One of the most impressive things about the 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara are the safety features that come standard on all models, including standard side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system with traction control, and antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution.
How does the 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara measure up against the competition? Very well, especially at the base price. The Grand Vitara offers as much or more off-road capability of any small SUV except the Jeep Liberty and the Nissan Xterra, its powerplant measures up well against other base models in the class, and its interior is among the roomiest available.
