What's on this page

Suzuki Grand Vitara

Suzuki virtually pioneered the idea of the small SUV in Australia before the category really took off, offering a range of clever, rugged, reliable all-wheel drive wagons, and the Japanese brand is in the midst of a new age resurgence.

The Grand Vitara was launched in 2005 as a small, five-seat SUV, and that it still sells at least 100 units a month reflects the honest simplicity of the machine. It’s available as a three- or five-door in petrol and diesel.

Current prices range from $16,100 for the Grand Vitara Navigator (4x4) to $28,930 for the Grand Vitara Sports (4x4).​

This vehicle is also known as Suzuki Escudo.

  • What engine coolant should I use in my 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara?

    Many owners of Suzukis of this era are shifting from the original green-coloured coolant to the long-life blue type (believe it or not, engine coolants are broadly identifiable by colour these days). Make sure that whatever brand you buy is borate and silicate-free, as this is important for Japanese engines (European engines, in comparison, need Phosphate-free coolant).

    If you’re still unsure, you can buy coolant form a Suzuki dealership spare parts department and know that you’re getting the right product. One other tip; don’t mix coolants. Like oils, coolants are a sophisticated blend of base-product and additives and these formulations, when mixed, can cancel out some of the protection you’re paying for.
