Hard working Suzuki Super Carry debuts

A familiar name in many Asian markets since 1961, Suzuki Auto South Africa has introduced its Super Carry light commercial bakkie to South Africa for very first time.

Built by Suzuki’s Maruti division in India, and known under a variety names in different markets, the no-frills cab-over Super Carry is aimed primarily at small businesses, with the Japanese automaker claiming it to offer “exceptional load carrying capacity linked to low running costs”.

Given its workhorse credentials, the Super Carry is sparse on everyday mod-cons with its main drawing cars being a payload of 750 kg, ground clearance of 175 mm, and a load bay width measuring 1.49 metres.

Like its Indian sibling, the Super Carry is powered by Suzuki’s tried-and-tested 1.4-litre GB petrol engine that makes 54 kW and 101 N.m of torque. A five-speed manual gearbox sends drive to the rear wheels.

A three year / 100 000 km warranty is included in the Super Carry’s R129 900 asking price.
