The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara is an old-style compact SUV that favors hauling and off-roading at the detriment of on-the-road performance. Much less of a cute-ute than it used to be, the 2008 Jeep Liberty defines SUV-lites by not being one.
