Personalisation

From the initial development stage, Vitara was designed with personalisation in mind. Diverse exterior colours and a range of design details enable owners to specify their Vitara to their individual tastes.  Customers can choose from 10 body colour possibilities that include two new colours as well as five two tone combinations. The two new colours are Atlantis Turquoise Pearl Metallic and Horizon Orange Metallic.

Several other items are available to further personalise Vitara interior and exterior trim detailing. These are:

  • Instrument panel trim (turquoise, orange, white, or piano black)
  • Ventilation louvre rings (turquoise, orange, white, or piano black)
  • Centrally located clock (CARBON or KANJI)

Available as a £500 option, owners can also further emphasise their new Vitara's on or off-road credentials by choosing from two packages:

  • Urban package adds sophistication and consists of fog lamp bezels (chrome-plated), body-side mouldings, and a roof spoiler.
  • Rugged package emphasises SUV toughness. It consists of front and rear skid plates, fog lamp bezels, body-side mouldings, and loading edge protection.

Engines

The new Vitara is powered by the M16A 1.6-litre petrol engine or the D16AA 1.6-litre DDiS  engine. With the petrol option, friction reductions combined with weight savings in the engine and related components help achieve excellent fuel economy together with high output and torque. For the diesel engine, a new EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system and an electronically controlled VGT (Variable Geometry Turbocharger) help achieve powerful, torquey performance together with low emissions and Euro 6. Respective engine output and torque figures are as follows:

 

M16A

D16AA

Maximum output

120PS /6,000rpm

120PS /3,750rpm

Maximum torque

156Nm/4,400rpm

320Nm/1,750rpm

CO2 emissions

The new Vitara's CO2 emissions are low thanks to the use of high tensile steel and other weight saving measures in the body plus an Engine Auto Stop Start system which shuts down the engine when stationary.  The CO2 emissions for the petrol engine with two wheel drive / manual transmission are 123g/km and 127g/km for the petrol engine with two-wheel drive / six-speed automatic transmission.

Four-wheel drive is typically seen as detrimental to fuel economy and emissions performance. By contrast, Suzuki's ALLGRIP system enables CO2 emissions that are remarkably low for a four-wheel drive SUV with figures of 130g/km with five-speed manual transmission and 131g/km with six-speed automatic transmission.

The new Vitara also has outstandingly low CO2 emissions with the DDiS engine, emitting just 106g/km with two-wheel drive / six-speed manual transmission and 111g/km with four-wheel drive / six-speed manual transmission.

 

Safety

  • Comprehensive list of active and passive safety equipment
  • Radar Brake Support system available on SZ5 models.
  • Light, impact absorbing body; speed limiter; ESP® * (Electronic Stability Programme), and tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control for more relaxed driving available on SZ5 models.
