The Suzuki Vitara is one of the largest vehicles in the Suzuki line-up. Practical, functional and fun in equal measures, the family-friendly SUV navigates city streets just as easily as it handles longer drives on the open road.
Every trim level of the Suzuki Vitara benefits from the brand’s hybrid technology, too. The result is an efficient SUV that delivers all the functionality and reliability associated with the Suzuki name.
If you’re looking for your next Suzuki car, here is everything you need to know about the Suzuki Vitara.
In 2022, the Suzuki Vitara became available as a full hybrid car for the first time ever. If you choose this option, you’ll enjoy a 1.5-litre engine and automatic transmission alongside the high voltage 140V lithium ion battery. If you decide to opt for the 6-speed manual transmission, the Vitara is available as a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine that comes with Suzuki’s mild hybrid technology.
The Suzuki Vitara, while on the more compact side of the spectrum when compared to other vehicles in its class, holds its own against other SUVs on the market and makes sure it stands out for all the right reasons. From the front, the Suzuki Vitara boasts some sleek, sporty touches such as angular headlights and chrome trims. From the side, its pronounced lines continue to pay homage to the first generation of the popular model. On the inside, the Suzuki Vitara feels airy and spacious, especially on the SZ5 trim, which comes with a panoramic sunroof.
The spaciousness of the Suzuki Vitara provides a comfortable ride for both the driver and passengers. The interior remains quiet, even on the motorways and busier roads. Drivers of the Suzuki Vitara also benefit from height adjustment, so you can choose a driving position that makes you feel the most comfortable and confident.
Despite its large SUV size, the Suzuki Vitara promises a surprisingly nimble driving experience. It doesn’t struggle to make even the tightest of corners and keeps a firm grip on the road at all times. It’s so agile that, apart from the height, you may forget that you’re not driving a sporty hatchback car. The all-wheel drive option, which is available on both the mild hybrid and full hybrid engines, adds even more fun and possibility to what is already a pleasurable driving experience.
Prioritising practicality over unnecessary luxuries and frills, the Suzuki Vitara 7-inch infotainment system is incredibly easy to use. Its logical layout and mobile connectivity options, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ensure you’ll always have everything at your fingertips.
Safety technologies include a rearview camera as standard on all trim levels, traffic sign recognition, emergency brake support, lane departure warning and prevention, and adaptive cruise control. All trim levels except for the SZ-T also come equipped with keyless entry technology to make busy shopping trips and school runs more stress-free.
