Suzuki is developing the facelifted version of the Vitara crossover, with our spies spotting a test car near the Arctic Circle where they managed to take a look into the interior as well.
The car you see in the pictures from our partners at S. Baldauf / SB-Medien features pretty much the same amount of camouflage with our previous scoops. The wrap covers the key points of the update – the front and the rear end.
This means that the 2019 Suzuki Vitara is expected to get a redesigned front bumper, headlights and grille, with the opposite end getting a similar treatment.
The facelifted version will also introduce an upgraded list of active safety systems, with the test car showing off its new sensor mounted on the lower part of the front bumper.
As part of the facelift, the interior is also expected to get an update with new upholstery and trim materials for the seats and dashboard. However our first look inside reveals a cabin that pretty much looks the same with the current model.
We still don’t know if Suzuki is planning to make any changes to the engine range, with the current model currently employing a 1.6-liter petrol, a 1.6-liter diesel and a turbocharged 1.4-liter BoosterJet unit. Suzuki might decide to replace the 1.6-liter petrol unit with the turbocharged 1.0-liter BoosterJet unit known from the Baleno, but that’s just speculation at this point.
Suzuki is planning to reveal the facelifted 2019 Vitara later this year, with sales set to begin towards the end of 2018.
