Suzuki's compact and sporty SUV makes alot of sense. It's
just about compact enough to fit in your pocket, but hauls
alot more fun than your average sedan without the hedonistic
SUV fuel expenditure. This 2-door convertible model brings
fresh-air right to the driver's seat experience as you fold
back the canvas top and rev it up. Along with the fresh-air
experience comes a fresh new look to the cabin for 2003.
Basically Suzuki has simplified the trims for this year
with two straightforward picks: rear 2-wheel drive, and
4-wheel drive both dressed with the same interior, exterior,
and under-the-hood features.
Standard interior features for the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 2-door
include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks,
power mirrors, AM/FM stereo with an in-dash CD, micron air
filtration system, automatic lighting, tilt steering wheel,
tachometer, and split-folding rear seat. The interior volume
of the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 2-door is 103.8 cubic-feet. Move
whomever and whatever you need.
The best exterior feature of the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 2-door
is the convertible part. A canvas folding top with removable
windows helps you cruise closer to the scenery. Other standard
exterior features of the Vitara include daytime running
lights, 16-inch sport-styled steel wheels, halogen headlamps,
and an easy-open tailgate.
Pop the hood and peruse a 2.0-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine
with 127 horsepower @ 6000 rpm, and 134 lb-ft of torque
@ 3000 rpm. You can choose a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic
transmission that gets an estimated 22/25 (city/hwy) mpg.
Suzuki has also included its zero-maintenance, self-adjusting,
two-stage metal timing chain that saves you hundreds down
the road, so you can pack on the miles with scarcely a second
thought. With the 4-wheel drive option, you will find a
shift-on-the-fly feature for added traction control the
moment any slippery situation arises. A five-link, coil-spring
rear suspension system helps to smooth the bumps. Go ahead
Safety and Security
Standard safety and security features of the 2003 Suzuki
Vitara 2-door convertible consist of second-generation dual
front airbags, height-adjustable shoulder belts, child seat
LATCH system, keyless remote entry, and a steel-reinforced
passenger compartment. Integrated front and rear crumple
zones reinsure impact safety. Power hydraulic vented disc
brakes are standard as well.
Three closing words for the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 2-Door Convertible:
Practical, Versatile, Fun.
2003 Suzuki Vitara 2-Door
2-Door has a removable soft top and room for four
-- a great combination for off-road sightseeing or
anybody who's done serious off road exploring will
tell you, the toughest terrain is always on the way
to the best campsites and most secluded swimming holes:
soft sand, rock crawling and technical climbs. How
can the four-wheel-drive Vitara get through when some
others can't? Because in low range at low speeds,
special drive ratios keep the Vitara's engine spinning
comfortably in the heart of its powerband and the
engine torque is multiplied to keep the wheels turning.
Single range all-wheel-drive systems don't have the
right gear ratios for very slow speeds, so their engines
lug down to low revs and power fades. When the going
gets tough, these systems simply can't keep going.
Vitara 2-Door is available in Platinum Silver Metallic,
Satin Black, Victory Red (all with a black canvas
top); with the Ivy Green Metallic exterior color,
the canvas color is tan.
