4th April, 2006

Just like Suzuki Australia, American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) has been revving its engines at record pace, and U.S. sales have never been stronger. Thanks to an inspired product line-up that includes the media acclaimed 2006 Grand Vitara, ASMC sold more vehicles in 2005 than any other year in its history. Now the company sets its sights on the 2006 New York Motor Show (NYIAS) and the global debut of its next head-turning vehicle, the all-new 2007 Suzuki XL-7, which delivers expressive adaptability and redefines the midsize SUV. In addition to unveiling the XL-7, Suzuki also will introduce to the North American market the all-new 2007 SX-4, which delivers bold attitude and performance in a compact sport crossover with all-wheel drive (AWD).

Variants of both models are expected in Australia this year, to further boost the impressive sales performance of Suzuki's local operation.

    “New York City is one of the most active cities in the world, and it serves as an appropriate venue to unveil two stylish and sporty vehicles to meet the needs of consumers with active lifestyles,” said Koichi Suzuki, president of ASMC Automotive Operations. “American Suzuki is excited about the impact these vehicles will have on the company’s success and the impression they will make across the automotive industry.”

In the development of the XL-7, Suzuki leveraged its 4x4 heritage and expertise to design an all-new vehicle, providing style, room and adaptability for mobile lifestyles. The 2007 Suzuki XL-7, equipped with a 3.6-litre, V6 DOHC engine, defines the new direction of the mid-sized 4x4 market and is one of the first entries to combine room for family and cargo with performance, style and comfort not previously associated with 4x4s of this size.

The all-new XL-7 has cargo and seating flexibility for all aspects of active lifestyles, on-road performance capabilities, sleek and distinctive style and advanced safety features that provide a confident feeling of being in control in any condition.

Suzuki’s new XL-7 is expected to arrive on world markets in late 2006.

Suzuki SX4

The new SX-4 made its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show last month. This new compact sport crossover with AWD will make its North American debut at the NYIAS. The all-new SX-4 features a versatile, rigid five-door design, a standard all-wheel-drive system and for the U.S. market, a sophisticated fuel-sipping 2.0-litre DOHC engine. Specifications for the Australian version have not yet been announced.

The Suzuki SX-4’s advanced intelligent all-wheel-drive system (i-AWD) sends power to the rear wheels as needed with no additional input necessary from the driver. Called the Three-Mode Switchable AWD system, it features a selector switch on the centre console that allows the driver to select from three modes: 2WD, AUTO (AWD High) and LOCK (AWD Lock). Customers in the United States will have a choice of a five-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed automatic transmission.

With its contemporary styling, high-output engine, the security of AWD and ABS and five-door versatility, the all-new Suzuki SX-4 delivers the bold attitude and performance designed for those who live an adventurous life. The SX-4 is slated to go on sale in Australia and the United States later this year.
