5 reasons to buy a Suzuki Hybrid - Startin Suzuki

FIVE REASONS TO BUY A SUZUKI HYBRID

Suzuki. HYBRID. It’s happening. See what this new addition to the Suzuki Range means for you:

  • LOWER RUNNING COSTS

HYBRID has many advantages, but the one that Suzuki drivers will 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%*. How? Well the HYBRID system provides electrical assistance to the petrol engine in certain conditions, so less fuel is needed. 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.

  • 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 radical change to how you drive.

  • NO CHARGING with Suzuki

Worried about charging? You don't need to be. 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 - so you don't need to think about it.

  • A SMOOTHER, DRIVE

HYBRID doesn't just improve your Suzuki’s efficiency: it also improves how it drives.

The system includes an integrated starter generator (ISG), which acts as a starter motor when the engine has auto stopped (for example at traffic lights). 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. So, it makes your driving experience feel smoother and more responsive.

  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT HOW 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.

Our hybrid components are extremely compact and light. That means, 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 Suzuki HYBRID is drive it as you've driven every other Suzuki you've ever owned (or any other car, for that matter), enjoying the smoother, more efficient performance, all the while saving a few pennies.
