2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara | new car review

Posted on Mar 30, 2010 by

With the current and the third generation Grand Vitara, has increased the appeal of its 4-5 passenger carrying small SUV with contemporary exterior styling, improved interior with more passenger space, and modern options. It
has, however, lost some of its ruggedness and off-road prowess in the search for greater acceptability.

The Grand Vitara is available with two 16-valve petrol engines: a 98bhp 1.6-litre and a 2.0-litre making 138bhp. Both units feature drive-by-wire throttle control for excellent engine management. There is also a third 2.7-litre V6 power plant making 181 horses available. The engines are paired either with sporty manual gearboxes or optional smooth shifting 5-speed automatic featuring a new gate design.

The Vitara is available in two distinct body styles: a 3- as well as a 5-door, each with its own unique features and projecting slightly different personalities. Longer and wider than their predecessors, but reduced in height, both
versions look more firmly planted, delivering greater stability for everyday driving. The clean, uncluttered lines of the body styling hint at both a refined elegance and – through the flared wheel arches and the wide track front and rear – a strong dynamic capability. The 3-door model’s shorter wheelbase and its pronounced forward sloping B-pillar provide a more muscular, more traditional SUV look.

In true Suzuki fashion, the Grand Vitara comes exceptionally well equipped with high levels of safety, passenger comfort, and interior room. The interior matches the external styling in spirit as well as design. Bold accents blend with classic forms in an uncluttered layout. The predominantly black interior uses bold silver highlights and circular motifs, while the seat materials use geometric designs and dimpled surfaces: high quality materials pleasing to the eye and touch.
