A new Suzuki Vitara model has been added to the range – the S.

The Vitara S incorporates unique components, including gloss black 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear upper spoiler and satin silver door mirrors. The exterior modifications are there to distinguish the S from the rest of the Vitara range.

The Vitara has been hugely successful since its launch in July, having sold just over 5,000 units so far. The S, being launched in January, is hoping to build on this success.

Inside, the S features seven airbags, DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and automatic air conditioning. Front and rear electric windows come as standard too. It is available in four colours – Bright Red, Cool White Pearl metallic, Galactic Grey metallic and Cosmic Black.

Underneath the bonnet, the S utilises a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine, which has an impressive 220Nm of torque but can still return a combined fuel economy of 52.3mpg in the manual car.

Priced at £20,899 for the manual and £22,249, the Vitara S is offers economical motoring at a competitive price.

The Vitara also incorporates a four wheel drive system featuring Suzuki’s ALLGRIP technology, which offers four driver-selectable modes for capable driving on whatever surface. The system enables the engine to provide power to the rear wheels should it detect that the front wheels are slipping.

Also, the Vitara achieved the maximum five stars in the 2015 EURO NCAP safety tests, making it an incredibly safe car – and the first compact SUV to earn five stars in the most recent tests.
