Lit­tle car that grew

THE Vi­tara name is re­spected among off-road­ers and it has a rep­u­ta­tion for go­ing places its size sug­gests it shouldn’t. Suzuki was sell­ing the Vi­tara 4WD long be­fore other mak­ers got wind of smaller off-road­ers that ap­pealed to city-bound trekkers.

Early Vi­taras were ba­sic lit­tle ve­hi­cles, but they grew in size and so­phis­ti­ca­tion and be­came the Grand Vi­tara and the larger XL-7.

Small start: the early Vi­tara, pop­u­lar with off-road­ers, was the fore­run­ner of the Suzuki Grand Vi­tara XL-7.
