Suzuki New Zealand

Globally recognised, long time local

Suzuki is one of the world’s most successful automotive brands, enjoying a reputation as an innovative leader in compact car, motorcycle, marine and 4WD technology. The Suzuki brand symbolises outstanding quality and value for its millions of customers throughout the world.

In 1984, the Suzuki Motor Corporation purchased the assets of South Pacific Suzuki Distributors, owned by the Coleman family of Wanganui, to form Suzuki New Zealand Limited. In addition to importing Suzuki cars and motorcycles, the Company operated a vehicle assembly plant until 1988, when changes within the New Zealand market led to the end of local assembly.

Two top-class dealer networks operate across the country, one for cars and one for motorcycles. Suzuki’s customers can expect a high level of service and care from a small group of franchised owners who value being part of the Suzuki family.

Suzuki now offers a wide range of small cars and SUVs, including New Zealand’s most popular small car, the Suzuki Swift, to the class-leading Vitara range. It is one of New Zealand’s top selling motorcycle brands, with an extensive range of motorcycles from 50cc scooters, to powerful classic cruisers and competition-winning superbikes like the GSX-R1000.

Suzuki branded ATVs are recognised for their ruggedness and reliability, and their ability to handle the demanding conditions of New Zealand’s high-country farms. In fact it was right here on a New Zealand farm that the Coleman family and Suzuki created the first ever 4-wheel ATV.

Visit Wanganui

Tēnā koutou katoa! Welcome to Whanganui!

Whanganui (sometimes spelt Wanganui) is a place steeped in history, art and culture. Big enough to draw crowds and small enough to be intimate.

We are surrounded by mountains, Mount Taranaki, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Tongariro, a beautiful natural landscape, dramatic west coast beaches and unspoilt native bush for tramping and wilderness trips. Our vibrant community prides itself on its parks and reserves, cycle and walk ways and an abundance of creativity. Don’t be surprised to find an immediate sense of connection, an unexpected little slice of heaven, and real New Zealand authenticity. Enjoy our manaakitanga – our legendary hospitality. We look forward to welcoming you to our part of the world. Come and learn more.
Kō au te Āwa, kō te Āwa kō au. I am the river, the river is me.
