Suzuki Philippines continues its Dealer Expansion Program (DEP) in the country. The Japanese automotive manufacturer is inviting more investors across the country into its dealership business. DEP aims to expand the Suzuki brand in the Philippines to better reach more customers as well as serve existing owners better. The Japanese automaker has recently been on a roll as it recently added new models to its lineup. Suzuki just launched the new Carry and a new variant of the Dzire. With the new addition, the Japanese automaker aims to give the public better light commercial vehicle options as well as a new entry-level sedan to choose from.
The Japanese automaker already has 21 dealerships nationwide with 12 of them being in Luzon, three in Visayas, and six in Mindanao.
Earlier during the first half of this year, Suzuki was able to experience a 14 percent sales growth over the same period last year. This report was according to the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI).

The Japanese automaker’s growth was partly in thanks to the sales of the Ertiga, Swift, Celerio, Dzire, and Vitara. These vehicles contributed to 77 percent of the total H1 sales of 2019.
