The all-new 2017 Suzuki Grand Vitara seems to be getting a facelift as has been indicated by the company for quite some time now. On the works will most likely be improved body material, newer software on the inside and a better tweaked engine. However is all this worth spending your hard earned money on? Read on to find out.
2017 Suzuki Grand Vitara: Redesign and Features
The car is poised to get a full makeover on the insides. Overall, the new model seems to appear much more sophisticated over its previous iteration. Not only that, the car body seems to have been redesigned with the new model standing at 4.2 meter long. Not only will this make the body much more stable by bringing down the centre of gravity, the legroom will be considerably better on the insides as well. Comfort and convenience are the two main features being focused on in the new model of the car. The interior also seems, by default to be based on a darker accent to bring out the sophisticated corporate look in the car. The infotainment system also seems to have been given a facelift to integrate better software and friendlier interface. Combine all this with premium features like power seats, leather upholstery, etc. and what is there to not love?
The new version of the 2017 Suzuki Grand Vitara will have a bolder overall look. With the front horizontal grille with the characteristic Suzuki logo, it definitely looks the part. Since the SUV is looking to compete with sports utility vehicles as well, the car will receive a lot of new features. Primary among this is the addition of a new fog light to increase all weather driving conditions. Also, the headlights are being fully converted to go greener. The sides have been made more aerodynamic as well in order to help with streamlining. There have been no real modifications on the rear; however, the luggage area might be made more spacious.
2017 Suzuki Grand Vitara: Engine
Driving all this is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 205 HP of power at 225 lb-ft of torque, this might not be the most powerful engine in the class, but this car was built for style and cruising, not fast speeds. However, with a capacity of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds, Suzuki has even that segment covered. Take into account that the car boasts a top speed of 150 mph and everyone will agree that even the most hard-core SUV fans have to agree that this is a powerhouse at its class. All this power is mated to a 6 speed auto transmission engine. The car is available in a 4 wheel drive setup so that even the off road capabilities are decent enough to work with.
2017 Grand Vitara: Price and Arrival
The 2017 Suzuki Grand Vitara will target a very loyal customer base. As such, it is looking at a starting price of about $30,000. However, you will have to wait till early next year at the least before you can get one for your own garage.
