Suzuki Splash goes on sale in Japan
Harish Kumar, Hi, I'm Harish Kumar, fondly known as Harry. Two words explain me - Car Nut.
The Splash just made its debut in Suzuki’s home market just about a week back – Japan. It offers brisk performance with outstanding roominess and comfort. The Splash is available from Suzuki dealers in Japan from 21 October 2008. India launch??
The Splash is Suzuki’s fourth world strategic model. It was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007 and has earned high praise since going on sale in Europe this spring. It’s built in Hungary by Suzuki production subsidiary Magyar Suzuki and is the first Suzuki-branded model to be imported into Japan. We think the Indian plant would have served it better as it is closer. Don’t you think so?
Suzuki created the Splash using a platform based on that of the Swift, which is renowned for its high level of driving performance. It newly developed the engine, body, chassis, and seats and tuned them through extensive tests on European roads in pursuit of world-class performance, handling, and ride comfort. It’s rounded rear-end design with sharp lines, bold contours make a strong statement and gives it maximized road presence.
The Splash has a youthful exterior design that’s also the result of extensive work in Europe. A tall body enables the Splash to be compact on the outside but roomy on the inside, allows easy ingress and egress, and permits great passenger and luggage carrying convenience.
Suzuki targets domestic monthly sales of 500 units in Japan. Expect this car to be in India by June-July next year.
