The Suzuki Vitara adds another award to its portfolio, winning Best Small Crossover at the CarGurus UK 2019 Best Used Car Awards.
For anyone who has sat behind the wheel of the Suzuki Vitara, it comes as no surprise to hear it’s been awarded another Best Small Crossover award. It perfectly combines stylish design, comfort and driver convenience, and dynamic driving, all while still staying affordable. But this award adds a noteworthy feather to the Vitara’s cap. Instead of focusing on the new car, the CarGurus 2019 Best Used Car Awards focuses on the great value for money and enjoyable ownership the used Vitara offers to drivers.
The award bases its selection and decision on the following criteria:
- Car models that are at least two years old
- Availability and search interest on CarGurus UK
- Retention data
A panel of judges then weight up these factors, as well as the pros and cons of each shortlisted vehicle to decide on a winner for each category. Commenting on the Vitara’s in the Small Crossover category, CarGurus UK Editor, Chris Knapman, stated:
“The Suzuki Vitara took the victory in the best used small crossover class due to its appealing blend of practicality, comfort, equipment, and a wide range of powertrain options that makes it possible for used car buyers to choose between two and four-wheel drive regardless of whether they want a petrol or diesel engine. Our judges also noted that CarGurus data shows the Vitara holds onto its value better than many other small crossovers, too.”
New Suzuki Vitara also award-winning
Outside of the 2019 Best Used Car Awards, the Suzuki Vitara has also been recognised in its new-car guise as being the best small crossover on the market. It was awarded the Small Crossover of the Year at the 2019 Honest Jon Car of the Year Awards. This was a particularly important award as it was decided on not by journalists or a panel of experts, but by real owners who are driving the Vitara day-in, day-out.
