The Suzuki APV is a minivan/light commercial vehicle designed by Suzuki in Japan and assembled in Indonesia by Suzuki Indomobil Motor (a subsidiary of Suzuki). It is powered by a 1.5-liter or 1.6-liter inline-four engine delivering 92 hp. The abbreviation "APV" is short for All Purpose Vehicle.

In November 2007, Suzuki released the improved APV named APV Arena (APV Type II in some countries). It offers more luxurious features with the Luxury/SGX trim as the flagship variant (captain seat version). Not just doing some facelift in exterior but the interior is also changed as well and an improvement in engine performance.

The APVs are exported to countries like Algeria, Bolivia, Brunei, Chile, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Jamaica, Malaysia, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, Sudan, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Middle East. Up until 2018, it was also exported to Australia.

The pickup truck version, called Suzuki Mega Carry in Indonesia, Super Carry Pro in Vietnam and APV Pickup elsewhere, was launched in 2011, six years after Suzuki Indomobil Motor started exported to more than 80 countries in the world from 2005. The Mega Carry was discontinued in 2019 in favor of the international version of the eleventh generation Carry.[citation needed]
