The global brand also introduced its new Suzuki Eco Performance technology fused with its signature fuel-injection system aptly called the SEP Fi that is made to achieve the best of both worlds – maximum power and optimum fuel efficiency.

During the presentation, exciting promotional items that come with every purchase of the new products were also showcased such as the colorful Address Hoodie fitted for the owners of the new Suzuki Address and the highly functional TODA Jersey for those who will buy the very reliable Suzuki AX4.
On top of these, the brand also introduced various marketing tools that will aid the salespeople at the selling floor though brochures, flyers and a pocket-size Quick Reference Guide (QRG) that summarizes all the features of each of Suzuki’s Triple Threat models. Being known for its very futuristic approach on display modules, Suzuki also surprised their partner dealers with the new Address Crescent Module that will certainly catch attention on the display area.
