Double award for Suzuki Swace at Scottish Car of The Year
Suzuki is pleased to announce that it has won two category awards for Swace at the Scottish Car of The Year ceremony held in Edinburgh by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers.
Swace was voted as Best Family Car of The Year as well as Best Hybrid Car of The Year following an intensive test program over the last 12 months with the 10 members of the Association recently assembling to cast their votes for the best new cars on the market.
For the Family Car Award, Alisdair Suttie, President of the Association said ‘The Suzuki Swace left the ASMW judges wondering if there was anything this fantastic estate couldn't do as a family car. It's roomy, has a large boot, plenty of safety tech, and it's great to drive. The Swace is also economical, well built, and fits in with family life perfectly to make it a superb winner in this category.’
For the Best Hybrid Car Award, Alisdair Suttie continued ‘Hybrid cars have a huge amount to offer many drivers and the Suzuki Swace is a shining example of this. Its petrol-electric power works seamlessly together to deliver a fine drive and excellent economy. Just what drivers are looking for in these cost-conscious times.’
Dale Wyatt, Director of Automobile at Suzuki GB PLC comments: “We have 14 dealers in the Scottish Region and these awards are really positive news for us. The Swace is our first Estate Car which opens up further opportunities to win new buyers in the popular Hybrid segment.
We promise our customers Hybrid as Standard and we’re thrilled to win an award that emphasises our commitment to Hybrid and offering all the technology you need.’’
