2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara Facelift Launched In Malaysia, Aims To Be A Decade Old

The 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara has been launched in Malaysia. Before you start thinking this is an all-new model since the current, third-generation Grand Vitara was launched many years back in 2005, you are dead wrong. This is the second facelift after one in 2008 that will ensure that the Grand Vitara looks fresh for a few more years. It is now priced at RM 121,100 (OTR with insurance) in fully-imported-from-Japan form.

Most of the facelift changes are centered on the front, which has a redesigned grille and a restyled front bumper. The rear with a spare wheel housing soldiers on unchanged. The good thing is that the visual updates are significant enough and actually make the Grand Vitara look better. The new Gaia Bronze Pearl Metallic colour and new-look 17-inch alloys successfully add to the appeal of the car as well.

Less apparent is the new, lighter material, SSPP (Suzuki Super Polypropylene), that forms the underside of the front bumper. The upgraded seat fabric and door inserts are yet another subtle update. Mechanically, the Grand Vitara gets “brake override system”, a mechanism that makes sure that the brakes are given priority when both the brake and accelerator pedals are engaged at one time.
