The new Suzuki Grand Vitara 2024 is here, as many fans predicted. It isn’t just going to be a bigger version of the current Vitara. It will also be more luxurious. The crossover is very popular in India. Grand Vitara was denied by bosses in other markets that have large fan bases. The vehicle will not be available in Australia, for example. The 2023 YM will be on sale in India. It will then appear in other markets during the 2024 season.
The 2024 Suzuki Grand Vitara is bigger than the crossover standard. The new vehicle measures 7 inches long and is also taller and wider. Grand Vitara has an additional gap under the body. We’ll have to wait and see if it will be equipped with off-road gear. The SUV features a host of novelties, including advanced technology. Some of these features will be seen on the new Suzuki Swift. A hybrid system is also installed under the hood. This is yet another innovation by the Japanese automaker.
2024 Suzuki Grand Vitara Preview
The automaker has brought back an iconic logo. It is a good thing to draw attention to something when it’s “Grand”. Grand Cherokee, for example. The 2024 Suzuki Grand Vitara will not be its competitor. The Japanese manufacturer has instead tested it on a very small market. We know that it will be sold in India. Fans in Pacific Asia also expect to see this new model in their showrooms. The Australian department has written off the debut of this model in Australia.
Dimensions and Upgrades
The 2024 Suzuki Grand Vitara is 170 mm longer than the standard Vitara. The 2024 Suzuki Grand Vitara is wider (20 mm), and taller (35) than the standard Vitara. The wheelbase is also longer (2.66 m as opposed to 2.5 m). This also means that there is more space inside the cabin.
The new SUV will not have three rows of seating. The Grand Vitara will have advanced technology that makes it more luxurious than the Vitara standard. Although the Indian debut provided some clues, packages may vary depending on the market. The SUV will have the largest driver’s display. The head-up display and panoramic sunroof were shown during the debut, but they may be optional features. Grand Vitara is available with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a wireless charger pad. It also comes in higher-grade models. The SUV is worthy of the “Grand”, as it indicates a higher-end position than the Vitara standard.
The new vehicle will not only bring advanced technology to the cockpit but also to the engine. In India, buyers can choose from two hybrid options for the 2024 Grand Vitara. Other markets may have different configurations. The 1.5-liter petrol engine is paired with an electric motor for improved fuel efficiency. Suzuki claims that this system consumes 3.7 liters per 100km or 63 miles per gallon in US measurements.
The outputs will not be spectacular, but it is still quite amazing. The CVT acts as a power router, while the other setup uses a six-speed standard automatic gearbox. A 1.5-liter engine provides the base for this hybrid package. The MHEV model is more powerful, but it also uses more fuel. Even so, the 5l/100km (47 mpg), is still more than any crossover available in the US. All-wheel drive can be ordered as an option. It is true that it reduces the efficiency of the drivetrain, but still produces stunning results.
Standard Vitara comes with two engines: a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine and a turbocharged 1.4-liter unit. Grand Vitara will not use them because hybrid engines are more fuel-efficient. Fans who don’t like electric support may be able to choose a more classic option.
The 2024 Suzuki Grand Vitara will be one of many new models we can expect from the Japanese automaker. The Vitara will also be updated mid-cycle, but this won’t be seen until the Swift hatchback and S-Cross crossover are released. Suzuki has developed both vehicles on the same platform.
The Japanese company has started electrifying their cars. The first hybrids have been released, but that’s just the beginning. Some EV concept cars have been around for a while. The time is right for a breakthrough.
