Suzuki is set to introduce the next generation of its Vitara compact SUV in October 2020. The 5th generation Vitara will see a lot of improvements in terms of design, features, performance and equipment on offer.
According to reports, the next-gen Suzuki Vitara will be bigger than the existing model, which measures 4,175 mm in length, 1,775 mm in width and 1,610 mm in height. The new one is expected to be 4,200 mm long, 1,780 mm wide and 1,620 mm tall. It might retain the 2,500 mm wheelbase while the platform it will sit on, will likely be a revised version of that of its predecessor’s.
The interior is also likely to receive a major upgrade with more space, better convenience, connectivity and safety features whereas the powertrain options will include naturally aspirated 1.6L as well as turbocharged 1.4L assisted by Suzuki’s 48V mild-hybrid system.
The current generation Vitara made its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show while Suzuki introduced the facelift at the 2018 Paris Motor Show commemorating its 30th anniversary since the Vitara was first introduced back in 1988. The next generation Suzuki Vitara is expected to go on sale towards the second quarter of 2021.
