The India-bound 2021 Suzuki Vitara will make its global debut in October 2020 with greater dimensions than its predecessors and a 1.4-litre turbo gasoline burner.

The new-gen Suzuki Vitara is expected to be globally debuted in October 2020 prior to its official launch in the second quarter of 2021. The vehicle is likely to serve as the substitute for the Maruti S-Cross, which has not recorded considerable success. The time from now to the second quarter next year will give the Indian largest automaker sufficient time to determine whether the S-Cross is enough for this segment or an new model is required.

The new Suzuki Vitara is anticipated to be 4,200 mm long, 1,780 mm wide and 1,620 mm high, which are slightly larger than its predecessor in all three dimensions. The wheelbase remains unchanged. The greater dimensions will translate into a more amber cabin than before.

The new Suzuki Vitara will bear considerable differences from the outgoing model inside out. The former will look sporty and sharp appearance and have a premium-looking and neat cabin. The international-spec model will receive its power from a 1.4-litre inline-4 turbo ‘Boosterjet’ gasoline burner which can deliver 129 PS against 253 Nm. A 48V SHVS mild-hybrid system on the new Vitara is also available on the Suzuki Vitara to enhance its fuel mileage and performance.

Maruti S-Cross Petrol To Launch Later This Month

The India-bound Suzuki Vitara’s 1.4-litre turbo petrol motor will give way to a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated K-series one borrowed from the S-Cross petrol. Once launched in India, the Suzuki Vitara will directly compete against the Kia Seltos, Renault Duster, Hyundai Creta and Nissan Captur.
