New S model added to Suzuki Vitara range

After just 8 short but successful months, Suzuki has added a new S model to their Vitara range which will be available to order in January 2016. The new S model is characterised by a more sporty and dynamic profile, along with an array of new features, and an all-new 1.4-litre engine with BOOSTERJET technology.

Standard features on all Vitara models include seven airbags, alloy wheels, DAB radio with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control with speed limiter, automatic air conditioning and front and rear electric windows.

Along with these standard features, the Vitara S will also come equipped with 17-inch Gloss black alloy wheels, distinctive grille design, satin silver door mirrors, LED headlamps with red projector covers, rear upper spoiler and black side mouldings.

Inside the cabin the sporting theme will continue with red interior stitching and red accents for the air conditioning vent, instruments and aluminium alloy pedals. For the exterior, customers will have the choice of four bold colours – Bright Red, Cool White Pearl, Galactic Grey and Cosmic Black.

The new S model will be the first Suzuki to utilise the new BOOSTERJET technology engine which in the Vitara is a 140PS 1-4-litre Direct Injection turbocharged unit (DITC). Built with intelligent engineering, this engine offers a perfect blend of both efficiency and power with an acceleration time of 10.2 seconds from 0-62mph, and CO2 emissions of just 127g/km with its standard ALLGRIP system and manual transmission. A six-speed manual transmission is fitted as standard but a six-speed automatic is also available if required.

Thanks to use of high tensile steel and other weight saving measures, the Vitara S is one of the lightest SUV’s in its class weighing just 1,210 kg for the manual transmission. Suzuki’s ALLGRIP system is fitted as standard on the new S model and offers four driver-selectable modes (Auto, Sport, Snow and Lock) for a safe and enjoyable drive whatever the terrain. The Vitara S offers both feed forward control and feedback control for complete safety. The innovative feed forward function enables torque to the rear wheels before any slippage can occur, which results in greater control and stability for the driver.

For total peace of mind the Vitara has also been rated as one of Europe’s safest cars thanks to its maximum 5-star Euro NCAP rating.

The Suzuki Vitara is now available at Sturgess Motor Group from only £169 per month. For more information about the Vitara S and to be one of the first to own one, visit our Suzuki dealership on Aylestone Road, Leicester, or contact us using the buttons below.
