Suzuki APV’s Australian future clouded

The future of the unique Suzuki APV in Australia from 2018 onwards appears to be under a cloud, because of vehicle emission regulations. The current APV is the smallest van on sale here, and therefore has attracted a small but loyal following among largely city-based delivery drivers and others of that ilk.

Softened new Suzuki Grand Vitara coming

A new Suzuki Grand Vitara is definitely on the way inside the next few years, but don’t expect the next-generation model to retain the current car’s comparatively hardcore off-road abilities. Instead, you can expect the next iteration to follow the smaller ‘regular' Suzuki Vitara’s lead and adopt a more road-focussed demeanour and construction, to better compete with rivals such as the Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson in the hugely popular medium SUV market...

New Suzuki Jimny Sierra to remain a hardcore ladder-frame 4x4

The confirmed successor to the much-loved Suzuki Jimny Sierra (current model pictured above) will retain the famed off-road ability and toughness, the company says. Expect familiar ladder frame construction, off-road suspension and reduction gearing (low range) to remain part of the next iteration, which will also sport more safety equipment, cool retro styling language and potentially a downsized BoosterJet turbo engine — though the latter is not confirmed...

Suzuki Ignis Sport turbo on wish-list

Suzuki Australia is keen to get its hands on a hotted-up version of the high-riding new Ignis city car as soon as possible, potentially using a version of the Baleno’s turbo engine. However, the small issue of whether such a car is even in development lingers, though given the old Ignis' use in rallying (as pictured below at The Acropolis), we’d imagine it’s been at least considered...
