Suzuki Vitara Hybrid in the AUTO BILD long-term test

What do you think of when you hear Suzuki Vitara? A SUV, medium-sized, medium-beautiful and probably medium-good too, came first to my mind when our test car boss put the key on the table. Yes, I’ve driven a Vitara before, one lasting impression the Japanese obviously hadn’t left me with me.

Wrongly as I did after the first few thousand kilometers with our brand new endurance testSuzuki I have to admit: Just a few minutes after the light blue Vitara rolled into the editorial garage, we both made our way to the finale of the Golden Steering Wheel at the Lausitzring. Enough time to get to know each other. And to make a good impression this time: At 4.18 meters in length, the Suzuki is handy and clearbut still amazing spacious.

Suzuki Vitara: clear and surprisingly spacious. The infotainment looks antiquated.

the Seats do not tweak even after several hundred kilometers at a time, that one Shift lever slips well through the streets, the 48 volt mildly hybridized 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine is quiet and sufficiently powerful; He only has to prove the promised 190 km / h top speed when he has retracted. And that too optional all-wheel drive did not have to demonstrate his skills on the autobahn, but will have enough opportunity in the approaching winter. What bothers? That infotainment looks very antiquated – but can be modernized in no time thanks to Apple CarPlay.

The Suzuki Vitara Hybrid is available from 25,450 euros. Our test car costs 32,150 euros including extras.
