Suzuki has strengthened its motor vehicle presence in south Auckland with the appointment of a new dealership.
Southern Autos Manukau has joined the Suzuki network which now increases to 33 nationwide outlets in the wake of rising sales. It is the first time the franchise has had representation in the expanding south Auckland region.
Commencing operations with Suzuki from early January 2018, Southern Autos Manukau has a purpose-built facility and is well located on the corner of Great South Road and Bakersfield Place, just off the Southern Motorway and opposite Westfield Manukau City.
A subsidiary of highly respected Colonial Motor Company which has a motor industry heritage dating back to 1908, Southern Autos opened in 2014, and also has the Isuzu, Peugeot and Citroen brands.
“This is a perfect fit for us, and Suzuki compliments the other products we sell,” said Southern Autos dealer principal Andrew Craw. “Suzuki is a strong brand with a very good reputation, and has been topping surveys and winning awards with its products.”
“Buyers in south Auckland are particularly conscious of pricing and reliability, so securing Suzuki provides us a great range of new SUVs and compact cars that offer excellent value for money. We will complement this with a range of quality used Suzuki models to allow us to cover all options for Suzuki customers,” said Mr Craw.
The dealership has the full range of Suzuki facilities including sales, finance, insurance, parts, and service all on site.
Gary Collins, General Manager of Automobile Marketing for Suzuki New Zealand, said, “We see the expansion of Suzuki representation to the south Auckland region as significant for our overall growth in Auckland.”
“We’re delighted to form a partnership with such a reputable and experienced dealer group,” he said. Southern Autos Manukau are in a prime location and have a great team that we are confident will provide a high level of service to our current and new Suzuki customers in south Auckland.”
Suzuki is one of the fastest growing new car franchises in New Zealand with a strong range of compact, highly efficient models that are well suited to the local market. Its lineup includes the award-winning Swift which is the most popular car for private buyers, the unique new Ignis hatchback and popular Vitara SUV.
