First launched in 1992, the Suzuki Vitara (sometimes known as the Suzuki Grand Vitara) has evolved over the years to be a practical compact SUV that delivers reliable performance. The Suzuki Vitara comes well-equipped with a suite of features and technology that ensure it’s a great choice for meeting the demands of busy family life.

The Vitara provides the space needed for family life while also being compact and affordable, especially when compared to other family SUVs such as the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Toyota C-HR.

Suzuki Vitara updates and facelifts

The latest iteration of the Vitara was launched in 2017 to compete with the rise in demand for small SUVs. Suzuki updated its design, creating a bold and more rugged aesthetic that signals its solid off-roading capabilities. And in 2019, the Vitara’s interior was given a facelift with a new instrument cluster and some extra soft-touch plastics giving it a more modern look. In 2020, Suzuki’s new full-hybrid engine was added, and some subtle design changes were made as well.

You can find a used Suzuki Vitara for sale with petrol, diesel and hybrid engine options which all offer a good level of fuel economy to help keep running costs down. A four-wheel drive version is also available for those expecting to be on rougher and poorer-quality roads.

Practicality and style of the car

Matching its confident, rugged looks, inside the Vitara is functional and spacious. It has a decently sized boot for a compact SUV, offering a capacity of 375 litres which can be expanded up to 710 litres by folding down the rear seats. Designed to have a low lip and a wide opening, it’s easy to load larger items into the Suzuki Vitara’s boot, which is ideal for family luggage and weekly shops.

Packing heavy suitcases into the Vitara for family holidays is also made easier by the adjustable boot floor, which can be lowered or raised to meet the needs of each journey. When raised there is a convenient storage area in which valuables or emergency equipment can be stored out of the way and out of sight underneath the main boot. All this makes for a perfectly practical car for modern family life.

For larger items that require a trailer, the Suzuki Vitara can tow trailers up to 1,200kg, which is a decent capability when compared to rivalling family SUVs. It matches that of the Renault Captur and surpasses the 725kg limit of a Toyota C-HR.

Unlike many of its rivals, the Suzuki Vitara has genuine off-roading capability. AllGrip four-wheel drive models are impressive. The AllGrip system works by increasing traction on rougher terrains by delivering torque to the rear wheels when it senses the front wheels losing grip on the road – this helps deliver a smooth, confident drive and makes the Suzuki Vitara a great choice for those living in the countryside.

Running costs

Falling into insurance groups 11 to 23, for iterations from 2015, and with a road tax up to £180, the Suzuki Vitara is a relatively affordable family car to run, despite often putting down more power and achieving better fuel economy than its rivals.

How a used Suzuki Vitara drives

Used Suzuki Vitaras can come with either petrol, diesel or hybrid engines allowing you to choose the right engine and fuel economy for you.

The petrol engines available are the 1.4-litre BoosterJet engine, which features Suzuki’s turbocharged technology with mild hybrid assistance that helps it accelerate faster than its rivals. This engine can put down a combined power of 127bhp and 235Nm of torque. Alternatively, there is a 1.0-litre petrol engine available, which is capable of 109bhp, and a 1.6-litre petrol engine that can put down around 118bhp. You’ll find decent fuel economy across the range of petrol engines – from up to 53.2mpg with the 1.0-litre engine, 52.3mpg with the 1.4-litre and 53.3mpg with the 1.6-litre.

You can also find a used Suzuki Vitara for sale with a 1.5-litre petrol hybrid engine with an electric engine which can put down a combined 113bhp and 138Nm of torque. This comes with an automatic manual gearbox providing a relaxed driving experience as you don’t have to labour over changing gears.

There is also a diesel engine available on used Suzuki Vitaras. This 1.6-litre powertrain is available on iterations before 2018 and can put down around 118bhp. It is a decent engine for frequent motorway travel as it has a fuel economy of up to 70.6mpg.

You can find manual and automatic transmission options available across the full range of petrol and diesel engines.

Features you can expect in a Suzuki Vitara


With recent facelifts updating the original 1992 model’s chunky body kit, the Vitara now has a more streamlined, modern design but retains its rugged, confident aesthetic. And the simply styled interior feels just as durable and practical.

A used Suzuki Vitara has ample legroom and headroom for passengers, and adults can sit comfortably in the rear seats. The stylish interior is furnished with quality materials and features that make it a pleasurable ride for everyone. The cabin is also well insulated from road and wind noise to help deliver a quiet, enjoyable journey.

Deep door bins provide plenty of space to store useful items for your journey, with enough space for water bottles, keys, phones and more. In the front, there is a decent-sized glovebox as well as several spots to store items you might need close to hand during a long journey such as drinks and snacks. These spaces add to the practicality of the car and help to keep the cabin neat and clutter-free.


In some trims, the dashboard features an attractive analogue clock and a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen, which has smartphone connectivity through the Suzuki’s MirrorLink enabling you to stream music and make hands-free calls while driving. The infotainment system can also come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, adding other options for smartphone connectivity.

Other trim levels come with a four-speaker audio system so that you can play music via Bluetooth or USB connection, as well as a CD player and DAB radio – so there are plenty of options for onboard entertainment. Higher trim levels come with voice guidance that allows you to operate the sat nav and infotainment systems without looking away from the road.

Other features on a used Suzuki Vitara can include cruise control, air conditioning, a reversing camera, rear privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors and a stunning panoramic sunroof.


With the Suzuki Vitara being a family SUV, safety is a top priority, so it is reassuring to know that the Vitara scored a full five-star rating during the Euro NCAP crash tests. Safety features that helped it achieve this high score can include automatic braking, hill-hold assist which helps prevent the car from rolling back when setting off on a hill, cruise control and ISOFIX points in the rear seats to ensure child seats are extra secure. The Vitara also scores highly on occupant protection – for adult protection it scored 89% and for child protection it scored 85%.

Other safety features can include radar brake support which uses sensors located around the car to help you brake before a potential collision, blind spot monitoring and electronic stability control which prevents the vehicle from skidding and helps you stay firmly in control of the vehicle.
