History in Brief:

As a compact SUV, the Vitara was first introduced globally in 1988 with the name tag Suzuki Escudo. The fourth generation of the sports utility vehicle which is presently in the market was unveiled in 2014 in the Paris Motor Show. Tragically, it could not see roads in country of its origin (Japan) till October 2015.

And it took another whole year for the Vitara to make its way to Pakistan in December 2016. Since then it has been revving up the hearts of the adventure enthusiasts with its bold design and vigorous performance. As claimed by the manufacturer, the latest model is “The Game Changer” Vitara.

Is It the Best Suzuki in Pakistan?

The Vitara happens to be the most expensive Suzuki in Pakistan. But is it also the best one? What segment does it cater to? How does it face, beat and defeat the rival brands in the market? Eying C-HR from Toyota, X1 from BMW, and HR-V from Honda for victory and dominance, the Vitara is a compact SUV. Currently in its fourth generation, the sports utility vehicle was launched in 1988. Its more powerful sibling, the Suzuki Kizashi, was launched a decade later as a mid-size car.And it fared equally well in the international market.

While Mehran has been ruling the roads and people’s hearts for decades as the most economical Japanese car in Pakistan, the Vitara is contending for the title of the best Suzuki in the country. The auto industry critics are also arguing in favour of it as the best SUV especially in terms of affordability. But still it doesn’t ask for any big compromises for techs and performance. To ascertain the claims that the Vitara is the best Suzuki in the country, you need to critically evaluate the specs and stature of the Vitara against that of its siblings.
