2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara XSport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


just bought mine so this quality/reliability rating is irrelevant. All the reviews suggest the only small X overs you can actually take off road are Subarus and the GV and the GV is incrementally better off road. That was my deciding factor, despite reliability concerns. Always owned Hondas which have been bullet proof. My X Sport has true 4X4 w/lower gearing. I wanted the 6 cylinder with its addtl off road capability, but they are sold out in my region. I NEEDED to buy, Suzuki has $3K rebate and Sept sales were awful so dealer was willing to deal so I decided not to wait for 2010s. The GV price was right, the interior is nice & it has some off road chops. we'll see about reliability.

Best Features

For an extra $1300, the X sport gives you sunroof, fog lamps, and true 4x4 with lower gears. Pretty hard to argue against.
