BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Borneo Bulletin/ANN) - The all-new Suzuki Ertiga made its debut at the atrium of The Mall, Gadong last night.

The reveal of the new urban MPV was witnessed by Growth Manager of Suzuki Motor Corporation Asia Automobile Group Kazuyuki Yamashita and Boustead Sdn Bhd Executive Manager Lim Jin Lee, as well as management of banks and financial institutions, Suzuki customers and the general public.

Boustead Sdn Bhd is the sole distributor of the Suzuki automotive in Brunei.

“The history of the Suzuki Ertiga runs back to 2012, when the first generation was introduced and paved its way to over 70 countries and regions in ASEAN, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa,” shared Lim Jin Lee in his opening speech during the launching ceremony.

He added, “It was highly acclaimed internationally due to its capability to accommodate seven people within compact dimensions and offers a smart combination of driving performance, fuel efficiency and versatility. The all-new Suzuki Ertiga is built based on these strengths while enhancing style and comfort into a whole new level.”

With the theme ‘My Family, My Thrill and My Joy’, the All-New Suzuki Ertiga is the second generation of its kind, retaining it’s predecessor’s DNA, for example the Stylish Compact Seven Seater. The new MPV can accommodate seven adults, with the versatility of the back row seats for any outdoor activities and agility of the car without comprising the passengers’ while driving.

Redesigned with a more muscular and bolder look, the all-new Ertiga comes with a new 1.5-litre petrol, delivering a more fuel efficient and smooth performance.

The MPV is also equipped with safety technologies including the ‘Hill Hold Control’ preventing the car from rolling backwards for up to two seconds after the driver removes pressure from the brake pedal, and the ‘HEARTECT’ which lowers the weight and disperse energy more efficiently for greater collision safety.

Suzuki will also host a roadshow at the atrium of The Mall Gadong, showcasing the all-new Ertiga as well as other Suzuki models and fun activities, from today to tomorrow.
