The popular Suzuki Grand Vitara has just been given some serious product upgrades for the NZ market.
Electronic stability programme (ESP) and cruise control are now standard across the Grand Vitara range, including the entry level three-door 2.4 JLX.
The LTD Flagship version of the five-door 2.4 four-cylinder models available in New Zealand is now equipped with seven-spoke 18 inch diameter alloy wheels shod with 225/65 series tyres. Previously these wheels were an optional extra.
All versions have climate control air conditioning, trip and fuel computer, alloy wheels and anti-lock brakes with EBD and brake assist.
The Grand Vitara’s braking capability has also been improved by standard fitment of four wheel disc brakes, underpinning the vehicle’s high safety standards.
“We have had strong business enquiry for Grand Vitara from clients who have requirements for a low range four wheel drive but would like a more compact and affordable vehicle than a double cab utility,” said Gary Collins, sales manager for Suzuki New Zealand.
More than 2.5 million Grand Vitaras have been sold world-wide, and the model has racked up more than 35 awards.
On-road recommended retail prices start from $31,690 for the three-door 2.4 model with five-speed manual transmission extending to $41,990 for the five-door 2.4 LTD and $46,990 for the five-door 3.2 litre V6 LTD.
