Press Releases

For information only – Not for Publication.

The Suzuki Press Office is very pleased to advise of the re-opening of its Press car operations from Wednesday 17th June.

If your press car had to be cancelled prior to lockdown in late March, we will be in contact to reschedule your road test booking but please be aware of a backlog for new bookings following the cancellation of our Hybrid technology event.

We would estimate that any all new bookings would be scheduled and delivered from early August and we thank you for your patience and understanding. 48V Hybrid models of Swift Sport, Vitara and S-Cross are the newest additions to the press fleet.

Following the official COVID-19 measures from the UK Government, the Suzuki Press Office has put plans in place to continue to ensure we’re doing all we can to support the National and Global effort against the virus.

Suzuki is committed to its duty of care to ensure its staff and the journalists and suppliers we work with are as safe and protected as possible.

Full sanitisation of press vehicle controls, handles, dashboard screens and other touch points will of course be carried out by Adrian Honour and his team. In addition to this, Suzuki has invested in some further sanitisation technology applied at vehicle handover and collection to further ensure our commitment to good health.

Press vehicles will be delivered with a support driver to eliminate the need for any reliance on public transport. Please be aware that we will of course be as flexible as possible and much appreciate your cooperation on delivery or collection time slots, particularly over longer distances.

Jess will return to work on 17th June and we will both continue to work remotely. I am of course always contactable via email or mobile to answer any questions you may have.

We hope you and your families stay safe and well and we look forward to meeting again in the future. With all best wishes from Suzuki Press and PR.
