Suzuki Swift Price Increased

this news came as a blow to me to say the least, cos i was kinda banking on the fact that the price of Suzuki Swift will go down, instead of up. Thank God i followed my instinct and kinda listened to the advice of my stupid car salesman (ok, i do not call him stupid for no reason but tat's an entirely different story altogether).

Anyways, i got the news from Paul Tan's blog... here's the gist of the story he had posted: -

"Model Name:
  1. Suzuki Swift 1.5 (A)
    Old Price: RM81,779 New Price: RM87,279
    [That is about 7% increment]

  2. Suzuki Swift 1.5 (A) Premier
    OP: RM86,279 NP: RM91,779

  3. Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 (A)
    OP: RM139,888 NP: Remains

    The price of the Suzuki Swift 1.5 (A) baseline without leather seats and tinting has actually gone up by quite a bit, but don’t worry as manufacturing of CKD Suzuki Swift cars is expected to begin in 2007. Tax on CKD cars are not as high as CBU cars, so you will be able to enjoy a cheaper but locally assembled Suzuki Swift next year."

Locally assembled Suzie? (Suzie is Swift) WTF! i hope it is not too cheap. i believe these guys at Suzuki know the drift and will price it reasonably. anyways, it all ends well cos my car is worth much more now :P ... i was browsing at the various suzuki global sites and i found this site and the aussie site the cutest. apparently, my lil suzie won quite a lot of awards already in 2006 & 2006. quote Car Magazine (UK):

"The Swift is stylish, roomy and good value (good value if ur a BRIT!), pretty quick and a lot of fun to drive (agree!). It drives so well, it looks so good." Car Magazine, Suzuki Swift Winner 2005 Car of the Year. Issue 521, January 2006.

Cool, right?
