Suzuki's Super Carry is a Must for Cost-Conscious Businesses (w/ Brochure)


Budding entrepreneurs and cost-conscious businesses have a new ally in the all-new Suzuki Super Carry. Launched by Suzuki Philippines (SPH), the Super Carry is poised to bring the brand to even greater heights after posting an 11-percent growth year-on-year so far.

Catering to small and medium-sized businesses and enterprises, the all-new Super Carry builds upon Suzuki’s expertise in the micro and small vehicle segment. It answers the requirements for a strong, high-performance utility vehicle that’s cost-effective to own and maintain.

It packs a computer-controlled Euro-4 certified 793-cc 2-cylinder diesel engine with 32 horsepower at 3,500 rpm and 75 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm enabling it to achieve up to 22 km/L. The eco-friendly and fuel-efficient Super Carry has emissions that contain 68 percent less particulates, 57 percent less nitrogen oxides, and 50 percent less carbon dioxide. Apart from being good for the environment, it can also carry a maximum payload of 735 kilograms on its 3.25 square-meter bed. A small turning radius of 4.3-meters enables it to navigate even the tightest of city streets.



Though designed ultimately as a utility vehicle, the Super Carry doesn’t discount comfort and convenience features that helps reduce fatigue. The driver’s seat is adjustable up to 90 millimeters while an extended cushion on the passenger side allows for enough space for the driver to lie down in-between long drives. It also has a 1-DIN audio unit with a built-in speaker that allows AM/FM tuning, USB/SD card interface, and an auxiliary audio jack.

Having the engine underneath the passenger compartment, the Super Carry uses thick glass fiber heat shields for better insulation while the bulb/balloon-type weather strip lessens noise, vibration, and harshness.

Fitted with various theft prevention measures, it has a lock-on fuel tank cap, a secured spare tire mounting bracket, and a battery with lock provision.

In terms of safety, the outboard seats are equipped with 3-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seatbelts while front disc brakes and rear drum brakes with a Load Sensing Proportioning Valve (LSPV) give a more stable brake feel in different load conditions. It’s also made of high-tensile and galvanized chassis materials that not only limits intrusion inside the cabin during a crash, but also provides more resistance against rust.



“The Suzuki Super Super Carry is brought to the Philippine market with the objective of improving business processes and operations especially among small and medium sized businesses which comprise more than 90 percent of the overall in the country,” said Mr. Shuzo Hoshikura, Suzuki Philippines General Manager for Automobiles. “We seek to help more businesses flourish and reach their maximum potential and what better way is there than through this reliable workhorse.”

The Suzuki Super Carry is available in four body types: Super Carry Truck (P 479,000), Super Carry Utility Van (P 565,000), Super Carry Cargo Van (P 529,000), and Super Carry Jeepney Body (P 550,000). And for those who want a gasoline-powered vehicle, Suzuki Philippines is now offering its APV with a utility vehicle (UV) body. Equipped with a dual air conditioner system, it retails for P 630,000.

    1. They're kinda like a labrador and a golden retriever. Similar but different.

    2. ^A friend's account owning a brand new Tata:
      engine vibrates too much on idle, difficult to drive during heavy downpour (fogging mirrors at closed windows), tricky handling at 50kph rolling highway terrain, possibility of overheating on a 30-50km (uphill) drive, fuel efficient, cheap parts. This is best suited to replace such PUVs at MOA-Baclaran.

  2. There are so many ukay ukay suzukis. Some selling as low as 60k, depending on the condition and type if it's a 2 or 4 wheel drive. It's a tough sell for these.

    1. These are Euro-4 certified, brand new Suzukis, not ukay-ukay, dirty, used multicabs. Not to mention that some variants of the old ones run on gas. Piss-poor engines at that.

  3. 2016 and they couldn't even give it a bit more power (at least 900cc maybe?) and even just a driver's airbag. -_-

    1. ^Agree with the airbag, these car companies are cost cutting sacrificing safety. This may bump the tag of the basic model up to about 700k.
      As for the 100cc additional displacement, how much would it add to emission, torque and power? Right now:

      "It packs a computer-controlled Euro-4 certified 793-cc 2-cylinder diesel engine with 32 horsepower at 3,500 rpm and 75 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm enabling it to achieve up to 22 km/L. The eco-friendly and fuel-efficient Super Carry has emissions that contain 68 percent less particulates, 57 percent less nitrogen oxides, and 50 percent less carbon dioxide."

  4. ^ I'm thinking at least an additional 10 horsepower and 15 Nm of torque (since torque is more important for these haulers). Seems something to neglect, but still adds up.

    And I rather take an extra airbag for safety reasons. I just hope that it won't cost up to 700k. I'll gladly pay an additional P20 - P40k for that safety equipment that's basic even with the Mirage, but not P100k+
