2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara

The 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara is an affordable compact SUV that is a nice fit on the roads of Nassau, but does the good outweigh the bad and make this vehicle a sure purchase?

The Grand Vitara certainly doesn’t lack in the looks department, sporting a conventional style that has been adapted by most vehicles in its class. But beyond the exterior, other elements of the compact SUV have to be examined before signing on the dotted line.

One of those areas is fuel economy, in which the Grand Vitara doesn’t flex its muscles. It consumes one gallon of gas every 19 miles in the city and a gallon of gas every 26 miles on the highway, which is slightly better than regular-sized SUV’s. Considering that factor and observing how fuel prices are gradually rising, it’s not a strong selling point for the vehicle.

However, the Grand Vitara excels in its off-road capabilities. The vehicle is well-suited for the roads of Nassau, as drivers sometimes feel like they are dodging pot holes after every stop light. Being built for that type of driving experience is an advantage to have, as durability matters most to some drivers. The interior of the mini-SUV has a fresher style, sporting a more cleaner look that its predecessors.

The Grand Vitara comes in three models: the base, premium and limited types. The premium is a nice upgrade, offering keyless entry and start system, a seven-speaker stereo and an in-dash six disc changer and subwoofer. Quality Motors of Nassau carries the vehicle starting at$32,995, which is a reasonable price for its class. William Lehman of Suzuki of Miami, Florida carries the all models starting at$19,994, but factor in the 75 percent duty and the final price would be$34,989.

The 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara has some elements that would make it a great buy for a driver, but other factors that may cause them to pass on it.

Guardian Business gives the Grand Vitara one thumb up and one thumb down.
