In common with all other Grand Vitara Estate models interior furnishings, the design of the seats with new 'doughnut' type detachable head restraints, instrumentation and the 'in car' entertainment system combine together to provide class leading levels of quality, style, comfort, durability and ease of use.
There are stylish new fabrics and finishes, the instrument panel - which contains the speedometer, tachometer, fuel and engine temperature gauges and an array of warning lamps including low fuel and door open reminders - is back lit by fibre optics for greater clarity to reduce eye fatigue. Latest generation ABS with EBD* is standard.
*Electronic Brake Force Distribution
A high quality radio and CD player - with additional volume and function control switches built into the steering wheel - is integrated within the front centre console along with dial-up and push button controls for the heating, ventilation and optional air conditioning systems. Switches and adjustment controls for the electric windows and mirrors and central locking are conveniently positioned on the driver's door armrest for ease of use.
A centre console also houses various storage compartments, one of which when opened gives access to two cup holders, as well as a cigarette lighter and a 12-volt socket for charging a mobile phone or powering other devices.
The front centre armrest, which adjusts 'fore' and aft', can be 'folded over' to reveal two further cup holders and a storage compartment which is well hidden from prying eyes. Additional storage is available in the door pockets, seat backs and in a sliding tray beneath the front passenger seat.
The introduction of the 3-door, 2.0 litre diesel SE Estate - with a very competitive delivered price* of £14,733 - strengthens further the appeal of the Grand Vitara range with each model representing remarkable value for money and incorporating a very comprehensive 'standard' specification, which includes:
