Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Suzuki is expanding its UK lineup of the Grand Vitara model with the addition of a 1.6L petrol and 1.9L diesel engine to the three-door model range. If you remember, the facelifted Grand Vitara model range with the 166 hp 2.4-liter engine was launched in October 2008.

The 1.6-liter gasoline unit which is linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox, makes 106 hp at 5,900 rpm and a peak torque of 145Nm at 4,100 rpm offering a 0 to 62mph (100km/h) sprint time of 14.4 sec and a top speed of 99mph or 159km/h.

The entry-level petrol model, which comes with a standard four-wheel drive system, achieves a combined fuel economy of 34.5mpg UK or 8.2lt/100km in the European cycle.

The 1.9-liter DDiS diesel unit produces an output of 129 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 300Nm at 2,200 rpm.

The four-wheel drive model accelerates from standstill to 62mph or 100km/h in 12.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 106mph (170km/h) while returning 40.4mpg UK or 7.0lt/100km in the combined European cycle.

Similar to the rest of the models in the range, these two additions feature a revised front end treatment and new door mirrors with integrated turn indicators.

Changes to the interior include a revised air conditioning control panel and a new multi-information display. In the UK, the 1.6-liter three-door manual is priced from £13,600 while the 1.9 DDiS diesel starts from £16,200.
