With an array of vehicles designed to meet the needs of consumers' active lifestyles, American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) arrives at the 2006 Orange County Auto Show with its full line of exciting cars and SUVs, including the all-new XL7 midsize crossover SUV and bold and functional SX4 compact X-over (crossover).
In addition to Suzuki's full-line of vehicles on display at the show, Southern California auto enthusiasts will be treated to a look at the Suzuki "Hip Hop" Grand Vitara, a concept vehicle designed in conjunction with SiTV, an English-language Latino cable network, to reflect the hip hop music "Way of Life."
"American Suzuki rolls into the Orange County Auto Show poised for an impressive 2007 campaign," said Koichi Suzuki, president of ASMC Automotive Operations. "We are coming off a record-setting year led by the popular Grand Vitara and top-selling Forenza family of vehicles, and we're set to continue the momentum into the next model year with the XL7 and SX4."
The XL7 and SX4 add to the momentum of an extraordinary time in Suzuki's history with last year's launch of the completely redesigned Grand Vitara and record sales for the first nine months of 2006. Year-to-date sales of Suzuki cars and SUVs in the United States through September 2006 are up 28 percent over the same period last year.
Suzuki's diverse vehicle line offers something for everyone with standout virtues for toughness, leading-edge style and high-end features at prices well below the competition. All 2007 Suzuki automobiles are backed by America's #1 Warranty: 100,000-mile/seven-year, fully transferable, zero-deductible powertrain limited warranty.
