Suzuki Vitara

Currently in its fourth generation, the Suzuki Vitara has a long heritage in the now-crowded small SUV segment. Available in two-wheel or four-wheel drives, manual or automatic, and with a bunch of trim levels, it comes with a solid range of personalisation options. This helps the Vitara hold its own against popular rivals like the SEAT Arona, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Cross. Through the years, it’s also come with a choice of decent petrol, diesel and hybrid engines. Surprisingly fun to drive yet practically minded, the Suzuki Vitara offers great value and lots of space for carrying passengers.
