The Suzuki Vitara has gone through quite a few transformations, from a chunky compact SUV to “the Grand”, then this bizarre shape and now turbo-power for its mid-life facelift…
The iconic spiel
Ford Mustang, Ferrari F40, Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. All of these are legends in their own right and will get you plenty of attention but if you need a little more – right now I guarantee it – just get yourself the brand-new Suzuki Jimny. Our test car’s black stickers on crazy lumo-green-yellow paint can probably help as well.
On Wednesday morning at the crack of dawn, Suzuki South Africa waved off a group of intrepid explorers on an epic 4 000 km road trip to Mount Elgon in Kenya.
Prettigheid teen ‘n bekostigbare prys!
Met die grysheid kom die wysheid! Een van hierdie wyshede is dat groter lank al nie meer beter is nie, dis net hier en daar waar ‘n ryk Amerikaner dit nog werklik glo. Of, ongelukkig, party van ons landgenote ook!
The cheerful combo
Cars can be so boring. White and silver boxes stuck in a slow and endless march to work, seas of grey metal in a dark multi-story office car park with the odd red or yellow specimen parked under a sign proclaiming “Reserved for Marketing”. Suzuki certainly recognized this with the launch of their brand-new Vitara.
The polished newbie
Oh goody. For once, I don’t have to think of anything clever to start a review because Suzuki just lent us one of their new SX4’s. That means this review will be no good to you if you’re not familiar with the old model because my better half actually owns a 2010 SX4 and we felt an immediate urge to compare the two.
