South Africa – Suzuki Grand Vitara Summit gets extra features


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Mild exterior and feature add-ons for Suzuki’s flagship SUV.

Suzuki Auto South Africa has updated the looks and features of its range-topping Grand Vitara ‘Summit’ variant, to add a dose of premium appeal to the package.

The facelift includes a redesigned grille and a new set of 18-inch wheels that are both finished in dark silver. Also part of the exterior facelift is a new addition to the available exterior colors called “Premium Silver”.

Exterior changes come through a new grille, alloy wheels and silver paint option.

Inside, to differentiate it with the rest of the Grand Vitara range, the Summit variant features gold trim on the steering wheel, gearshift lever, instrument cluster surrounds, center console, and around the HVAC outlets. The featured gold trim contrasts the dark cloth upholstery of the car.

Other standard equipment include remote central locking, electric windows, cruise control, and a four-speaker radio/CD player. Safety features such as dual front airbags and ABS with EBD and EBA are also offered as standard.
