There are more upmarket small SUVs, but the Suzuki Vitara is still one of the most spacious and is pleasantly capable. Both engines are more than competent for around-town driving, while the 1.4-litre unit adds that extra bit of oomph for taking on motorway miles if required. What’s particularly appealing about the Vitara is that the range starts at an incredibly competitive price point, although moving through the trim levels can start to add up. If you’re looking for a more rounded small SUV package, the Seat Arona is generally worth the extra cash, but the Vitara shouldn’t be overlooked if you’re on a budget, so be sure to check it out before you buy.

Trim:

SZ5

SZ5 models, available with only the 1.4-litre engine, get lots of upmarket upgrades, including adaptive cruise control, panoramic sunroof, 17in alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors. It also gets the raft of safety kit, including automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blindspot monitoring and cross traffic alert.

The 1.0-litre engine is our recommendation, and is a worthy contender to other turbocharged rivals, such as the 1.0 TSI in the Seat Arona. It’s more than capable, with power arriving promptly when you put your foot down – not the case with some other small turbo units.
