Review

There are more upmarket small SUVs, but the Suzuki Vitara is one of the most spacious and is great value for money. Even the entry-level model gets plenty of kit, and its mild-hybrid technology helps to keep running costs down. However, similarly priced rivals are better to drive and feel more upmarket inside.

Trim: SZ4

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: 1.4 Boosterjet 48V Hybrid

This 1.4-litre petrol engine uses mild-hybrid technology. Its power delivery is strong and smooth with plenty of performance to get you up to motorway speeds, or to swiftly whip past a slow-moving tractor on a country lane. On paper, it makes the Vitara faster than the equivalent mild-hybrid version of the Ford Puma, and the similarly powered petrol engine in the Volkswagen T-Cross.
