Suzuki Grand Vitara Review

Suzuki Grand Vitara Review

Suzuki is a well-known car manufacturer worldwide and the vehicles offered by them are known to deliver class and performance. Suzuki Grand Vitara is no exception to this family. The Suzuki Vitara is a high quality vehicle which has created a niche for itself in the sports market. The Suzuki Grand Vitara is a small SUV which proffers to supply the perfect attributes for off-road capability and the on-road comfort to its owners coupled with day-in and day-out livability. This helps the car in bridging the gap for daily office commuters to the more weekend adventurer types.

The car was launched in 2006 where the first series boasted of truck-like chassis, V6 power and low-range gearing. All the Vitara variants come with a seating for five passengers and a variety of standard features. The Suzuki Grand Vitara is made available to its consumers in three styles ranging from Base, Premium, to Limited.

The base and premium models are well equipped with features such as automatic climate control, side and side curtain airbags, full power accessories, removable navigation unit to much more. On the other hand the top line model the Limited variant comes equippedwith style and luxury in the form of leather seating and heated front seats.

Apart from variations in the accessories which form part of different style every Suzuki Grand Vitara is powered with a 2.4 liter inline four cylinders which is measured to offer 166 horsepower and 162 pound feet of torque. Add to that a rear wheel drive which is basic to all standard variants but the premium models are also equipped with four wheel drive system. Despite all the changes that Suzuki has tried to incorporate in this model, but the slow acceleration and unimpressive fuel economy offered by the same has only made it a less appealing model in contrast to its counterparts.

Even the V6’s output has been questioned in terms of performance in comparison to many of four cylinder engines which has further highlighted its poor ride quality over rough pavements. Many also regard the Vitara’s interiors low on comfort and space making it a least favorite model for SUV shoppers.
