Suzuki Australia has updated its Grand Vitara lineup for 2015 with specification upgrades that include new 18-inch wheels, as well as interior and exterior enhancements.
The new Grand Vitara is available in two different models; Grand Vitara Navigator 2WD and Grand Vitara Sport 4WD. Both variants come with a high level of standard equipment and feature a new “aggressive yet stylish look”.
Starting from $27,990, the Grand Vitara Navigator comes standard with five-speed manual, with four-speed automatic transmission a no-cost upgrade. All Grand Vitara models are powered by a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 122kW and 225Nm.
The base model Navigator 2WD includes a leather steering wheel, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, digital climate control, multimedia satellite navigation, new suede and fabric seat trim, champagne silver interior accents, cruise control, and a full-size spare alloy wheel. Moving up the Sport 4WD variant adds four-wheel drive and front fog lamps.
In addition to the new 18-inch wheels, other exterior upgrades include new silver roof rails and a new dark chrome front grille. Safety-wise both Grand Vitara five-door models come with ABS, electronic brake distribution, ESP, reversing camera, and six airbags as standard.
Suzuki says the Grand Vitara “has been a pioneer for Suzuki’s 4×4 heritage since its first launch in 1988, and has built on Suzuki’s reputation for excellent four-mode 4×4 driveability”.
The 2015 Grand Vitara joins the updated 2015 Jimny 4×4 which also includes various styling upgrades as well as electronic stability control.
