2021 Suzuki Swift新改款在泰国上市:1.2L DualJet搭CVT,油耗低至23km/L

在泰国市售了近3年之后,泰国Suzuki汽车日前又在当地推出了新的2021 Suzuki Swift改款车型。与之前一样,这辆车将在泰国本地组装(CKD)生产。首先,Suzuki削减了泰国Swift车系中的1.2 GA和1.2 GLX Navi车型,现在该车系下只有两个车型可选,分别为GL和GLX。先说GL车型,这款新的入门规格车型追加了无车匙进入系统、一键启动功能、自动冷气和电动侧后视镜。这些新追加的功能将GL车型的价格提升到了THB 557,000,相比之前上涨了THB 21,000。而GLX车型则换装了新的16英寸合金轮圈和新的内装色调,并搭载了一块支持Apple CarPlay和Android Auto功能的8英寸多媒体荧幕。同时,GLX在这次升级中还追加了一个新的倒车摄像镜头。不过,虽然追加了新配备,但GLX的售价却没有上涨,依旧为THB 629,000。虽然新款Swift的标价要比像Toyota Yaris 1.2车型(标价THB 549,000到THB 679,000)这些竞争对手略高一点,但它还是要比Honda City Hatchback 1.0 Turbo(标价TH

Evolution of the Proton Persona in 27 years – Will it ever match the City and Vios?

Back in 1993, the most preferred body-type for a car was a saloon. The Proton Persona debuted, and back then, we knew it as the Proton Wira. The Wira was known as the Persona in UK. Alongside the Wira, the Satria was called the Persona Compact, and the Putra was the Persona Coupe.For 2 generations, the Persona was a C-segment saloon. Things were revamped in 2016, and the Persona name was redesignated to an Iriz-based B-segment sedan.A lot has changed over 27 years, but the Persona remains an aff
