The reversing camera system has been added to Kizashi Prestige ($34,990-$36,990) and Sport AWD ($39,990) models as well as the Grand Vitara Sport ($31,490-$33,490) and Prestige ($38,990) variants, integrating into the 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen positioned in the cars’ centre stack.
The rear-view camera joins the cars’ comprehensive infotainment system, which features Garmin satellite navigation, voice control, Bluetooth phone connectivity with audio streaming, an SD card slot, AUX and USB inputs and a conventional CD player and radio.
The vehicles otherwise carry over their existing specifications. The Kizashi features a 131kW/230Nm 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, while the Grand Vitara scores a mildly detuned version of the same motor, producing 122kW and 225Nm.
To the end of October, Suzuki Australia has sold 2837 Grand Vitara SUVs (an increase of 16.7 per cent over the same period in 2011) and 905 Kizashi mid-sized sedans (down 36.6 per cent).
