  • First-time Suzuki owner Whiley chooses compact SUV for its styling, space and practicality
  • The Suzuki Vitara SZ-T starts from only £199 per month with latest summer finance offers

Jordanne Whiley MBE, the Paralympic medallist and multiple grand slam-winning wheelchair tennis player, has collected a brand new Suzuki Vitara SZ-T from the family-run Halesowen Motor House dealership on Dudley Road in Halesowen.

The 24-year-old chose the specially-adapted Galactic Grey compact SUV for its stylish looks and comprehensive specification. Coming with air conditioning, satellite navigation, electric windows and 17-inch alloy wheels as standard, as well as up to 710 litres of luggage capacity, Jordanne required a car which would accommodate two wheelchairs and several bags for her training and competitive commitments.

Jordanne Whiley MBE, said: “This is the first Suzuki that I have ever owned, and I fell in love with the Vitara as soon as I saw it. It’s very spacious, highly practical and economical to run, which is ideal, as I travel up and down the country and need to transport a lot of sports gear between venues. Furthermore, with the added benefit of an affordable package on the Motability Scheme, it’s the perfect formula.”

Andy Cooper, General Manager at Halesowen Motor House, added: “We were delighted when Jordanne got in touch with us to help her meet her requirements, and we are very pleased that she now has a car that ticks all the boxes. The Suzuki Vitara has proved one of the most popular purchases on the Motability programme, a worry-free leasing initiative which we have always been very passionate about. We wish her many years of enjoyable motoring as she starts her journey with Suzuki.”
