Toyota dealerships in Kenya are now selling Suzuki models along with their own products, taking the Suzuki-Toyota partnership to the next level in the countries where the action is possible. Suzuki and Toyota entered a joint venture where the brands will share architecture and product components to cut on the total cost of car development. The joint operations in India will focus on sharing platform between Baleno and an unnamed hatchback from Toyota. In Kenya, the product sharing seems like a smaller effect as Suzuki by Toyota Kenya counter in their dealership is displaying Jimny, Gypsy, Ciaz, Vitara (the bigger one) and even Alto for the buyers.

The pricing for Kenya is quite high in comparison to the Indian pricing for almost all the products, most probably due to the high amount of their local taxation. The rebadging plan seems effective for brands like India where buyers will not consider watching the merger of two indirect rivals. Here, the vast footprint of Maruti Suzuki will benefit Toyota cars only while a number of buyers choosing a Suzuki car by visiting the nearest Toyota dealership will be next to zero. As the majority of Maruti Suzuki models sold here are below INR 10 lakh, the trend is opposite for Toyota as their majority of models sold fall in the price bracket of INR 15-30 lakh.

Even the Ciaz-rivalling Toyota Yaris has failed to impress buyers with sales figure less than 500 units in every month. Dubai-based firm CMC was earlier the only distributor for Suzuki cars in Kenya and now, the Toyota partnership may end their exclusive status regarding the brand in the country. The most affordable model from Suzuki, Alto 800, costs approx INR 6.10 lakh (direct conversion into the Indian currency) in Kenya. The retail lineup consists of the much-debated Jimny and Vitara GL in their market.

2019 Suzuki Vitara SUV Unveiled: Japanese automaker Suzuki had been working on the mid-life update of the Vitara SUV for quite some time now. This is not the compact SUV Vitara Brezza that comes to India, but the larger sibling that is a part of the international lineup of the company. The Vitara is a 4.2 meter SUV that has a great exterior, which makes it instantly recognizable. It combines the traditional image of the Suzuki SUV and the modern technology and accents. There are some major upgrades made to the exterior and the interior on the 2019 model of the Suzuki Vitara.

On the outside, the 2019 Suzuki Vitara gets a new front grille and there are some minor tweaks to the bumper as well. There is a new lower air-intake, and an included radar sensor, which is used when the autonomous emergency braking and the adaptive cruise control are in effect. There are faux brushed-aluminium bits on the front bumper near the daytime running lights. Also new are the alloy wheels, which feature an all-new design. The interior is expected to get some upgrades as well. The 2019 Suzuki Vitara is expected to come with a new seat upholstery and an updated infotainment system.

The Vitara’s current generation was spied in India some time ago. The SUV was equipped with a 1.6-liter diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 118 hp. The SUV which was spied comes with a six-speed manual gearbox. While there is no confirmation on the launch of the Vitara SUV in India, if it is launched, it will provide a healthy competition to the Hyundai Creta, which is dominating the market in the segment. The previous generation of the Vitara was launched in India under the name of Grand Vitara, but the high price of the SUV along with the market position served as factors of its limited success.

Maruti Suzuki is yet to confirm the news officially but, the recently spied images for Vitara clear that Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier will not be the only contenders of this segment. The car that was spotted came without any camouflage, leaving fans stunned to see the extended profile and Brezza-like stance.

The car comes with Range Rover inspired bonnet angle, Vitara specific headlight design, extended legroom and more than usual room for luggage. When all this comes paired to the attractive diamond cut wheels, Vitara proves itself as an impressive SUV. One report claims that these test mules are here for international variant testing only.

They believe that supplier change and part testing could be the reason behind the repetitive visuals of Suzuki Vitara in India. Maruti is currently using S-Cross as a rival to other SUVs like Duster and Creta in India.

Being a crossover, S-Cross commands a different segment of buyers who prefer space but have no strict SUV liking. If launched in India, Vitara could get the new 1.5L petrol and 1.5L diesel engine. Using the more powerful DDiS 200 tune may not feel sufficient for a car of this size and status.

Maruti Suzuki is almost ready to launch the new Ciaz in India. The flagship sedan will feature a new face, LED headlights and all new grill. Some reports even hint that they will introduce the new 1.5L petrol engine with Ciaz in August.

Suzuki Vitara is also ready for a facelift internationally, again pointing in the opposite direction of an immediate launch that most fans expect from Maruti Suzuki. Internationally, the SUV is available with 1.6L petrol and 1.4L Boosterjet engine. The latter is a more powerful turbocharged motor with 140HP of maximum power and 230Nm of torque. Vitara could feature both a manual and automatic gearbox option.
