The first-generation Suzuki Vitara made its début back in 1988 when Suzuki’s vision of an all-wheel drive turned into reality with the launch of an authentically compact SUV with rugged lines and enhanced driving dynamics. More than twenty five years later, the Suzuki Vitara’s heritage is embodied in a fresh sport utility vehicle incarnation. The all new Vitara features smaller dimensions that meet contemporary needs. It incorporates Suzuki’s cutting-edge AllGrip technology, comfortable on-road performance and genuine off-road capability to fully show off its changes in body size and powertrain.
RETURN OF THE LEGEND
STYLE IT YOUR WAY
The new Vitara expresses Suzuki’s SUV styling heritage in a strong, muscular design. Its essence is revealed through the clamshell bonnet, front bumper as well as the
flared and modernised fender garnish, to give the front end a look of solidity. With an extensive range of accessories, interior trims to mix and match, and two-tone exterior colours to choose from, ‘you are what you drive’ takes on a whole new meaning in the Vitara. Make your selections and enjoy all the attention from your new admirers.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU DRIVE
The spacious interior redefines compact SUV comfort and driving intelligence, with a high level of luxurious finishes throughout the cabin. The dash design will increase your pulse the moment you step inside the spacious yet cosy interior that surrounds you.
The interior features a variety of amenities to make your Vitara driving experience more comfortable and enjoyable. It’s time to find that map and plan the route of all the places you’ve been meaning to visit.
With an MP3/WMA compatible CD player and Bluetooth / Hands-free connectivity, there are simply no barriers to your Vitara’s on-road enjoyment.
A PANORAMIC VIEW UNDER THE BLUE SKY
The panoramic sunroof* consists of two overlapping glass panels which can both slide, so they don’t affect the cabin or carrier space as the driver and passengers enjoy the fresh air, coupled with some warm kisses from the sun.
SPACE FOR ALL THE LITTLE EXTRAS
With 375 litres of luggage space, 60:40 split folding rear seat capability and a movable luggage board, the Vitara was designed to accommodate the various activities of your life – plus the people in it.

INTUITIVE. INSTINCTIVE. RESPONSIVE.
The Vitara’s advanced safety equipment is designed to anticipate and help avoid imminent danger in case of a collision.
SEVEN AIRBAGS FOR SEVEN TIMES THE PROTECTION
The impressive safety features are made up of dual front, side and curtain airbags and a knee airbag for the driver. The safety-packed Vitara achieved a 5-star EuroNCAP rating. Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Brake Assist System (BAS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP) come standard on all models, giving you total confidence behind the wheel.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL*
When the vehicle is travelling down a steep downward slope and engine braking is not sufficient to slow it down, the Vitara’s Hill Descent Control system engages (in active AllGrip LOCK mode). The traction control light informs that brakes are slowing down the car, letting the driver concentrate on steering operations.
*AllGrip model only
From the initial development stage, Vitara was designed with personalisation in mind. Its legacy lives on as a fresh sport utility vehicle; shrunken to meet contemporary needs with a striking on-road presence, distinctive exterior and sharp, sporty looks. All this and more, makes the stylish new Vitara a thrilling SUV that gives you the itch to start it up and drive, and drive, and drive.
AERODYNAMIC YET POWERFUL PERFORMANCE
The engine transmission, and other individual components like the AllGrip system, enhance and complement each other for perfectly synchronised, powerful and sporty performance. The AllGrip 4WD system enables you to reach places your adventurous spirit wants you to go.
The 4WD system, AllGrip, has four driver-selectable modes – Auto, Sport, Mud/Snow and Lock – designed to maximise road grip while decreasing running costs. At a turn of the dial, the AllGrip system allows the driver to rediscover what the Vitara was created for: all-out-adventure!.
Auto Mode: This mode normally keeps the vehicle in 2WD, but when tyre slippage is detected, it automatically switches to 4WD, providing reassurance in cases of sudden changes in weather like unexpected showers.
Sport Mode: Changes accelerator and torque characteristics for better engine response. It also delays ESP® intervention, respecting the driver’s intentions for sporty driving.
Mud/Snow Mode: Provides optimal configurations on slippery surfaces, such as ice, snow and mud. This mode anticipates slippage before it occurs and allocates torque to the rear wheels, ensuring outstanding grip.
Lock Mode*: This mode constantly distributes high torque to the rear
wheels to generate maximum traction. Braking is applied to slipping wheels
and ample torque to the gripping wheels is provided.
*Lock mode automatically switches to Mud/Snow mode at speeds over 60km/h
This powerful and responsive engine produces confident driving on busy city roads as well as winding lanes. The reduced friction and weight in the engine ensure exceptional fuel economy.
