Following its record of selling around 2,000 units nationwide for four straight months, Suzuki Philippines, Inc. (SPI), is opening a new dealership by next year in Tagum City, Davao. To further fast track sales across the country, the Japanese subcompact carmaker will complete Suzuki Auto Tagum by March 2020 and will be fully operational by May 2020. Located in District 1, Purok 5A, Canocotan, Tagum City Suzuki Auto will soon make Suzuki cars and services more accessible to existing and other potential customers in the area and neighboring cities. Owned and managed by Grand Canyon Multi Holdings Inc., the latest dealership adds to its 12 other Suzuki dealerships around the archipelago.

The said milestones continue to motivate the brand to look for more opportunities to strengthen its market in the country by providing best-in-class vehicles and service to Filipinos and bring to them the 'Suzuki Way of Life.'
