The Vitara is a large premium SUV with modern, upmarket styling and a generous range of safety and infotainment technologies. This versatile vehicle is comfortable around town and can also take on rough terrain, whilst delivering impressive fuel efficiency.
The Vitara’s bold road presence and sharply styled features ensure you will always turn heads. The front end has a wide chrome grille and swept-back halogen projector headlights with LED daytime running lights and front fog lamps as standard. The range-topping SZ5 upgrades these to automatic LED projector headlamps. Each trim level has alloy wheels and rugged SUV details including silver front and rear skid plates, wheel arch extensions and silver roof rails. You can also add Urban and Rugged styling packs which add even more striking design cues.
The Vitara is a spacious and family-friendly car with plenty of headroom for rear passengers and a 375-litre boot. You can fold the rear seats down to create a 1,120-litre boot space which is significantly more than in the Vitara’s rivals. Each trim level offers automatic air conditioning and various entertainment features, including DAB radio and Bluetooth® connectivity. Upgrade to the SZ-T model to add smartphone integration options and satellite navigation. The SZ5 model boasts a panoramic sunroof and suede seat upholstery for a luxurious journey experience.
Suzuki designed the Vitara with the aim of creating a practical car that has the same handling abilities as the Swift supermini. There are two engines on offer: a 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 1.6-litre diesel unit. The diesel unit is the most efficient option, returning up to 70.6mpg combined and emitting just 106g/km of CO2. You also have the choice of front-wheel drive or ALLGRIP four-wheel drive. When you choose the ALLGRIP system, the Vitara feels sure-footed and capable on slippery surfaces and steep terrain.
The Vitara is comprehensively equipped with safety features, including hill hold control and Electronic Stability Programme on all models. If you opt for the four-wheel drive model then your Vitara will also feature hill descent control to help you stay in command at all times.
