For 2019, the Suzuki Vitara has had a deliberately modest facelift, with a new front bumper, a redesigned front grille, and some funky LEDs for the rear light clusters. More substantial changes take place under the bonnet, where you’ll find a pair of new Boosterjet engines instead of the old 1.6-litre units.
“When I first saw this course, I thought to myself ‘Suzuki have been very brave here. Maybe too brave.'” These were the words of our pro-instructor as we peered up a steep, muddy and rocky hill, littered with axle-twisters. But then, as our minder’s words faded from our ears, the little Jimny cast them aside and just crawled up it. Brave isn’t the word. It’s damn near heroic.
The new Suzuki Jimny will be priced from £15,499 when it goes on sale in January 2019, and in a choice of two models - SZ4 and SZ5.
The Suzuki Vitara, currently the company's most popular model in the range, has been updated for the 2019 model year with new engines and modest styling tweaks.

The new Suzuki Swift Sport marks the welcome return of a formula many had left behind - modest power, fun handling, and light weight - mixed in with a few updates to make it a better fit for the modern, overly-congested world.
The new third-generation Suzuki Swift Sport has been unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show today, picking up where the well-regarded second generation model left off.
If, like me, you’re of a certain age, you’ll probably remember being buzzed by a Suzuki Whizzkid. Despite having less than 50hp to play with, these little tykes had a habit of appearing in your rear-view mirror as if from nowhere before whirring past the instant a tiny gap appeared. As anyone who drove one knew, the secret to making progress was to maintain momentum at all costs. Clearly, someone at Suzuki has similarly fond memories, because the new Ignis feels like the Whizzkid’s spiritual successor.
When we reviewed the Suzuki Vitara last year, we felt it was somewhat lacking in the requisite ‘fun factor’ hinted at by the Vitara name. Much of the blame for that, we felt, lay with the rather leisurely range of engines, so when Suzuki announced the arrival of their new 1.4-litre turbocharged ‘Boosterjet’ unit, we wanted to take another crack at it.

Potentially answering our criticism that the current Vitara engine line-up isn't much fun is this, the new Vitara S. It uses a new 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine with what Suzuki calls Boosterjet technology.
