Fantastic Suzuki Fronx: Two Awards at the COTY Awards 2024

Suzuki steps up to the plate, claiming two awards at the South Africa Car of the Year Awards with the Fronx. It was awarded first place in the Best Budget and Compact Vehicle category. All category finalists were tested extensively in the evaluation phase at the Zwartkops Raceway. The winner was chosen based on the results from these tests and the data from Lighthouse Auto that took the market share, sales volume, value for money and public perception of each car into account. The Fronx went the extra mile and placed second in the overall ranking for the Awards, losing only to the BMW 7-Series. “The jury of the SA Guild of Mobility Journalists chose the Fronx after a thorough vehicle testing process, which means that their choice truly reflects the best in automotive excellence in its segment." - Brendon Carpenter (Brand Marketing Manager of Suzuki Auto SA) With these awards, Suzuki boasts a recent award for effectively every passenger vehicle in its range.
