Maruti Suzuki India Limited, the country’s largest passenger car manufacturer, introduced a brand new version of its popular high end SUV – Grand Vitara.
The new Grand Vitara 2.4 comes reloaded with a 2.4 litre VVT (Variable Valve Timing) engine that delivers a maximum power of 163.5 bhp @ 6000 rpm and a torque of 225 NM @ 4000 rpm. The VVT engine on the new Grand Vitara 2.4 delivers a balanced mix of power and efficiency.
An All-time, 4-mode, 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) continues to ensure effective control across terrains. Disc brakes in the rear wheels, that ensure superior braking, provide additional safety dimension to the Grand Vitara 2.4.
The new Grand Vitara 2.4 is packed with many new features that add style and a bold look. The interior display in the car has been enhanced with a new Multi Information Display (MID) providing easy to read and accurate vehicle information like Cruising range, Average speed and instantaneous fuel consumption, besides “low-fuel” warning. All these add up to enhanced user convenience and driving comfort.
The stylish new front grille and front bumper gives the Grand Vitara a sleeker look while the 17 inch alloy wheels add dynamism.
A centre speaker coupled with a 6-CD changer brings in a surround-sound effect. Improved acoustics and a redesigned power train helps in lower noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels. A sliding centre-console armrest adds to passenger comfort.
