Interior / Exterior Comparison
The Mazda Scrum is also known as Autozam Scrum is a cabover minivan that shares the same design as the Suzuki Every. The Scrum is a commercial and passenger version that comes with a large interior space and exterior compact design. It offers a good balance in efficiency and utility. The front end is vertical and the front grille is more modern than the previous model. It also has a low ground clearance and all four wheels are pushed to the corner to make the car more stable at a high speed. The front bumper features a sliding rear door for easy access to the loading area and a circular multi-reflector fog light.
The interior gives a modern look with its wide glass area that gives good interior lightning though there’s not enough legroom. The dashboard offers a practical layout and clean instrument panel where you can fairly see it during the night and day driving. There are also lots of multiple storages where you can store small stuff.
The Suzuki Every is the passenger van version of Suzuki Carry that was released in 1982 and has already gained lots of reputation since then. It is popular and proven worthy when it comes to convenience in carrying various loads or passengers.

The R06A used VVT that provided in achieving both strength and low fuel consumption. It gives a smooth performance with thick low to medium torque even loaded with various cargo or carrying heavy loads. The Crum can give great fuel efficiency and excellent driving performance, with a mileage of 19 km/L for two-wheel drive, while the four-wheel-drive offers 19 km/L mileage paired with a five-speed auto gear shift transmission.
The first generation Suzuki Every offers only a four-stroke engine and in late 1987, it was changed to a 52 PS (38 kW) turbocharged engine. The Every Plus was the MPV version of the Every with seven seats with chassis code DA32W that fits a larger 1.3L G13BB SOHC inline-4 engine. It has a power of 78–86 PS (57–63 kW) at 5,700 to 6,000 rpm and torque of 101–115 Nm (74–85 lb-ft) at 3,000 rpm. The sixth-generation Suzuki Every is fitted with a 658cc RO6A three-cylinder engine that produces power of 64hp @ 6000 Rpm with 95nm @ 3000rpm of torque and a top speed of 120-140 km/h paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The Mazda Scrum and Suzuki Every both offer a good level of comfort when it comes to driving experience and performance. Both cars are reliable, efficient, and practical which can be used as commercial or family cars. It offers a good amount of space for the passenger or various cargo that needs to be transported. But if you want a practical and less expensive car it should be the Mazda whereas the Every offers a good variety of models where you can choose from and has more modern features than the Scrum.
