Best city SUV – Suzuki Vitara

At Moss Vale Suzuki we’re cheering for the Suzuki Vitara’s big win! In a last-minute faceoff with the Jeep Renegade, the Suzuki Vitara has yet again taken first place in Drive’s 2016 “Best City SUV” category, and with good reason. In Drive’s own words: “The Vitara was a good car a year ago, and today it’s even better”.

The Vitara stunned judges with its perfect balance between comfort, performance and features, all at a price point and running cost that young families can afford. Many commented that driving the Vitara had the agility, lightness and handling of a four-door hatchback; but with the space, height and 5-star safety rating of a compact SUV. Not to mention that the light build and efficient engine give great fuel economy at 5.9 litres per 100km.

In the 2015 awards, judges loved the Vitara because it was easy to park, easy to drive and easy on the eye. The Vitara didn’t quite have the most powerful engine in its category back then (it won first place anyway), so the light engine size was mentioned to Suzuki. Suzuki took that advice and bumped up the engine; stepping the Vitara up to a 1.4 litre direct-injected turbo charged engine with petrol and diesel options that you can choose at the dealership.

Even though the Jeep came in at a lower outright price, Suzuki’s Vitara was decidedly more economical due to lower running costs and a very generous number of included features.  Both cars feature extended warranty (three years/100 000km), seven airbags and a 5-star safety rating. For a $1000 more the Vitara packs on sat-nav; front and rear parking sensors; leather accented and suede seats; extra legroom; a larger touch-screen display (7-inch); and Apple CarPlay. If that’s not enough, you can personalise your Vitara with choices of interior trim colours, two-tone body colours and heaps of extra accessories. Just because!

Moss Vale Suzuki is excited to be able to offer you this amazing city SUV that Drive’s judges have crowned the best two years in a row. Come in for a test drive and judge the Vitara for yourself – see you at the dealership!
