Why Lease A Suzuki?
Suzuki is a Japanese manufacturer that produces cars in relatively small numbers for the UK but is a huge player in the global market. The latest models score well on quality and price, making them a great option for personal leasing or business leasing on a budget.
Founded over a century ago, the Japanese manufacturer has a history of making a range of different vehicles, which tend to offer value for money as well as extra appeal – be it a sporty drive or off-road ability.
Although Volkswagen held a large stake in the carmaker in the 2010s, today the Japanese firm has a partnership with Toyota – a tie-up reflected in Suzuki’s latest cars, which have seen a rise in interior quality, style and technology. It rivals most mainstream manufacturers on lease deals, particularly brands like Mazda, Hyundai, MG, and Dacia.
The Range Of Suzuki Cars
Suzuki has formed a partnership with Toyota, meaning its most recent models share a lot with Toyota products. At the time of writing, it has 7 vehicles in its portfolio, from small hatchbacks such as the Swift to the Vitara SUV. All of them have some kind of hybrid electrification version available, although the sophistication of the technology varies from model to model.
The range starts with the Ignis, which has the high ride height of an SUV but is the size of a city car. It’s the most affordable option you can lease and it stands out with its unusual looks. It offers great fuel economy and lots of room inside, as well as generous equipment levels.
The Swift is a small supermini hatchback with slick looks and a sporty feel, which is mirrored in the driving experience, particularly in the Swift Sport model. Then there’s the spacious and practical Swace estate, which is essentially a Toyota Corolla estate with a Suzuki badge on it. The relationship with Toyota continues in the Across, which is a rebadged Toyota RAV4 and a large SUV aimed mainly at on-road use.
The Vitara is a midsize SUV that’s been around in various forms since the 1980s, and while most customers will keep it firmly on the road, it can tackle muddle country lanes without too much trouble. Meanwhile, the S-Cross has just been released in its latest format and comes with hybrid power only, plus a choice of front- or 4-wheel drive.
