The Suzuki Vitara picked up two highly coveted awards at this year’s prestigious Honest John Awards, walking away with not only the award for Most Popular Crossover, but also the overall Car of the Year title.
In a hotly contested category, the Suzuki Vitara was head-and-shoulders above any other model on the site.
The Honest John Awards uniquely recognise the cars that have proved most popular with HonestJohn.co.uk over the past 12 months, with the model that has chimed most with readers walking away with the overall Car of the Year prize. The Vitara, which was launched in 2015, proved an instant hit and quickly established itself as the most popular car on the site during 2015 and 2016.
Questions posed by readers demonstrated that this is a carthat’s near the top of many car buyers’ lists, while feedback from owners showed that it’s a car that’s easy to live with.
Daniel Harrison, editor of HonestJohn.co.uk said 'Our readers tell us that they want cars that are practical, well built and honest when it comes to fuel consumption. The Vitara offers all of that with a dash of style and sense of occasion. It’s no surprise that it’s been such a hit on the site. The addition of the state-of-the-art BoosterJet petrol late last year was the icing on the cake and another reason for us to recommend what is a great all-rounder.”
