There are more upmarket small SUVs, but the Suzuki Vitara is one of the most spacious and is great value for money. Stick with the entry-level 1.0-litre petrol engine and SZ4 trim for the best bang for your buck.get the best price
Available on the 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine only, entry-level SZ4 gets you 16in alloys, cruise control, climate control, a CD player, a USB port and Bluetooth. It's our favourite trim.
Engine: 1.0 Boosterjet
The 1.0-litre engine is our top 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 in some rivals with small turbocharged engines.
