For a common hard-working Filipino, balancing work, family, and leisure is a tedious task. That’s why Suzuki Philippines made an effort to ease things up with their most versatile model, the APV. Given its boxy dimensions, the Suzuki APV does boast in terms of generous interior space. It’s an all-purpose vehicle by design, thus its name, and it can seat up to 8 people with extra room for luggage or bulk numbers of merchandise for business. It can also be of great use as a family van.
Powering the Suzuki APV is a 1.6-liter SOHC 16-valve engine that has a 5-speed manual transmission. With its vast cabin space and functionality, tried and tested durability, and power figures reaching 91 hp and 127 Nm of torque, the APV certainly is more than capable of surviving the daily grind to arrive home, freshen up a bit, and be on the road all over again to celebrate life with loved ones.
The first model of the Suzuki APV was launched in 2004, with a facelift following in 2007. The nameplate is still being sold today, over a decade later.
Platform, Chassis and Powertrain
When it comes to the chassis, the Suzuki APV shares its bones with the Suzuki Super Carry, which makes this vehicle a capable hauler for people or cargo. Dimensions of the vehicle come in at a length of 4,320 mm, a width of 1,865 mm, a wheelbase of 2,625 mm, which rides on a total of 180 mm of ground clearance. The suspension system features a MacPherson strut in the front, while the rear has a rigid axle with leaf springs for base variants and a 3-point coil spring setup. A pair of disc brakes are found in the front, while the rear features a set of drum brakes. Lower trims roll on a set of 14-inch steel wheels while the top-of-the-line trim comes with a 15-inch alloy set.
All models will come with Suzuki's G16A gasoline engine. The motor is a 4-cylinder SOHC that produces 91 hp and 127 Nm of torque. The sole transmission on offer from Suzuki Philippines is a 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine is located under the driver's seat and sends power to the rear wheels.

Technology features in the Suzuki APV include a 6-speaker audio system with an 8-inch head unit capable of connectivity options such as AUX, USB, and Bluetooth. Lower models will have a 1-DIN system that has AUX and USB connectivity that outputs to only 2 speakers. To aid in parking, all models come with rear parking sensors.
The APV features an exterior that is similar to that of commercial vehicles. Its nose is much shorter, and the engine sits further back allowing for the driver to have an unobstructed view of the road ahead. The headlights are halogen reflectors, which allow for standard performance in terms of lighting arrays. The side features utilitarian lines, which all help the cabin keep its spacious character. The roofline is quite high, and the length is also quite long considering its price point and segment. The simple styling can also be found in the rear, where the halogen taillamps are simple in shape.
Colors for the APV include Superior White, Silky Silver Metallic, Graphite Gray Pearl Metallic, Prime Cool Black, Pearl Radiant Red, and Pearl Burgundy Red.
A total of 8 seats can be found in the interior of the APV. Seating configuration is set in a 2-3-3 arrangement. The interior can come in a beige color that adds brightness to the cabin. The vehicle's seats can be folded to maximize the 714 L of cargo space. The interior dashboard is made up of durable plastic, and the seats are covered in cloth.
Safety systems for the APV include the dual front airbags. Seatbelts are present for all occupants, with the two middle passengers receiving lap belts, while the rest of the occupants have 3-point harnesses. Side-impact door beams are also present in the high-end variant and other items in the safety systems of the APV include an antilock brake system.
