Description and specifications: Grand Vitara
In the appearance of this new car, the changes have been small, but still because of these small details, the car looks more aggressive. In general, it remained easily recognizable. The design decision was to change the appearance of the bumpers and radiator grille, and the pattern on the wheel disks was changed. These are all the innovations that relate to the appearance of the Suzuki Grand Vitara.
Reviews of test drivers have shown that this off-road vehicle does not care about mud baths. He can easily overcome obstacles, both water and various potholes and deep ditches. There were slight difficulties with the entrance to the hill, the car does not seem to be pulling, but in the end it still succeeds. The reason for this problem could be the wrong choice of rubber: it had tires for asph alt, and not for off-road. Encountering deep ravines on its way, Grant Vitara hung with one or two wheels, but soon he was still able to get out of this situation, because the electronic assistance systems worked well.
This car is available in two versions: both with five and with three doors. A 1.6-liter engine is installed in the basic configuration of the three-door, the horsepower of which is 106. The five-door version is designeda two-liter power unit with a capacity of 140 hp In more expensive trim levels, there are engines that reach a volume of 2.4 liters.
As electronic lotions on the Grand Vitara, you can install an assistance system for descent and ascent. By selecting the desired mode for driving down a steep slope, the car will not exceed the low speed you need (about 10 km/h).
In general, the off-road qualities of the Suzuki Grand Vitara are clearly visible. Driver reviews do not indicate that this is a purely city car, as it was announced on the market. Moreover, this Suzuki model in Russia is the best-selling this year.
