While adding some modern features, the Vitara hasn't moved too far from its previous exterior profile. Maintaining that compact SUV look with a nicely rounded back, mid-sized bonnet, 17-inch alloy wheels, fancy looking LED headlights, and hard black plastic trim.
Inside there are some lovely retro touches as a nod to its history - including an actual clock face in the centre of the dash (although you need an engineering degree, which I don't have, to change the time, as I wanted to at the end of daylight savings).
Analogue rev counter and speedo - which I actually like, with an overall interior that looks more 'fun' than 'luxury.' The seats are a nice soft suede-like fabric called Alcantara, with accents of this on the doors as well.
Across the dash is an attractive metal trim, although when the sun catches it on the wrong angle the glare is distracting.
