Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Eleven years on the current-generation Suzuki Grand Vitara still claims to be the king of small-budget, mid-sized SUV practicality with big off-roading capabilities

Familiarity can sometimes offer warmer comfort than those fresh-faced things embracing reinvention. That may well be an underlying feeling for those who’ve bought any Suzuki Grand Vitara in the past decade and who’ve just climbed into the 2016 version. Essentially, it’s the same car – the 4x4-savvy SUV that’s Grand in name but no longer quite so grand in size is still planted in the generation that launched back in 2005.

Thus, it's an uphill crawl for this Grand Battler to rise above its ratings from performances past. In critiquing its holistic SUV goodness, the Grand Vitara has long been a perennial low scorer in CarAdvice ratings past: in the last three reviews it rated one six and a pair of fives out of tens.

That said, none were petrol four-wheel drives wearing a Sport badge. As perhaps the best all-rounder variant of its crop, and at a seductive price point at that, a bump up to 6.5 out of ten is a deserving one.

Pros
Decent off-road abilities
Sport variant the best dual-purpose 4x4 SUV of the breed
Attractive pricing
Old-school charm..

Cons
that's stuck in old-school execution
Powertrain is old hat
Average on-road driving experience
Increasingly passé in this very fast moving segment

The latest Suzuki Vitara offers good value for money and loads of kit, but it's more of a crossover now than a rugged off-roader

The Suzuki Vitara has been transformed from a utilitarian family-friendly SUV into more of a crossover with Range Rover Evoque-inspired styling and more advanced equipment. There's also more dynamic driving ability on offer, but it's not quite up with the class best.

If you can sacrifice a little ride comfort, and value driving dynamics more, the Vitara is a fine crossover that's car-like to drive, with a sharp chassis and steering, but its lack of boot space counts against it. The diesel's mix of strong efficiency and performance is impressive.

Still, with a responsive and agile chassis for the class, and great efficiency from both the petrol and diesel options, this latest crossover-style Vitara is a much more alluring proposition than its off-road biased predecessors.

Pros
Modern design, lively engines, plenty of kit

Cons
Interior quality, noisy diesel, light steering

The old Grand Vitara suffered from lots of body roll in corners and overly light steering making it difficult to drive quickly with confidence. Both these problem have been addressed by this new model, which has the feel of a well-sorted hatchback.

Pros
Cheap to buy and run
Fun to drive
Still good off-road

Cons
Uninspiring looks
Cabin quality not the best
Slightly noisy diesel engine

If you have a small family of four or fewer people, and you are after a modern vehicle that not only looks good but drives good, has sufficient boot space for everyday use, can take you from one place to another in style and comfort and gives pretty decent fuel average for its size, I think Vezel is the best vehicle for you. Also, if you are looking for a second vehicle for your significant other to haul kids and groceries all day, again, this car is a perfect choice.

The HR-V was launched in North America in April 2014. Although Vezel was the new nameplate, the HR-V nameplate is old, and Honda basically revived the name with the new car. Besides, most of the Vezel cars are hybrid and come with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission

I do believe its value for money, Prices will increase or decrease depending upon the model of the car, the condition of the car, the auction sheet grade of the car, etc. So if you are after a Vezel, you will be able to find a decent car in the budget
