The Japanese automaker Suzuki has officially unveiled the 2019 Vitara facelift ahead of its market launch in September this year. Scheduled to be introduced first in the UK, the facelifted Vitara receives a bunch of cosmetic, technical, and feature updates for the 2019 model year along with two new color options and a bunch of new tech and advanced safety features. However, the manufacturer has not announced the official date of launch for the 2019 Vitara as yet.
Mechanically, the 2019 Vitara will be offered with both the 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbocharged petrol engines. Both the engines also empower the updated UK-spec S-Cross model range. The interesting thing here is that the 1.0-litre motor will be replacing the existing 1.6-litre petrol engine. The base variants that will come powered by the 109 bhp, 1.0-litre engine will also get Suzuki's ALLGRIP four-wheel-drive system as an option, while the top-end variant gets the 1.4-litre Boosterjet engine that makes 138 bhp and 220 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties will be carried out by either a 6-speed manual or an automatic gearbox.
