Suzuki leads the way in 4x4 non-hybrid CO2 emissions

Suzuki's new Vitara SUV will go on sale next month and is set to boast the lowest non-hybrid 4x4 CO2 emissions on the market.

The new five-door compact SUV will be available with the choice of a 1.6-litre petrol unit and a 1.6-litre diesel engine, both producing 119bhp.

The top-of-the-range SZ5 ALLGRIP diesel model will emit just 111g/km of CO2 and is set to achieve an estimated combined fuel consumption of 67.2mpg.

Suzuki's ALLGRIP system also enables four-wheel-drive, petrol-powered SUVs to share similarly competitive CO2 figures, emitting just 130g/km with a five-speed manual gearbox and 131g/km with an optional six-speed automatic.

The entry-level SZ4 model will feature seven airbags, 16-inch alloy wheels, DAB radio with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, auto air conditioning, front and rear electric windows and projector headlamps as standard.

Meanwhile, the mid-range SZ-T adds 17-inch silver painted alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, plus a Smartphone link audio and navigation system. Move up to the range-topping SZ5 and customers receive LED projector headlights, 17-inch polished alloy wheels, suede seat fabric, keyless entry with start button, adaptive cruise control, radar brake support and a panoramic sunroof.
