Grand Vitara and Forenza family lead Suzuki to best April in company history and second consecutive month with sales above 10,000 units

BREA, Calif. -- (May 2, 2006) -- American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) today announced sales of 10,669 units in April – an increase of 32 percent over April 2005 and the best April sales in company history. April is the second consecutive month in which Suzuki reported sales above 10,000 units. Year-to-date sales, which total 37,308 are up 38 percent. Suzuki’s monthly and quarterly records continue its recent sales momentum which included record sales of 82,101 in 2005 – the best sales year in American Suzuki’s 21-year history.
ASMC’s growth was led by the sales of its Grand Vitara, which sold 2,741 units, an impressive 493 percent increase over last year’s numbers. The top-selling Forenza family of vehicles also contributed to Suzuki’s record month, with 4,938 units sold in April – an 18 percent increase over 2005.

“Suzuki’s record-setting April, following the outstanding first quarter result, illustrates the company’s positive sales momentum and puts us on-track to sustain our growth during 2006,” said Koichi Suzuki, president of American Suzuki’s Automotive Operations. “The increasing popularity of the 2006 Grand Vitara, the continuing sales strength of the Forenza models and the excitement surrounding the two new vehicles (all-new 2007 XL7 and all-new 2007 SX4) we introduced last month at the New York International Auto Show position American Suzuki for a successful campaign this year.”

Suzuki’s expanding product line in the United States includes the media-acclaimed 2006 Grand Vitara, the popular Forenza sedan and Forenza Wagon, the five-door Reno, the Aerio and Aerio SX, the Verona and the Suzuki XL-7, one of the most affordable seven-passenger SUVs sold in the United States.
