Welcome to the forum. We would need to know if which weatherstripping you’re looking for - windows? Tailgate? Also whether you’re driving the 3 door (and if its the soft or hard top) or 5 door Vitara, as the sizes of the weather stripping will be different.
BUT, I will warn you - the cost of the factory weatherstripping will be ridiculously expensive. Depending on which part you are looking for, it may be possible for you to get aftermarket weatherstripping at, for example, an auto glass place near you, that would be using aftermarket material.
But give more info, and we can try to find the part number.

OP states 5DR in his post. Megazip has the OEM rubber available, but as Bex noted it is pricey... VERY pricey.
I have had good results by using a strip of thin vacuum line glued & inserted in the 'groove' of the OEM weatherstrip. It causes the weatherstrip to apply more pressure on the sealing surface of the door frame. Basically giving less 'squish' to weatherstrip that over the years has lost some of its form from age & use.
1) Clean the groove with brake/parts cleaner on a rag. Don't spray a ton of it since too much might cause the rubber more damage.
2) Using headliner spray adhesive & a thin brush, gently pull open the groove & apply a thin coat of adhesive... just in the groove not on the sealing surface.
3) "Tuck' the thin rubber vacuum line into the groove all the way around the stripping & leave the door open long enough for the glue to set up.
As long as the OEM stripping isn't damaged/torn or already crumbling beyond repair, this should help it apply enough pressure to the doorjam to keep water out... at least, I have have success in doing so, & it cost... well... a LOT less than new seals!!
I've also had good luck using silicone spray (lube type) around the seal & doorjam, which repels water & helps to seal the surface. (Also helps to keep seals from freezing in the winter, for those in the 'brrrrr it's too cold' areas.
Hth.

Oops, looks like I have to go back to reading class....lol.
If you want the part number, perhaps this link might help, under interior trim.
