Facelifted Suzuki Vitara gets 1.0 and 1.4 petrol engines

The Suzuki Vitara facelift with the 1.0-litre petrol engine churns out 110hp; meanwhile, the 1.4-litre petrol powertrain delivers 140hp.

Suzuki has taken the wraps off its refreshed Vitara SUV for the worldwide market.

Suzuki's cute and cuddly Vitara SUV is getting a facelift, bringing with it a pair of new engines and a number of new safety features underneath its mildly revised exterior.

From a design standpoint, changes are slight and subtle. There's a redesigned front grille with vertical slats, while the lower section of the front bumper is new too. Topping everything off are a fresh set of alloy wheels.

Over there, Suzuki has chose to ditch the 86kW/156Nm 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine in favour of the 82kW 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder mill.

Inside, the new Suzuki Vitara's upper instrument panel has a soft touch material.

Inside the cabin, buyers might notice the redesigned instrument cluster and the integrated colour screen for the information screen. AllGrip four-wheel drive is available on the SZ-T with the manual gearbox.

Borrowed from the new Swift, the 1.0 is new to the Vitara and provides 109bhp and 125lb ft of torque. There will be no diesel engine option available on the updated Vitara, globally.

The Vitara also gets a big hike in safety kit, with the SZ5 receiving Dual Sensor Brake Support (autonomous emergency braking), Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, Traffic Sign Recognition, a Blind Spot Monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
