Among the numerous small-SUV segment vehicles in the UK, the Suzuki Grand Vitara has clearly held its stead in the market for a veritable period of time. Amidst the plentiful reasons cited for this state of affairs, one factor which clearly gets mentioned practically every time is the off road features on offer on the Suzuki Grand Vitara, which are both many in number as well as all of very high quality.
Accordingly, in this article, let us specifically look at some of the off road capabilities of the Grand Vitara which has driven (pun intended!) the vehicle to the top spot as far as customer preference among small SUVs is concerned.
A major off road aspect cited by customers and reviewers of the vehicle alike has been the fact that the Suzuki Grand Vitara is in fact more of a soft roader in the sense that it optimally and quite intuitively combines the off road assisting stiff ladder design frames that it has, with its unique monocoque build whereby even while going off road, riders do not feel the kind of discomfort which is commonly felt in other vehicles of its ilk.
In other words, when it comes to ride quality, particularly with regard to being off road, the Suzuki Grand Vitara is perhaps the best on offer in this segment, ahead of most other vehicles in this category.
It is true that not all vehicles in this segment are actually able to offer the kind of genuine 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) experience which the Suzuki Grand Vitara is able to offer. For instance, we have typically seen that when it comes to most of the other 4 Wheel Drives in this segment, the majority by far of the drive goes to the wheels in front, with only a small portion actually going to the rear wheels, say in cases where there is a possible wheel slip such as while going over loose gravel surfaces or an extremely muddy path.
But in the case of the Suzuki Grand Vitara, the proportion of wheel drive is precisely divided 50:50 between the front and rear wheels. This clearly gives a very smooth ride and an overall ride quality which is fundamentally many notches superior to that seen in other vehicles in this segment.
The low range setting is another superb feature of the Suzuki Grand Vitara which allows for a much better off road experience as compared to others in the category since it ensures that the vehicle has much better control over itself, even at slow speeds.
The Suzuki Grand Vitara comes with a unique Hill Decent Control feature which essentially allows the speed of the vehicle to be regulated as it makes its decent down from higher ground. Again, this is a facet of the Suzuki Grand Vitara which adds to its off road capability, in a really big way.
Clearly there are a number of off road capabilities unique to the Suzuki Grand Vitara which makes it an ideal buy for all the adventure and thrill seeking enthusiasts out there!
