Suzuki Vitara User Reviews
|18/04/2017 16:29:46 Richard Owen " This car has the lot. It took me nearly two years to decide which new car to purchase and the Suzuki Vitara was the first car I looked at and test drove. Due to the then limited engine choice offered by Suzuki (1.6 normally aspirated diesel and petrol versions) I went on to look at many other cars. I had driven diesel engine cars for the last 22 years but had decided that my next car would have to be petrol (less annual mileage and probable diesel engine omissions tax). That excluded KIA Sportage and Toyota RAV4. I came very close to purchasing the Audi A3 and test drove the Audi A3 saloon and Sportback, but then the omissions controversy hit the headlines (the 1.4 TFSI was potentially also involved at the time) so Audi were off the list. The Audi reliability scoring was also not impressive. I ended up waiting for the SEAT Ateca to arrive, but when I compared the Ateca spec with the SUZUKI Vitara S (with the new 1.4 Boosterjet engine) it was a no brainer; the Vitara won hands down in every department. Just look at the standard kit with the Vitara that are all extras on the Ateca pushing the POR of the Ateca into silly figures and only 4WD on the diesel. I did test drive the Ateca, but really was not impressed - the Vitara is much more fun to drive, and, with a few extras - polished alloy wheels replacing the standard solid blacks, chrome trims to rear light cluster, and in metallic grey paint - it looks the business. I paid around £23k to get the Vitara of my choice on the road - worth every penny! "|

Space is adequate for a small car and the ride comfortable: on the firm side perhaps but this prevents excess roll in corners. Economy over 6000 miles is about 40 mpg which is not bad for the performance available. The level of equipment, including safety aids, betters anything at the price and there are more toys than any could wish for. The interior is neat and well assembled although some of the plastics are a bit hard. "|

Excellent fuel consumption of 46mpg over 12,000 miles including high speed trips to Southern France and Northern Scotland. All round great value for the price and decent build quality and reliability. "|
|04/10/2016 18:22:03 Alan Neades " The Vitara 1.4 Turbo is a small 4x4 with excellent space for its overall size, Ample room for four passengers and luggage. Performance in 'sport' setting borders on a warm hatch and it corners well without excessive roll and without compromising the ride. There is a six speed manual gearbox with this engine which reduces noise at higher speeds and the clutch has a light operation. Steering is light and accurate but not as self -centreing as many. Fuel economy in the real world is about 40 mpg. The interior is adequate but short of VW standards and the hatch closes with a bit of a clang. Standard equipment is good and includes radar collision avoidance and automatic braking. sensors all round and rear view camera, DAB radio and Sat nav. Suzuki make a virtue of its light weight but this does mean that, for example, the material for the interior of the wheel arches is somewhat thin. It is a shame that one has to buy the top of the range model to get this engine as the SZ-T trim level offers the best value but only comes with either the 1.8 non-turbo petrol or the 1.6 diesel. The good news (for some) is that the 1.4 Turbo is now available as an automatic. The Vitara is becoming more common on our roads but is still something of a hidden gem. "|
