More so the New Vitara is targeted for the Eu markets. This is more than 4 m in length while the XA alpha will be in the sub 4 m segment.
The XA Alpha will have parts sharing across the iV platform.

True as such it would not come to India, but the XA Alpha which is India specific is a spin off of the New Vitara.

It's shorter than the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross but slightly taller and wider and has been designed to offer genuine off-road capability. Suzuki's Allgrip four-wheel-drive system will be available as an option.
Two engines will be available, one petrol and one diesel. Both are 1.6-litre units that put out 118bhp. Four-wheel drive is available on both.

Petrol buyers can choose from a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic gearbox, while those opting for the diesel get a six-speed manual.

Fuel efficiency has been a priority. Official figures are yet to be revealed but Suzuki says that CO2 emissions will be as low as 106g/km on the manual, two-wheel-drive diesel and will rise to 138g/km for the four-wheel-drive petrol with the automatic gearbox.
Suzuki is also following the trend of offering buyers a wide range of personalisation options.

Quote:
There will be a choice of 15 exterior colours including a number of two-tone combinations. Buyers will be able to personalise their cars by choosing from a variety of different colour surrounds for the bumpers, front grille, dashboard and clock.

This is not a Suzuki vehicle, as the camouflage normally used on Suzuki vehicles are of grey colour.

Not a Suzuki for sure. They don't have an offering of this size in Germany I think. I first thought it is probably a Touran, but I think Touran is smaller than this.

What a makeover? Just loved the design and I hope the same version will be introduced in India. Those alloys look very COOL.

Maruti's YBA Cuv for India is speculated to have design cues from the New Vitara.

Pre production of the Crossover draws positive review - in a nutshell, "A Practical new Suzuki Vitara is fun to drive and feels built to last".

Both Petrol and Diesel draws good review with Petrol having an edge of lower noise.

Engines:
The 1.6-litre petrol or 1.6-litre turbodiesel to choose from, both producing 118bhp. Suzuki’s four-wheel drive ALLGRIP system (the same as used by the S-Cross) is an option, while the petrol comes with a choice of five-speed manual and six-speed auto, and the diesel only with a six-speed auto.

Suzuki's New Vitara to go on sale in April 2015.
Prices announced for UK - ranges from £13,999 to £21,299.

Quote:
The range kicks off at £13,999 for the two-wheel drive, 118bhp 1.6-litre petrol-powered SZ4 which comes with seven airbags, 16-inch alloy wheels, DAB Radio with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control with speed limiter, auto air conditioning, front and rear electric windows and projector headlamps.
SZ-T starts at £15,499 and adds 17-inch silver painted alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, Smartphone link audio and navigation system, while SZ5 at £17,999 adds LED Projector headlights, 17-inch polished alloy wheels, suede seat fabric, keyless entry with start button, adaptive cruise control, Radar Brake Support and a panaoramic sunroof.

The 1.6 petrol can also be selected with Suzuki’s ALLGRIP four-wheel drive system. Available on just the SZ5, it comes at a £1,800 premium over the two-wheel drive 1.6 SZ5

Along with the 1.6 petrol, there’s also a 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel available on SZ-T (£16,999) and SZ5 (£19,499) models. And just like the petrol, the four-wheel drive SZ5 ALLGRIP costs £1,800 more than the 2WD 1.6 diesel

Safety equipment includes an 'RBS' system that can mitigate a low-speed crash by applying the brakes. All models have seven airbags, and the Vitara can even be specified with adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof and a smartphone connection.

The new Vitara, which is smaller than the outgoing Grand Vitara at a little over four metres long, features a 375-litre boot.

Even the S Cross retails from £13,999 !
I thought Vitara is a segment above S Cross.

Are we getting Vitara in India ? No, for the time being. I think Suzuki makes their moolah from India and pampers the guys in UK.

The Esztergom plant will be the only location where this Suzuki model is manufactured, and the cars will be exported to global markets.
