Since 1959, Suzuki came into the Philippine motoring scene through the able management of Rufino D. Antonio and Associates Inc. wherein they handled nationwide distribution of Suzuki motorcycles.
Since then, Suzuki Philippines Inc. has been at the forefront of introducing motorcycle models which enjoyed market acceptability. The steady shift of the motorcycle market from mostly tricycle models to solo-ride models like privately or company owned mopeds.scooter, and trail bikes has prompted Suzuki to continuously come out with new models to cater to this market.
In October 1999, SPH also marked another milestone event in its history when it took over the automobile operations of Suzuki in the country from Pilipinas Transport Industries, Inc. (PTII). The expansion greatly strengthened the company image and capability in carrying its four-wheel division.
In July 2000, Suzuki Automobile launched its flagship model the Grand Vitara with its all-new 2.5 liter v6 engine, building on the rich heritage of the Vitara model in the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) market. Automobile enthusiasts can only look forward to upcoming new models,
which will be launched locally after successful introduction of these models in the international market. –www.suzuki.com.ph
