Suzuki South Africa
In 2009, Suzuki turned 100 years old and still strives to continue delivering on the wide range of cars, 4WD’s, motorcycles and marine products that offer excellent value for money and exceptional reliability.
Suzuki, though, does come from pretty humble beginnings. Michio Suzuki founded the company in Hamamatsu, Japan in 1909 as a producer of Looms, a device used for weaving textiles.
During the post WWII period, Suzuki’s motorized bike- the Power Free- earned a reputation for quality and reliability. It was followed up by the 125 cc Colleda motorcycle and the pioneering Suzulight lightweight car that stimulated Japan’s automotive revolution. Michio Suzuki’s focus was on a reliable, affordable methods of transportation.
Each of these vehicles were significant developments as they were engineered by optimizing the most advanced technologies of the period.
Since 1955, Suzuki Motor Corporation has grown from strength to strength and is today available in 192 countries worldwide.
Suzuki has been given so many titles, it’s become a little difficult to keep track. Well, one of these awards is particularly meaningful for Suzuki South Africa because it is an acknowledgement of not just a few of the machines we manufacture, but for the great work and fantastic service Suzuki as a whole company provides. Car magazine bestowed the honour upon Suzuki of being the Motor Company of 2009, yet another benchmark for Suzuki on it’s way to being an SA great!

People all over South Africa are sitting up and taking notice of Suzuki products, from the Grand Vitara all the way to the sporty Swift.
