Following on from the recent announcement of the 30th Anniversary of the Vitara, Suzuki is set to launch its 2019 model in September, which the company says, incorporates numerous visual, technical and specification upgrades.
The Vitara will be available with both 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre booster jet turbo charged petrol engines as introduced in the S-Cross model range late last year and these will replace the 1.6-litre petrol engine. The highly acclaimed booster jet engines provide more power and torque, greater efficiency and offer lower emissions, Suzuki tells us.
The SZ4 and SZ-T grades are equipped with the 1.0-litre 111PS booster jet engine and all grip four wheel drive is available optionally on the SZ-T with manual transmission.
Suzuki’s SZ5 models are equipped with the 1.4-litre booster jet engine which offers a power output of 140PS and 220Nm of torque is available from just 1,500rpm through to 4,000rpm. WLTP fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures for both engines will be available closer to the launch date.
The latest Vitara will also offer various design updates, two new colours and the availability of new technology and advanced safety equipment.
For the exterior, new design alloy wheels are available, a redesigned front grille and lower bumper is utilised and the rear of the car features new design and distinctive LED combination lamps. For the interior, the upper instrument panel now incorporates a soft touch material for added quality and the instrument cluster has a new design with colour central information display.
Suzuki says the 2019 Vitara will be the most technically advanced Suzuki to date and new safety technology available as standard equipment on the SZ5 model will include dual sensor brake support, lane departure warning and prevention, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
Pricing for the new model will be announced closer to the launch date.
