Suzuki Hybrid Cars


Suzuki has never been a brand to follow the crowd. Its models offer drivers something different, putting the fun back into motoring while delivering outstanding performance. The same can be said of its approach to eco-friendly engineering. The Japanese marque has introduced Suzuki SHVS – Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki – which takes conventional hybrid technology and raises it to the next level.

Not only does SHVS reduce CO2 emissions, improve fuel economy and lower running costs, it’s also lighter and takes up less space than regular hybrid systems, enabling models to retain their responsive handling and punchy performance. At Hodgson Suzuki in Newcastle, we’re proud to offer the latest Suzuki SHVS vehicles for customers to explore.

New Suzuki Hybrids

Suzuki currently offers the Ignis and Swift models as SHVS options. The Hybrid system is available on the Ignis SZ5 variant, coupling a 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine with the electric motor and offering both two- and four-wheel drive options. Combined fuel economy reaches an impressive 54.1mpg, and choosing the ALLGRIP model means you can take your adventures further afield without compromising on efficiency.

The Swift SZ5 model also comes with Hybrid options, available with both the 1.0-litre Boosterjet and 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engines. Again, you have the choice of two- and four-wheel drivetrains, and combined fuel economy reaches 51.8mpg. Pick the Boosterjet unit and you’ll enjoy the high power and torque that have made the model so popular, while choosing the version with ALLGRIP gives you the freedom to tackle more challenging conditions while keeping CO2 emissions low.
