    Reminds me of a cross between a Range Rover and a Mitsubishi Outlander. Like most other automakers, they've got the CUV route with this, it appears.

    Just another bland vehicle to blend into the crowd once again.

    It's just incredible the 180 Suzuki has taken in these past couple years.

    The new soft Vitara is coming to dealerships in March over here.
    There were preview presentations for prospective buyers in January. I had an invitation but couldn't go.

    The prices are quite competitive, but there isn't much to compete with

    Pros:
    + no downsized 3-cylinder turbo but a proper 1.6 VVTi as the entry engine (although rumour has it there's a 1.4 turbo in the pipeline)
    + AllGrip 4WD system available in all trims (unlike in its current rivals which often don't even offer 4WD at all)
    + advanced personalization options (14 body color combinations)
    + Possibly good mileage with low overall weight of the car
    + Decent amount of equipment and space

    Cons:
    - Some useful features only available in the most expensive top trim (for example, keyless entry & start), while we're offered standard gadgets like Hill Hold Control or Engine Start/Stop
    - Just 185 mm ground clearance
    - Body styling does not appeal to me very much
    - No spare wheel at all (repair kit only)

    Surpises:
    - LED headlights on the top trim instead of HIDs

    Colors here:

    Sorry, could not find anything in English yet.

    Sweet. Wrong tires, though.

    After seeing the price list here (12.990 EUR base petrol to 22.340 EUR top diesel) my only doubt is what color?

    I even decided on the colour and the level of equipment. The problems are:
    - I'm still enjoying my sx4;
    - I'm still having plans with my sx4 (better base for some off-road upgrades compared to Vitara);
    - I'm still paying for my sx4...

    Same thoughts exactly here

    Wife would like the turquoise one. Did not pause for a sec.
    I'd take black or pearl white/black roof or grey/black roof, or...?

    But honestly, I am waiting for some other equipment options. The current ones don't appeal to me at all (or to my wallet)

    And I just bumped into this on SX4 FB group.



    I doubt it will be in the Europe but it would be so cool to have it. At least something Japanese on this car.
