Reports estimate the value of the Saudi automotive sector at over SAR26bn, inclusive of direct sales, spare parts and accessories, and after-sales services. Recent statistics from the Board of the Saudi Chambers of Commerce confirm that KSA has evolved into one of the largest automotive markets, rolling out around 700 thousand vehicles in 2011.
Saudi automotive companies typically augment their market share by driving up competitiveness in genuine spare parts, providing superb after-sales services and introducing new vehicles for different audiences whether individuals or companies. With this in mind, Suzuki Saudia, the sole distributor of Suzuki vehicles in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and part of the Bamarouf Group, has decided to introduce the new 2013 Suzuki Swift DZire sedan. The move reflects the company's strategic expansion within the Saudi automotive sector, especially as the Kingdom is enjoying steady economic and business growth and is witnessing heightened demand for vehicles.
Maher Al Nabawi, Deputy General Manager of Suzuki Saudia, said: "The Saudi automotive market is very promising, with demand on a constant upswing. We intend to capitalize on positive market conditions by introducing the all-new 2013 Suzuki Swift DZire right after the month of Ramadan. We believe that the market response to our new vehicle will exceed our expectations, given how the Swift DZire is poised to corner around 50 per cent of car sales in India. We are confident that this success story will be replicated in Saudi Arabia. The Swift DZire will soon be arriving at our showrooms to meet the needs of the Saudi market."
The Suzuki Swift DZire sports a K-12 engine powered by an impressive Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology which synchronizes valve opening and closing to deliver enhanced power and efficiency, smoother acceleration, and quicker response.
Its suspensions – the front integrating a MacPherson strut with coil spring and the rear featuring a torsion beam with coil spring – provide higher mounting rigidity and confident stability. This results in a more enjoyable and steady drive. Moreover, the new 15-inch ventilated front disc and the rear drum brakes along with a Brake Assist System (BAS) provide greater braking efficiency even in emergency situations. Additionally, the "Swift Dzire" sedan also maintains dual airbags, an ABS (Anti-lock Breaking System), fog lamps, a CD player with an mp3 player as well as a USB outlet, with remote control. And finally the vehicle is portrayed with alloy wheels, signal lights and a power package.
"The 2013 Suzuki Swift DZire is perfect for small- and medium-sized families, young drivers, and sedan enthusiasts who want a small mid-sized vehicle that can deliver high standards of performance, safety, luxury, and durability. Drivers will definitely enjoy its workhorse capabilities and how it deftly handles on the roads," concluded Al Nabawai.
