The Suzuki Vitara was launched in 2015 and has been a huge success for the Japanese manufacturer ever since. A popular SUV in the UK, the brand is now making sure the Vitara stays up to date and maintains its reputation over the coming years by giving it a facelift in time for 2019.
Although it’s named the “2019 Suzuki Vitara” it launched earlier than anticipated and you can come and view the new version at Hilton Suzuki today! Here’s everything you need to know about the new 2019 Suzuki Vitara.
What to expect from the 2019 Suzuki Vitara.
The Vitara’s 1.6-litre petrol engine is being replaced in 2019. In its place, Suzuki is taking a feature from its other popular models with a range of 1-litre cylinder and 1.4-litre Boosterjet engines.
The 1-litre engine is borrowed from the Suzuki Swift and will be available on the entry-level SZ4 and mid-range SZ-T models. The latter is shared by the latest Suzuki Swift Sport and will be available in the top-spec SZ5 model.
Both of the new engines boast lower carbon emissions and better fuel efficiency than the outgoing Suzuki Vitara engine. This will be welcomed by drivers looking to reduce their environmental footprint and save money on petrol.
At first glance, the 2019 Suzuki Vitara looks a lot like its predecessor. Look a little closer, however, and you’ll spot the subtle designs upgrades that will give the small SUV a refresh for the new year.
The Suzuki Vitara facelight includes new headlights and LED tail lights, a redesigned front grille and a new lower section to the front bumper. More noticeable changes include the new alloy wheel designs and the two new paint colours available.
The updates to the interior of the Suzuki Vitara are even subtler than the exterior changes. The dashboard has had the greatest facelift, with new softer, higher quality materials and a redesigned instrument cluster which now benefits from a TFT colour screen display between the dials.
As you might expect, the Suzuki Vitara’s on-board technology has had an upgrade for 2019 too. The brand has promised that the new 2019 Vitara will feature the most technologically advanced Suzuki car to date, adding extra safety and comfort to every drive.
The 2019 Vitara will also be the safest version of the popular Suzuki car to date, with many new features added. The Vitara will now include a whole host of safety features such as Traffic Sign Recognition, Dual Sensor Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Departure Warning and Prevention as standard.
