New and Used Suzuki Vitara for Sale Philippines
The Suzuki Vitara's popularity back in the 80s was unmistakable, and could almost go toe-to-toe with the big hair craze and Chuck Taylors that were so popular during that time. It's true that the original Suzuki Vitara is one of those cars that started the small SUV craze that's common today, yet despite its iconic presence that time, this SUV was discontinued in 1998 due to declining sales. The good news is that Suzuki has revived this car with a subtle bravado that only a Vitara can deliver.
This welcome upgrade abandons most of the memories of its 80s predecessor in exchange for a more modern design, high-tech equipment, and dynamic engine. Gone were the garish graphics, boxy, clunky chassis, jeep-like silhouette, and wide wheels that made it look uncool near the end of the decade. Suzuki has also switched it form a proper "off-roader" to a more stylish "crossover", sort of like Range Rover’s Evoque, -- but with better and more advanced equipment.
What it retains, however, is its agile and responsive body, with still an impressive fuel-saving capacity both from diesel and petrol options. Those who love to combine versatility, style, value, and safety in one car will surely like Vitara. Now known as the Grand Vitara or Suzuki Escudo (in other countries), this rugged vehicle's fresh look has impressive off- and on- road capabilities, thanks to its McPherson Strut and Rear multi-link suspension. Suzuki has made sure that the Grand Vitara also has enough space, style and comfort for everyone to enjoy, without losing its flexibility to negotiate the Metro streets and rough terrain with equal fervor. The most recent model in the Philippines was introduced in 2014, although a new, 2016 model has been launched in other countries like North America, Australia, and Europe. Crossovers are a popular choice among motorists today, so we're not surprised that Suzuki Vitara goes head-to-head with some of its rivals like the Mazda’s CX-3 and Honda’s HR-V.
