If you're after the 'biggest' kei car on the market, then you've found home
The Suzuki Every uses a mid-engine / rear-wheel drive layout to create the most spacious Kei car money can buy
The 2016 Suzuki Every can trace its roots back to the original Suzuki Carry Van.
You know, the one you vaguely remember from 1980s Australia. And like the old one, this new Suzuki Every is still a proper passenger Kei car that’s built upon a commercial vehicle platform.
That means it’s hard to kill and very robust; but also comes with the fringe benefit of a mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout.
It’s what sets the Suzuki Every apart from the rest. The mid-engine design enables a huge cabin; but also enables its wheels to be placed ideally where they ought to be – at its farthest corners.
It’s a packaging marvel, and in term of outright space and manoeuvrability, nothing really comes close. It features an incredible turning circle of 4.5-metres and makes inner-city driving super easy.
Compared to a Suzuki Spacia – with its more typical front-engine layout – the Suzuki Every is a larger vehicle. Where the Suzuki Spacia skews more toward passenger comfort, the Suzuki Every is more focussed more on outright occupant space and cargo capacity.
The back seat has ISOFIX mounting points for child seats and also slides to create more room for taller adults. Huge openings – like 1,165mm wide by 1,340mm high for its rear boot aperture – mean it’s easy to pack, rack or stack stuff inside, too.
The car pictured – 2016 Suzuki Every Wagon PZ Turbo
Our Suzuki Every Wagon was built in October 2016 and is a ‘PZ Turbo’ trim level with a standard roof.
That means it features a mid-mounted and turbocharged 660cc three-cylinder ‘R06A’ engine with 47kW/97Nm, a traditional four-speed automatic and is rear-wheel drive.
As a ‘PZ Turbo’ model, this 2016 Suzuki Every features Autonomous Emergency Braking (city – low speed), auto LED headlights, keyless entry and start, an electric sliding door plus Apple CarPlay / Android Auto.
An Australian-sourced and seven-inch Nakamichi infotainment system has been installed which features Apple CarPlay + Android Auto smartphone integration, Bluetooth and localised radio / language settings.
This van was a one-owner vehicle and comes with a good service history, original owner’s manual, Japanese de-registration certificate (mileage proof) and two genuine Suzuki keys.
The vehicle has undergone a minor service (air filter + oil filter + brake fluid) and features brand-new Hankook tyres on its original 14-inch wheels.
