JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Suzuki Auto SA is celebrating its recent sales success and its 75 000 sales in South Africa with the introduction of special editions of the Swift and Ignis.
The latest additions, the Swift 1.2 GL Special Edition (or SE) and two new versions of the Ignis – the 1.2 GL SE and 1.2 GLX SE – are now available at Suzuki dealers nationwide.
André Venter, Suzuki Auto SA’s divisional manager for sales and marketing, told The Corner in a media release: “The Swift SE and two Ignis SE units offer a way to express their unique style and individuality. They are exclusive versions of our top-selling models and we’re confident that they will find favour with fans of the brand and the specific models.”
”The SE models,” Suzuki says, ”show their individuality with new accessories and features. The list on the Swift GL SE, for instance, includes unique decals, a blue spoiler over the rear window, door visors and a sill guard.
TWO IGNIS MODELS
”We’ve also added the new European-style blue-trimmed grille and the cabin has a touchscreen infotainment panel equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.”
The Ignis range offers two SE models…
The first is a 1.2 GL SE with black door-cladding, a set of rigid mud flaps, red trim on the grille and red side decals.
The Ignis GLX SE adds a white grille surround and centre bar garnish and new foglight bezels. ”The styling,” Suzuki adds, ”is further enhanced by white side decals and door visors to dispel rain and wind, and a rear spoiler.”
Venter again: “We know that customers who buy an SE like to stand out so we’ve introduced them in a choice of colours. – but in very limited numbers.”
The Swift GL SE offers white or silver units in limited runs of 50 units. These same colours are available on the Ignis GL SE, but only in 25 units each.
The first 50 customers can have their SE in blue with white highlights.
As with all new Suzuki car customers, buyers of the SE models receive a two-year or 30 000km* service plan and a five-year or 200 000km* promotional warranty.
*Whichever comes first.
