While you might think that Suzuki's air conditioning system is just to keep you cool on balmy Summer days, it also performs a vital function in keeping you safe by demisting the windscreen in Winter, allowing for greater visibility while driving. It is recommended that you change the cabin filter every 2 years to keep your air conditioning working efficiently.

Using Air Conditioning 

From cooling you down in the height of Summer to keeping you warm on those icy Winter mornings, your vehicle's air conditioning system is an important part of your driving experience. For optimum performance, replace your air conditioning filter every 2 years.

Maintaining your aircon

​From keeping you cool on those balmy Summer's days to warming you up on icy Winter mornings, your aircon system is an important part of having a pleasant and comfortable driving experience. Keep your aircon working at peak efficiency by following Suzuki's tips for maintaining your air conditioning.

How to cruise control

Cruise control is an incredibly useful feature, especially when you are undertaking long journeys. Ideal for use when traveling on motorways, cruise control allows you to fix your speed at a set level, helping you to conserve fuel by avoiding unnecessary braking and acceleration. Suzuki's adaptive cruise control technology also allows you to automatically match the speed of the car in front of you while maintaining a safe distance to help to avoid collisions. Pressing the brake pedal at any time will cancel cruise control.

Suzuki Blind Spot Monitor

It doesn't matter how careful a driver you are, you can't react to something which you can't see. This is why we have developed the Suzuki Blind Spot Monitor System. By utilising an array of radars surrounding your vehicle, the Suzuki Blind Spot Monitor System will alert you with both visual and audio warnings when there is another vehicle or object in your blind spot when driving, keeping you safe when changing lanes or reversing in a busy car park.

Connecting your smart phone

Suzuki's infotainment system allows you to make and receive calls on the go, connecting to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to pair your phone with the system and use the console panel or the buttons on the steering wheel to navigate your contacts list to make calls and answer or reject incoming calls. You can even use voice control if your smartphone supports it.

How to find your vehicles VIN number

​It is a legal requirement that every car has a Vehicle Identification Number or VIN. Made up of 17 letters and numbers, this is your car's unique identifier, linking it to it's service record, car history and recall information. Following our guide, it is easy to find- make a note of it as it may come in useful!

How to play music in your car

Connecting your devices to your car's sound system through Bluetooth, USB or auxiliary input couldn't be easier. Controlling your in-car music is just as simple, you can use the buttons on the console or the buttons on the steering wheel to fast-forward, rewind and adjust the volume. You can also control the graphic equaliser to get just the right amount of bass and treble, all your favourite songs being played just the way you like them.

How to fold your rear seats

Whether you are moving furniture or packed too much for your family holiday, the ability to fold down your back seats to increase the boot space available is incredibly useful. Follow our detailed video to learn how to quickly and easily fold down your Suzuki's rear seats.

Caring for your car

No matter how carefully you drive, if you don't take care of your car then you're a potential hazard. Shockingly, half of UK drivers ignore it if their car is making unusual noises. One in ten drive around with worn tyres. And only three in 10 get their car checked for Winter, so maybe it's no surprise that thousands of drivers were in a crash caused by snow and ice last year. Come to your local Suzuki Service Centre and we will make sure your vehicle is in safe working order.​
