Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Vitara resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit.

Liability insurance covers things such as emergency aid, funeral expenses, bail bonds, medical services and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as vandalism, hitting a deer, falling objects and a broken windshield. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.
