FOR this fourth-gen­er­a­tion Vi­tara, Suzuki turned what had been up to this point a large and sturdy off-road-bi­ased SUV into a small crossover to com­pete with the likes of the Nis­san Juke.

Aside from a slightly cramped boot and some flimsy in­te­rior plas­tics, the re­sult is a re­sound­ing suc­cess. That’s par­tic­u­larly the case if you go for one of the lively petrol en­gines, which com­ple­ment the Vi­tara’s re­spon­sive han­dling.

Price range: £14,999-£24,899 Our pick: 1.6 SZ-T (£16,999) En­gine: 1.6-litre 4cyl petrol, 118bhp Trans­mis­sion: 5-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 112mph Econ­omy: 52.3mpg CO2: 123g/km
