2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara Reviews
The 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara is a compact, five-seat SUV that returns unchanged for the new model year.
The Grand Vitara's clean, forgettable lines strike a nice balance between tougher-bred SUVs and softer crossovers, but it's not as distinctive as the latest Hyundai or Kia offerings. Suzuki outfits the Grand Vitara with a choice of two engines. While it has rugged four-wheel drive, the Grand Vitara can also be switched into an automatic all-wheel-drive mode, for set-and-forget driving. Though it offers the expected anti-lock brakes, as well as stability and traction control systems as standard, along with front-side and side-curtain airbags, the "Grand Vitara" doesn't top any safety ratings.
