See what Hybrid addition to the Suzuki Range means for you:
1. Lower Running Costs
Hybrid has many advantages, but the main one you'll notice is the reduced costs of running a Hybrid versus a non-hybrid petrol model.
Based on the official WLTP combined fuel consumption figures, hybrid consistently improves fuel economy by between 10% - 15%*. The hybrid system provides electrical assistance to the petrol engine in certain conditions, so less fuel is needed and the hybrid battery stores energy that would normally be lost during braking and deceleration, so it can be used again. All without you having to compromise how you drive.
2. Lower CO2 Emissions
Hybrid cars are becoming more and more popular, and one big reason is the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions they offer. Having an electric motor that does some of the driving and therefore takes load off the petrol engine, means greater efficiency and less CO2.
Based on the official WLTP combined fuel consumption figures, hybrid consistently improves fuel economy by between 10% - 15%*, which is an impressive reduction by any standards, but particularly impressive for a system that doesn't require a huge change to how you drive.
3. No Need to Plug-In to Charge
With Suzuki hybrid, there’s no charging required. The car charges the battery itself, by recovering energy that would normally be lost during braking and deceleration and storing it in a second battery.
4. A Smoother Drive
Hybrid doesn't just improve the efficiency of Suzuki models: it also improves the way they drive. The system includes an integrated starter generator (ISG), which acts as a starter motor when the engine has auto stopped (at traffic lights for example) and the engine restart is smoother and quieter than in cars with a traditional starter motor.
On Swift Sport, Vitara and S-Cross, the hybrid system also helps to improve performance by enhancing the engine’s torque output at low rpm, using the ISG and energy stored in the lithium ion battery making the driving experience feel smoother and more responsive.
5. You Don't Need to Change the Way You Drive
A Suzuki hybrid runs just like a regular car with a petrol engine, so you don't have to change how you drive.
The hybrid components are extremely compact and light meaning Suzuki's remain light and fun to drive and keep their practical interior space without any compromise from the hybrid system.
All you have to do in your new Suzuki hybrid is drive it as you've driven every other car you've ever owned whilst enjoying the smoother, more efficient performance, and saving money.
