Suzuki Vitara 2021 Accessories

If you can see past the lack of AEB, the base Vitara is well equipped.

You'll find seven airbags (including a driver’s knee item), stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist and traction control.

However, the ever-wily Suzuki does make up for the lack of driver-assist safety with items usually found on mid-grade versions of rival SUVs, like imbedded satellite navigation (as part of a colourful multimedia touchscreen system that also houses a reverse camera, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity), voice control, paddle shifters, keyless entry/start, climate control air-con with pollen filter, front fog lights, roof rails and 17-inch alloy wheels (shod with quality Continental tyres).

Suzuki Vitara 2021 Interior

There's still plenty to appreciate the instant you slide yourself on to those lofty cushions.

The Vitara is packaged to transport a smaller family (and include much of their clobber) with ease, from the moment the big doors open. An excellent driving position that inspires confidence, heaps of storage in the doors and centre console, good vision and a light and airy ambience are further drawcards.

In 2021, the dash has held up pretty well, mainly due to clear instrument dials and Suzuki’s ever-present 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system that is ridiculously easy to operate. Never mind the hard and cheap-looking lower-lying plastics, the cabin is beautifully screwed together as well. And it's likely to stay that way for a very long time.

But there are annoyances, beginning with the lack of digital speedometer, especially now that the cheapest Vitara is a near-$30K proposition; for the same reason we’d have hoped for a DAB+ digital radio, auto lights on, rear-seat cupholders and more than just one USB port (located under the climate control system).

Moving to the rear seats, there's heaps of headroom; the raised rear cushion promotes a natural posture which is good for longer journeys, and enough room for three smaller adults to squeeze in. Larger feet can be tucked underneath the front seats too.

However, besides there being no device-charging facilities, you’ll also notice the lack of reading lights, rear air vents (though the front outlets' outputs do reach back OK) and beverage storage. At least the doors have space for a one-litre bottle and the overhead grab handles include coat hooks. And, like the front, it's all light and airy, with good sight lines for bored back-seat riders to stare out from.

Beyond that, the boot is fairly large big and square, with a bi-level floor that’s good for hiding smaller items, while there are hooks, a light and 120V outlet for rear-seat occupants to snake some hapless charger cord to.

All in all, a big, spacious and inviting interior that’s big on practicality and ease, but also showing its age in a few places.

Suzuki Vitara 2021 Boot Space

Cargo capacity is rated at 375 litres – raising to 710L with the 60/40 rear backrests lowered. It’s nice to see a good old-fashioned luggage board instead of the flimsy mesh items some rivals foist upon us nowadays.

Suzuki Vitara 2021 Seats

While the Vitara's front seats may seem a bit wide and flat to begin with, they're amply supportive over an extended time in them, with a softness to their shape and texture that makes them quite cosy. No lumbar support for the driver is disappointing, though.

Getting in and out of the rear seat is simple, aided by wide doors and lofty seating, again on flat but ultimately comfortable cushions and backrest, though they neither slide or recline as with some other small SUVs.

The backrests are split to fold 60/40 for added practicality and cargo-carrying permutations.
