Suzuki’s best-selling cars in South Africa – Pricing and features

Suzuki’s local sales have been on the rise since early 2020, and there are no signs of it slowing down.

The brand recorded their best-ever year of sales in South African in 2020, and have broken their monthly sales records for two consecutive months during February and March of 2021.

Although sales went well across the board for March, three models stood out as being the most popular in the South African market.

These are the:

  • Swift – 749 units sold
  • S-Presso – 527 units sold
  • Vitara Brezza – 390 units sold

Below we will find out what these cars offer, and why they might be this popular.

Suzuki Vitara Brezza

The Vitara Brezza is described by Suzuki as a nimble urban runabout, and it has been given the dimensions to match.

It has short overhangs and a short wheelbase, but a taller stance than its larger sibling, the Vitara.

Rugged exterior elements emphasise its crossover look, and decent ground clearance assists with nimbleness.

The entire range is fitted with a 7-inch infotainment display that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, all-round electric windows, and park distance control sensors at the rear.

Safety systems are standardised, too, and sees the car achieve a 4-star Global NCAP safety rating.

Powering the Vitara Brezza is a 1.5-litre engine that produces 77kW of power and 138Nm of torque.

The motor provides a combined fuel consumption of 6.2l/100km, and power is sent to the front wheels only.

The Suzuki Vitara Brezza range has a South African starting price of R244,900, with the range-topping model coming in at R309,900.

The price includes a 5-year/200,000km promotional warranty, and a 4-year/60,000km service plan.


Suzuki S-Presso

The Suzuki S-Presso is not only the cheapest vehicle the brand sells, but also the cheapest passenger vehicle in South Africa.

Inside you will find fabric seats, front electric windows, a manual air-conditioner, and a 7-inch infotainment display in the GL+ and S-Edition trims.

For safety it gets rear parking sensors, ABS with electronic brake force distribution, and an alarm and immobiliser system – but it is worth mentioning that the S-Presso is the only vehicle on this list with a 0-star Global NCAP safety rating.

A 1.0-litre motor generates 50kW and 90Nm in this hatchback, and combined fuel consumption is rated at 4.9l/100km.

The Suzuki S-Presso range has a South African starting price of R145,900, with the range-topping model coming in at R173,900.

The price includes a 5-year/200,000km promotional warranty, and a 2-year/30,000km service plan.


Suzuki Swift

The Swift recently received a mid-life upgrade that bumped up its standard specifications and gave it a newer look.

As a result it offers a fair bit of value in addition to style – even at the low-end.

The updated entry-level model offers air-conditioning, electric windows, and rear parking sensors – and the car can be upgraded to fit a reverse camera and a touchscreen infotainment system.

Safety is taken care of by electronic stability control, front and passenger airbags, ABS with emergency brake assist, and electronic brake force distribution.

This sees the Swift achieve a 4-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

At the front lies a 1.2-litre engine in the standard models, which is capable of delivering 61kW of power and 113Nm of torque.

The Sport model then gets a 1.4-litre motor that generates 103kW and 230Nm.

Claimed combined fuel consumption comes in at 4.9l/100km and 6.1l/100km respectively, and drive is sent to the front wheels no matter the specification.

The Suzuki Swift range has a South African starting price of R176,900, with the range-topping Sport model coming in at R356,900.

The price includes a 5-year/200,000km promotional warranty, and a 2-year/30,000km service plan.
