Suzuki took their Sidekick compact SUV and chose to make a better version. Originally, this is what the Grand Vitara was meant to be – a better version of the Sidekick. This started a trend in the compact SUV segment, a segment that gets bigger every year, yet it seems not better than the Vitara. The Vitara holds onto what SUVs were originally meant for and have more built-in hauling and off-roading capabilities in their basic model than other compact SUVs like the CR-V, RAV4 or Escape.
The Grand Vitara has a great balance of performance and practicality. It wasn’t given a flashy design so that the focus can go to the things that count towards driveability. There’s plenty of cargo room and new technological features like Hill Hold Control and Hill Descent Control which can electronically aid stability. With its 2.4 liter engine, the Grand Vitara still manages to get 26 MPG capabilities on the highway.
