Grand Vitara Gets Trimmed

As the Suzuki Grand Vitara has just been evaluated by Euro NCAP and obtained a fairly good rating, the Japanese manufacturer is planning to release a 3-door diesel model for the UK customers. So far, the Queen's subject who wanted to buy a diesel Grand Vitara had only a only a 5-door version available, but as of April, and with a price of GBP 14,999, a 3-door bodystyle will become available.

Power to this 3-door diesel will be provided by a 1.9 turbocharged engine from Renault, which delivers 129 brake horsepower and 300 Nm of torque reachable at 2000 rpm. All of this coupled to a 5 speed manual transmission, enhanced by the permanent four wheel drive.

Depending on the equipment level, the Grand Vitara has available climate control air conditioning, radio/CD player with steering wheel controls, electric front windows, reclining rear seats, alloy rims and fog lights. The safety department is also covered with front, side and curtain airbags in the front and curtain airbags for the backseat passengers.

The Suzuki Grand Vitara was first released on British territory in 1999, but they don't call it Grand Vitara on all the markets, the Japanese (among others) naming it the Suzuki Escudo.
