Suzuki Drops More Photos Of 2019 Vitara, Prices It From €18,650 In Germany

The Suzuki Vitara has received a mid-cycle makeover this summer and now it’s time to see it in more detail courtesy of an extended official photo gallery.

The 2019MY Vitara adopts a slightly revised design with the exterior adopting a redesigned grille and subtly restyled bumper, new LED taillights and new alloy wheels.

The interior has been updated as well. It gains brighter silver accents on the dashboard, doors and center console, soft padding above the instrument panel, and a geometric pattern for the silver dashboard panel. The instrument cluster has been refreshed too and features a color central information display.

The mechanical changes are more important, though, with the highlight being the new turbocharged Boosterjet engines. Sourced from the S-Cross, they replace the previous model’s normally aspirated 1.6-liter units.

Entry-level 2019 Vitaras gain a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder that delivers 111 PS (109 hp), while more upscale trims are fitted with a 1.4-liter turbo-four producing 140 PS (138 hp) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque. So far, there’s no official word on diesel powertrains.

Suzuki’s AllGrip four-wheel drive system is available as an option for both engines, either with manual or automatic transmissions. The most economical version is the Vitara 1.0 Boosterjet front-wheel-drive manual model with a claimed average fuel economy of 5.3 l/100 km (53.3 mpg UK, 44.4 mpg US) and corresponding CO2 emissions of 121 g/km (NEDC).

The Vitara also sees updates as far as safety is concerned, with the previous model’s Radar Brake Support (RBS) being replaced by Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS). While RBS only relied on millimeter-wave radar, DSBS uses both a monocular camera and laser radar (MFL), adding pedestrian detection to the collision damage mitigation braking function.

DSBS includes Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Suzuki hasn’t released pricing yet in all markets, but in Germany, the 2019 Vitara starts at €18,650 (approximately $21,925), according to the automaker’s local sales website.

    Why the weird lower body molding?

      It was always there. It is so pronounced only on marketing photos, especially in certain color (like the yellow one). It’s really not that visible in person.

    I heard that the Jeep Compass wants its styling back.

    Personally, I’m a bit socked that Suzuki left the US and had stopped selling this and its Grand sibling some years before its exit. No doubt in my mind that, given this addiction to crossovers, this would sell fairly well here. Bad management?

      It would not sell that well to justify all the costs related with having dealerships in US. Nobody would buy 1.6 NA 5 speed engine, which was used as a base motorization in vitara until now, so they could only try to sell 1.4 turbo 6 speed or auto. And that’s it. One car. Suzuki does not have any other model that could be interesting american market. Obviously they would just loose money. And vitara is not that big, which is also a disadvantage on american market. But it is a best seller in other countries, where it was intended to be sold.

    It’s a really cool car and it became quite popular in Europe over the last few years. If I was looking for a fun designed crossover it would be among my top picks. 🙂
