Softened new Suzuki Grand Vitara coming

A new Suzuki Grand Vitara is definitely on the way inside the next few years, but don’t expect the next-generation model to retain the current car’s comparatively hardcore off-road abilities.

New Suzuki Jimny Sierra to remain a hardcore ladder-frame 4x4

The confirmed successor to the much-loved Suzuki Jimny Sierra (current model pictured above) will retain the famed off-road ability and toughness, the company says.

Next-generation Subaru XV will help make small SUV sales great again

Subaru Australia believes this year’s modest decline in mainstream small SUV sales is a mere blip, with the company predicting double-digit growth in this segment through 2017 driven largely by its all-new XV crossover and the imminent Toyota C-HR. VFACTS figures show that small SUV sales at the affordable end of the market (sub $40,000) are down 1...
