2016 Suzuki Vitara released in UAE, KSA & GCC
Suzuki launched the all-new Vitara in the UAE and few other GCC countries recently. The “Grand” has been dropped from the name, and is a completely different vehicle from the previous model. It is based on the iV-4 concept, which was first exhibited at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2013.
Under the hood, it gets a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine, mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The motor churns out about 115 hp and 156 Nm of torque, and has a top speed of 180 kph.
The base model is front-wheel drive, while the ALLGRIP four-wheel drive system, a driving system that helps read different terrains, will be available on the higher variants. Two trims are available, a GLX and a GLX+ model, with the top model coming with panoramic roof and polished alloy-wheels.
The Hungarian-built Vitara is also the first compact SUV to earn a 5-star overall rating from 2015 European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) testing program.
