Benefits of Driving a 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Sport Utility Crossover
Because of its fully independent suspension and ladder frame design within a uni-body structure, Suzuki calls the Grand Vitara 'The Off-Road Athlete.' The solid chassis has been upgraded for 2009 for a more rugged performance. Safety features include anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, traction control, anti-skid system, curtain side airbags with rollover sensors, front side airbags and electronic stability control, to help prevent the loss of control of the vehicle. Towing capacity is 3,000 pounds with the V6 engine.
