Nearly four years after the current generation Suzuki Vitara arrived, in comes the mid-cycle facelift. Below is the visual comparison between the 2015 Suzuki Vitara and 2019 Suzuki Vitara.
The 2019 Suzuki Vitara has refreshed front and rear fascias, new design alloy wheels, slightly more premium interior and safety enhancements. Beginning with the changes to the front and rear, Suzuki has introduced a redesigned grille with six vertical chrome slats, revised lower air intake, modified bumpers and a sleeker tailgate garnish. The compact SUV’s tail lamps have incorporated LEDs.
Inside, the new Suzuki Vitara’s upper instrument panel has a soft touch material. The instrument cluster has a fresher design and a colour MID. The C-SUV has several new advanced safety technologies on board, such as Dual Sensor Brake Support, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

With the mid-cycle refresh, the Suzuki Vitara has gained the K10C 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produces 82 kW (111 PS) and 170 Nm (with 5-speed manual transmission)/160 Nm (with 6-speed automatic transmission) of torque. The M16A 1.6-litre petrol engine is set to go out of duty, though, at least in the UK.
The 2019 Suzuki Vitara's UK launch will take place in September 2018. While some units of the Suzuki Vitara have been spotted in India, they appear to be here for component testing purpose.
