The Suzuki APV, or All-Purpose Vehicle, has been soldiering on since 2005 in the Philippines. It is a versatile vehicle that Suzuki markets as a do-all, be-all machine that seats up to 8 passengers, with options that range from a family van to a bare-bones business tool.

After almost 15 years in service and with a tempting value proposition, is the Suzuki APV still the right car for you?

Suzuki APV on the Road

The Suzuki APV is a practical ride that doesn't take up a lot of space on the road

Gazing upon the Suzuki APV, you might have flashbacks of sandwiches being prepared in the morning, and I won't blame you. The exterior resembles a loaf of bread, and there is no denying that, considering that Suzuki intended the APV to be as utilitarian and practical as possible.

It’s like they took a shell, filled it with seats, pushed the wheels as far back into the corners as possible, and named it the APV.

I remember a conversation I had with friends and some guys from an online forum; they said that they were willing to buy one of those JDM Kei vans, miniature vehicles with small-displacement engines.

I find it funny that we’ve had it here in the Philippines this whole time! Truth be told, if you manage your expectations of the APV, it’s not actually half bad. You get a practical van that doesn’t take up a whole lot of space.

The look of the Suzuki APV has largely been unchanged since it was first introduced, although there was a minor facelift done in the middle of its life cycle.

The previous model featured thin, slanted headlamps that flank the equally slim grill; after the facelift, the headlamps grew larger and had a more rounded shape to them, while the now-larger grille had the addition of chrome bits.

Large wheel arches frame the standard 15-inch alloy wheels for the GLX model create a sense that the car is larger than it really is, adding a bit of style in the process. Car buyers on the lookout for gray market vehicles such as the Scion xB or the Nissan Cube can actually consider this vehicle if quirky style points are your game.

2019 Suzuki APV Interior Space

Visibility is superb thanks to the large windows surrounding the APV

The Suzuki APV 2019 interior space is a revelation. It has second and third-row seats that can comfortably seat three passengers each. The GLX trim comes with six speakers, two on each row to entertain the occupants. Visibility is excellent, thanks to the large windows complementing the APV’s commanding ride height.

The beige upholstery lends a sense of airiness to the cabin, especially when light bounces off the seats. Backup cameras and rear sensors are available, but you’ll hardly need them on the APV.

One of the more recent additions from Suzuki is an 8-inch infotainment screen with built-in navigation and Bluetooth connectivity that lets you pair your smartphone for hands-free communications and multimedia streaming.

Meanwhile, the entry-level GA trim sports a similar seat layout, minus the power windows and touchscreen infotainment well as making do with a two-speaker setup. Thankfully, safety features such as dual airbags and ABS come standard.

The reliable 1.6L SOHC G16A again makes an appearance under the APV’s hood, although it is getting a bit long in the tooth, having previously powered the 90s-era Vitara and Esteem wagon. Making 91 hp and 127 Nm of torque, the engine isn’t exactly earth-shaking, but it’s not going to leave you wanting, either.

Suzuki probably decided that a five-speed manual would do a better job in maximizing the output, which is why the four-speed slushbox is no longer available.

Driving it around, the APV is just about as predictable as a small van gets. The compact proportions demonstrate Suzuki’s mastery of miniaturization, with their prior experience in coming up with models from the Celerio to the Jimny.

However, dynamics are bland and the steering feels vague at best, in part due to an overboosted power steering mated to its already short wheelbase.

The upside is that it makes the van easy to park, and if you let go of your speed demon aspirations, the Suzuki Swift is quite a capable vehicle. The combination of a high center of gravity and light steering make the APV a bit challenging for me to take on highway runs, but it might not be so noticeable with a full load of passengers or cargo.

The Suzuki APV is the perfect example of prioritizing your needs over wants, a small, practical vehicle that seats 8 people in comfort with an adequate and fuel-efficient engine. The proportions of the APV, a strange combination of short and tall, making it quite at home in a market filled with quirkily-designed vehicles.

Suzuki has added an 8-inch infotainment screen with built-in Bluetooth and navigation

Truth be told, I found the Suzuki APV way ahead of its time, which thankfully has been kind somehow to this machine; 14 years after its introduction to the market, it’s no longer looks like the odd one out, and consumers can enjoy one of the most capable and interesting MPVs out there.

As always, the best way to determine which of the Suzuki APV 1.6 GA or GLX is the right vehicle for you, is through a test drive.
