Let’s look for changes in the exterior and interior of the new 2018-2019 Suzuki Grand Vitara, which received the prefix FL after restyling.

Let’s start with the fact that the crossover in Russia is sold in two versions bodywork, three-door and five-door station wagon variants. Accurately indicate the external dimensions of both vehicles, a reservation at once that the length of the data is given to the coffer into account for fixing the spare wheel on the tailgate.

When choosing a car do not forget to take into account the testimony of geometric cross, especially if you are going to travel on country roads.
Regarding the changes in appearance just say a couple of sentences. Updated crossovers have received from designers, heads of the exterior, the new liner false radiator grille adorned with a pair of horizontal bars with an extension in the central part to accommodate the 2018-2019 Suzuki logo, powerful front bumper with the “house” in the form of a curved beam, emphasizing the lower duct from the top, and in turn from the bottom contrastly intake isolated plate under the metal. Changed optic headlamps, foglights housed in wells, apron appeared on the edge of the bumper.
The rear part has remained virtually unchanged – a large tailgate opens to the side, vertical lights. Outside of the Japanese crossover has already become a classic design, large bloated wheel arches, large doors, a flat line window sill and the roof line. The rigor, confidence, identity – in one word car is not flirting with her owner.

Changes interior cosmetic, materials used in the decoration of clearly higher quality steel.

In the process of updating the technical specifications of the Japanese crossover is not subjected to the special intervention on the part of the company’s engineers. Fully independent front suspension with MacPherson struts and rear axle mnogoryichazhka (five arms).
Wheel drive transmission with locking center differential and the availability of a downshift is a worthy equipment for the Grand Vitara, and not only inaccessible to many crossover competitors, but even for cars that are attributable to the SUV by some manufacturers.
Under the hood is the familiar dorestaylingovoy models of petrol engines:

  • The initial 1.6-liter petrol (107 hp) with 5 speed manual, is only installed on the three-door version of the car. Motor is clearly weak and reluctant to crossover car accelerates to 100 km / h in 14.4 seconds, top speed 160 km / h is achievable. Fuel consumption averages 8,2-8,5 liters.
  • The following 2-liter 140 strong with 5 MCP (or Automatic transmission 4 automatic) is set to pyatidverku and allows you to accelerate to the first “hundreds” of 10.6 (11.2) seconds and reach a maximum speed of 175 (170) km / h, the engine uses mixed-mode 8.4 (8.9) liters of gasoline, and in urban areas of more than 11 liters of fuel.

In real terms the average fuel consumption is 10-12 liters of gasoline.

Sea trials, reviews of the owners, and independent test drive with confidence suggest a stable behavior of the crossover on the road with asphalt and off paved roads. A car with a stiffer suspension, responsive steering, but when traveling at speeds above 120 km / h driving stability becomes worse, a crossover requires constant attention, and fuel consumption increases significantly. With a light off-road car handles effortlessly, for heavy road sections is a lockable differential and permanent four-wheel drive, so that if handled adroitly, with the gas pedal and the experience of driving on the roads, our hero can boost rather complicated plots. Do not just forget about the speakers at the bottom of the individual elements of the car in the face of the transfer case, the exhaust system and about the fragile front and rear bumper.
