What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Vitara has excellent off-road ability, and there's a wide choice

Against The ride is bumpy, the car lacks grip, the diesel is weak, and there's limited rear cabin space

Verdict It's a proper junior off-roader, and fun around town, but it lacks its rivals' good manners on-road

Go for… Seven-seaters

Avoid… Diesels

Suzuki Grand Vitara 4x4
  • 1. Ensure engine has been serviced every 6000 miles
  • 2. Watch out for off-road damage, particularly on the underside of the car
  • 3. Ensure that important recall work to the suspension was completed
  • 4. The boot is nice and deep, but load sill is a bit high
  • 5. The cabin is roomy, but tight for three in the back
