New Suzuki Vitara 2016

Recommended Posts

2nd Gear

Hi All would like to start a new thread on the New Suzuki Vitara(2WD and 4WD), Went down to the show room at the new show room at Leng kee, the showroom was crowded, this is the first time I saw the Suzuki show room with this many customer, seem like this Vitara is getting more popular.

 

The cheapest vision of 2WD start with 97K, a good price point to my view, hope to hear more people commenting on this.

It is a good car. But the competition is crazy.

 

Vezel. Qashqai.

 

How to fight?

 

Though I heard that vitara has very good FC. And it's 1.6. Balanced

seems very small. 

 

it's even smaller than qashqai and vezel ( 4175mm vs 4380mm vs 4295mm) about the size of honda fit nia.

So will there be a Grand Vitara? This seems rather small-ish.

This was on my shortlist recently... strike it off my list when i saw it at the showroom. 

The rear leg room and boot is bad.. way too small for my needs. However i do like the panoroma roof which can be opened and the relatively low price... CM also offered an attractive package but the car itself is not my taste.

i started this thread some time ago.

 

http://www.mycarforum.com/topic/2699688-suzuki-vitara-2015/

 

Its buried in the 4th page in this thread. Took me some time to find it.

Only saw one on the road in Singapore so far.

Agree for this price range (4WD model), it has competition like Vezel, QQ, Tuscon etc.

Still to get to the new showroom to see the real thing but my friend (who is driving a GV now) 

was very disappointed because it looks the same as the GV except smaller.

Suzuki have a problem of building cars that look big outside but interior is smaller than its competitors. The old SX4 is also one such example. Looks like they haven't evolved too much in that dept.

If AWD model, then main competition within price range is actually Subaru XV and perhaps, Subaru Forester 2.0 non-turbo version if CAT B COE goes down low enough.

They are the only ones in same price range with AWD.  The rest are only FWD for the same price range.

Had just booked 2WD with "Plus" plan .... No panoramic roof version.

 

 

"Plus" Plan inclusive of the following:-

20K or 1 Year free Servicing

An arm-rest or spoiler

(Hardly attractive)   

 

The freebie sucks to be honest, everything requested kena rejected. Not even the normal - standard front car-cam for goodness sake. I wonder how they're gonna boost their sales lol.

 

 

Wanted S$104,900 (6 bids at 44K COE rebate, super non-guarantee - meaning confirm won't get one lol)

 

but took up S$108,900 (6 bids at 48K COE rebate, non-guarantee but maybe can get eventually). Eventually Sales guy offered me S$108,900 (6 bids at 48K COE rebate, BUT guarantee)

 

* note that to get that Guarantee 6 bids, the cost is S$112,900. So that is attractive to be honest.

 

S$109K total inclusive of retaining my current car plate no.

- 6 Guaranteed COE rebate at 48K

 

I didn't ask for Urban or Sports top-ups at 3K extra because I rather purchase it off Taobao and install it myself.

 

 

Test-drive the car, found it to quiet. The view from the driver seat is good, and pretty spacious. Reviewers on the car from Youtube standing at 1.9m have no problem sitting in front or rear seats ... so for my height of 1.8m .. no need to compare lah, swee swee fit in. Boot isn't super great but spacious enough. The design of the car door is firm and heavy, conti-feel. The ride isn't too rocky and for a 2WD. I read reviews that the interior space is the same as the GV. All in all, thou there's better and nicer cars with specifications out there. I take into consideration my budget and my preference; it is certainly good enough to replace my current outgoing Terios.

 

Requested for the colour code and was informed it should come in around Oct 16. Fine with me, no hurry anyway ......  

 

No need to compare it with the previous GV. Suzuki is no longer producing 2L version. They are going small compact cars now I was told. In fact, people walk in and walked off tells you something ... they have to improve on their package overall. The car is good and I can confirm on it but so??? 

 

Anyway looking forward to a Vitara 2016 Club lol ......

I think its a great looking car. Looks a bit like a Range Rover.

 

It also cannot be that small if a 1.9m person can sit in front and

 

behind. A very good choice.  [thumbsup]

 

:D

It is nice. To be frank, I've compared Vezel ... much faster, much spacious and much cheaper but is it the best choice now? Nope ....

 

I've never considered 2L SUVs coz not within my budget and no need for such a big capacity cars. Terios they no longer produce, not in SG at least. So I can only have Vitara and Vezel to choose from. I made a good choice and no regrets lol
