Though this version of the Suzuki Grand Vitara falls far short of the best in this class, it does have some virtues. Equipped with its standard four-cylinder engine, the powertrain is sluggish, lacks refinement, and is not very economical with fuel. The ride is stiff and choppy, and handling lacks agility. Despite its everyday clumsiness, emergency handling is very secure. Other good points include a spacious rear seat and a generous list of standard amenities.
