The Vitara is part of a long and successful line of versatile Suzuki products that have become favorites across the Caribbean. The Vitara’s roots can be traced back to the rug- ged open-topped SJ (Small Jeep) models of the early 1970s, which proved hugely popu- lar as both leisure and working vehicles. Currently available in the Caribbean with a 1.6-litre petrol engine, five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, 2-wheel Drive or ALLGRIP intelligent 4-wheel Drive, the Vitara carries the SUV concept further . . . but without losing the fun element that has been a staple part of its character. The aim with the new Vitara was to make the driving experience as close as possible to that of the sporty Suzuki Swift, while maintaining the practicality of an SUV. Its sprightly performance is matched with agile and nimble handling, clinging to the road when you step up the pace. The raised driving position and light steer- ing make it well-suited to driving around town but, if you order the optional ALLGRIP 4-wheel Drive and feel like heading to the hills for a little gentle off-roading, then you will definitely find that fun. With the new Vitara, Suzuki have encour- aged you to ‘Make it Yours’ with a huge range of personalization options. These in- clude contrast roof, Urban or Rugged styling packs and Interior options for colour coded trims. The Suzuki Vitara is available in 2WD and ALLGRIP 4WD across the Caribbean!
