The Suzuki Grand Vitara Special Edition SZ-T has plenty of extras to entice shoppers to open their wallets. Consider the specification, for starers. Features include the: new eighteen-inch alloys, unique contrasting seat fabric, and the silver coloured roof rails and bonnet side vents. These elevate this workhorse above the model it is based on – the high-end 1.9DDiS. This 4x4 also has a tailgate mounted spare wheel, cruise control, and keyless entry and start systems. Nice features, especially as the SZ-T only costs £22,315.

The Suzuki Grand Vitara Special Edition SZ-T produces 129bhp, which propels it to 62mph in 13.2 seconds and on to 106mph. Not particularly fast then, but fast enough for many. On the plus side, this diesel-powered mile-muncher has sensible running costs considering its class. Expect to average 41.5mpg and to return 47.1mpg on the extra- urban cycle. Emissions are 179g/km, placing this five-speed manual in road tax band I/ £210. As such, it shares the honour of being the most fuel efficient and least polluting trim.

Further strengths include its impressive build quality that feels reassuringly Japanese. The handling is pleasing too, although it prefers to waft along than race. Off-road this 4x4 feels competent, but it suits modest mounds more than monstrous mountains. Furthermore the ride is fairly comfortable, there is enough room for five occupants, and it has a respectable 398-litre boot. That is marginally larger than the Volkswagen Golf Hatchback. Happy days.
