2019 Suzuki Vitara Turbo AllGrip review

Suzuki was well ahead of the pack when it launched the original Vitara in 1988, being one of the first offerings in the compact-SUV segment. The current-generation model was again one of the first models to compete in the now burgeoning segment, though it quickly gained a host of rivals as the market moved towards the high-riding hatchbacks.
