The cost of most Suzuki cars and SUVs has increased by as much as $3500 as the budget brand moves into new price territory.
Suzuki Australia — the dealer of Suzuki vehicles in every state and territory except Queensland — has increased prices on its line of hatchbacks and SUVs by up to $3,500, although no additional equipment has been added.
As of September 7, prices are up by between $1,000 and $3,500 depending on the model — or $1,000 to $3,000 before road costs — with the largest price increases going to the car Vitara Turbo small SUV.
Drive-away prices for the Suzuki Jimny are not listed online. Before street costs, however, prices are up $2000 for September to $30,490 plus street costs for the manual Lite variant.
“Recent price increases are related to parts and material shortages as well as increases in shipping costs,” said a spokesman for Suzuki Australia journey.
The latest price hikes follow increases of as much as $1000 earlier this year — and a series of increases made last year.
This means that within two years the price is the cheapest Suzuki Swift is up a staggering 37 percent – from $18,990 to $25,990 drive-away – during the base ignis has gone from $18,990 to $23,490 drive-away.
Before road costs, the price of the standard manual-transmission Suzuki Jimny has increased by at least 25 percent since launch in early 2019 — or $6,000 — from $23,990 to $29,990 plus road costs.
Standard specs remain unchanged with the latest Suzuki price increases. The Swift range was upgraded earlier this year with the new GL S and GL S Plus models replacing the GL and GL Plus classes.
Price lists provided by Suzuki Australia show a $1000 pre-road price increase for the Swift GL and GL Plus, which are not listed on Suzuki’s website – but are still in stock at dealerships as new.
A heavily updated product was also launched in September Suzuki S Cross, which is up $10,000 from its 2021 predecessor to $12,500. As a new model, this is not directly affected by the September price hikes.
A full price list is below, before and after road charges.
