New Suzuki Swift 2013 Launch @ Setia Gemilang Auto

So there I was at the rather new Suzuki Setia Gemilang Auto showroom located in Sungai Buloh for their grand launch in conjunction with the all-new Suzuki Swift 2013 car. Being a car enthusiast wannabe lately, I was rather excited when invited to check out this launch.

Reaching the new 4S Suzuki Showroom at 11am plus, it was nice to see the new Suzuki Swift cars already lined up in the showroom for us to admire, touch and feel. We even got the chance to test drive the new Suzuki Swift 2013 that day. Anyway first up, I would like to emphasize on the size and how complete this Suzuki showroom is, so we shall go through that first.

The Suzuki 4S Setia Gemilang Auto showroom happened to be the largest Suzuki 4S Premier Centre in Malaysia. Why 4S? It actually stands for sales, service, spare parts, body and paint, hence making it some sort of a one-stop solution centre under one roof to cater for all your Suzuki automobile needs. Don't take my word for it, check out some of the photos I managed to capture of the centre itself.

We were brought on a short walk-around the area to understand better on the Suzuki service centre. With a large see-through glass in front of the waiting lounge, I could appreciate the fact we get to see our cars being repaired and serviced in front of our eyes. At the service bay, we have repair and even tinting services being offered on top of the normal scheduled maintenance service. Insurance claim& windscreen can be done here.

After a short spin in the new Suzuki Swift 2013, I can safely say it's a pretty nice car to drive in, with ample power for that starting acceleration needed.
