Thought I'd share a recent online review of the new facelift Vitara SZ5 from the local newspaper here in Bradford

Was tested on hilly roads here during the recent snowy weather we had.

Not sure if the summer tyres were changed to winter ones, but the alloy wheels look different to the ones I'm expecting to get.

All in all quite a good and favourable review Smile

Hope you enjoy it.

The tyres are standard Continental summer tyres.

I didn't think the Vitara used the viscous coupling for the AWD. ???

According to this the viscous coupling is only used in the All Grip Auto range, which is the Ignis and Swift. The All Grip Select used in the Vitara is an ' electronically controlled four-wheel-drive system with selectable driving mode".

Does this report indicate the the All Grip for the Vitara 2019 is downgraded from Select to Auto?

No one is just your typical journalist guessing rather than researching what he is writing about.......even Autocar spent several months saying the new Jimmy was front wheel drive

The brochure shows the same select control on the 2019 as the 2015. Who believes anything a journo says anyway, they simply seem to repeat the opinion of others. Remember how they all jumped on the hard plastics, forgetting that there are many other manufacturers with the same stuff.

So: a motoring journo who doesn't know his 4r5e from his elbow. Or Suzuki marketing gave him the wrong press pack?
