Suzuki dealers in the UK will no longer offer customers the cheapest brand models at the end of this month. Saying goodbye to the “state employees”, the brand will rely on its best sellers.

The most affordable models of Suzuki in the British car market – compact city cars Celerio and Baleno – will cease to be sold at the end of August. It is reported by the portal GLAS. Ru with reference to the British media, which managed to get a comment from a representative of the brand. The Japanese brand is going to reform its model line in such a way as to most successfully promote its most popular cars in the UK. Among them are the Ignis microcrossover, the S-Cross crossover, the Vitara SUV, as well as the Super Swift.

Buyers must endure breaking up with Suzuki budget employees steadily, since they did not cause much excitement among fans of the Japanese brand. So, last year the brand sold about 15 thousand copies of Balenos and 21 thousand units of Celerios in European markets.

 This is much lower than the indicators of the same Swift and Ignis. The first came to Europe in the amount of 55,000 cars, and the second – 43,000.

Meanwhile, a new line has lined up for the new Suzuki XL6. Since the start of accepting applications, brand dealers managed to collect more than 13,000 prepaid orders.
