There are a lot of possiblities. Mass air flow sensor, o2 sensor. So this was hooked up to an OBD2 scanner and no codes came up? A good mechanic should be able to diagnose this problem in person. It is very hard to do over the internet but I will do my best to give you the most probable culprits. If you have a moment to accept and rate my solution on the original problem it would be greatly appreciated.

This will need to be put on a scanner to see what sensor has flagged up.. The car will not be as efficient with this light on so get it checked asap.
Use a good local garage...listen to what they say. If it doesnt make sense, write it down and come back here with description.

Who makes the diesel engine in the suzuki grand vitara

The 1.9-litre diesel engine in the latest version is sourced from Renault and delivers a hefty 221 ft lbs of torque for reassuring operation both on and off road. This power makes the Grand Vitara a far more versatile proposition, with even enough power to pull a small caravan if required.

Engine management light on ,suzuki grand vitara 2 litre turbo diesel,engine feels slugish

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer has noted and curb the need for speculation. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Take your rig.. drive it to a gas station.. fill the tank up with gas.. also fill 2 jugs of gasoline at the same time... put the jugs in the back of it.. now drive as far as you can until the rig runs out of gas.. then, take the two jugs of gas.. pour it all over the rig, inside and out.. now light it a-blaze, then walk to your nearest car dealer and buy a new car..
