2019 Vitara Facelift Looks Aggressive In These New Images
It feels as though the Vitara just grew a little more mature. Suzuki refreshed the Vitara earlier this year, and has now added a few more pictures to its official album. It has been one of Suzuki’s most consistent products in recent times. I must admit that the 2019 Vitara looks great with the new nose-job. However, the highlight is the addition of the new engine. Continue reading to find out.
Ever since it became a subcompact crossover, the Suzuki Vitara has managed to outsell almost everything in its class. I cannot say that Suzuki hit the jackpot with it, but it sure got close. Really close. Now in its third year of production, the car has received a mid-cycle facelift that gives it exterior features and a more refined cabin. It Completely ditched the most popular engine from the lineup, though. The 1.6-liter, naturally aspirated engine was replaced with the Boosterjet engine. It is a 1.0-liter that’s good for 109 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. Obviously, not the most powerful engine out there, but it is expected to outsell the other one in the line up (the 1.4-liter, 138 horsepower engine) by quite a margin.
2019 Suzuki Jimny
Most Americans miss out on some really interesting things. Fine, missing out on Kinder eggs is one thing, but missing out on some amazing cars is where we should draw the line.
Take for example the Suzuki Jimny - a pocket-size off-roader capable of treading where only a few would dare. After three generations and more than 2.25 million units sold since 1970, Suzuki finally revealed the first official photos of the fourth generation Jimny.
And, that only happened after some customers captured photos of the new Jimny at a Suzuki private event and published them online. An official live presentation is scheduled for the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
The Vitara, one of Suzuki’s most iconic vehicles, was launched in 1988 as a compact SUV. Dubbed Escudo in Japan and Sidekick in the United States, the small crossover came to North America for the 1989 model year. The Vitara name, mostly used in Europe and some South American and Asian market, was introduced in the United States starting 1999. That’s when the second-gen Vitara was born as a slightly larger, pricier and more powerful version of the first-gen model. A replacement was developed for 2005, but the current Grand Vitara has very little in common with the original concept. For 2015, however, the Vitara nameplate is making a surprising return to its roots, as it’s pinned as a compact SUV destined to compete against the Nissan Juke.
Set to break cover at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October, the brand-new Vitara promises to have "a striking road presence," a "distinctive design," and numerous personalization options, the latter a feat Suzuki rarely offers. So is the Vitara signaling the Japanese are reinventing themselves? It’s a bit too early to draw a conclusion, but the compact SUV is definitely a new approach for a company such as Suzuki.

The production version of the S-Cross will be built with the company’s slogan - "Way of Life!" - in mind and will focus on delivering exceptionally low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In fact, Suzuki has promised that it will be amongst the lowest CO2 emitting cars in the crossover C-segment.
The S-Cross concept features a specially created Crystal Green Metallic body color and not by accident. According to Suzuki, the image it evokes is one of "nature in the city and the city in nature" - yet another statement of the promised lowest CO2 emissions.

A new small car unveiled at the Paris Auto Show: the Alto — the fifth and smallest member of its acclaimed lineup of world strategic models. The new Alto combines eye-catching style and easy urban mobility with great performance in terms of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions, thereby meeting the lifestyle needs of today’s motorists and the pressing global need for environmental compatibility.
The Alto is powered by a 1.0 liter petrol engine developing 68 hp at 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm mated to a choice between a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox. Fuel consumption is low at 62.7 mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions are just 103g/km.
Suzuki aims to achieve annual sales of 60,000 units in Europe following a sales launch in spring 2009.
Suzuki will unveil at the Paris Auto Show its new Alto. This car is based on the A-Star concept revealed in March at the Geneva Auto Show.
Although Suzuki did not reveal any details on the new Alto, we can tell you that under the hood there will be a newly developed 1.0-liter aluminum engine with CO2 emission under 110 grams per kilometer. The new engine is said to be compliant with the new strict Euro-5 emission standards.
