Vehicle Overview

Suzuki calls its Grand Vitara an "off-road athlete." The five-passenger SUV is based on a purely Suzuki design, and competitors include the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson and Toyota RAV4. Base, Premium and Limited versions are offered.

New for 2011
The 3.2-liter V-6 engine has been dropped, so all Grand Vitaras now come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder. The navigation system adds Google Local Search features and traffic and weather information on Premium and Limited models.

The Grand Vitara features accented flared fenders and a tailgate-mounted spare tire. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 16-inch wheels
  • Standard front tow hooks
  • Standard body-colored side moldings

There's room for five in the Grand Vitara on front bucket seats and a 60/40-split folding rear seat that offers fold-and-tumble operation. The Limited version includes a seven-speaker audio system and SmartPass keyless start system, which locks and unlocks the vehicle with the press of a button on the door. Interior features include:

  • Standard navigation system
  • Available Bluetooth connectivity
  • Illuminated steering-wheel controls
  • Chrome interior door handles
  • Standard automatic climate control
  • Sun-visor extenders
  • Sliding armrest

Under the Hood
Formerly available with a four-cylinder or V-6 engine, the Grand Vitara now comes only with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Rear-wheel drive is standard and available with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. Full-time single-mode or four-mode four-wheel-drive systems are available, both only with the automatic. The four-mode system includes 4H, 4H Lock (slippery), 4L Lock and Neutral positions and has a limited-slip center differential. The Neutral position allows for flat towing behind recreational vehicles. Mechanical features include:

  • 166-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four-cylinder with 162 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission
  • Fully independent suspension
  • 3,000-pound towing capacity
  • Rear disc brakes

The frame was strengthened for increased rigidity for 2009. Other standard safety features include:

  • Seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front seats
  • Side curtain airbags with rollover sensors
  • Antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution
  • Electronic stability system
