Roman Mica and I tore through a Colorado OHV trail in two, slightly different

2010 Suzuki Grand Vitaras. We had a hell of a good time putting together a video which shows how different a slightly modified model can be from the stock one. Suzuki built a stout little 4X4 that scrambled through the OHV trail with the tenacity of an angry terrier.

ARB added a beefy bumper that adds several inches to the approach angle (the stock bumper is very low) and a skid-plate a REAL skid-plate that has already taken on tons of damage while protecting the ‘Zuki. BFGoodrich off-road tires and Old Man Emu (OME) suspension added a few inches of height while dramatically adding to the Grand Vitara’s off road ability.

That’s itno other mods.

The 4X4 system, power-plant, drive-train and interior are unaltered. I like the 230 horsepower 3.2 liter V6, it’s just enough to keep the Suzuki Grand Vitara moving at a good clip while returning OK mileage. I averaged about 20 mpg combined, with the extra weight, fatter tires and my dumbass driving style (all-out-as-often-as-I-can).

The Suzuki can take it.

Interior components were well made and durable if not as fancy as many competitors’. The marble-like swirls (instead of fake wood) is an odd touch, but it is not as silly as fake oak or fake carbon-fiber. Seating space and comfort is good for a small SUV. The rear cargo area is fairly spacious but has a swing-out door that is hard to use when parked by a curb.

I like the standard, mini-navigation system. It’s about the size of an iPhone, is portable and is a breeze to use. My only gripe is that it’s a bit small and not that easy to reach on the top of the dash.

There is a hill-decent-control (HDC) switch, but it is not as aggressive as competitor’s HDC systems. We were surprised at the speed we went down hill with the HDC on. It takes time to get used to.

I like the fact that the Grand Vitara 4X4 has a proper, locking 4X4 system and remains on an auto-4X4 high setting for regular driving.

In regular trim, the Suzuki Grand Vitara is a simple, easygoing ride that will out off-road the Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester and Jeep Compass. When you add a couple grand’s worth of off-roading accessories it will blow every crossover away even the Jeep Patriot. Raha ny tena izy, the overall package (with the aftermarket components) will challenge the very capable Jeep Liberty.

In the video, you may not think these trails offer much of a challenge, but not a single crossover could hope to make it to the top (where part of the end was filmed) without sustaining major damage. Both Suzukis made it to the top and (despite Roman’s off-road driving anxiety) only a few underside scratches were evident on the stock model.

Prices average around $25,000 for a well equipped, V6 4X4 model.

Towing is good for such a little guy at up to 3,000 lbs So, if you are thinking about something unusual; yet rugged, to modify that works great as a commuter, is cheap and has a killer warranty think about the Suzuki Grand Vitara.

The Suzuki Grand Vitara earned, out of a possible 5-star rating 4-stars in driver/front passenger head on collision safety. 5-stars was awarded for side crash rating and 4-stars for rollover protection from the NHTSA.

All Suzuki vehicles have bumper to bumper warranty is 3 years/36,000 miles. Power-train warranty is 7 years and/or 100,000 miles with roadside assistance included for 3 years and/or 36,000 kilaometatra.
