The Suzuki Vitara as a full hybrid is expected in the spring of next year. The heart of the new Vitara Hybrid is a 24 kW electric motor that not only supports the new 1.5 liter a four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with 75 kW (102HP) when accelerating, can already run the Vitara on its own. The power of the system is 85 kW (116HP). The system is connected to an automated 6-speed manual transmission (AGS).
It is a system offered by Toyota as a Corolla Hybrid, or Suzuki Swace. The new Suzuki Vitara 1.5 Dualjet Hybrid will be offered in two lines of Comfort and Comfort + equipment, each of which can be combined with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The Comfort version already includes an audio system with a smartphone connection, automatic air conditioning and LED headlights.
Standard safety equipment includes active braking assistance with dual-sensor support, lane departure warning system with steering intervention, drowsiness detection, traffic sign recognition, blind spot warning system, parking assistant and reversing camera.
With the new Vitara full hybrid, the SUV model is still available in combination with the classic 129hp 1.4 turbo petrol engine, which is always mated to a mild 48V hybrid system and manual transmission. In addition to the Comfort and Comfort + variants, the initial version of Club is also available here.
