Sporty edge for Grand Vitara
Suzuki has unveiled a new addition to its award-winning Grand Vitara range with the release of the Grand Vitara Sport.
On sale from mid October it adds new levels of performance and value for money.
Featuring new 18-inch alloy wheels, Bombora Aqua seat fabric, a newly-designed front grille and silver colored roof rails and side fins, the new model is a valued addition to the GV line-up alongside other popular variants such as the Urban, Prestige and DDiS models.
The automatic Grand Vitara Sport also comes standard with Hill Hold Control (HHC) and Hill Descent Control (HDC), adding even more performance to its unrivalled off-road credentials. In essence, HDC regulates the speed at which Grand Vitara travels downhill, particularly in steep, or difficult, off-road conditions. HHC is designed to assist the driver in starting to move up a steep hill.
And with a starting price of just $31,990 drive away, the Grand Vitara Sport personifies Suzuki’s commitment to providing outstanding value for money.
The arrival of Grand Vitara Sport heralds the return to full production of the Grand Vitara range, which has suffered from stock constraints in Australia since the March tsunami.
“We remain on track for another record year and the Grand Vitara range – now boosted with the arrival of the outstanding Sport – is a vital part of our line-up,” said Suzuki Australia General Manager Tony Devers.
He said Suzuki would be an aggressive player in the market place, signalling that intention with price cuts across the Grand Vitara range.
“With this new pricing, there has never been a better time to see why the 4x4 experts rate the Grand Vitara – the original compact SUV – as best in class,” said Devers.
