In a world of urban SUVs, the Suzuki Vitara offers real off-road capability. It's equipped with a two-speed transfer case, body-on-frame construction, and a suspension designed for the dirty stuff. Most of the other utilities in this class (Santa Fe, Escape, Tribute, RAV4) do not offer the equipment needed for real off-pavement adventures. Vitara is powered by a four-cylinder engine and comes in two-door convertible and four-door wagon styles. Grand Vitara features a spunky V6 and comes with the wagon body only. For 2002, Grand Vitara's aluminum V6 engine is improved with more power and quicker throttle response.
