Suzuki Carry: Old vs. new

Suzuki Carry: Old vs. new

The Suzuki Carry has achieved a legendary status among drivers and business owners. Its reliability, versatility, and affordability have made it a go-to option for various industries. Its popularity can be attributed to its ability to navigate narrow streets without sacrificing cargo space.


  • What is the load capacity of the Suzuki Carry?

    The Suzuki Carry has a 940-kilogram load capacity.
  • How much is the Suzuki Carry?

    Pricing for the Suzuki Carry ranges from P614,000 to P798,000.
  • Over the years, the Suzuki Carry has undergone several generational changes to keep up with the evolving needs of Filipino drivers. It has become more reliable, technologically advanced, and stylish, cementing its place as one of the most sought-after commercial vehicles in the Philippines.

    Let’s take a look at the upgrades incorporated on the Carry and see how much better it is versus its predecessor.


    The old Suzuki Carry focuses on practicality rather than flashy aesthetics. Its boxy shape maximized interior space, allowing for easy loading and unloading. Despite its utilitarian appearance, it appealed to those who appreciated simplicity and functionality.

    On the other hand, the new Carry sports a fresh and modern exterior design compared to its older counterpart. With sleek lines, wider headlights, and a more pronounced grille, it exudes a contemporary look.

    It has an overall length of 4,195 millimeters (mm), an overall width of 1,765 mm, and an overall height of 1,910 mm, making it 395-mm longer, 203-mm wider, and 27-mm taller than its predecessor.


    Inside the cabin, the old Carry offers ergonomics and comfort, with the seats designed to provide excellent support. However, this old model does not have any kind of ventilation inside the cabin.

    Thankfully, Suzuki equipped the new Carry with an air-conditioning system. The new model also comes with a 1-DIN Pioneer head unit with AM/FM radio and two speakers that produces better audio quality than its predecessor's built-in radio speakers.

    Other modern conveniences include the sliding glass windows and a 12-volt interior accessory socket.


    The older version of the Suzuki Carry was equipped with a two-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that only delivered 31 horsepower (hp) and 75 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque.

    Meanwhile, the new Carry is powered by an upgraded 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that churns out up to 95 hp and 135 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

    Cargo space and load capacity

    While the old Suzuki Carry sported a compact frame, it did not compromise on cargo space. The load capacity of the old Carry varied depending on the model, but it remained impressive for its size and allowed entrepreneurs to transport a significant amount of products.

    The new Carry, on the other hand, has a 940-kilogram load capacity which is large enough to move heavy cargo.

    Its bed also has a low height and three-side access for easier loading and unloading. It also comes with rope hooks in case you would like to secure your cargo with a rope.


    The upgrades from the old and new Suzuki Carry models showcase the evolution and progress of this popular commercial vehicle. While the old model holds its charm and legacy as a reliable workhorse, the new Carry takes the vehicle to new heights with its advanced features and improved performance.

    Pricing for the Suzuki Carry ranges from P614,000 to P798,000.
