2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara Review

The 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara is a compact SUV with three trim levels, base, Vitara X-Sport, and Luxury. It comes with a 2.7 liter V6 engine that develops 185 hp and 184 lb-ft torque, and can be outfitted with either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Designed to make driving an SUV more tolerable, the 2008 Grand Vitara's smaller size translates into greater maneuverability, and easier parking, while its good looks offer greater esthetic enjoyment and personality.

Well-outfitted with standard features such as anti-lock brakes, cruise control, stability control, and remote keyless, the Grand Vitara is a bargain right off the showroom floor. Roominess and style describe the well-designed interior, with efficient instrumentation, and comfortable seats. Other features one can see in the Grand Vitara include leather seats, navigation system, overhead DVD entertainment system, wood-grain trim, and sunroof. There is plenty to trick out your Grand Vitara for a long trip.

Safety is no stranger to the internal milieu of the new Grand Vitara either, with driver and front passenger airbags, side impact airbags, and side curtain airbags. Engineered into the Grand Vitara is ample crumple zone protection for passenger compartment intrusion. We also liked the other safety features such as the collapsible steering wheel, excellent cockpit visibility, and tire pressure monitoring system. The 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara is well-suited for the impromptu caper off-road handled by its truck-based undercarriage.

The Grand Vitara for 2008 is quiet and smooth-riding even on cobbled roads. There is minimal leaning on curves, and stopping the vehicle is quick and sure. Fuel economy specs for the 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara report are predictable at 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. Workmanship and detail was exceptional, making the 2008 Grand Vitara a hands down bargain when stacked against its competitors.
