Review: Suzuki Vitara 2021


Review: Suzuki Vitara 2021

If you are looking for a great handling SUV, then the Suzuki Vitara is a car lease to consider.

While the interior may not match premium rivals, there's lots of space, plenty of kit and a fuel-efficient petrol engine to consider.

The Vitara also has a sharp design and it delivers rugged and reliable motoring.

The on-road handling characteristics have been improved with the latest model and it is a capable offering - and there's also a four-wheel drive model.

All-wheel drive contract hire car

Indeed, for those who need an all-wheel drive contract hire car, the Suzuki Vitara is an ideal choice for use in adverse weather conditions or on rough roads. Opt for a model with Allgrip four-wheel drive, and the Vitara will go just about anywhere.

The latest model underwent a revamp with a polished exterior design to make it look more modern but still delivered great handling and performance.

There's just one petrol engine - a 1.4-litre 'Booster Jet' petrol unit with mild-hybrid technology for better levels of economy and performance.

Fuel economy is around 55mpg with emissions of 128g/km to offer an attractive Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rate for those considering a company car.

The all-wheel drive versions return around 45mpg with slightly higher emissions and this is also more expensive to buy or lease.

Around town, the light steering delivers a rewarding - and, it has to be said, a fun - drive and it's a comfortable cruiser on motorways.

The engine is responsive and the four-wheel drive versions offer driving modes to suit the style of road and the driver's own style. For long motorway journeys, the 'auto' mode in the Allgrip models will select two-wheel drive to save fuel.

A perfect leasing choice

The Suzuki Vitara is also a safe car, and a perfect leasing choice for families.

It has five stars from Euro NCAP and safety kit includes automatic braking, hill-hold assist, cruise control and electronic stability control.

The top range model, the SZ5, includes radar brake support and hill-descent control.

As mentioned, this is a spacious car, with lots of storage space dotted around the cabin.

The boot size is 375 litres, which extends to 1,160 litres with the rear seats folded down.

Equipment for the Suzuki Vitara

There's plenty of equipment on the Suzuki Vitara including a DAB digital radio, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic air-conditioning and adaptive cruise control.

The SZ-T offers larger alloy wheels, a bigger touchscreen with satnav and rear privacy glass. There's also smartphone connectivity and a reversing camera.

The range-topper is the SZ5 which offers rear and front parking sensors, keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof and folding mirrors.

There is a range of options too, including a distinctive metallic orange paint, chance to change the colour of the car's front grille and the instrument panel.

Behind the wheel, the Vitara is a comfortable car for driving around town and it is a smooth motorway cruiser; it's stable at speed and when cornering. The cabin is a comfortable place to spend time in.

Suzuki Vitara car leasing

Essentially, there's a lot to like about the Suzuki Vitara car leasing opportunity, it's a well-equipped and comfortable vehicle with lots of space which makes it an ideal choice for families wanting a well-made SUV with reasonable running costs.
