On Styling

The 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara sports clean, if forgettable, lines. For the new year, the Grand Vitara receives a new front bumper design and grill and interior enhancements, including illuminated steering wheel controls, a sliding front center armrest, visor extenders, HVAC controls, an upgraded audio system, and updated cloth upholstery.

According to MyRide.com, the Suzuki Grand Vitara possesses "clean, hard lines that appeal to those who want refined, mainstream styling in their SUVs." Kelley Blue Book says the Suzuki Grand Vitara "applies traditional SUV styling cues to a scaled-down package with just the right rounding of contours to yield a clean and contemporary appearance." Motor Trend is substantially more impressed with this Suzuki 2009 exterior, calling it "arguably the best looking car in its class."

The 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara scores slightly above average—if you're looking to make a rugged statement.

According to Kelley Blue Book, "silver plastic accents on the base and XSport are replaced by leather and faux wood in the Luxury model," but to the tester at MotherProof, "the rear of cabin proved to be very basic." Edmunds says "flowing lines abound, with gauges taking up residence in a multilayered cluster with simulated aluminum trim." They add "the Limited's leather is very nice to look at."
