The Vitara model range expanded in 1991 with the advent of the longer-wheelbase four-door five-seat wagons in JX and JLX get-up, as well as the brief appearance of a base two-seat JU hard and soft-top.

The wagon also offered more luggage space and an improved 71kW fuel-injected 1.6-litre 16-valve engine, as well as a four-speed auto option.

At the same time the short-wheelbase (SWB) models received a facelift, minor trim changes, improved ergonomics and small mechanical refinements.

Value-added special editions included 1992’s black short-wheelbase-only Mikado.
