Suzuki GB PLC is pleased to announce a big leap into Spring with impressive first Quarter registrations of 7,711 units, a 12.5 per cent increase over the same period in 2011.
March registrations were also at a new high with a 19.5 per cent increase to 5,941 units. This took Suzuki above a 1.5 per cent market share for the first March period in three years and proves once again the popularity of Suzuki’s small, fun to drive and fuel efficient cars.
The good news for Suzuki customers continues into Quarter 2 with the VAT free campaign now extended until June 30th for SZ2 models of Alto, Splash and Swift. Alto SZ2 remains the cheapest new car on the market at just £6,666 together with very low costs of ownership; Suzuki remains the only manufacturer offering three different models from its range at less than £9,000.
Suzuki Financial Services has also extended its very popular PCP affordability offers into Q2 aimed at buyers in the 18-35 category as well as those looking for a low deposit and low monthly payment option. Taking an Alto SZ2 as an example, a deposit of just £466 is followed by 42 monthly payments of £125 with the option to pay a final balloon payment of £2,468 at the end of the agreement to keep the car.
Alto SZ2 is currently the most inexpensive car to buy and own with Group 4E insurance classification and a very low combined fuel consumption of 64.2mpg.
Moving up the range and taking a Splash SZ2 1.0-litre at £7,777 as an example on Personal Contract purchase; the deposit is now reduced to £777 followed by 42 monthly payments of £139 and an optional final payment of £2,846 at the end of the agreement.
For a similar PCP for a Swift SZ2 three door at £8,888, the deposit is just £599 followed by 42 monthly payments of £159 and a final payment of £3,535 at the end of the agreement. The latest Special Edition Swift Attitude and award winning Swift Sport are also now available on a low rate PCP.
Suzuki’s highly competitive 0% APR three year Hire Purchase finance offers available on SX4 and Grand Vitara models will also continue until the end of June, both requiring a 50 per cent deposit.
