    Default Vitara vs Creta vs CX3

    Good day,

    My wife plans to buy a new vehicle (small to medium SUV). I would appreciate owner feedback regarding reliability, consumption, owner satisfaction, etc and dealer service regarding the following vehicles:
    Suzuki Vitara, Hyundai Creta (petrol) and Mazda CX3. Thank you in advance. The vehicle will be used as a daily run about as well as the occasional long distance trips (camping holidays, etc), so boot space is important.

    Just be aware the Creta lacks some basic safety features.

    The CX3 is an incredible sorted package. If space isnít an issue, itís the one Iíd pick.

    Ons het laas jaar al 3 en die Honda toesbestuur toe ons vir my vrou n nuwe motor gesoek het en het op die ou einde op die Mazda CX 3 Individual Plus besluit.

    Ons het tot datum nou al 10K Km met hom gedoen en was nog nie n dag spuit gewees nie. Dit is regtig n baie lekker voertuig met goeie branstof verbruik vir n 2.0L engin.
    Moenie leef met die droom "ek gaan dit doen as ek eendag aftree" want dit mag dalk nie gebeur.

    Ludi go test drive the Grand Vitara

    It's as old as the mountains and not very fuel efficient, but it's as tough as nails, very practical and extremely capable off road. The CX3 and Creta will get horribly stuck on obstacles that the Grand Vitara does not even notice.

    If you like the old school no nonsense approach, the Grand Vitara has that in spades.
