The new Suzuki Vitara has been tested by Euro NCAP and has been awarded the maximum five-stars. The new Vitara went on sale in April priced from £13,999 for the entry level SZ4 1.6-litre petrol model with two wheel drive (all wheel drive is available).
The Vitara’s NCAP result can be broken down into, adult occupant 89%, child occupant 85%, pedestrian 76% and safety assist 75%. This compares to the new Fiat 500x that scored four-stars - adult occupant 86%, child occupant 85%, pedestrian 74% and safety assist 64%.
To gain a full five stars the car must score adult occupant 80%+, child occupant 75%+, pedestrian 65%+ and safety assist 70%+.
Standard safety equipment on Suzuki Vitara includes seven airbags with a driver’s knee airbag as well as seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters.Published 11 May 2015
