Suzuki Grand Vitara 2016 – Exterior and Interior Changes
The New Suzuki Grand Vitara 2016 has a bulkier and slightly muscular exterior. It is made using the iV-4 concept. The “i” stands for individuality, the “V”-stands for vehicle whilst the “4”- denotes four wheel drive. This means that customers can turn the car to suit their own driving style as well as lifestyle. In addition to the iconic clamshell hood, customers have the option to customize their cars by doing more than just choosing a color but also choosing exterior parts that they feel will enhance the look of the vehicle.
Suzuki offers this new Vitara with either a two-door or four-door configuration. The two-door configuration is 4.21 meter long, 1.85 wide and has a height of 1.66m. The four-door option is slightly bigger and measures 4.51 in length, 1.81 meters in width and 1.69 meters in height.
The grille and bumpers are also larger to make the car look even more powerful and imposing from the outside. This also means that the led lights would be more than just powerful but will be slimmer to improve vision and enhance the “mean” exterior look. Taillights on the other hand are slightly elevated to complement the overall look of this SUV. The New Suzuki Grand Vitara 2016 switches to off-road driving with ease; all it takes to change to 4-WD is a turn of a dial.
