The Suzuki Grand Vitara is back! But not the one you thought of. Let’s remind: Suzuki Grand Vitara used to be a pretty good all-terrain vehicle – all-wheel drive, a reduction gear, powerful 4-cylinder engines, and even a V6. However, now the Suzuki Grand Vitara is a crossover. It is also quite compact: the total length of the body is 4.345 m, and the wheelbase is 2.5 m.
The general design is typical: the Global C platform (that is, a relative of the Suzuki Vitara and S-Cross), in most versions – only front-wheel drive. Thankfully, there is a choice of engines, both hybrid and 1.5-liter: Suzuki’s signature K15C (103 hp) with a “mild hybrid” add-on, or the Toyota version codenamed M15A-FXE with a more powerful (116 hp) and an efficient hybrid drive. Transmissions are offered to choose from: either a 5-speed MKPSh or a 6-speed AKPSH. However, you can get all-wheel drive only in the case of the K15C engine and MKPSH. The rest of the versions, as already mentioned above, have only front-wheel drive. This is what it is, a modern version of the Suzuki Grand Vitara…
In the basic version, the car offers steel wheels and conventional headlights, but more expensive configurations can boast of 17-inch light-alloy wheels, LEDs in the headlights, and a 9-inch color display in the cabin. And as an option, a panoramic glass roof, seat ventilation, and Arkamys audio system are offered. Maximum configurations can offer up to six airbags. Oh, and this is already a good manifestation of modernity for the Suzuki Grand Vitara model!
The crossover will be manufactured in India and sold in the local market, in African countries, etc. The market launch will take place in fall. Would you like to see such a Suzuki Grand Vitara crossover in Ukraine? Will the existing Suzuki Vitara model and the new Suzuki S-Cross be enough for us?
