Suzuki Solio, The Best Replacement for the Perodua Kenari
Suzuki Motor Corporation has just launched in Japan the new Solio, a wagon that gives great fuel economy, has a tall, roomy cabin within a compact body, and offers the user-friendliness of left- and right-hand sliding doors. The new Solio is for now, not yet available with Malaysian Suzuki dealers and will not be for some time coming. This is the best replacement product for the aging Perodua Kenari which has a strong and loyal following in Malaysia with all ages of drivers. With a possible high selling price now as it will be fully imported from Japan, the sales in Malaysia will be low, but a locally assembled version (coming from the Pekan plant) could be a sales winner and what is urgently needed to increase showroom traffic at all Suzuki dealers nationwide.
The new Solio reflects a concept of developing a tall, compact wagon that’s fun to drive, user-friendly, and outstandingly fuel-efficient. Its body is compact
enough for great maneuverability on city streets but contains a roomy cabin.
Convenient left- and right-hand rear sliding doors are complemented by a
one-touch double-folding rear seat that permits a variety of seat arrangements.
And a 1.2-litre engine delivers smooth, fuel-efficient performance. By being
easy to drive, easy to use, and economical, the new Solio delivers everything
expected of a compact car.
Suzuki created the new Solio to be an ideal choice for compact city car customers
looking to move upscale from minicars and for those looking to downsize to a
more compact model. Suzuki expects the new Solio to join the Swift as a pillar
of its sales growth in the compact category.
