Suzuki has revealed the first official pictures of the new Grand Vitara range which will have its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
Initially the range will consist of two 5-door models - the 2.0-litre petrol and the 1.9-litre diesel - and a 1.6-litre petrol SWB 3-door model. Both petrol engine models will be available with an optional automatic transmission and all utilise an all-new Suzuki designed permanent four-wheel drive system.
For the first time Suzuki has opted for unitary construction for the Grand Vitara, although ingeniously the monocoque incorporates a ‘built in’ ladder frame to provide the necessary rigidity to ensure exceptional off road ability.
Substantially longer and wider than their predecessors, both 3 and 5-door models will come exceptionally well equipped with higher levels of safety, passenger comfort and interior room.
Prices and exact mechanical and equipment specifications will be announced at Frankfurt.
