2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
About a month ago I purchased a Suzuki Grand Vitara and what a nice ride! At the time I was looking to purchase a small size SUV to use as my daily drive car and did a lot of looking on the net. I basically narrowed it down to the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sportage and the Suzuki Grand Vitara. I drove all three vehicles (more than once) and decided to buy the Luxury package model Suzuki Grand Vitara for two main reasons. One was the available horsepower and shifting, the second was the quality of the interior and leather. The motor has more torque and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The other two seemed weak and the shifting was jumpy.
I love the great stereo and 7 speakers with 200 Watts to drive them. The Suzuki Grand Vitara also has great quality (100% Japan made!).
The only one small item is that it could use more cup and loose change holders (I guess there is never enough).
