Suzuki Vitara 2015 Interior – Thanks to its body, the Suzuki Vitara 2015 Interior offers plenty of headroom front and rear, while legroom (even in the back) should be fine for all but the tallest passengers. Reviews report the car has a small glovebox, but large door pockets.

A 375-litre boot means the Vitara’s capacity falls in-between the Nissan Juke’s 352-litre boot and the capacious 416-litre load bay offered in the Skoda Yeti. Added practicality comes in the form of underfloor storage, while no load lip means sliding heavy items in should be easy. Unlike in the Grand Vitara, the new model’s boot lid hinges from the roof (not the C-pillar) making the load bay easier to access.

The Allgrip four-wheel drive system may be optional, but it’s quite sophisticated. It offers four presets – Auto, Sport, Snow and Lock. Auto is designed for cruising, while Sport sends more power to the back wheels for prowess in the corners, Snow is (of course) best suited to winter roads, while Lock sends an equal amount of power to each wheel to give the car a sporting chance of dragging itself out of even the stickiest of predicaments.
Suzukis are known more for durability than a plush finish, and the Vitara isn’t likely to change that. Slide into the driver’s seat – which is high-set and well-suited to anyone who’s not as dexterous as they used to be – and the first thing you notice is the broad sweep of grainy-looking, hard plastic across the top of the dash. At least small touches such as padding on the front armrests and the gloss-black surround to those fitted with nav mean it avoids feeling properly budget in higher-spec trims.
Otherwise, the air-con controls are straightforward, the dials are easy to read and the driving position is good, even if some drivers will wish for a bit more lateral support.
It’s easy to access the main infotainment functions on the touch-screen that’s likely to be standard on higher trims levels, too, although the screen can be slow to respond and the touch-sensitive buttons for the volume and home screen are really fiddly and unresponsive.
Space is quite plentiful. An average-sized adult can sit behind a tall driver without feeling hemmed-in, and the airy-feeling cabin feels bigger than a Renault Captur’s, being roughly on a par with the Kia Soul for passenger space.
Boot space is better than the Kia’s though; the Suzuki’s 375-litre boot is broad, and can be fitted with a variable-height boot floor, while the seats fold easily to leave a smooth if slightly sloped loadbay
