell service station, is well-known to scores of Suzuki SJ413 “Caribian” drivers on the the island, who rely on it for maintenance and repairs.

The showroom and service garage recently underwent 30 million baht in renovations.

The subcompact Swift boasts a 1,250cc, 91 horsepower engine with a continuously variable transmission and several other new features.

SU Suzuki Co Ltd Managing Director Panthipa Upatising said public response to the car has been enthusiastic indeed.

Three models are available: the GLX, starting at 559,000 baht; the GL, starting at 507,000 baht; and the GA, with a base price of just 469,000 baht.

To sweeten the deal, SU Suzuki is offering a free 50% discount on first-class insurance for the first year.

First-time buyers will also qualify for 100,000 baht in government tax rebates, Ms Panthipa said.
