SUZUKI – GRAND VITARA
The V6 develops 165kW at 6200 revs and 284Nm at 3500 revs, 22 per cent more power and 14 per cent better torque than the outgoing 2.7-litre V6
The Suzuki Grand Vitara is designed to excel at off-road driving, and it ranks well when compared to other off-road SUVs. If you want both on- and off-road performance in a small package, reviews show that the Grand Vitara is a good option.
The Suzuki Grand Vitara slots below the XL7 crossover utility vehicle in size but has a decidedly more rugged focus. The redesigned unibody construction, along with a fully independent suspension, makes for kinder, gentler ride and handling characteristics in the 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara than the previous truck-based generation could muster.
Power comes from a 2.7-liter V-6 engine that generates 185 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, with a choice of a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The Grand Vitara has a four-wheel antilock brake system with electronic brake force distribution, a technology that distributes the force applied to each of the vehicle’s brakes based on road conditions.
