New Delhi: Ahead of the market launch of the 2019 Vitara facelift, Suzuki Motor Corporation has officially the SUV, which is slated to be introduced in September this year in the UK.
2019 Suzuki Vitara facelift comes with a host of cosmetic, technical and feature updates for the model year 2019. The SUV is available in two new colour options along with new tech and advanced safety features. The prices have not been announced yet.
The facelifted Suzuki Vitara SUV measures 4.2 metres in length. The grille is redesigned and features fat, vertically positioned chrome slats and revised front bumper with a larger airdam and slightly bigger LED daytime running lamps.
The cabin now features improved quality material for the interior trim. Soft-touch material has been used in the dashboard for the upper instrument panel, while the instrument cluster gets a new design with colour central information display.
The top-end variant will be offered with features like dual sensor brake support, lane departure warning and prevention, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
The SUV gets its power from both, the 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbocharged petrol engines, borrowed from the updated UK-spec S-Cross model range. The engine is capable of churning out 138 bhp and 220 Nm of peak torque, which is available from just 1,500 rpm through to 4,000 rpm.
The lower variants will have the 109 bhp, 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine under the hood and will also pack Suzuki's ALLGRIP four-wheel-drive system as an option with the manual transmission version.
