Suzuki goes from strength to strength with new Vitara at BW Garages

FIRST introduced in 2015, the Suzuki Vitara has earned high acclaim for its stylish, city oriented design, compact and easy to manage dimensions, good on-road performance and genuine offroad capability.

For 2019, the Vitara receives various styling upgrades, new engines and an even higher level of technology and safety features. The Vitara expresses Suzuki’s SUV styling heritage in a strong looking design. The clamshell bonnet (a hallmark of Vitara models) gives the front end a look of solidity, and a trapezoid front bumper indicates a powerful grip on the ground. The 2019 model incorporates a new, more elegant front face with redesigned grille and lower bumper and the rear lamps have now been redesigned with a distinctive LED display. For the interior, a new seat trim design is utilised for the range and suede seat fabric is fitted on SZ5 models; the upper instrument panel is upgraded to a soft touch material and the instrument cluster now features a central colour information display.

A full standard equipment table for the Vitara range is listed at the end of this press pack and also on the media website. Standard equipment for all Vitara models is comprehensive and the SZ4 model includes seven airbags, alloy wheels, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control with speed limiter, auto air conditioning and front and rear electric windows.

SZ-T adds new design 17-inch silver painted alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, white stitching for seat trim fabric, Smartphone link audio and navigation system.

Moving up to SZ5 adds LED Projector headlights, 17-inch polished alloy wheels, suede seat fabric, keyless entry with start button, Traffic Sign Recognition (also fitted on ALLGRIP models), blind spot monitor, Adaptive Cruise Control, Dual Sensor Brake Support and Panoramic sunroof.

The 2019 model is available in two new dual-tone colours which are Solar Yellow Pearl and Ice Greyish Blue. A total of 11 different shades are available in the Vitara range of which one is a solid colour, four are metallic finish and six are dual-tone metallic finish with Cosmic black roof colour. After the debut of the 1.0-litre three cylinder Boosterjet in Baleno, S-Cross and Swift, this engine technology is now extended to the Vitara. Offering the same level of power and torque of a much larger capacity normally aspirated engine (1.7-1.8-litre), it delivers an effortless drive and genuine driving pleasure. Now available for SZ-T and SZ5 grades, the outgoing Vitara S model launched in 2016 was the first Suzuki to utilise the Boosterjet technology petrol engine.
