The modelRead full Suzuki Vitara 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.
The trimSee full equipment
Upgrading to the Vitara SZ5 doesn’t add too much to the price tag but does add the sliding panoramic roof that limits head room. On top of that, you also get 17in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, suede interior trim, electronically folding wing mirrors and built-in sat-nav.
The engineSee full engine specs
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.
