The first compact SUV in the world was built by Suzuki 24 years ago. Its first Vitara created a new market for vehicles that offer true off-road performance with responsive and enjoyable on-road performance.
Since that time, the SUV evolved to cope with the rising demand for attractive and versatile 4x4s that offer a good performance on the road as well as off it. Grand Vitara continues to be a true off-roader with its switchable low / high ratio Four Wheel Drive system.
