Suzuki's Vitara S has been voted the winner of the Ultralight category at the Tow Car Awards 2016. Suzuki introduced the 1.4-litre Boosterjet model in January in the U.K. which provides a more sporting and dynamic character to the Vitara lineup and it was this latest model that really impressed the judges.

Suzuki's 1.4-litre Boosterjet turbocharged engine helps give more mid-range pull than you get from most petrols
The car is powered by a turbocharged petrol engine which performs well, pulling the trailer from 50-100km/h in 14.5 seconds. Turbocharging helps give more mid-range pull than you get from most petrols, making for an engine that's surprisingly well-suited to towing lightweight trailers and micro-caravans.

The Vitara is rated one of Europe's safest cars according to independent crash testing results from Euro NCAP, and received the maximum five-star rating. Vitara was also the first compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) to earn five stars in the more rigorous 2015 Euro NCAP testing programme which reinforces its exemplary safety.

Dale Wyatt, Sales and Marketing Director, Suzuki GB PLC added, "This is another fantastic accolade for us at Suzuki. Our compact and lightweight SUV is proving to be really popular on the roads now with around 11,000 sold since its launch last year."
