The 2015 Suzuki Every MPV has been launched in Japan with prices starting at 923,400 Yen (INR 4.81 lakh) for the commercial version Every and 1,425,600 Yen (INR 7.43 lakh) for the passenger version Every Wagon. The first model came in the year 1964, and since then the Japanese car maker has sold more than 2.69 million units.
As revealed in leaked brochure shots earlier, the Japan-only model gets an updated exterior with a new bumper, roof-mounted stop lamp, and the door handle on the sliding door is now vertical. The van gets 14-inch alloy wheels for its high end trims.
The 12th generation Every is powered by a 660 cc 3-cylinder engine that makes 49 PS at 5,700 rpm and 62 Nm at 3,500 rpm in naturally aspirated form; and 64 PS at 6,000 rpm and 85 Nm at 3,000 rpm in the turbocharged avatar. Three gearbox options are extended: a 5-speed manual, a 5-speed automated manual, and a 4-speed conventional automatic. Both 2WD and 4WD drivetrains are available.
A lighter frame owing to the use of high strength steel enables the new 5-speed manual gearbox variant to be lighter by 40 kg in comparison to the corresponding model from last year. The vehicle gets what Suzuki claims is ‘class leading’ luggage space, and features like electric sliding doors and electric auto step.
The safety aspect of the variants has been updated, with radar brake support as standard. Other features include ESP and hill hold control. Trim levels on the Every include GA, PA, PC, Join, and Join Turbo; while for the Every Wagon, these are JP Turbo, PZ Turbo, and PZ Turbo Special.
