Boustead Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Suzuki automotive in Brunei Darussalam, unveiled the new Hikarii body kits and rims for the new Suzuki Vitara at the Suzuki showroom in Gadong yesterday, according to a press release by Boustead Sdn Bhd.

Exclusively in Brunei, Hikarii was first introduced in 2017 with Swift as the first model in the Suzuki’s lineage and the impact on the market was extremely overwhelming. The design of the Hikarii body kits and rims are based on a foundation of three elements – sporty, stylish and bold.

The foundation is shared across other models with Suzuki Ignis took over the baton for the second run of the Hikarii in the same year. The new Vitara follows suit as the third Suzuki model to be placed under the Hikarii’s wing.

Inspired by the sleek and dynamic design of the Hikarii for Suzuki Swift, the new Vitara Hikarii stands out from its predecessors, cementing its position as one of the most elegant compact SUVs in Brunei.

The Hikarii’s DNA is being incorporated into the Front Bumper Spoiler, Side Skirt, Rear Bumper Spoiler, Rear Upper Spoiler and the 18″ Alloy Wheels of the new Vitara, making it look bolder and stylish than ever.

The new Vitara is the fourth generation which has undergone an expressive and impressive facelift early this year. It comprises three variants – GL 2WD, GLX 2WD and GLX 4WD, powered by the 1.6-litre petrol engine.

The upgrade includes the exterior and interior design, rear LED lights, 10.1-inch touchscreen Android Player with a Bluetooth enabling or USB connected mobile phone connection.

Technical and safety technology has been upgraded in the 2019 model as it is equipped with the Total Effective Controlled Technology (TECT) which helps in absorbing and dispersing the energy in the event of collision, Hill Hold and Hill Descent Control as well as Rear View Camera with Parking Sensors.

With the elements from the Hikarii body kits and rims, the new Vitara offers a competitive price among other compact SUVs in the same segment.

In addition, new Vitara customers can expect an outstanding Aftersales Service for the best and genuine Suzuki experience at a price from as low as BND51 only.
