BREA, Calif. – (July 3, 2007) – American Suzuki Motor Corporation today announced sales of 10,325 automobiles in June, an increase of nine percent over the same month last year and the highest June sales volume in company history. Year-to-date sales for 2007 now stand at 57,488 vehicles, one percent ahead of mid-year 2006. For all of 2006, Suzuki sold 100,990 vehicles – the first time in its 22-year history the automaker enjoyed automobile sales of more than 100,000.

Suzuki Auto’s record June sales volume was led by the sales growth of its all-new midsize crossover SUV, the Suzuki XL7, which sold 2,076 units, an impressive 121 percent increase over last year’s sales of the outgoing model. Sales of the Suzuki SX4 compact crossover also helped drive the company’s strong June results, which are poised to continue well into the summer driving season and beyond. The next chapter in its growth story was revealed earlier this spring, when Suzuki unveiled the next addition to its expanding product line, the all-new 2008 Suzuki SX4 sedan. That vehicle goes on sale in Suzuki dealerships nationwide this fall.
“Suzuki’s record-setting first-half sales performance, coupled with the eagerly anticipated arrival of the Suzuki SX4 sedan later this year, puts us on track to sustain our growth throughout 2007,” said Mark Harano, president of American Suzuki’s Automotive Operations. “Although auto industry sales have been tempered this year by many factors, including the rising cost of fuel, Suzuki has been able to weather the storm with its lineup of affordable and value-packed vehicles."

American Suzuki’s product line includes the all-new Suzuki XL7 midsize crossover SUV, the all-wheel drive Suzuki SX4 compact sport crossover, the media-acclaimed Suzuki Grand Vitara, the popular Suzuki Forenza sedan and Suzuki Forenza Wagon, the five-door Suzuki Reno and the Suzuki Aerio sedan.

In addition to this strong vehicle offering, Suzuki features America’s #1 Warranty with an industry-leading 100,000-mile/seven-year, zero deductible, fully-transferable powertrain limited warranty.
