Following the first-ever online launch of its latest dealership in Marikina City, Suzuki Philippines Incorporated (SPH) is extending its support to the city’s local government unit by lending out three units of its Super Carry model.
The vehicles were turned over in a ceremony attended by Marikina City Councilor Loreto “Coach Elvis” Tolentino Jr., Suzuki Auto Marikina Branch Head Edmundo Gutierrez Jr., and Suzuki ANC Group General Manager Francis Tayo.
Spanning Utility Van (UV), Pickup, and Filcab variants, the units will be placed under the temporary custody of the Marikina City government. These will be used for various purposes in delivering services to the city’s constituents, from logistical support through the delivery of goods to mobility options for the community.

The Suzuki Super Carry is SPH’s compact workhorse, featuring a Euro 4-compliant 0.8 DDiS inline-4 diesel power plant with turbocharging and an intercooler. This all-aluminum engine sports dual overhead camshafts with 8 valves and the relatively small displacement return exceptional fuel economy while still churning out 75 Nm of torque. Completing the powertrain is a 5-speed manual transmission directing power to the rear wheels.
A spartan interior underscores the Super Carry’s utilitarian role, with a single analog speedometer integrating a digital odometer lying just beyond the three-spoke urethane steering wheel.
There’s ample legroom for cab occupants, with the driver’s seat easily adjustable in a total of seven slide positions. Various binds provide storage options for small items, and a 12-volt accessory socket provides electrical power.

Each Super Carry is backed by more than four decades of Suzuki’s expertise in manufacturing trucks that can operate even in the harshest environments, which will benefit not just Marikina City but Suzuki customers as well.
