3rd Generation Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0L priced at RM 109,900 in Malaysia

Wow Wow Wow. Another great offer from Japanese car maker. Third Generation of Suzuki Grand Vitara is priced at RM 109,900 (OTR without insurance).

In terms of looks and performance, nothing much difference with the previous model launched in year 2005. The new Grand Vitara use the same 2.0 L engine as the previous model which can produces 140 hp and 183 Nm of torque. But this time, the Suzuki Grand Vitara comes with 4x2 WD instead of 4WD. The Grand Vitara will run the front 2WD under normal condition and turn to 4WD only when the condition is slippery and going uphill. The advantages of this is lower maintenance and fuel cost. This is a very good technology because most people who buy SUV only wants the style and height seating. They don't really need the 4WD which consumes more petrol. I don't think anybody will buy a SUV and expect to drive it through a jungle. That's really not the purpose of SUV anyway.

The only significant difference I noticed is the price tag. Previously, the Suzuki Grand Vitara was priced at RM 139,862 (OTR without insurance). With the sharp RM 30,000 price reduction, Suzuki Grand Vitara has become the most affordable and value for money Japanese SUV in Malaysia. You can't even get a Korean make with this price. One more thing, don't think that Suzuki is doing a clear stock promotion. This RM 109 K is for the all new 2007 Suzuki Vitara CBU from Japan.

Let's have a quick comparison of price tag with the same class SUV in Malaysia.

RM 108,957 - Kia Sportage 2.0 L
RM 109,900 - Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 L
RM 129,210 - Nissan X-Trail 2.0L
RM 143,820 - Honda C-RV 2.0 L
RM 198,001 - Toyota RAV4 2.0 L
* Prices are OTR without insurance

Japanese make selling at Korean price tag. Let's see who can beat this attractive offer. Nissan ?? Honda ?? or Toyota ??
