Earlier this year, Suzuki announced that they will be retaining their 2017 pricing for cars until stocks last. As a follow up to that story, the company has released a new set of pricing for select models, which now includes the excise tax in their suggested retail prices.
But before we take a look at the models with price bumps, it's worth noting that most of their offerings still have their 2017 SRPs. Suzuki adds that they will keep posting these prices until their stocks last.
All Alto, Celerio, Ciaz, Ertiga, and Swift variants have their respective prices untouched from the previous update Suzuki announced. Two APV variants, namely the entry-level GA and utility-oriented UV, are unaffected by the excise tax. Three body styles of the Super Carry (pickup, cargo, Jeepney) retain their pricing from last year. All the models mentioned will stay at the old list prices, at least for now until Suzuki Philippines has to bring in a new batch of cars.
With that in mind, expect another announcement from Suzuki Philippines with the new prices of the cars mentioned in the near future. Also, the company has quietly announced the introduction of the Vitara GL M/T, serving as the new entry-level variant for the said small crossover.
As for the models with price increases, these are the all-new Vitara, both Jimny variants, the top-spec APV and the Super Carry UV. The range-topping Vitara GLX, along with the mid-spec GL+, both see their SRPs go up by Php 50,000. Meanwhile, the top of the line APV, the GLX M/T, gets an increase of Php 30,000. As for the Jimny, the JLX M/T and Jimny JLX A/T get a price bump of Php 20,000. Lastly, the Super Carry UV body gets the smallest price increase at Php 15,000.
