Design Updates and not only for the mid-career facelift of the 2020 Suzuki Vitara. New Full LED optics, both front and rear, and a new 1.0 petrol engine
The Japanese company has removed the veils from the 2020 Suzuki Vitara. The mid-career restyling comes about 4 years after the presentation of the current Vitara, and was widely anticipated by several spy photos in the previous months. Some images and a few details: Suzuki only wanted to anticipate the facelift, reserving the right to reveal all the details in September, during the official presentation.
On the front, we find a new bumper strip, which gives it a more modern and fresh look. Behind them, the optical groups have been redesigned, with an internal geometry designed by LEDs, and changes the shape of the bumper shield. The new alloy wheels and two new colors for the body complete the whole.
Modifications to the bumpers may vary slightly in length, although the dimensions of the Suzuki Vitara 2019 are similar to those of the current model: 4.18 meters in length, 1.78 meters in width and 1.61 meters in height.
In the absence of photos, for the interior of the Suzuki Vitara 2020, we must rely on the words of the brand: materials change, with the arrival of soft-touch plastics (probably for the top of the dashboard), and the seats are redesigned. All aimed at improving the perceived quality.
The instrument panel now adopts a new color central display, while we can also expect an update of the infotainment system.
