As before, the Vitara’s FWD variants are motivated by an 86kW/156Nm 1.6-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, which is mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed torque-converter automatic.
The small SUV’s Turbo grade continues to up the ante with a 103kW/220Nm 1.4-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which is exclusively paired with a six-speed torque-converter automatic.
As reported, the MG ZS, Hyundai Kona, Mitsubishi ASX, Mazda CX-30, Nissan Qashqai and Kia Seltos rival is expected to be replaced with a new, fifth-generation model soon, so stay tuned.
