There isinformation that the Suzuki Grand Vitara in 2018, the parameters of which canbe seen on our website, equipped with a new type of falshradiator grille, and arather massive front bumper. Somewhat upsetting is the fact that the car hasthe same optics – apparently, the engineers of the manufacturer did not want tochange the lighting system.

It is noted that the whole body was exposed to the raistaling. The car willretain a sporty appearance, which is due to the presence of a sloping roof,several aggressive bumpers, wide wheel arches, original mirrors (exterior) andother elements.

Various sources say that the car interior has been slightly updated. However,in general, the internal space of the crossover has preserved a conservativeand economical style, which, apparently, may be of interest to representativesof the older generation, but not the young. As experts say, for people under 50years old, even to look into the cabin of this crossover simply does not want,and older people can simply not pay attention to this.

Among the materials that were used in interior decoration, inexpensive fabricand plastic prevail. Although the manufacturer had promises to improve thequality of finishing materials. Apparently, the interior elements will retainthe layout that the previous model had. And this means the presence of suchdetails:

    round deflectors of the heater;
    a classic and quiet instrument panel that is highlyfunctional;
    decorative elements and details in a small amount;
    central console, which has a slightly angular shape;
    a modern multimedia system (infotainment), which has alarge diagonal display;
    convenient and functional steering wheel;
    modernized and rather comfortable chairs, which have aunique upholstery (it can be replaced if the buyer so desires).

The volume of thetrunk of the vehicle is 380 liters, which makes it possible to transportvarious things (for example, when going on a hunt or fishing). If you remove therear seats, the amount of free space in the trunk will increase by three times.This is especially convenient for families with children.

It should be notedthat the new Suzuki Grand Vitara 2018, the photo of which is placed on oursite, has a four-cylinder turbocharged four as the base engine. The volume ofthis engine is 1.4 liters, and the power it develops is 205 hp. It is moreeconomical in operation, compared to the unit used in the previous version ofthe car. With the help of this engine, the car can accelerate to hundreds muchfaster than 8 seconds. The maximum speed of the crossover is from 175 to 185 km/ h.

Together with the engine will be used automatic gearbox with six steps. Thecrossover will be all-wheel drive, but those buyers for whom this aspect doesnot play a role, can expect to buy a model with a drive to one of the axles.For all-wheel drive vehicles there are several modes of operation:

    for roads with asphalt pavement;
    for strong off-road, when using a reduced gear;
    neutral (in order to tow a car).

The new model has much less weight than its predecessor. This is due to thefact that the manufacturer in the production of new items used a large numberof alloys and high-strength steel. In addition, a decrease in the mass of thecar will affect its dynamics. This crossover is easy enough to manage, which isdue to the use of a rigid suspension.

In the Suzuki Grand Vitara there are several security systems, each of which performs its function. This refers to the behavior of the car on different types of pavement, reducing the risk of injury to people in the cabin, etc. Each system is quite efficient, which is due to the presence of the Japanese approach, characterized by the use of modern technology.


Nowadays, the manufacturer offers several Suzuki Grand Vitara complete sets (it is GLX, GL and GL +). It is expected that this list will be expanded to allow the consumer to choose the crossover with the desired level of illumination.

The basic version of the updated crossover model includes the following elements:

    Six “airbegs” (curtains, as well as side cushions);
    different car security systems, which in combination are sufficiently effective and reliable;
    modern high-power air conditioning, which provides a cool in the cabin during the hot season;
    heated front seats;
    effective cruise control system;
    steering wheel with many functions;

These vehicles include the following models:

     Nissan Terrano;
     Nissan Qashqai;
     Ssang Yong Actyon;
     Citroen C-Crosser.


Since the new Suzuki Grand Vitara car has been subjected to full modernization at thefactory, this can arouse serious interest among the target audience. The newoff-road vehicles are quite sporty, causing a look with features ofaggressiveness and swiftness. This SUV in its appearance (if you do not takeinto account the specifics of the interior design) may be of interest not onlyto the representatives of the youth, but also to older generations.

If the manufacturing company works a little more on the interior of this carand updates it, it can contribute to an increase in demand for a crossover. Afeature of the car is that at a high speed, the stability factor is lost. Therefore, such an SUV is inappropriate to use for fans of a crazy ride.

It can be assumed that after a while the queue of fans of Japanese quality andtechnological novelty will be built on this car. He will be an excellent assistant not only for family people, but also for fans of recreation alone.
