Hi from Denmark! Just got my Vitara today *yay me*
It's an Active allgrip (MT) in supreme white. Not a lot of stuff on it, got the roof racks and tow...hook...thing. Which I just realised I have no idea what's called in english! Anywho, drives like a dream and I was a fair bit suprised the difference it made when switching to "sport" mode.

Looking forward to try it out over the next few years, especially adaptive cruise control as I have a lot of highway miles daily.

Vitara arrived 20160311

Next week we are going on a road trip with 1.5 ton caravan so that should be interresting.
Waited 6 months for this beauty.

Congratulations Hadus, a six month wait must have been torture. I there was me thinking that a two to three week wait was a bit long.
It's a tow bar - I'm sure your English is considerably better than our Danish, so don't worry about any little mistakes.

Congratulations on your new Vitara, look forward to hearing your views on both the vitara and it's towing ability plus of course pictures from Denmark

Is it law to run winter tyres there, I have a Danish customer visiting this week, he always has winter tyres on his vehicles but not sure if they are a legal requirement or just by choice?

Thanks for the welcomes Smile

@Karl - Winter tyres are not required in denmark. I think most of us use them, but they are not required by law.

A 1 1/2 ton caravan behind a Vitara !!! Seems to be stretching the limits, or is the road trip including a larger tow car ? Happy times anyway.

Diesel is 1500kg max weight braked but only 1200kg for the petrol engine.
600kg and 400kg respectively if unbraked.

UK numbers but I guess the Denmark is the same?

Yep, same numbers in DK. I'm guessing it will do just fine... though I'm not really an experienced caravan driver, so I wouldn't know if it does anything out of the ordinary.
Looking for some winter caravaning too, hence the allgrip model. Should do for some good fun.
