Suzuki Vitara Series II unveiled ahead of Q1 2019 arrival

Suzuki’s next generation Vitara Series II has been confirmed for the Australian market with local launch slated for the first quarter of 2019.

Key changes include a revised exterior with new two-tone colour options along with substantial improvements in technology and safety. The Vitara Series II range will be available in three variants: Vitara, Vitara Turbo and Vitara Turbo AllGrip.

The introduction of facelifted Vitara Series II will mark the end of Vitara RT-X Diesel in the Australian market.

Suzuki Australia General Manager – Automobile, Mr. Michael Pachota said the introduction of the Vitara Series II presented an opportunity to refine Suzuki’s offering to meet the needs of today’s buyers.

“The Vitara RT-X Diesel has sold in the Australian market for a number of years. But as consumers continue to make greener living decisions we’ve listened to the voices of our customers and made an informed decision to discontinue the Vitara RT-X moving forward,” said Pachota.

The current Vitara petrol engine line-up consists of the 1.6-litre four cylinder unit that makes a modest 86kW at 6000rpm and 156Nm at 4400rpm, plus the 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbocharged direct-injected petrol engine delivering 103kW and 220Nm.

Full pricing and specification of the Vitara Series II will be announced closer to launch in early 2019.
