Suzuki GB PLC is pleased to announce the appointment of a new franchise to its dealer network, bringing the total number of dealers to 153.
The new dealership, Lanehouse Suzuki, is situated at The Grove, Dorchester, and is ideally situated for local customers to find out more about Suzuki's stylish and fun to drive product range.
Commenting on the new opening, Dale Wyatt, General Manager of Dealer Development, Suzuki GB, said: "We are pleased to welcome Lanehouse Suzuki to the network. They join us at an exciting time having just launched the latest SX4 with further product developments planned for later in 2010.£
Dominic Avery from Lanehouse Suzuki commented: "I am pleased to have the addition of the Suzuki brand to the Lanehouse Group of companies. I know Suzuki will add to the continued and sustained success of our family run business in Dorset and I believe this manufacturer will provide our customers, in and around the Dorchester area with a fresh new look at the car market. This is also a land mark for our company, having traded for 35 years with just one franchise within the Group. We open our doors as Lanehouse Suzuki on the 10th March and cordially invite customers to visit the site and meet our friendly team."
Suzuki offers a wide range of cars including the highly successful Suzuki Alto, Swift, SX4, Splash, Jimny Compact 4X4 and Grand Vitara models. Suzuki Alto is one of the lowest emitting 5-door petrol cars on sale at just 103 g/km with a combined fuel economy of 64mpg and costing just £35 per year in VED.
Suzuki has four low emission (120 g/km or less) vehicles in its range which are proving very popular as customers look to make cost savings where they can in today's current economic climate.
One of the latest models on display at Lanehouse Suzuki is the Suzuki SX4 Sport X-over which received some minor exterior styling refreshments for 2010 as well as upgrades to the interior including a new design dashboard and new instruments with driver information display.
Suzuki SX4 fuses the dynamism of SUVs with the elegance of passenger cars and gives poise and presence beyond the model's compact size. The latest model is available with a new Euro 5 compliant 1.6-litre petrol engine which offers 10 per cent more power; 10 per cent lower fuel consumption and 13 per cent fewer emissions, now just 143g/km for the manual transmission model.Published 12 March 2010
