Beyond that, some good aero will help on a car the size and shape of a Vitara... as well as better lubricants. Small Suzuki 4x4s are typically crap on gas given the engine size, because the drivetrains are so heavy duty.
Aero mods would probably do be the most benefit, I would love to see what is available for an SUV. Premium lubricants will also go a long way, beyond that there isn't a whole lot left to do. Will certainly be looking for ways to push it further.
