The Changhe CoolCar, also known as the Suzuki Every Landy or Changhe Landy, is a Mini MPV produced by the Chinese automobile manufacturer Changhe alongside the Japanese multinational corporation Suzuki, and marketed from 1999-2013. The car was revived in 2018 as a Guatemalan-built version of the Changhe Beidouxing.


Under license, Changhe bought the Suzuki Every Join Turbo design and modified the exterior, and the final result was presented by Suzuki and Changhe. The car was manufactured over 3 generations, all of which were sold in China and Japan by Changhe and Suzuki.

The CoolCar was discontinued in 2013, but was revived 5 years later, in 2018, being based on the Changhe Beidouxing, and again badged as a Changhe-Suzuki product.

First Generation (1999-2005)[edit]

Also calledSuzuki Wagon R

The Changhe CoolCar was originally developed as, essentially a badge-engineered 1998 Suzuki Wagon R. [1] Like the Wagon R, it was powered by an I3 engine. These engine options included 657 cc F6A SOHC I3, 657 cc F6A SOHC turbo I3, 658 cc K6A DOHC I3 and 658 cc K6A DOHC turbo I3.

The better equipped CoolCar-A variant was added in early 2003 and manufactured in China until the end of its production in 2005. The car featured a wider body and the K10A naturally aspirated engine with 996 cc and four-cylinders. The same CoolCar-A was also available with a 1.2-litre K12A engine.

For the 2007 model year, the CoolCar became a Mini MPV that was bigger with a design almost like a fridge. This design allowed for more cargo space. This model was officially sold in Japan, China, and Hong Kong, and also sold through parallel imports in Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei, alongside the Nissan Serena.

This model was also badged by Suzuki as the Suzuki Every Landy. a practice that is continued with practically all generations of the CoolCar.

The second generation was discontinued in Japan and China in 2013 and in Hong Kong that same year.

Changhe-Suzuki Landy[edit]

A common practice throughout all generations, the Changhe CoolCar was also sold as the Changhe-Suzuki Landy. In Japan, the CoolCar has been manufactured by Changhe under the Suzuki label. The Landy version was in production until 2012 and only available with the 160 PS (118 kW) 2.5-liter QR25DE engine joined to a 4-speed automatic.

Martin Motors CoolCar[edit]

In order to gain a foothold in other areas, Martin Motors' 2009 model initiative began with the MM520 series one, a vehicle in the compact class. As a manufacturer of microcars, the company also built the Changhe Ideal 1000 under license. Furthermore, Martin Motors brought the Changhe CoolCar and the self-developed Pickup Cab Freedom in order to test the commercial vehicle waters. The end result was the badge-engineeed product was a minivan called the “Martin Motors CoolCar”. The Martin Motors CoolCar was in production until 2015, when the company filed for bankruptcy.
