Suzuki November 2015 Newsletter


Suzuki has a new way of life – the Vitara. This month, the Suzuki family grew by one with the rejuvenation of this classic model. The smooth lines and the superb handling make this ever-so-stylish Suzuki a reason to celebrate, and our accessories packs are perfect for Urban Warriors or Adrenaline Junkies.

Car guru Spike Ballantine did a road test of the Vitara for RPM television show, and he loved it. That was only the beginning of the Vitara’s journey through South Africa. The official launch featured a trip along the beautiful South African coast-line, including motoring media as well as two lucky Suzuki fans and their partners. Mrs. South Africa 2016 – the lovely Candice Abrahams – also became part of the Vitara fever when we handed over the keys to a brand new car, which she drives for the year of her reign!

A perfect way to end the year!

Nearing the end of the year is often a stressful time, but the Suzuki 4×4 club in Gauteng decided to get together and let their hair down, sending off the year together as a Suzuki family.

With Jimnys, Grand Vitaras and SJ410s (from 1984!) in attendance, the group gathered for the weekend at the Leeuwenkloof Environmental Facility – a 700ha privately owned farm which is part of the Cradle of Humankind heritage site. In true Suzuki spirit, the group kicked off the celebrations by helping out at the Hartbeespoort Animal Welfare Society, where they spent time with the animals, feeding and bathing them; petting and cuddling them. One Suzuki 4×4 club member went the extra mile and managed to organize for a truckload of food from Supreme Pet to be delivered! Although helping out those in need is its own reward, each club member who joined received a goodie bag sponsored by Suzuki South Africa.

Back on the Leeuwenkloof Environmental Facility, the group set up camp, and readied themselves for some Suzuki action. The challenging terrain gave the Jimny drivers a chance to impress with their off-road capabilities. The beautiful views and a cave walk kept everyone entertained.

The weekend ended with a braai and a prize-giving to some very worthy Suzuki 4×4 Club Members.

The club is looking forward to an even more exciting 2016, filled with Suzuki adventures and new friendships forming.

The club would like to thank Suzuki South Africa, Bridgestone SA, Opposite Lock, and Wizerd Off-Road Accessories for their ongoing support.

Suzuki hosts two of their fans at the Vitara VIP launch

There is no better way to celebrate than with our fans, so we invited a two of them, Linda Williams and Franco Diedricks, to join us at the launch of the brand new Vitara with their partners.  The pair were selected through a social media competition and were treated to a VIP experience at the official SA media launch.

After being flown to George, the VIP guests attended the Media Launch, taking part in the excitement of the day. As the first of the public to try out the new Vitara, they went on a tour along the beautiful South African coastline wearing their stylish new Suzuki Jackets. From George, the group went to Prince Alfred via Spitskop Pass, before ending up in Knysna. Enjoying a delicious lunch at the East Head Café rounded off a perfect day of seeing South Africa from the view of the Suzuki Vitara.


Thank you for joining the Suzuki Team. We hope your journey with us continues.

mrs sa

The second generation Vitara is Suzuki’s flawless new model, and so it is fitting that the beautiful Mrs. South Africa 2016 – Candice Abrahams – was given the keys to a brand new Vitara on 20 November 2015. The handover took place at the Suzuki Head Office, and the lovely Ms. Abrahams was treated to a full presentation of the brand.

Mrs. South Africa is the ultimate pageant competition for married South African women, and raises funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

The car will be in her possession for a year, and will ensure that she arrives everywhere in safety, comfort and – most importantly – style! With its sleek new design, the Vitara will ensure that Mrs. South Africa will turn heads as she fulfills her duties as a pageant winner – from attending workshops to raising awareness for CANSA.

Live the beautiful life – book a test-drive of the Suzuki Vitara today.
