Suzuki APV Hits the Streets
24th June, 2005
Suzuki Australia has released the second vehicle in its new car line up, the successor to the popular Suzuki Carry Van, the APV Commercial Van.
The versatility of the APV Commercial Van, and its stylish design will make Suzuki's newest addition the ideal choice for small business, with ample cargo space to suit the diverse needs of its users.
An all round utility, the APV offers substantial interior space, impressive performance, durability and reliability, making it the perfect partner for light commercial and fleet businesses.
The vehicle provides considerable interior space, comfortably seating two adults in the front and a total cargo capacity of 3.4m², for stock and equipment.
The aluminium 1.6 litre 16 valve engine is extremely fuel efficient, yet does not compromise on performance, with the APV delivering exceptional output and torque when required.
Large 14 inch tyres and steel wheels with five mounting bolts have also been fitted for increased durability.
A practical and economical transport solution, the APV offers an attractive package design inside and out.
The commanding front end, flared bumper and high ground clearance of the APV provides a sense of stability and solidness.
The compact APV features excellent manoeuvrability around busy city centres, with a full width tailgate which swings upwards as well as versatile dual swing, side opening doors for easy cargo access.
The large door panels are perfect for corporate sign writing and mobile advertising, while the flat floor of the APV maximises cargo capacity.
The interior offers all the comforts of a passenger car, complete with a smart and functional instrument panel, featuring all major controls and handy cockpit compartments.
The cabin interior also offers ample legroom, with sliding and reclining seats as well as headrests that can be adjusted for added comfort.
Three-position ELR seatbelts are standard fitment for the driver and passenger, and the large glass windscreen provides excellent visibility for safe driving in busy environments.
As with all Suzuki vehicles, safety is kept at a premium with a rigid cabin construction incorporating side impact beams to help protect occupants and cargo in side collisions.
Dual SRS front airbags are also fitted to automatically deploy in front, offset and diagonal collisions to help reduce the severity of occupant injury.
The APV also features elevated headlights and tailgates allowing for all round visibility plus reduced vulnerability in minor collisions.
Standard features of the APV include heating, a 2 speaker AM/FM stereo and CD player, 3 spoke urethane steering wheel, sun visors with driver's side ticket holder, halogen headlamps, 2 speed front wipers, rear window demister, front and rear mud flaps, front floor carpet, cargo mats and power steering.
The Suzuki APV is on sale around Australia now, and is priced from just $16,990 (RRP).
The APV comes with Suzuki CustomerCare, providing customers with peace of mind via a three year/100,000km warranty and three year 24 hour roadside assistance.
