In Line With The Vitara S that’s been released in Europe the Suzuki Turbo Vitara will switch the current top-spec Vitara RTX when they get it here the coming year. Obtainable in both 2WD and AWD variants, Suzuki is keeping quiet on prices and final specs until nearer to the launch.

In Europe, the Vitara S comes outfitted with 17-inch Gloss black alloy wheels, unique grille design, satin silver door mirrors, Brought Headlamps with red-colored projector covers, rear upper spoiler and black side body mouldings. Within it will get red-colored interior contrast stitching, red-colored accents for ac vent and instruments and aluminium alloy pedals. It’s likely the Turbo Vitara is going to be similarly outfitted. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is going to be suited to every Vitara from The month of january 2016.

Suzuki Australia has confirmed it’ll support the basic level RT-S using the current 1.6litre engine at its competitive $22,990 Drive Away cost point.

Andrew Moore, Suzuki’s Gm of Automobiles stated: “it’s a thrilling here we are at Suzuki, using the turbo engine model set to bolster what’s already a effective model in Vitara, for that brand.”

“Consistent with the outstanding value proposition Vitara already signifies, the Vitara Turbo will strengthen this even more once we goal to allow clients to walk into our premium and many sporty Vitara for less”

The Turbo Vitara might find the debut around australia of Suzuki’s new BOOSTERJET technology engine which for Vitara is really a 1.4-litre direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder supplying a grunty 220Nm of torque from 1500-4000rpm. Suzuki stated it’s had the ability to accomplish this early, high-torque delivery using a small displacement, high torque turbocharger.

“By manipulating the wastegate valve, which shuts to produce greater boost pressure throughout heavy load operation and stays open throughout normal driving, the machine reduces moving loss, thus achieving high amounts of both energy and fuel-efficiency,” Suzuki stated inside a statement.

“Throughout development, Suzuki’s engineers virtually removed the normal delay in turbo energy delivery or ‘lag’ by setting up the specifically developed compact turbo charger attached straight to the cylinder mind in addition to integrating the exhaust manifold in to the cylinder mind casting. This design guarantees optimum gas flow with minimal warmth loss right through to the turbo unit. The turbocharger includes a boost pressure of just one.1 Bar.”

The Turbo Vitara in AWD guise will run Suzuki’s ALLGRIP system that provides four driver-selectable modes: Auto, Sport, Snow and Lock. Auto: The car mode prioritises gas mileage in typical driving conditions and uses two-wheel drive automatically. It switches to any or all-wheel drive whether it picks up wheel spin. Sport: The game mode “makes maximal use” of-wheel drive in compliance with accelerator inputs. At low and mid-range engine speeds, the machine alters the accelerator/torque qualities to optimise engine response and cornering performance. Snow: The snow mode is optimal for snowy, unpaved, along with other slippery surfaces. The machine uses all-wheel drive automatically. It optimises all-wheel drive control in compliance with steering and accelerator inputs to advertise traction and stability on low friction surfaces. Lock: The lock mode is perfect for extricating the vehicle from snow, dirt, or sand. A restricted-slip differential is equipped which will help brake any sliding wheel and transfer torque towards the gripping wheels.

The Vitara Turbo AWD also provides 4WD Control which on conventional full-time 4WD automobiles, feedback control allocates torque towards the rear wheels after discovering front wheel drive slippage.

On Vitara, and also gives feedback manage it also provides “feed forward control that anticipates slippage according to road surface, throttle opening position, steering position along with other factors”. The Suzuki Turbo Vitara offers 185mm of ground clearance.

Hill Descent Control: This technique is equipped as standard on AWD models. Once the vehicle is travelling lower a high incline and engine stopping isn’t sufficient to slow the automobile, Hill Descent Control will instantly use the brakes to limit vehicle speed, thus permitting the motive force to keep full control and focus on steering the vehicle securely.

We’ll have prices and Australian specifications in 2012. Stay updated.
