TURIN – Suzuki’s all-new Vitara CUV is set to bow at the Paris auto show in early October.

The ’15 model grows some in size and adds a little styling panache to better take on segment entries from Jeep, Fiat, Ford, Nissan and Opel.

Sources say a high degree of aluminum is to be used for the vehicle’s new platform and that the Vitara will be built alongside the SX-4 in Hungary.

The new model will continue to be offered with either front- or all-wheel drive.
