What's It Like to Live With

The Suzuki Vitara has a footprint of 4175mm long x 1775mm wide x 1610mm tall. This compares to its rival the Nissan Qashqai at 4377mm x 1806mm x 1590mm. Interior space is good as is the head and leg room making the Suzuki Vitara very easy to get in and out of.

We did find the front seats a bit unsupportive but they were adjustable for height and recline and the leather covered steering wheel is adjustable for reach and rake.

The boot acommodates 375 litres with the rear seats up and 710 litres with  60:40 split rear seats down and features a removable double height luggage area floor with bag hooks & tie down hooks.  The Nissan Qashqai’s boot can accommodate 430 litres / 1585 litres.

Petrol models can tow up to a maximum braked weight of 1200 kg’s and the diesel 1500 kg’s. (The 1.6 DDiS diesel ALLGRIP TCSS (6-speed dual clutch automatic system) 1200 kg).

All round vision is excellent and a rear parking camera is standard on SZ-T models and above. Front & rear parking sensors are standard on SZ5 models and above.

Our test car was equipped with engine auto stop start system (EASS), adaptive cruise control with speed limiter, keyless entry & start, double sliding panoramic sun-roof, automatic air conditioning, automatic headlamps & levelling, suede & leather seat upholstery,  urban pack - rear spoiler, side body mouldings & front fog lamp bezels, 2 cup holders and large door bins with bottle holders in all doors and front passenger side seat back pocket.

We were impressed that the Vitara (SZ5 model and above) is equipped with LED headlights and LED daytime running lights as standard. Not only do they contribute towards energy saving but they are attractive and make a real difference when driving at night.
