2019 Suzuki Vitara Allgrip Review – The EXCLUSIVE one?
Time for a change. Because of the great competition in this segment, the search for another car has become longer than usual. After some driver rides in various species, the 2019 Suzuki Vitara was very positive. The competition was much more expensive with 4 wheel drive or not available on the models.

2019 Suzuki Vitara Allgrip Test Drive
Driving with the Vitara is certainly not disappointing, the handling is excellent. The suspension is on the solid side but not as bad as the previous car. There, passengers were launched when the well-known “Springboards” were passed in the road. The car behaves further neutral on the highway, is not searching or woolly, even at 180 km which I recently drove in Germany. The 4-wheel drive is also possible. In the case of a strong wind, there is no unstable behavior. Taking turns remains enjoyable despite the high carriage, no tilting bodywork. The car will be willing to follow the steering movements and direction. During winter sports and wet/Snowy roads, the 4-wheel drive is a godsend.
The interior looks good and takes care of. Some hard materials but also for other brands, even more expensive classes. The dashboard of the Vitara is clear, has regular clocks, tachometer and with a clear temperature gauge and not forgetting a display for reading average consumption, KM’s still to go on the tank contents etc.. The heating system and the air conditioning are excellent and certainly the to disarm of the windscreen goes very smoothly.
The chairs are fine, not too short or too soft, but that is, of course, personal and are well adjustable, incl. the seat heating which is standard in the Allgrip version. The handlebar is pleasantly adjustable with which a good sitting position is quickly found. The luggage compartment is large enough, neatly finished with a double bottom. That the belt is turned right, is correct. The rattling is very audible but the belt has to be tightened and it is over.
The noise level is remarkably low. The engine you hear little. If sound is invaded, it is the bands and that also depends on which asphalt is driven.
2019 Suzuki Vitara Allgrip Fuel Economy
Finally, the fuel consumption. This proves, itself tracked and processed in an overview N.L. to be 1 on 14.42. I always fill the tank after a different number of ridden km positions. Fill I do until the pump turns off so I get a correct image of the consumption. See also my usage monitor. The speed with which I move through the traffic is practically always the maximum speed or higher. Then the consumption is not a setback, especially not for a 4-wheel drive.
The 2019 Suzuki Vitara Allgrip fully meets my expectations. So far there have been no failures. Hopefully, we’ll keep it that way. I can go out of reliability.
