February – Coupé GXF, four-seater 2+2 added. "F" signifies four seats.
March – 34 PS less equipped 2+2 Coupé GXPF added.
June – 31 PS Coupé GAF version introduced (¥399,000). The GAF has painted bumpers and no spotlights in front, as well as chromed hubcaps rather than the sportier wheels of the better equipped models. Inside the center console was deleted, as were several gauges, and a more pedestrian two-spoke steering wheel replaced the original sportier looking three-spoked unit.
Top of the line Coupé GXCF also appears, equipped with front disc brakes, and a radial tire equipped GER.
October – Two-seater Coupé versions discontinued.
In March the Fronte Van received the two-cylinder, two-stroke water-cooled 28 hp L50 engine also used in the Suzuki Carry, becoming the LS20. A new grille gave away the changes underneath the skin, as did prominent "Water Cooled" badges on the rear. Aside from the engine, the most important change was that the rear lid was now once again a top-hinged single-piece unit. As before, Standard, DeLuxe, and Super DeLuxe versions were available.
In March water-cooled Fronte 72 GD-W (deLuxe) and GU-W (standard) were added. In export markets, there was the Suzuki Fronte 500 with the 475 cc LC50 engine, also marketed as the Suzuki LC50 (29 PS, 115 km/h).
In October the Fronte 72 was replaced by the "New Fronte" (with a new fascia and bonnet). By this time, only the Standard model ("U") retained the air-cooled engine, with an available automatic clutch. The top-of-the-line "GT-W Type II" came equipped with front disc brakes, as does its sister model the Fronte Coupé GXCF.
The LJ was updated in May and renamed the LJ20. The grille bars are changed from horizontal to vertical for the LJ20. The engine is replaced with an updated, water-cooled unit (the L50), and its 28 PS enables the LJ to reach 80 km/h (50 mph).
