The 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara stands out for its low price, off-road performance and exceptionally powerful engine options. Although it can't compete with the top crossovers in its class, it's the perfect off-roading vehicle that won't break the bank. The 2010 Grand Vitara can seat five comfortably and is available in four trims: base, Premium, XSport, and Luxury. The Grand Vitara is inexpensive for an off-road vehicle, which would lead you to believe that it will lack in power. This is not the case here.
The base model comes with a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine that makes 166-horsepower. The higher trim Xsport and Luxury are available with a 3.2-liter V6 that churns out 230-horsepower. Downside to the Grand Vitara is that EPA ratings are on the low side for a compact SUV.
