Suzuki Grand Vitara updated for 2013

The popular Suzuki Grand Vitara receives a mild facelift for 2013 with new front and rear bumpers, lightly revised interior and a cleaner 1.9-litre diesel engine. Starting price of £15,995.

The new bumpers are more angular, with new front fog lamps, and the 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels have a new design. Haters of puncture repair systems will love the move to a proper spare wheel – in this case a temporary use 16-inch spare wheel with 225/70 mounted on the rear door.New seat trims and a 6.1 inch touchscreen Colour Navigation System also reinvigorate the interior of the SZ5 range-topper. The infotainment system now has CD, radio, SD card, media player compatibility, and USB/Bluetooth music streaming/phone connectivity.

The 1.9 DDiS models have had the emissions control system revised, resulting in a CO2 decrease from 179 g/km to 174 g/km – which means the VED band for the 1.9 DDiS engine has been reduced by one band to H. Fuel consumption improves from 41.5 to 42.8mpg.
