The 2003 Suzuki 4-door Vitara is not your average sedan,
nor your average SUV. It's a sensible compact-SUV. A little
more rugged than the Vitara 2-door convertible, Suzuki's
4-door Vitara sacrifices nothing for style and a savvy ride.
With varying configurations to play with, interior volume
is a roomy 112.6 cubic-feet. Pack everyone and everything
everything but the kitchen sink that is.
As with the Vitara 2-door convertible and Grand Vitara,
the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 4-door hard-top lets you choose from
two basic trims: rear 2-wheel drive, and 4-wheel drive both
dressed with the same interior, exterior, and under-the-hood
Standard interior treats for the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 4-door
include air conditioning, micron air filtration system,
AM/FM stereo with in-dash CD player, automatic lighting,
map lights, variable-intermittent wiper control, tilt steering
wheel, tachometer, split-folding rear seat, and cargo cover.
More power to you with standard power windows, power door
locks, power mirrors, a 12-volt power socket.
16-inch sport-styled steel wheels come standard, but you
can opt for aluminum wheels. Other standard features include
handy roof rails, rear wiper/washer, and multi-reflection
Under the hood of the 2003 Suzuki Vitara 4-door is a 2.0-liter
DOHC 4-cylinder engine with 127 horsepower @ 6000 rpm, and
134 lb-ft of torque @ 3000 rpm. Fuel mileage on the 2-wheel
drive 5-speed manual takes you an estimated 420 miles with
23/26 (city/hwy) mpg, while the 4-wheel drive 4-speed automatic
gets 22/25 (city/hwy) mpg. Further along, find a zero-maintenance,
self-adjusting, two-stage metal timing chain designed to
save you money down the road. MacPherson strut front suspension
and a five-link, coil-spring rear suspension system helps
to smooth the bumps. Choose the 4-wheel drive model, and
find yourself exploring off-road opportunities with 'shift-on-the-fly'

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.
colors for Vitara 4-Door models for 2003 are Bright
White, Platinum Silver Metallic, Satin Black, Cranberry
Metallic, Indigo Blue Metallic and Ivy Green Metallic.
