    Cheaper than CR-V and Outlander, Grand Vitara is practical and most affordable SUV today. The tall and huge in size Vitara smoothly glides in traffic. The wide alloy wheels give it a sporty look. The front seats are comfortable and the rear seats are foldable. Cup holders and cubby holes offer enough storage space. The steering is mounted with controls. CD changer, climate control system, central locking, tinted windows, etc are some of the good features of Vitara. Review Link

    Maruti Grand Vitara, the complete off-roader from India’s largest passenger carmaker Maruti Suzuki India, was launched in the year 2009. The SUV is also known by the name of Escudo in various other countries. The car is something worth to talk about as it has set some records of its own; thanks to the performance, compulsive and comprehensive list of comfort features it carries. Since launched in the Indian market, the roadster has faced tough challenges from Tata Safari, Honda CRV, Mahindra Scorpio and Ford Endeavour in the segment. Maruti Grand Vitara incorporates advance powerhouse of 2.4L four cylinders 16V DOHC Petrol Engine producing massive 164 bhp of power @ 6000 rpm and 222 Nm of peak torque @ 4000 rpm. The powerful engine comes mated with either five-speed manual or automatic transmission option. The engine is coupled with advanced intercooler that keeps the powerhouse under control. Powertrain also consists of variable valve timing (VVT) and variable induction system (VIS) which optimizes torque and increasing acceleration. Looking upon the details of the engine, the car seems to be unstoppable in making fame across India and giving tough call to its counterparts. The splendid and powerful Maruti Grand Vitara is variably known for its excellent mileage statistics where it undoubtedly beats up most of its rivals in the segment. As per the ARAI figures, the powerful engine is also frugal in terms of mileage delivering 7 kmpl in the urban conditions and around 10 kmpl on major routes. The figure is same in both automatic and manual transmission variants, which is a shrewd strategy of the company to attract the conservative mass as much possible Review Link

    After driving a Scorpio (yellow - sports edition) for nearly 3 years (approx 1,00,000 kms), it was time(Apr 08) for a change. Though the average running was in the range of 3000 kms/month, this time around I wanted a ’reliable’ car. My work takes me to places where there are no roads sometimes - and one of the shortfalls with the Scorpio was the lack of a 4-wheel drive (though they came up with a variant later, it wasnt anything worth talkign about).

    So I turned to the best in the Maruti stable. THE SUZUKI GRAND VITARA XL-7. You wont say that this car is a dabba, cause it’s a beauty. It’s a global vehicle from the Suzuki stable. THE GRAND VITARA XL- 7 IS IMPORTED FROM SUZUKI, JAPAN AS A COMPLETELY BUILT UNIT . But is not very common cause its in the PREMIUM SPORTS UTILITY VEHICLE segment. So gear up for a grant life.

    The Grand VitaraXL-7 is a CBU, and so it is the SUZUKI Grand Vitara XL-7. So what does xl-7 stand for? The Grand Vitara is available in short wheelbase and long wheelbase versions. So maybe XL stands for xtra large (long wheel base) and 7 stands for its 2. 7 . It is priced at a position where that much money could fetch you a Mondeo, Vectra, Camry or an Accord V6. But SUVs are for those who want SUVs, and not for those who want cars. It has some tough competitors like the Pajero. But the xl-7 really impresses.
    looks and build - the xl-7 is a face lifted version of the old Grand Vitara. The changes are less, but nevertheless are good. The front used to look like the one in the photo shown above. On the xl-7, it looks much more elegant and macho looking. Headlamps are multi reflector. The grille is especially good with its chrome strip. The bumper has huge fog lamps. The side looks muscular and strong. The wheel arches and alloys look good. The tires are 16’’ inch. I feel that the side looks like that of a land cruiser. The rear is bland. The tail lamps aren’t even multi reflector. The spare wheel is placed at the back and it does not get a full cover either. The build quality is good enough for an SUV. The looks are okay and are really good in the side. But the Pajero definitely gets the advantage here.
    interior - the interior has a lot of leather and wood. The seats are comfortable. The instrument panel is well laid out. The dash looks very attractive with wood and its LCD readout. Ergonomics are very good. There is plenty of space too. The second row has legroom, but not as much as expected. There is a third row though. Materials used in the interior are of good quality. For a car of its price, people will expect a luxurious interior (like in the Vector, Accord, Mondeo and Camry). The Vitara definitely has it. The Terracan is way behind. The Vitara is as good as, or better than the Pajero in some aspects.
    engine and performance -the engine is a v6 and can displace 2700 cc or so. It runs on petrol and power is very good at 164 bhp. The torque could be better. 24 kgm is good, but not good enough. Incidentally, the xl-7 is the most powerful of all SUVs in its range. the engine is refined even if there is some noise. The Grand Vitara XL-7 weighs around 1.6 tones. So that works out to around 1 bhp for 10 kilos, which is good. The terracan is much heavier and its power to weight ratio is lesser. The engine is petrol and is powerful, so one can expect good performance. There is kick even lower down. It takes you by surprise with its quick acceleration. 0-100 km/h comes in just above 10 seconds! That is as good as many of the other sedans in this segment! I did not expect it to be so fast. The top speed is above 160 km/h, which is okay.
    ride and handling - ride is very good. All the irregularities on the roads are swallowed with ease. In cities the ride quality is good. Handling is what can be expected from an SUV. It is okay, but because of its size and weight, it tends to under steer. It has power and other capabilities that are required to be a good off roader.
    fuel efficiency - this vehicles has a v6 engine and runs on petrol. So forget about fuel efficiency. This is an SUV after all! In the city around 6 km/l is just useless. Even on the highway it does not return more than 9 km/l. in mixed conditions it gives just 8 km/l. the Terracan in this respect is much better because of its diesel CRDi engine. same with the Pajero. So with power comes a price, which may be too hefty.
    FINAL VERDICT - the Grand Vitara is as good as the Terracan and the Pajero. It has elegant at the same time muscular looks. It is very powerful. It is luxurious inside and has a very capable refined engine, which can venture off road. The handling is no better than other SUVs. The efficiency in fuel consumption is disappointing. So, should someone buy it given they have the money? Yes, if they want an SUV. But it is not a class beater. The Terracan, Pajero and Grand Vitara XL-7 are equally good. Buy it if you want an SUV. If not, go for the accord v6 or some other sedan.

    Firstly, its not a ’’Maruti’’ Grand Vitara; its a ’’Suzuki’’ Grand Vitara XL-7 since it comes in as a completely built up unit (CBU).
    Its a great car, sorry, a Sports Utility Vehicale (SUV) and just the right one. While comparisons are not always appropriate and easy; this car is just right to a lot of pockets.
    Its much easy on the pocket at Rs20 lacs (on the road) as compared to the obscenely priced & overly hyped Pajero (Rs36 lacs). It also packs a good 2.7 ltr petrol engine under the hood. While the bhp it generates is equal to the 2 ltr engine of Honda CRV; the torque is immense and certainly makes it stand apart.
    The most important point is the hydraulic engine mounting, high ground clearance, superb raod handling & grip .... I could drive in areas where I could never drive before with my Altura or Corsa !!!!
    The clincher for going in for the car, is the sales & after-sales-service infrastructure! Honda dealers have always been very snooty, especially in cities like Bangalore where you have only dealer. ’’No-Competition’’ is unhealthy and hope Honda Motors realise it soon. Suzuki has the the best & most extensive service centers and you can be sure of not being stranded .... not that you would expect that in the Grand Vitara XL-7.
    GREAT BUY IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY ........ Don’t even look at the Sonatas & Mercs ! Review Link
