Updated Suzuki Vitara: all changes

Za rulem tested the Vitara and… missed a lot of what was waiting for our car owners and that there are European versions of the car.Maxim Homann “Behind the wheel”

The redesigned Vitara: “redrawn” radiator grille and bumper, new wheels.The redesigned Vitara: “redrawn” radiator grille and bumper, new wheels.

It was hoped that the redesigned Vitara will appear the same electronic “charms” that the European cars – the system of monitoring of blind spots, traffic sign recognition and auto brake. But alas. We got only superficially refreshed the machine with a few changes in the cabin.

Soft plastic front panel and adjustable armrest between the front seats is good. But the Japanese economy on the things indestructible. Automatic window regulator only at the driver. There is no rear armrest and pocket in the back of the driver’s seat. And for such indispensable in our cold options like a heater, windshield and steering, need to go to generous “Koreans”.

In Europe, the 117‑strong aspirated 1.6-liter was changed to 1,1‑litre turbo engine, 111 “horses”. But we have a liter “turbo” don’t like, so the old motor had left — in conjunction with the five-speed mechanics or six-speed hydromechanical automatic machine Aisin. Alternative — forced motor Boosterjet with 140 HP in combination with the same machine.

The top front panel of soft plastic. Silver insert in the centre — a feature of all machines, its color cannot be changed.The top front panel of soft plastic. Silver insert in the centre — a feature of all machines, its color cannot be changed.

I took a 140‑horsepower four-wheel drive Vitara. Will prohvatit on a primer! Include a winter mode, the Lock button, locking the electromagnetic clutch. But an inner voice advises: wait, look at the bottom!

A ring of steel with a thickness of two millimeters is set by the dealer. It is attached to the subframe and not only protects the sump of the engine and the transmission, but the radiator. Even strong shocks can not be afraid — this is not a plastic duster. But under the protection, I intend to only 150 mm — with such clearance not to be messed with. Without the protection of the claimed ground clearance is 185 mm.

My car is covered and the rear gearbox, and dealers offer “armour” for the gas tank. Vadim Nazarov, coach product and sales Suzuki, to further protect the tank is not advised. First, it will eat up ground clearance, and secondly, the plastic tank is already strong. Training by beating him with a hammer, and the plastic has never cracked.

Spring primer Vitara feels more confident. Irregularities fulfills harsh, but the suspension does not break. Hear the gnashing of soil protection. Maybe slip viscous place? Gas! The stones and the earth furiously beating on the wheel arches. Loud. Over the insulation we ought to work.

Talents Vitara disclosed on the pavement. Dense chassis to my liking. The setting of steering control changed, and still the void is not gone: bagel informative and accurate. Automatic transmission clicks softly, precisely metered brake deceleration.

On Vitara offer packages of personalization. Body color will stain plastic trims on the doors, ventilation baffles, change the design of the watch, and on the rim of the steering wheel will appear contrast stitching.On Vitara offer packages of personalization.

Buyers are lured not only bold, two-tone painting machines, dealers offer elements of the interior body. But to catch the color can be few. The base (front-wheel drive and mechanics) 1 179 000 rubles, and all-wheel drive machine is estimated to 1 709 000 rubles — and this is without modern electronics and Goodies, panoramic roof, abandoned for relatively reasonable prices.

Vitara — Suzuki is the most popular in Russia, but last year sold only 4192 cars. In comparison with the leading Krutoy (66 432 car) it tears. Remind Vitara comes to us from Hungary, and competitors localized in Russia. Of course, Creta, Duster and Kaptur easier, but cheaper. That’s the whole secret.

On all machines — led rear optics. The reversing light is now at the bottom, and this is the most dirty place.On all machines — led rear optics. The reversing light is now at the bottom, and this is the most dirty place.
