According to latest car news from Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPI), the fourth-generation Suzuki Vitara 2018 will officially hit our shores in November with new look and perhaps, new engine options.
If the current Grand Vitara model uses a body-on-frame construction, its successor Vitara 2018 will possess a unibody one – a specific characteristic of a crossover.
As for design, the exterior adequately reflects what fans want to see in the new Vitara. Point by point, the front now gets a swooping front end flanked by bold headlamps, an iconic front bumper and sedated two-bar chrome grille.
