What's a good replacement SUV for the Suzuki SX4 with off-road capabilities?

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Sep 2017

Most small SUVs are all-wheel drive, as is your SX4, which means it's an on-demand four-wheel drive system rather than a traditional one. If the SX4 does what you want you could try a Suzuki Grand Vitara, or a Nissan X-Trail.

Best car to drive around Australia?

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Mar 2017

You first need to decide the level of off-roading you will be doing because that will determine if you need a four-wheel drive or you only need an all-wheel drive SUV. From what you have told us I suspect that an SUV, such as a Kia Sorento, Toyota Kluger, or a Nissan X-Trail would be the best all-round vehicle for you. All of those would fit your budget, they will all go off-road to a reasonable degree, and they're all reliable. The Mitsubishi Triton is a hard-riding ute, which I don't think is what you want, but the Suzuki Grand Vitara is a good vehicle and would also fit your needs.

Best mid-size car for city and camping?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Nov 2016

You need to simplify your needs and wants. Most, if not all new cars have the sort of features you want. The more pressing issue is the choice of SUV or hatch. While a hatch might be best for your city needs, it probably wouldn't suit your camping needs, so I would rule that out and focus on a compact SUV. Of all the models you have looked at I would select the Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Are autos or manuals best for being flat towed?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Aug 2016

I've done some checking and no one recommends flat towing with an automatic. You really need to totally disconnect the drive system, which means a manual. Many people choose a Suzuki Vitara as it is light and relatively cheap secondhand and also has maximum flexibility when you get to your destination.

You will get great value and a classy car in the Suzuki Grand Vitara. The CR-V also goes well and is slightly better value than a RAV4.

Best car for legroom, seating, towing and reliability?

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Aug 2016

From my experience, the Grand Vitara has the best reputation for reliability and for you it ticks the boxes. Next would be the Honda CR-V, then the Dualis with the ASX definitely last.
