The 2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara might be the last edition of the famous SUV. The Japanese company is preparing the new generation, and when it happens, the vehicle will get a new name. Well, we still don’t know how it is going to be called, and the change is not confirmed yet. The good thing is that Suzuki is working on the new model, no matter what name it is going to carry. But, until that happens, Grand Vitara will have another run.
So, with the new generation just around the corner, the upcoming 2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara is not going to introduce the major novelties. Still, one of the last edition before the redesign could use a few new details and test the market. Well, Suzuki needs to work on its flagship model, since its rivals, Toyota Rav4, and Hyundai Tucson have a huge advantage.
2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara Engines
A pair of gasoline units and a diesel engine are the drivetrain lineup for the upcoming SUV. It belongs to the compact class, so Grand Vitara doesn’t need a huge displacement. The smallest engine in the squad is a 1.4-liter petrol mill, that is capable to produce 140 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque. The economical unit is also part of the powertrain system of new Swift. Although bigger, the 1.6-liter four-cylinder drivetrain creates less power. With outputs of 110 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque, it is perfect for city drive. A 1.6-liter diesel unit is producing 105 or 120 horsepower. It replaces an old 1.9-liter engine.
The latest news from the automotive world is pointing to a partnership between Suzuki and Toyota. Two Japanese giants joined forces to create more hybrid and electric models. In this case, the 2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara will use its own shell, while Toyota will help its company develop a new drivetrain. Toyota is already a leader in this segment, and the company prepares its Rav4 hybrid for a debut in the US. Part of the new system will be borrowed by the new Grand Vitara. Specs and prices will be available next year.
The 2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara is not a premium model. But still, it offers enough excitement and features to make your ride joyful and safe. Standard equipment includes EBD, ABS, vehicle stability control, parking sensors, and hill assist option. Also, there are touchscreen display and a USB port for better connectivity. Keyless entry and Bluetooth are standard, as well as the welcome light, cruise control, and leather steering wheel.
2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Suzuki Grand Vitara will arrive early next year. Since the company is preparing a new generation, there won’t be too much excitement about the upcoming vehicle. However, the crossover SUV is still one of the most popular in the markets where it appears, mostly because of its price. The new Vitara is not coming to the USA, but outside this market, it achieves excellent sales. The price starts at around $15,000 (13,500 euros). Metallic color adds $500, and all-wheel drive 2,000 euros.
