Suzuki Motor Corporation’s bestselling compact car, the Suzuki Swift, marks a milestone having sold 5 million units worldwide this April, 11 years since its introduction.
In the Philippines, Suzuki Swift was launched in 2011 and since then has been a favorite among first-time car owners and young drivers in the local market. This subcompact car is among the top sales drivers of Suzuki Philippines for several years, and it significantly contributed to the total sales figures of the company in the first quarter of 2016.
SPH General Manager for Automobile Shuzo Hoshikura says, “We are proud of what the Suzuki Swift has achieved with five million unit sales worldwide. We have always known that this subcompact car would do well in the market due to its uniquely spirited character, and we are doubly delighted that it reached this milestone at a relatively short time. We are proud to note that it is also doing great locally. On behalf of Suzuki Philippines, we would like to thank those who supported the vehicle in our market.”
