Yesterday Suzuki had announced that Japanese-market refreshed Suzuki Escudo will be bowing in the year 2013, sporting new fascia on the front & wheels & dropping the tire rear spare carrier, amongst the other tweaks. American staff of PR of Suzuki recently confirmed that they will be giving us updates in form of 2013 Suzuki Grand Vitara that is face lifted.
Suzuki says that official announcement will soon be made later in this month, but had confirmed that Grand Vitara would be offered in model without the external spare tire & extra side mirror. Updated look is designed for making long-in-tooth Grand Vitara look more like cross over instead of traditional SUV, but we assume that Suzuki is not ditching case of transfer & gearing of low-range which really sets it apart from ute cute set.
The customers of Japan will be getting special edition X-Adventure for the Escudo, which has packages features like stability control, sun roof, wheels of 18-inches, & an interior having red contrasting stitching on seats of suede-look & leather-wrapped steering wheel & gear shift.
