Best Compact SUV i have driven recently

Great small SUV. Very comfortable, great gas mileage (currently my GV is getting 19mpg city and 26mpg highway). Acceleration is quite good, i drive the automatic 5-speed transmision with rear-wheel drive and acceleration from 0-60 only takes 8 seconds although a stronger engine would be nicer. Interior is very attractive and very useful. Exterior styling is the best one i have seen on a SUV lately. I also own a CRV but the vitara definately is way more fun to drive and is also way more attractive and powerful.

I find this to handle like a dream on unpathed roads and in off road conditions!!! Everyone who regularly drives on gravel should own one! I also love the key pod, tire pressure indicator, and exterior light (don't have to shut off) feature. Negatives- no sunglass holder compartment or navigation system

When I first went to Suzuki it was cause they called me in for an auto loan they have approved me for. I didn't know any thing about the Suzuki line and at first I didn't want to go with it. The sales man showed me the car and explained all the features on the car and the 7 year 100/thousand mile warranty. I ended up buying the car and its now 3 months later and im still in love with it. I love the way it drives and handles I have not had any problems with it so far. Two of my coworkers even went out and got the same grand vitara in different colors. Well I love my grand vitara and Im sure any one else will.

Great little car. Excellent room inside and has plenty of extra little zings.. Great stereo in the Xsport and the inside is full of extra's such as side impact airbags. Only wish the engine had a bit more kick and got slightly better gas milege. Overall a great little car. Will buy and XL7 next year.

I don't think there is a better SUV for the money. It is a good looking car that gets good gas mileage, but still has some power and is a comfortable ride. It is a very versitile vehicle. Great for any single or small family.

This is my second Suzuki and I love them. Suzuki is underrated in the United States they make a very relaible car that is very cheap to maintain. I would recommend a Suzuki to anyone who wants a SUV with 4 wheel drive but cant afford the huge sticker prices of other models.

Great Small SUV

It's standard features and interior quality as well as interior comfort are among the best in class, it has better Off-Road performance than an FJ-Cruiser or a Jeep Liberty and offers better gas mileage than both. Has a stronger standard engine than a Rav4 or CRV, has the most distinctively and attractive exterior in it's class and has a suspension as firmer as a sedan and it also rides and feels like one too. No wonder AP calls it the compact-suv of the year. Kudos to Suzuki for making one of the best compact suv's we've seen recently on the market.
