2012 Suzuki Splash


The new Splash adds yet another great little hatchback to Suzuki’s portfolio of city cars.

The new model comes with new front and rear bumper styling, new bonnet and grille design, new design seat fabric and graphite colour scheme, Piano Black finish to centre console and Black cloth finish to the front door armrests. The changes in bumper designs have resulted in an overall increase in length of 60mm, taking Splash to a still very compact 3,775mm. That is in addition to two new engines the car be had with, the 68 PS VVT 1.0-litre (Variable Valve Timing) three cylinder unit and latest Dual VVT (inlet and exhaust camshaft) 94 PS 1.2-litre petrol engine that was first used in the all-new Swift.

And as for the price, Suzuki keeps surprising with the price of their new model. The Splash starts at just £7,777. This car is all about value for money, and not much else!

More details in Suzuki press release:

Launched this week, Suzuki is pleased to announce the 2012 model Splash Mini-MPV, incorporating styling refreshments to both exterior and interior that brings Splash right up to date for the second half of 2012 and beyond. Most importantly there are no increases in pricing and Suzuki’s very popular VAT free offers have now been extended across the Splash range with the 1.0-litre SZ2 available from just £7,777.

Splash is compact enough to manoeuvre with ease through narrow streets or to slot into tight parking spots. Yet on the inside its elevated driving position means it can comfortably seat five adults with plenty of legroom and luggage space, at the same time providing a great view of the road. The high seating position makes for easy entry and exit, while folding the one-touch rear seats forward – split 60:40 – creates a virtually flat load floor and opens up 573 litres of luggage space (VDA), including a handy waterproof compartment beneath the boot floor.

Both engines are tuned and engineered with an emphasis on everyday driveability and cost-effective motoring with combined fuel consumptions of 60.1mpg for the 1.0-litre and 55.4mpg for the 1.2-litre (automatic 49.6mpg). The 1.0-litre emits just 109g/km of CO2 meaning it qualifies for £20 annual road tax, free in the first year. Manual transmission 1.2 litre models with emissions of 118g/km cost just £10 more in annual VED, again free in the first year.

Five models make up the Splash range. The 1.0-litre is available in SZ2 and SZ3 trim; the 1.2 model is available in either SZ3 or SZ4 grades, with optional automatic transmission available on the SZ4.

All Splash models offer a comprehensive equipment list as standard including four airbags, CD tuner with MP3 player and steering wheel-mounted audio controls; leather-trimmed steering wheel; remote central locking; front electric windows with driver’s auto-down; electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors; height-adjustable front seats; tilt adjustable steering wheel and an information display. 1.0-litre SZ3 models upwards add air conditioning as standard.
