The current JB Series Grand Vitara came fresh of the boat in Australia back in September 2005 and signaled a change for the Japanese brand’s compact SUV with a move to a modern monocoque chassis with fully independent suspension.

之前的Grand Vitara的得到了一个老派单独的底盘和现场后轴。

As compact SUV’s have had to become multi-talented, easy to drive on the road day to day yet still able to handle the dreamt about off the beaten track holiday, the change was necessary for Suzuki to keep the Grand Vitara on buyers shopping lists.

作为紧凑型SUV的已成为多才多艺,容易驾驶道路上的每一天,但仍能够处理梦想起飞因循守旧假日,这一变化是必要的铃木保持的Grand Vitara的买家购物名单。

It appears to have worked as the current shape Grand Vitara is twice as popular with Australians compared to the previous model.

However three years is a long time even in the car world so Suzuki have recently updated the compact SUV with a mid lifecycle facelift.

Gone are the previous petrol models, the 2.0L 4 cylinder petrol engine has been replaced with an all new 2.4L 4 cylinder that we’re testing in luxury ‘Prestige’ trim. The power and torque figures have jumped from the 103 kW and 183 Nm to a more meaty 122 kW and 225 Nm.

已经一去不复返了以前的汽油型号, 2.0升4缸汽油发动机已取代了所有新的2.4L 4缸,我们正在测试的豪华'威望'修剪。功率和扭矩数字已增长了103千瓦和183 nm到更肉122千瓦和225牛米。

The Grand Vitara can rightfully claim to be a true off-roader unlike the majority of compact SUV’s.

大维特拉可以理所当然地声称自己是一个真正的越野车不同的是多数紧凑型SUV的。 Switch from variable 4WD to constant 4WD and then to low range 4WD lock for when the off-road track turns malicious.

However with optional 18” alloy wheels with relatively low profile tyres the updated Grand Vitara aims to be competitive on road as well.

正如任何精心设计的SUV内部的Grand Vitara拥有丰富的自然光与传入深Windows和指挥前面座位的位置相比,传统的轿车。

Furthermore the rear seats are set higher than those in the front so everyone gets a good view out.

此外,后排座椅设置高于前使每个人都得到了良好的看法了。

Headroom and legroom upfront is ample, however in the rear due to the sunroof, which comes standard on the premium grade, headroom space is at a premium.

头部和腿部空间前期充分的,但是在后方由于天窗,这是标准的优质等级,余量空间变得异常珍贵。

The extra large exterior side mirrors are a necessity as the spare wheel is mounted on the rear tail gate, reducing the view rearwards when using the rear view mirror.

特大型外墙的侧后视镜是一种必要的备用轮胎被安装在车尾尾门,减少认为后面当使用后视镜。



The front seats are firm yet are still comfortable on long trips with sufficient lateral support. The leather covered steering wheel is adjustable for height only yet it is easy to get a comfortable driving position.

前排座椅是坚定但仍很舒适的长途旅行提供足够的侧向支持。皮革包括方向盘高度可调的唯一尚未很容易得到一个舒适的驾驶位置。

Fit and Finish is of a high quality with a splashing of aluminium look trim lifting the ambience of the dark and smart leather interior.

We’re not sure of the unusual ‘stone’ finish in place of the usual wood grain, however this is purely subjective.

The infotainment system is fully integrated and the climate control system has been updated with an unusual central circle LCD display.

我们已经推动了很多汽车,在我们这个时代,还从来没见过这样大的电除尘器开关按钮,作为一个在的Grand Vitara的中心控制台。

The rear cargo compartment is of a decent size and there is a small under floor compartment to place small items that you don’t wish to be visible from prying eyes looking in.

The new petrol 2.4L engine upgrade has improved acceleration, with the 0-100 km/h sprint now taking 11.7 seconds, down from 12.5.

