nakita ko na sya in person. medyo mataas talaga sya. what impressed me though is that although the engine is under the driver seat, the air intake is mounted just under the hood -- around 2 feet aboe the ground -- so medyo kampante ka pag mataas ung baha B). the salesperson also mentioned something about it being distributorless...i could only guess that he was referring to the spark plug/ignition system, so iwas ding magstall dahil nabasa ang distributor mo.
third row seats were narrow, pero relatively comfortable; dalawa kaming umupo sa likod, no claustrophobic feelings naman, and it would seem na kasya pa ng isang similarly-sized person sa likod(we're around 5"8', 170-180lbs). i wouldn't stick my parents in the rear seat, pero ok lang if it were my siblings, pag long trips.
isa lang ung aircon nya, so it remains to be seen if the aircon can keep the suckers at the third row seats cool and comfy at high noon B)
mukhang ok naman sya for that kind of money; i just have two negative quips, which are based on personal hypothesis/guessing:
1. ) matangkad talaga sya. i have this irrational fear of it tipping over at high speed turns, but if you're making high speed turns with a van/people carrier vehicle, then you probably deserve tipping over B)
2.) the 1.6L gas might not cut it if you take it to baguio/tagaytay at full load. ano kaya no, if pilhino did a road test with a full load of passengers, aircon at full blast, and it still made it to baguio? grabe sigurong image boost for the APV!
i'd love to see them put a turbo intercooled diesel on this baby, kahit 1.6L lang tantsa ko ayos na(forgot to ask the suzuki guy why they don't bring the diesels here)
