Suzuki Unwraps Refreshed Grand Vitara for the UK Market


Suzuki may have pulled the plug on its automotive operations in America, but in Europe, it's still alive (well, at least for now), thank you very much.Following the release of the updated 2013 Jimny last month, Suzuki has now given a mild facelift to its aging Grand Vitara that goes on sale in the United Kingdom this month as a 2013 model with prices starting from £15,995 for SZ3 1.6 litre 3 door version.
First seen at the Moscow International Motor Show this summer, the 2013 Grand Vitara gains a restyled fascia with a new grille sporting a more angular design, a new bumper with revised foglamps, headlight black accents on 5 door SZ5 models, and new 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels (depending on the model).
Suzuki says it has also listened to its customers and has added a temporary use 16 inch spare wheel with 225/70 tire on the tailgate, which increases the length by 200mm (7.8 inches) on five door models and 170mm (6.7 inches) on three door models.
Revisions to the interior include new design seat trims for all variants, while the SZ5 5 door models are now fitted with a 6.1 inch touchscreen Colour Navigation System as standard.
For 2013, the 1.9-liter DDiS diesel engine sports an upgraded emissions control system that helps reduce CO2 emissions from 179 g/km to 174 g/km and improve combined fuel economy to 42.8mpg from 41.5mpg UK. As a result, the VED band for the Grand Vitara 1.9 DDiS has been reduced by one band to H.
