The base Grand Vitara comes with front and side airbags, antilock brakes and stability control.
Easily manages in all types of terran without need for exessive steering or shifting of gears.
The package even on a base unit is more than adequate for the average driver. This includes cruse control, a decent music system, OK climate control and usaeable interior lighting.
When the SUV was first seen by co-workers and friends they complemented the styling and functionality of the exterior design. For my part it is clean and uncluttered and looks good as a bonus!
The vehicle just seems solid to me. No creaks and growns or rattles and thumps. The wax from the dealership still looks very good when the vehicle is freshly washered even after a full year and more of driving it. The pearl black paint is very nice.