新的2.4L汽油发动机加速升级改进,并0-100 km / h加速冲刺现在正在一十一点七秒,从5月12日。

道路上的感觉充分的Grand Vitara供电相比,紧凑型SUV的竞争,但表现并不急于写信回家与亲友如果你比较类似的中型轿车。



The auto transmission is only a four speed and whilst we had no complaints with it, the 5 speed auto which is standard in the V6 model would slightly improve in gear acceleration and of course fuel economy.

该自动变速器只有4个速度,虽然我们已经没有什么可抱怨的是, 5速自动这是标准模型中的V6发动机将略有改善齿轮加速,当然燃油经济性。

Interior engine noise is relatively quiet at cruising speeds with only the usual thrum from the tyres and the wind hitting the large exterior mirrors at speed.

Ride and Handling

乘坐及处理



The Suzuki Grand Vitara is an easy vehicle to drive, by no means is it an agricultural 4x4.

在铃木Grand Vitara是一件容易的车辆驾驶,绝非是一个农业四驱车。

The ride is firm yet still comfortable, and when the going gets rough off-road the term firm becomes even more appropriate.

该机是坚定的,但仍舒服,当了发言权越野任期公司变得更加适当。



If you happen to enter a corner with too much speed you are reminded all too quickly that this isn’ta low riding passenger car.

如果您进入了一个角落里过多的速度你是提醒所有太快,这并不是一个低骑马轿车。

The high ride necessary to head off-road, soft long travel suspension and a kerb weight of 1640kg results in excessive body roll.

高骑必要头越野,软长期旅行暂停和石壆重量一**○千克结果过多机构名册。



Compared to traditional old school 4x4’s with a separate chassis the handling is very good, it’s just that the Grand Vitara also competes in a class, compact SUV, that includes crossovers such as the Volkswagen Tiguan and the upcoming Ford Kuga, which behave far better on road as they are based of their respective passenger cars, the VW Golf and Ford Focus. However head off road and the advantage swings back in favour of the Grand Vitara.

与传统的老学校四驱车的同一个单独的底盘的处理非常好,这只是该公司的Grand Vitara也是一类,紧凑型SUV ,包括分频器,如大众Tiguan和即将推出的福特Kuga ,这表现远远好于道,因为它们是根据各自的轿车,大众高尔夫和福特福克斯。然而头越野和优势波动回到赞成的Grand Vitara 。



Standard 17” alloys on gold car and optional 18” alloys on black car

标准的17 “黄金合金汽车和可选18 ”合金黑车



Off the beaten track the combination of 200mm of ground clearance and the easy access of the dual-range 4WD transmission with the 4-mode switch in the centre console means that 4WD lock and low range is only a twist of the knob away. Whilst the optional 18” alloys look very smart, the standard 17” wheels are a smarter choice if you’re thinking of ever heading off road, which surely you would in this SUV.

独辟蹊径的结合200的离地间隙和方便的双程四轮传动与4模式开关在中控台意味着四驱车锁和低范围只是扭动旋钮了。虽然可选18 “合金看起来非常聪明,标准17 ”轮是一个明智的选择,如果您正在考虑的时候标题越野,这肯定会在这车。

Buying and owning

它跳动的框安全战线的缩写ABS树脂,开机片,楼宇自控系统,标准与稳定控制和牵引力控制系统。



At $36,990 the Grand Vitara 2.4L Prestige is well equipped and offers good value for money compared to similar priced compact SUVs. The combined fuel consumption of 9.9L per 100km is about right for an SUV of this size and weight, with our time behind the wheel seeing an average of 10.4L per 100km.

在三点六九九万美元的的Grand Vitara 2.4L信誉良好的装备和提供了良好的物有所值类似的价格相比,紧凑型越野车。综合燃料消耗百公里的9.9L左右的SUV的权利这个尺寸和重量,与我们这个时代的背后车轮看到平均10.4L百公里。

如果您计划项目的主要公路关闭,大维特拉是一个明智选择,因为它可能会采取进一步的压缩比其竞争软车。

However, if you’re a city slicker bear in mind there are other choices that are better suited to on-road driving.
