Suzuki Vitara

(2015 - present)

The Suzuki Vitara is a small SUV/crossover model and the best-selling car in the Suzuki range. The current model is the fourth generation Vitara, which went on sale in 2015 and was given a substantial facelift in late 2018.

The Vitara has received average to good reviews from the UK motoring media, with our overall Expert Rating currently placing it in the top half of the small SUV/crossover field. It has received particular praise for its practicality, versatility and value for money, but has been criticised for the low quality of its interior fittings compared to rivals.
