SUZUKI has dumped it’s diesel Vitara offering amid news it will introduce the Vitara Series II to the Australian market in the first quarter of 2019, bringing with it new two-tone colour options and substantial improvements in technology.
While full specifications and pricing are yet to be confirmed, we do know the model range will include the Vitara, Vitara Turbo and Vitara Turbo ALLGRIP, and that the changes mean the new model will not have a diesel variant, with the RT-X diesel deleted from the range.
“The Vitara RT-X Diesel has sold in the Australian market for a number of years,” Suzuki Australia GM – Automobile, Michael Pachota said.
“But as consumers continue to make greener living decisions we’ve listened to the voices of our customers and made an informed decision to discontinue the Vitara RT-X moving forward,” he added.
“The Vitara that Australian’s know and love only gets better. Aesthetically, Vitara Series II is characterised by bold new styling beaming with strength and energy, a choice of new colours plus improved technology. The all-new Vitara is sure to impress.”
