Maruti Testing Suzuki Vitara in India with possibly the all new 1.5 diesel motor under the hood. SUV will go against Hyundai Creta
Last month they were spy pictures all over the internet of the Suzuki Vitara testing. The car has been spotted again from Team BHP member. Having a look at the spy image, the license plate on the test car is similar to the one which was spotted last month in March. According to the registration details from the license plate of this test car, we come to know that it is a Vitara diesel version. This car has been registered in the name of Maruti Suzuki India Limited.
As the spy shots show, this test mule has a shade of metallic turquoise while the emblem of Suzuki at the front and the rear has been masked. At the front, the Suzuki Vitara gets chrome grille with fog lamps and LED Daytime Running Lights. As we move towards the side profile of this car, we see that the B-Pillar has been completely blacked out and the wheel arches get black plastic cladding. Speaking about the wheels, this test mule is running on five-spoke alloy wheels. On the other hand, the rear window, rear windshield and the quarter glass get a dark tint as compared to the other window glass and windshield on this car.
If we look at the global market, Suzuki has positioned the Vitara above the S-Cross. And in the global market, the Vitara gets two petrol mills and one diesel mill as an option. The diesel engine is a 1.6-litre unit which produces 118bhp of power and 320Nm of twist. On the other hand, the petrol mills include the 1.6-litre generating 118bhp of power and 156Nm of twist, while it also gets a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit which churns out 138bhp of power and 220Nm of twist. Speaking about the transmission, Suzuki offers a five-speed manual, six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transfers case accordingly. And to spice things up the Viatara comes with an optional All-Wheel Drive unit.
