3. Suzuki Vitara 2019 Highlights

New and improved Exterior 

Suzuki Vitara 2019 design is smaller, aggressive, but also very stylish. Not like most crossover models you often see today, this car has shrunk in size. But its visual impact on the road remains superior with the brilliant design given by Suzuki. Being small does not mean it can be overlooked. 

Compared with its previous-gen predecessor model, Suzuki Vitara 2019 features make it look more energetic, more aggressive.

The color range this Vitara 2019 line has is also a plus. You can take your pick from many exciting colors Suzuki provided, specially GLX with a two-tone color scheme.

The Engine

This will be the first time ever the 2019 version welcomes a 1L Boosterjet turbocharged petrol power plant. If there is something we learned from the facelifted S-Cross, then it is that this engine is good for 115 PS.

On the SZ-T and SZ4 trims, the 1L turbocharged unit is going to meet the standard. The SZ5 also has another standard 1.4L engine, whose capacity is 140 PS/220 Nm within 1,500 and 4,000 rpm.

Although the carmakers did not let any details on the transmissions of the Suzuki Vitara 2019 facelift slips, there is a high expectation for the S-Cross to come standard with a 5-speed manual for the 1L engine and 1.4L engine - a 6-speed, then preferably a 6-speed AT for both. The manual transmission of SZ-T will have AllGrip AWD available.

Excellent Safety Features​

One of the best upgrades in this 2019 version of Suzuki Vitara is the safety features. 

The safety features of Suzuki Vitara 2019 include Blind Spot Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, and Dual Sensor Brake Support and rear cross-traffic alert.

The GLX model has airbags. It has curtain airbags, dual-side airbags, and front airbags.
