Wake up, lit­tle Suzi

Wheels (Australia) - - Head To Head -

The 1997 SF Forester was one of the ear­li­est car­based com­pact SUV op­tions, com­ing some three years af­ter the trail­blaz­ing Toy­ota RAV4, which was a clever con­coc­tion of Corolla, Camry and Cel­ica com­po­nents, re­bod­ied for rugged­chic. In the same year, Honda launched the first CR-V, and the class was of­fi­cially born. How­ever, his­to­ri­ans will rightly point out that the Suzuki Vi­tara of 1988 is the grandaddy of them all, even though it was perched on a sep­a­rate chas­sis.
