Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPH), is launching the new Vitara AllGrip on Friday, May 28, 2021, at 6 pm, via the Suzuki Auto Philippines Facebook page. Back in a modernized yet classic silhouette, Suzuki’s beloved sub-compact SUV offers unprecedented value not found across other competitors in the market.
“Ever since the new look of Vitara was launched in the Philippine market, we have seen enormous support for the model. One of the iconic models of the brand, this newest 4x4 vehicle provides individuality, stylish looks, and added confidence on the road. This car will definitely encourage people to drive and bring more fun into their lives,” said Suzuki Philippines Vice President and General Manager for Automobile Division, Mr. Keiichi Suzuki.
The new Vitara AllGrip is an update to a Suzuki classic that was first launched in 1988. It integrates new concepts and today’s advanced technologies with Suzuki’s SUV lineage. Manufactured in Suzuki Hungary, the new Vitara is equipped with ALLGRIP technology, an infotainment system with a Clinometer function, and a range of personalization options that will give each Vitara AllGrip a unique personality.
The new Vitara AllGrip has bold and sporty styling. Keeping with Vitara’s authentic design, it retains its clamshell bonnet in the front, while the rear is stout and stable with trapezoidal lines toward the ground and a minimum ground clearance of 185mm. From the side, it has smooth rooflines for better aerodynamics and a kicked-up character line that hints at the flared fenders. Some upgrades to the Vitara’s body include front and rear skid plates, a front lower bumper garnish, chrome and black grained accents on the body’s side, and an improved rear edge spoiler. This model also comes with energy-saving LED headlamps for low-beam, uniquely designed DRLs, and a vertical chrome grille for a more modernized look suitable for the current times.
The New Vitara features a refined interior with advanced features and quality craftsmanship sure to deliver comfort and driving satisfaction, on and off the road. Its instrument panel features a muscular console that includes a round clock and a round air outlet that give the panel a more youthful design. The U-shape of the shift knob supports the rugged look of most SUVs.
The new Vitara AllGrip is equipped with the iconic panoramic sunroof consisting of two glass panels that slide to open. Following the theme of Suzuki’s subcompact SUVs, it comes with spacious luggage space of 375 liters and rear seats that can fold to accommodate bigger items.
Accompanying its promise of elevated comfort and functionality, the Vitara AllGrip is equipped with a 10” infotainment system with smartphone linkage function. It’s equipped with a clinometer that tells the driver the vehicle’s position in terms of pitch and roll angles, an automatic wiper, a light system and dimming rearview mirrors, rear camera and parking sensors, and a keyless Push-Start System.
SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE
Under the hood of the new Vitara AllGrip is a 1.6-liter engine that is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with manual mode and paddle shift.

Safety features include six (6) SRS airbags, hill descent and hill hold control, and brake assist function. It is also equipped with Electronic Stability Program (ESP) which detects over and understeering to help the driver maintain directional control.
