In November 2006, Suzuki reintroduced the Cervo name. The modern, Alto-based Cervo is still a kei car but is much more luxurious than its predecessor. The Cervo originally came equipped with the 658 cc K6Aengine (54 hp in the normally aspirated VVT G version, 60 hp in the turbo T and TX version). It is only available as a five-door with a four-speed automatic (with a manual mode in the turbo cars), and is marketed as a more masculine alternative to the MR Wagon. The nicer grade Cervos came with keyless entry and Bluetooth. In June 2007 a G Limited normally aspirated model was added, with the fourteen-inch alloys and rear spoiler of the TX.
In October 2007, the Cervo received the Good Design Award, and the SR version was introduced. This had a new, 64 hp direct injection turbo engine and a seven-step CVT transmission, the first time for such a combination to be available. With front-wheel drive, this car achieved a remarkable 23.0 km/l (54 mpg) on the test cycle. The Cervo also received some minor updates across the line, with new liquid seal engine mounts and suspension changes. In May 2008 the range received more minor updates, with new colors being added and a new limited edition model, the G Limited II, which featured alcantara interior and a sporty exterior. Other models received new aero parts and other equipment, gas discharge headlights were now available on the SR.
Suzuki Cervo SR
In May 2009, the Cervo received its most recent upgrade. The T model was discontinued, the TX received the "aero" front dam of the SR while the gas mileage of the G version was improved to meet the 15% gas mileage improvement goals for Japanese fiscal year 2010. The very efficient SR is the only turbocharged Kei car to qualify for the lower tax grades for especially environmentally friendly vehicles, combining this with being the most powerful version. The Cervo was discontinued by Suzuki during March 2010.
