We could start with something humdrum and objective about the Suzuki Vitara, such as the fact that it’s a compact, five-seat SUV that’s designed to be affordable, practical and easy to live with. And you know what? It is all of those things. But what it’s not is a boring box on wheels; we actually think it’s a cracking little runabout.

It's a very different car to the original Vitara, which was both smaller and more rugged; the current model is instead pitched as a rival to the likes of the Seat AronaRenault Captur and Citroën C3 Aircross. These models are some of the most popular in the UK, offering SUV style for hatchback prices.
