Suzuki's Vitara Safari features a handy roof rack option for adventurers

Suzuki Launches Safari SUV Range

Three new Safari versions of Suzuki’s Vitara, Grand Vitara and Jimmy SUV models have been added to the New Zealand market lineup, and the vehicles are a great fit for adventuring in the Queenstown region.

The five-door Vitara Safari (pictured above) is distinguished by a smoked bonnet protector, black front bezels, side body mouldings, roof racks, special graphics and a rear interior cargo tray with rugged tread to prevent items slipping. An optional bike or snow attachment for the roof racks is also available to ensure all of the gear you need to explore Queenstown is easily transported!

Safety is prominent with the Vitara that includes ABS with EBD and brake assist, a brake override system, hill-hold assist on automatics and hill descent control on AWD models.

With its enduring styling and highly practical abilities, Jimny is Suzuki’s longest-running model, and makes a real statement in Safari mode with a front skid plate protector, stainless steel side steps and branded soft spare wheel cover. Two large and deep cargo trays ensure the rear load area is kept clean from wet, sandy and dirty items.

The compact Jimny is a genuine on and off-road SUV with a ladder-type, three-section frame to cope with rough terrain. This rigid chassis is complemented by eight body mounts and extensive noise reduction measures.

An optional bike or snow attachment for the roof racks is also available to ensure all of the gear you need to explore Queenstown is easily transported!

Suzuki’s larger 4.5 metre long 4WD Grand Vitara is available with the new Safari pack in either three-door or extended wheelbase five-door configuration. The Safari specification includes a front nudge bar, stainless steel side steps and a deep cargo tray to protect the rear interior.

Like Jimmy, the rugged Grand Vitara also has a built-in ladder frame construction with a monocoque body that increases rigidity and durability. Grand Vitara’s four-mode, four wheel drive system transmits power to all four wheels at all times and a switch in the centre control allows the driver to quickly and safely change between drive modes.

Meanwhile the larger Grand Vitara is comprehensively equipped with climate control air conditioning, cruise control, touchscreen infotainment, Bluetooth, satellite navigation and reversing camera. Six air bags, electronic stability programme (ESP) and ABS with brake assist are also standard.

The Suzuki Safari range starts from $20,990 plus ORC or $94 per week including a 3 year service plan on no deposit finance. Terms, conditions, fees and normal lending criteria apply.
