Where does Suzuki source the engine for the new Vitara?

Where does Suzuki source the 1.6 DDIS engine for the new Vitara and are there any known issues with this engine? I had the third generation Suzuki Vitara with the 1.9 diesel engine before: nice car but the engine was a disaster!

Many thanks,

John Fleming

Hi John,

Suzuki buys that 1.6 diesel engine in from Fiat, but before you go running for the hills, as far as we are aware there are no major issues with it.

Have you read our review of the new Suzuki Vitara?
