Suzuki Indonesia has decided to do something special to start the year off with the launch of the facelifted Suzuki Carry. Normally, car manufacturers don’t launch or debut a model at the start of a new year. They normally do this towards the middle part of the first quarter. However, it seems Suzuki wants to break away from this normal with the update to its light commercial vehicle.
While not the most exciting debut, the latest feature to be added to the Suzuki Carry is substantial. The exterior of the Carry remains relatively the same as the older model, however, the Japanese brand has given it a new tougher looking bumper as well as a new grille design.
The bumper now comes with a new design with two new garnishes appearing on either side. The middle section of the bumper has also been worked on as it no longer comes with a lower faux grille. Speaking of grilles, It is important to note that its grille, the one found between the headlights, isn’t functional and only serves as a design element. Nonetheless, the new grille does add to the tougher look that Suzuki seems to be going with for the facelifted model.
Aside from the new looks, Suzuki also gave the Carry one new particular feature. While one would assume that it would be a new infotainment system or some sort of other amenities, that isn’t the case for this facelift. For this instance, Suzuki has chosen to go with a new additional safety feature instead, in the form of a fire extinguisher to come standard with the model. While it may not be a groundbreaking addition, it does add to the safety of the vehicle and will pay dividends if and when the time comes to use it.
Now that the updated Suzuki Carry has made its official debut in the ASEAN region, the question now arises, when will it come to the Philippines? The possible answer is yes but not any time soon as the current model made its launch in the country in the latter half of 2019.
