    Default Grand Vitara specials

    I've owned my FJ almost a year now it's a super vehicle it can do anything long distance touring lots of space and offroad anywhere but as most know it's thirsty hehe. Did a Kruger trip 4600km done and R 10 000 later just on fuel..

    We planning to start family wich the FJ is fine for but wanna see if I can save some money here and there..

    I'm lookinG at the GV Summit wich has good price at moment my only issue is why ? Don't want to buy a new vehicle and then they release a new GV in 6 months I know the vitara is on the way but I still want low range and offroad cpapabilitY just lighter on da fuel

    Sorry for long message

    What is your L/100km with the FJ..? The Grand Vitara is a nice vehicle but can be a bit thirsty as well depending on how heavy your foot is and if you go for the manual or the auto.

    while the gv summit is an awesome car it MIGHT not meet the less fuel consumption requirement... at least not enough for you to probably feel it was worth it at the end of the day.

    Hoe vergelyk die jeep en die fj se brandstofverbruik?

    Meest kry so rondom 12l/100km op die auto en so 10-11l/100km met die manual. Dit is natuurlik stock. Ek sal aanbeveel om mooi te gaan kyk na die syfers op fuelly vir meer akkurate syfers van die verskillende voertuie se brandstofverbruik.

    Hansie Volgens my is Fj so 1-2 litre ligter per 100km

    Die Jeep se onboard computer het my so 14L/100km gewys

    Dankie Zen

    As die Auto my 12l/100km gaan gee is dit nie rerig moeite were nie. Ek love die Subaru XV ook baie Maar ek bang ek gaan my gat skop en later weer n kar soek met Low Range

    Ja the zooks are a bit thirsty sometimes . I get about 10l/100km for town driving but mine is a manual and I have a light foot most of the time. Long distance you will always feel it in the wallet but some would say the piece of mind of having a very capable vehicle with you is worth it.

    Would be worth it if it was more in the 8L/100km :-)

    How many 4x4s with low range can give us those kinds of consumption figures though..? Maybe settle for a diesel Renault Duster..?

    Hey I was just throwing out some options But in all honesty when the elusive creature known as the lesser spotted fuel efficient 4x4 rears it head I'm sure it will have many an enthusiasts attention.

    details on the new vitara are sparse, but definitly interested to see what engine options it will come with and what 4x4 system it will have.

    a nice 2l tdi and proper 4x4 like the gv will make it a segment leader I reckon.
    hopefully they have gotten rid of the 1980s gearboxes now.

    Nope. If I remember correctly it has no low range and that long nose doesn't look like it will be doing much 4x4ing. I suspect there will still be a "Grand" Vitara somewhere in their lineup in the future(At least I hope so).

    Fuel consumption with the auto is not good at all. The manual from what I have seen is better, there is a consumption thread here somewhere with the details. Just do the math, consumption is not a GV's strong point.

    Don't buy an auto GV to save fuel.... That is unlikely to happen. Manual 2.4 is light on juice for a permanent 4x4.

    Yes, the GV 2.4 Auto will give you about 13l/100km combined. With a gentle foot you might do about 12.8l/km combined.
