Used Suzuki Vitara (1988 - 2000) Review

Vitara is best viewed as a road car rather than an off-road workhorse. The five-door estates are fairly refined, especially V6 versions.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

2 out of 5

Vitara is best viewed as a road car rather than an off-road workhorse. The five-door estates are fairly refined, especially V6 versions. Three-door cars are often 'loaded' with extras to mark them out as urban fashion statements.

 Everything! It's a 4x4, it has 4 seats, it's a convertible, it's cheap to run and I only need to clean it once a year!

 Other cars may go faster but this one goes anywhere. It's just a solid, reliable workhorse.
