The Vitara’s SUV lifestyle is created through a distinctive,  modern design that sports an athletic SUV look, along with customary SUV  passenger room and large 375 litres of cargo space.  However, for amazing city convenience,  Vitara’s finely tuned suspension provides car-like ride and handling, with outstanding  fuel economy from just 5.8L/100klms.

“Vitara has better fuel economy than Australia’s two best-selling  small hatches and loads more style and space, so I am confident we will have a  significant number of customers cross-over from the small car segment” said  Moore.

Vitara has inherited Suzuki’s rich 4×4 heritage, along  with Suzuki’s enhanced ALLGRIP 4WD system.   “Unlike other small SUVs, Vitara has the 4×4 credentials and ground  clearance, so you can take it on far more adventurous tracks”

“With  Dealer fit personalization accessories, customers can tailor their Vitara to  their own unique personality, something totally new and exciting at this end of  the market” states Moore.
