Raise the Performance of Your Suzuki Vitara Boosterjet With a K&N Air Filter

K&N Replacement Air Filter for 2015-2017 Suzuki Vitara

A K&N replacement air filter is designed to increase power and improve acceleration

The current model Suzuki Vitara has earned praise from the motoring media, including the querulous bunch from Top Gear, who stated that the Vitara was “small, light, and surprisingly fun to drive. Its keen little engine goes hand-in-hand with a chassis that’s equally enjoyable; body control is good and the Vitara’s responses are all very natural.” The Vitara has also been named Best Small SUV Less Than £15,000 by What Car?

The 2015 – 2017 Suzuki Vitara is available with a state-of-the-art DOHC 1.4L direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The Suzuki Vitara S was the first model that utilizes the Boosterjet technology petrol engine, which in Vitara is a 140 PS 1.4L Direct Injection turbocharged unit (DITC).

This new engine offers 220 Nm of torque available from just 1500 rpm through to 4000rpm. A unique turbocharger with a 1.1 bar boost pressure is fastened directly to the cylinder head, and also incorporates the exhaust manifold in the cylinder head casting, in order to reduce turbo lag.

If you’re interested in increasing the horsepower and torque of a turbocharged engine, the key is to deliver more air to the intake. The electronics will feed fuel into the cylinder to match the detected temperature and volume of the intake flow. The greater volume of cooler air that can be fed into the cylinder will result in a greater volume of fuel being injected, delivering the sought-after increase in power.

That’s why K&N has developed the 33-3069 replacement air filter for the Suzuki Vitara. The K&N filter provides an increase of up to 50% more airflow to the engine. And by increasing the flow of air, the result can be better throttle response and improved torque at all points of the operating range of your 1.4L turbocharged petrol engine.

The reason K&N air filters can provide increased airflow is that they’re manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media reinforced by a powdercoated metal screen. This type of construction not only allows for increased airflow but at the same time offers excellent filtration characteristics to ensure long engine life.

Often OEM and less-expensive filters are made from more restrictive paper. While paper is an efficient filter, it clogs easily, limiting airflow. K&N filters deliver both performance and protection, as each design is verified through K&N’s in-house air filter filtration efficiency testing. Each and every filter is tested to ISO 5011 protocols, which ensures that K&N filters provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection.
