Suzuki Grand Vitara SZ-T
Suzuki is launching a limited edition version of the Grand Vitara – the Grand Vitara SZ-T – with the 1.9 DDi engine. Just 500 being built.
Whatever you may think about the Suzuki Grand Vitara (and it is better than you’d think off-road) you have to confess it comes with a history.
The Vitara was the first compact SUV of any sort to hit the roads, and loved though it was by hairdressers, it started a trend for high-riding compact SUVs and crossovers that shows no signs of abating. That said, having created the market, Suzuki has really failed to capitalise.
Will the new Suzuki Grand Vitara SZ-T change that? No, but it will mean that if you’ve decided the Grand Vitara is the car for you then you won’t have to trouble the options list too much, as Suzuki has bolted most of what you’re likely to want in to the SZ-T already.
Suzuki has given the Grand Vitara SZ-T a new front grill and a set of 18″ alloys, silver coloured bonnet vents and roof rails, indicators in the door mirrors and the spare wheel mounted on the tailgate. Add to that unique contrasting fabric upholstery, cruise control and Keyless, and you’ve probably got all you’re likely to want.
The SZ-T gets the latest 1.9 litre DDiS Diesel engine with 127bhp (which isn’t really enough) and 221lb/ft of torque. Emissions are 179g/km and economy is listed at 41.5mpg.
The 500 Suzuki Grand Vitara SZ-T models are now available to order at £22,315, with a choice of Quasar Grey, Silky Silver, Blueish Black Pearl, Phoenix Red Pearl and Nocturne Blue Pearl metallic paint.
