Our Suzuki Vitara Review

Our Suzuki Vitara Review
The Suzuki Vitara is affordable, practical, and easy to live with. Though this doesn’t sound exhilarating, the Suzuki Vitara is anything but dull. Although this vehicle first went on sale in 2015, it has recently undergone an upgrade: a new engine, improved styling, and cost adjustments. It has always distinguished itself from the competition due to its price, but now that it offers a lot more, it is a large competitor in the SUV market.

Thinking of leasing a Suzuki Vitara?

So is the competition? The Ford Puma, Renault Captur, Seat Arona, Skoda Kamiq, and Volkswagen T-Cross are some of its rivals, some of which offer mild hybrid power. The very efficient Toyota Yaris Cross competes head-to-head with the standard hybrid Vitara. But where does the Vitara sit amongst the competition? Let’s find out together.

Suzuki Vitara Drive

The Suzuki Vitara's 1.4-litre petrol engine, which generates 127 horsepower and incorporates mild hybrid technology to provide just a little bit more performance without losing fuel efficiency, is our engine of choice. You won't even realise the extra help, but that doesn't mean everything will move slowly. For a compact SUV, the Vitara is rather nimble, with plenty of speed to reach motorway speeds or overtake slower-moving traffic on a country road. It takes less time to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (9.5 seconds) than the identical Ford Puma and Volkswagen T-Cross vehicles.

When driving on a winding road, the Vitara handles curves reasonably well, but the steering, which is very light when you first turn the wheel and provides little sense of connection to the front wheels, is a letdown. It works better for city driving, making it easier for you to manoeuvre into parking spaces and through congested roundabouts.

Suzuki Vitara Interior

The Suzuki Vitara's interior is designed to be both functional and comfortable, with high-quality materials and modern technology. The latest model features a spacious cabin that can comfortably seat up to five passengers. It also offers a range of convenient features, such as a touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, and a rearview camera. The front seats are supportive and adjustable, and the rear seats can be folded down to expand the cargo area.

Suzuki Vitara Space

There is plenty of room in the Suzuki Vitara for passengers. Up to five passengers can sit in the cabin comfortably, and there is enough head and legroom for everyone. To increase the space and add more storage for supplies such as luggage, groceries, or outdoor equipment, the rear seats can be folded down. The Suzuki Vitara has a 375-litre maximum cargo capacity, which can be increased to 1,120 litres by folding the back seats.

MWVCs Conclusion

There are more upscale small SUVs available, but the Suzuki Vitara is one of the roomiest and offers excellent value. Even the entry-level model is equipped with a tonne of features, and its mild hybrid technology helps to reduce operating expenses. However, competitors with similar prices are more enjoyable to drive and have a more upscale interior.
