Press Releases

For information only – Not for Publication.

The Suzuki Press Office is very pleased to advise of the recent re-opening of its Press car operations but please be aware of our high volume of backlogged bookings from the lockdown period and the fact that the number of bookings has had to be reduced in the short to medium term.

We would estimate that any all new bookings would be scheduled and delivered from mid-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.

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, the Press Office has now taken a further step in ensuring the highest level of sanitisation at handover and collection in addition to manual sanitisation of all handles and touch points.

This has been achieved with the use of a SANYCAR device that our driving team will run in a press car at handover to you. SANYCAR is highly proven and is the ideal device to fully sanitise and deodorise both the interior and air-conditioning system, it is a lightweight unit powered with electrical energy via an inverter and the vehicle USB socket. The full sanitisation cycle will take around 20 minutes and will then be repeated at collection before our driving team take the car.

SANYCAR has an exclusive “Safe System” that allows reconversion of residual ozone to oxygen in a safe, fast and completely automatised way. Thanks to this device, it is possible to deliver and use the vehicle soon after the end of the treatment.

Suzuki is utilising support drivers to eliminate the use of public transport and we appreciate your flexibility on delivery and collection times and handover to you personally, particularly when our drivers are travelling over longer distances.

Jess and myself will continue to work remotely for the next month or so at least. We are of course always contactable via email or mobile to answer any questions you may have.

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