Suzuki Vitara gets new engines as part of 2019 updates

Suzuki will launch a facelifted Vitara in September with a number of upgrades inlcuding WLTP calibrated emissions data.

It will be available with both 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbo charged petrol engines, replacing the current 1.6-litre petrol engine.

The Boosterjet engines provide more power and torque, greater efficiency and lower emissions. SZ4 and SZ-T grades are equipped with the 1.0-litre 111PS Boosterjet engine and four wheel drive is available optionally on the SZ-T with manual transmission.

SZ5 models are equipped with the 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine which offers a power output of 140PS.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures for both engines will be available closer to the launch date.

The latest Vitara will also offer various design updates and the availability of new technology and advanced safety equipment.

New alloy wheels plus a redesigned front grille and bumper is utilised and the rear of the car features new design LED  lamps.

Inside, the upper instrument panel incorporates a soft touch material and the instrument cluster has a new design with colour central information display.

New safety technology includes Dual Sensor Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, Traffic Sign recognition, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear cross traffic alert.

Pricing for the new model will be announced closer to the launch date.
