The current Suzuki Vitara has been on a market since 2015. So, the Japanese Automaker has decided to launch the all new 2018 Suzuki Vitara. Although, it has been very successful and popular on the road, the car maker didn’t have to make any large changes on the upcoming model. Since it is relatively fresh, there won`t be major cosmetic refreshments just some upgrades considering safety and tech features.
The new Vitara has been caught testing in Sweden. Based on the camouflage which was mostly placed in the front, we assume that there will be some adjustments in that area. Furthermore, we will most likely see some changes in the current engine range. The interior and infotainment package will get a few upgrades too. All in all, with all these small but noticeable changes, the new Suzuki will keep its reputation of being one of the best car models in the segment.
2018 Suzuki Vitara types of engines and performances
Speaking of the engine of the 2018 Suzuki Vitara, there is no any official information yet. Everything is still based on rumors which, we believe, will probably come true. The upcoming Vitara will most likely use the same engines which power the current model. So, there will be a choice of diesel and petrol engines under its hood.
The one option will be a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine which will be able to develop 120 horses. The next will be a 1.4-liter four-cylinder BoosterJet engine. This unit will be able to produce 140 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Furthermore, there will be a 1.6-liter DDiS engine which will be more fuel efficient and will provide better torque. This unit will be able to make 120 horses and 320 pound-feet of torque. As for the transmission, there will be a choice between either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions. Some speculations also claim that we will see a new engine under its hood.
Design of exterior and interior
When it comes to exterior design, the all new 2018 Suzuki Vitara won’t show any radical or revolutionary changes. Like we have previously said, the camouflage covers mostly the front fascia of the vehicle, so we assume that it will be the area with most of the changes. What we were able to see, despite the heavy cover, is the different design of the grille. The current model has had a grille with horizontal slats. However, the upcoming Vitara wiil feature new mesh grille with probably honeycomb pattern. As well, the air intake will be revised and placed slightly lower. Furthermore, we have notice a new sensor integrated in the front bumper. This could mean that new Vitara will get new safety package, perhaps automatic emergency braking. The side and the rear end of the vehicle will possibly stay unchanged.
Inside, the new 2018 Suzuki Vitara will probably be revised with upgraded tech features. So, we are expecting to see the new infotainment system which will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Release date and price
The 2018 Suzuki Vitara will probably hit the market in the beginning of 2018. As for the price, we believe that it will be very similar to the current model.
