2017 Suzuki Landy MPV launched in Japan
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Third-gen model priced at 2,500,200 yen.
Suzuki has launched the 2017 Suzuki Landy MPV in Japan for sale. Initial deliveries of the third gen Landy will commence from December 20, and it’s priced between 2,500,200 yen and 3,248,640 yen.
Like the outgoing model, the new Suzuki Landy is a rebadged version of the Nissan Serena MPV, which was launched in its latest generation in August. Like the Serena, the third gen Landy features a bolder grille with meaty dual chrome slats, new headlamps that are split in the middle, sportier bumper, black D-pillar for a floating roof look, and smaller vertical taillamps.
The eight-seater comes equipped automatic emergency braking (standard across all models), lane departure warning, parking assist, capless fuel filler system and a tailgate that can be opened in two different ways to ease loading and unloading in tight areas. The second row seats are claimed to offer more than two feet of fore/aft travel to optimize interior space for both passengers and luggage.
The Suzuki Landy is available in petrol and hybrid variants. The former packs a 2.0L 4-cyl petrol engine that produces 150 PS and 200 Nm of torque, while the latter combines a 1.9 kW electric motor to the 2.0L powertrain. Both are equipped with CVT units, while the hybrid variant can be had with an AWD system.
