2020 Suzuki XL6 revealed

Suzuki looks to take Toyota’s Rush and Honda’s BR-V head on by adding the XL6, a  sportier and more premium version of their 7-seater MPV offering, Ertiga. To start, the XL6 shares the same 1.5-liter gasoline engine and runs at a respectable 103 hp and 138 Nm of torque. This is also mated to a five-speed manual  or a four-speed automatic transmission.  While it runs on the same engine, its exterior is better as the XL6...

2019 Suzuki Jimny revealed

I’ve always has a fascination for cheap and cheerful small cars. I mulled over getting either a Toyota Starlet or a Daihatsu Charade just for kicks. I eventually bought a Hyundai i10 just when it first came out as my daily driver. It was so easy to park, relatively zippy considering the condition of Manila roads, and spacious enough to ferry the gang once in a while. Though it’s a good thing I disposed of it just when the...

Suzuki Alto K10 launched

Suzuki Philippines just launched the new Suzuki Alto K10. Many are already familiar with the wee Alto that we see on the streets. Driving an already small car (Hyundai i10), pulling up beside an Alto still gives me that “bigger bully” feel. The Alto is quite tiny even by subcompact standards. The Alto’s been around since 2007, and its small size, small engine, fuel efficiency and price makes it quite the popular car...

Suzuki Swift diesel revealed

The most practical move as far as fuel efficiency is concerned isn’t really going electric. Shifting from fuel that only needs minutes to refill to something that takes hours to recharge is a step back in motoring. If you want a car that can go more kilometers at less cost than sweet sweet gasoline, then diesel’s your best bet. Never mind if diesel engines has that tak-tak-tak engine noise.
