Suzuki Vitara Go 2023 Review

​Always known as a brand to offer exceptional value, Suzuki continue to look for the best ways in which to continue providing great cars for the very best price. This has led to the introduction of a limited edition new model in the Vitara line up. The Vitara Go might offer a lower price point but certainly doesn't sacrifice when it comes to spec. Read on as we fill you in on everything the Suzuki Vitara Go has to offer. 

Engine & Performance

​As with the existing Vitara line up, the Suzuki Vitara Go is equipped with a 1.4 Boosterjet Mild Hybrid engine which delivers 129bhp. 

Whilst the mild hybrid system can't drive the vehicle, it does help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions resulting in 53.2 miles per gallon (WLTP combined fuel economy) and 119g/km CO2 emissions. The system works by using a smal electric motor and battery to give a boost to the petrol engine during acceleration and other high-demand situations.



Sitting before the SZ-T in the Vitara line up, the Vitara Go becomes the entry level model however this doesn't mean Suzuki have scrimped when it comes to looks or spec.​

Exterior Styling

The exterior styling remains pretty much the same with just a few very subtle differences including a black front grille, roof rails & exterior door handles as opposed to the silver found on the SZ-T model & above.

The Go is fitted with 16" wheels & comes in a choice of 4 colours which includes white (non-metallic), Galactic Grey metallic, Cosmic Black Pearl metallic & Atlantis Turquoise Pearl metallic.

Interior Trim

Similar to the exterior, the inside of the Vitara remains largely the same as the rest of the line up with again some black trim replacements including the interior door panels and handles & A/C vents.


Spec & Tech

Our Summary

If you're looking for a great value, small yet spacious SUV which doesn't break the bank then the Vitara Go is definitely worth of consideration. Whilst it may not be the cheapest when compared to it's closest rivals, when taking everything into consideration, including fuel economy and running costs, along with everything you do (or don't in some cases) get as standard, the Vitara Go really does give them all a run for their money.

And with up to 7 years warranty with every new Suzuki car (see more here) and the long list of awards the Suzuki range has won, especially for reliability, there's no question about overall value for money when it comes to the cost of ownership.
