VITARA S – ULTRALIGHT TOW CAR 2016 : 

Suzuki is very pleased to announce that Vitara S has been voted the winner of the Ultralight category at the Tow Car Awards 2016. Suzuki introduced the 1.4-litre Boosterjet  model in January which provides a more sporting and dynamic character to the Vitara line up and it was this latest model that really impressed the judges.  

Commenting on the award, David Motton, Tow Car Editor of Practical Caravan magazine said;

“We were thoroughly impressed with the Vitara diesel we tested last year, and this year's petrol powered Vitara S is light enough to be considered an ultralight tow car. For a car which barely weighs more than 1.2 tonnes, stability at speed was excellent. The Suzuki pulled its trailer to 60mph and well beyond without any waywardness.

The S is powered by a turbocharged petrol engine which performs well, pulling the trailer from 30-60mph in 14.4 seconds. Turbocharging helps give more mid-range pull than you get from most petrols, making for an engine that's surprisingly well suited to towing lightweight trailers and micro-caravans. So, your £20k buys lots of kit, impressive stability and four-wheel drive.

That makes the Vitara a worthy winner of this year's 'Best Ultralight Tow Car' award”.

Dale Wyatt, Sales and Marketing Director, Suzuki GB PLC added; “This is another fantastic  accolade for us at Suzuki; our compact and lightweight SUV is proving to be really popular on the roads now with around 11,000 sold since launch last year.

Vitara is available from £13,999 for the 1.6-litre SZ4 model with manual transmission; the SZ5 model is available with either a 1.6-litre petrol or 1.6 diesel engine and offers ALLGRIP four wheel drive as an option. The 1.4-litre turbo-charged S model tested in the competition offers ALLGRIP as standard equipment.

Vitara is rated one of Europe‘s safest cars according to independent crash testing results from Euro NCAP, and received the maximum 5-star rating. Vitara was also the first compact SUV to earn five stars in the more rigorous 2015 Euro NCAP testing programme which reinforces its exemplary safety.
