Suzuki Philippines has just announced the official pricing for its two new compact cars – the 1.2L Swift and the seven-seater Ertiga. Both will be available nationwide this coming July.
The Swift 1.2 is the newest model in the Swift lineup — a lineup that’s been well-received by people in the past. Its 1.2-liter engine promises better fuel efficiency and sports a maximum output of 87 Hp @ 6,000 RPM, while boasting a maximum torque of 114 Nm @ 4,000 RPM.
It will be available in manual and automatic transmissions at Php608,000 and Php648,000, respectively. The Suzuki Swift 1.2 will also be coming in different hues including Blazing Red, Glistening Grey, Silky Silver, Pearl Arctic White, and Midnight Black.
Now we go to the seven-seater Ertiga which the company has classified as LUV or Life Utility Vehicle. This is basically a hybrid car combining “the compactness and maneuverability of a hatchback, the style and comfort of a sedan, and the space and stature of a sports-utility vehicle (SUV).”
Underneath the hood, it has a 1.4-liter engine with a maximum power of 95 Hp @ 6,000 RPM and a torque that maxes out at 130Nm @ 4,000 RPM. It is available in 4 variants namely: Ertiga GA M/T (Php 619,000), Ertiga GL M/T (Php712,000), Ertiga GL A/T (Php 752,000), and the Ertiga GLX A/T (Php812,000). Just like the Swift, it will come in different colors like Serene Blue, Firebrick Red, Granite Grey, Dusky Browm, Superior White, and Silky Silver.
