Stories about 2019 Suzuki Vitara are not just wishes and imaginations of crossover’s fans. The SUV is coming, and spy shots are confirming that. Since 2015 it belongs to the compact segment. Its sibling, Grand Vitara is bigger. Interior of the new crossover will get an update. Engine room keeps the BoosterJet unit. Release in the US is still unconfirmed. However, Vitara will get a diesel drivetrain in most markets where it is available. In the United States, Suzuki is going with a petrol unit.
The new 2019 Suzuki Vitara is spied and we could see it soon on streets. Experts already noticed changes, while we will also get mechanical updates. Some other vehicles from the same company can unveil them. The heavy cover on the front and rear fascia could mean a mid-cycle facelift is coming.
2019 Suzuki Vitara Redesign
The current generation of the Vitara compact SUV was launched in 2015. Now it is time for first serious upgrades and facelift. Heavy camo we can see on spy shots are covering front fascia. By that, the company tries to hide the biggest changes. Well, we still don’t know how these parts will look like, but spy photos confirm changes.
We have no clues what changes are coming for the interior. The spied 2019 Suzuki Vitara is pretty plain. The Japanese carmaker can’t go out with such model, especially nowadays. Today, the competition is tough, and a touch-screen display is not an advanced feature anymore. Suzuki must think about Apple CarPlay and Android Auto if they want to be competitive on the market with new 2019 Vitara.
2019 Suzuki Vitara BoosterJet 4×4 Engine
Some leaked info is speaking of downsizing the engine lineup of the 2019 Suzuki Vitara. If that happens, we could see the crossover riding on a 1.0-liter unit. This one would replace a 1.6-l four-cylinder powertrain that is available for the current version. The new unit is good for 110 hp, which only 5 hp less than bigger drivetrain can offer.
However, a 1.4-liter turbo-four is certain. The SUV keeps BoosterJet unit for the next edition. It is good for 140 horses and 160 lb-ft of torque. With this unit and 44 drive system, 2019 Suzuki Vitara will be able to reach 60 mph in 10 seconds and achieve a top speed of 124 mph. We can expect from engineers to reduce emissions.
The final solution for the 2019 Suzuki Vitara is a diesel drivetrain. We could already see a 1.6-liter four-pot unit before. However, owners of such engine complained about its sound. Petrol unit that could be past from 2019 Vitara, is much quieter than diesel. But, this engine is more economical on the other hand. So, buyers which see no problems with noise will definitely pick a diesel powertrain.
2019 Suzuki Vitara Price
The price of the 2019 Suzuki Vitara will start from about $26,000. This model is very popular in the UK and Australia. Most of its sales are for the right-hand mounted steering wheel. Whatsoever, buyers in the rest of the world will also get the new Vitara, while its return to the US is still questionable.
