The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara is a bargain of a crossover for someone looking for a feature-packed, off-roadable vehicle that's not too concerned with cargo space. Excellent fuel economy and a comfortable cabin are a big contrast to the 2012 GMC Terrain's boxy shape.
