The 2024 Suzuki Vitara has been updated with new technology and safety features, along with some exterior changes.

The production of the Vitara continues at the Suzuki Magyar plant in Hungary. Details about the availability of these updates in global markets, including the exact release date, are yet to be confirmed.

Suzuki Australia has been approached for information on the vehicle's local launch schedule.

Enhancements to the Vitara include an updated autonomous emergency braking system named Dual Sensor Brake Support II.

This system has a wider detection range, capable of identifying vehicles, motorcycles, and pedestrians in front of or at an angle to the vehicle.

Additional updates feature a driver monitoring system that uses a camera on the dashboard, lane-keeping assist, and an improved adaptive cruise control. The cruise control combines millimeter-wave radar with a monocular camera and is connected to a traffic sign recognition system.

The interior of the Vitara now boasts a new 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

For the European market, the vehicle also offers Suzuki Connect, which allows for remote vehicle monitoring via a smartphone app.

On the exterior, updates include a redesigned grille with chrome details that align with the headlights and frame the Suzuki logo.

Modifications to the front bumper and the introduction of new color schemes, including a two-tone option and a new single-tone finish, are also part of the facelift.

While images of the rear updates are not provided, changes typical of facelifts such as new tail light designs and bumper modifications are anticipated.

The powertrain options for Europe include a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a 48V mild-hybrid system and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid option.

These come with varied outputs and are available in front- or all-wheel drive. Suzuki Australia has indicated that the "strong hybrid" version is expected to be available by the end of 2024.

Currently, in Australia, the Vitara is available with either a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter engine or a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, both with automatic transmission options.

The sales of Vitara in Australia saw a decline in the previous year, and it competes in the same market segment as the S-Cross, which has experienced a sales increase.

The Vitara, launched in 2015 and introduced in Australia that same year, is nearing its tenth year of production, with no announcements made regarding the debut of a new generation.

The S-Cross, produced at the same factory in Hungary, received a significant update in 2021 that included new styling and additional safety features but retained the same base structure.
