Suzuki confirms All New Vitara Turbo to hit Australian shores in 2016
On Tuesday 15th December 2015, Suzuki Australia announced that an All New Vitara with Turbo will go on sale in Australia in Q2, 2016, based on the Vitara S recently launched in Europe.
The turbocharged petrol engine will bolster the existing line up, offering a new variant for the already successful compact SUV model, which was recently awarded the Drive Car Of The Year – Best City SUV.
Whilst the Vitara launched only three months ago, it is already making its mark on the segment with demand outstripping supply across the country.
Suzuki Australia has confirmed it will retain the entry level RT-S with the current 1.6litre engine at its competitive $22,990 Drive Away price point, offering excellent value for money, whilst a flagship variant including the turbo engine will offer customers a premium, more sporty and powerful option with outstanding fuel efficiency.
The Vitara Turbo available in both 2WD & 4WD, will be Suzuki Australia’s flagship Vitara and will replace the current RT-X variant with which it shares a similar specification level.
Andrew Moore, Suzuki’s General Manager of Automobiles stated “it’s an exciting time for Suzuki, with the turbo engine model set to strengthen what is already a successful model in Vitara, for the brand.”
“In keeping with the outstanding value proposition Vitara already represents, the Vitara Turbo will strengthen this even further as we aim to enable customers to step into our premium and most sporty Vitara for even less.”
Adding to this is the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in every Vitara from January 2016.
Keep your eyes peeled for further information on the Vitara Turbo, including specifications and pricing to be supplied in 2016.
