“Obviously, the new Suzuki Dzire is designed and built with a wider market in mind, particularly with the intent to compete against better established brands in this semi-luxury category. We can see the Suzuki Dzire encroaching new customer segments which have been exclusive domains of some rival brands for many years. Our after sales service back up, affordable and readily available spares inventory and the personal care of the team at AMW means the model, like all the rest of the Suzuki range will get the attention and support it deserves ensuring a bright future for the model and the brand,” he stated assuredly.
