Boustead Sdn Bhd is displaying the new 2.4 litre version of the Suzuki Vitara at the Mall Gadong. The recent model available on the market was a 2.0 litre 2wd. Now the new Grand Vitara comes with a much powerful engine plus a 4wd layout.
Under the rugged exterior lies a 169PS 2.4litre petrol engine. The unit makes full use of advanced technical and design features to deliver improved power and torque, with only modest adjustments in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The Grand Vitara is equipped with ESP®, part of a company policy to introduce the system progressively on all forthcoming new models and model facelifts. ESP® uses selective wheel braking and controls engine output as necessary to stabilise the vehicle if it detects understeer or oversteer situations which could possibly result in total loss of control. Another new feature is the ventilated rear disc brakes and extra shock absorbing elements around the bonnet, wings and front bumper to reduce the injury to pedestrians.
Both the exterior and interior have been given a mild facelift. On the outside there is a revised front end treatment and new door mirrors with integrated turn indicators, while inside the cabin chrome and wood-effect inlays add extra touches of quality, together with improvements to the design and operation of some of the dashboard controls, including a new multi-information display and revised air conditioning control panel.
Wood inlays can be seen near the gear knob section
The 2.0Litre Suzuki Grand Vitara cost $34,575 (OTR)
The 2.4Litre Suzuki Grand Vitara cost $43K
