Suzuki Hybrid – news in brief

Suzuki GB PLC is unique among mainstream car brands in offering hybrid technology as standard across its entire passenger car range and is pleased to announce its latest Finance offers on the Swace and Across models, which are available until the end of September 2021.

With a customer saving already in place, the Swace Hybrid is available from £24,499 and now a Finance Deposit Allowance of £2,000 is also offered which can be used either to reduce the customer’s deposit or to reduce monthly payments if the customer deposit is not reduced. As an example, for the SZ-T model based on a 49-month agreement, a customer deposit of £4,108 is followed by 48 monthly payments of just £219 with a final optional payment of £11,398 to keep the car at the end of the term. The representative APR is 5.9% and the annual mileage limit for this model is 10,000.

Moving up to the SZ5 model increases monthly payments by just £30 over the same duration and with only a slightly larger deposit of £4,269 required.

Swace is a stylish and versatile Estate Car with an athletic design, smooth and stable ride comfort, and advanced hybrid performance.

Standard specification is high and the SZ-T model includes Seven airbags, Pre-collision System (Automated Emergency Braking), Dual Zone automatic air conditioning, seven-inch LCD colour information screen, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto device connectivity, rear parking camera, eight-inch central dash touchscreen and Dynamic Radar Cruise control with full speed range.

SZ5 adds Smart Door locking, Simple-Intelligent Park Assist, Front and Rear Park distance sensors, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross traffic Alert and centre console tray with wireless charger. Swace is manufactured in the UK and was the second model to be introduced from the Suzuki / Toyota collaborative Business agreement. It is also exported to Europe.

The Across PHEV was the first model introduced from Suzuki / Toyota in 2020 and offers a 46 miles EV range with CO2 emissions of just 22g/km (WLTP regulation). This ultra low figure is of particular benefit to company car users with class leading (2021/22) BIK liability of just £106 per month for a 40 percent taxpayer.

The following chart illustrates Across as the best in class amongst its direct competitors.

These figures further emphasise that Across is an ideal choice for Business users and Suzuki is currently offering a very attractive BCH (Business Contract Hire) arrangement until the end of September at £369 per month. This is based on a 48 month term with 9 initial monthly rentals paid and a 10,000 mile per annum limit.

Across is available with one very high specification which includes E-Four electronic 4×4, Pre-collision System (Automated Emergency Braking), leather seats, heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, Dual Zone Automatic Air Conditioning, auto function opening tailgate and 9-inch multimedia touch screen.
