Depending on the market, the Suzuki Escudo is also referred to as Suzuki Vitara, Geo Tracker, GMC Tracker, and Suzuki Grand Vitara. Despite the different names, it’s the same platform and technology. The Escudo is classified as a compact SUV that came into the market in 1988 and quickly made a name for itself as a capable off-road vehicle. It was a pioneer in this category which was introduced to offer the comfort of a passenger car that most 4×4’s of the day lacked. The Suzuki Escudo became a popular choice due to its comfort, fuel economy, 4×4 capability and an affordable price point.
The interior is made of premium material giving it a luxury car feel. One of the Escudo’s biggest advantage is its large windscreen which offers excellent visibility from the driver’s seat. Additionally, it has ample headroom and legroom both in the front and back seats.
Unlike its rivals, Suzuki ensures that buyers get value for money by equipping the base models with as much technology as possible. Up to date, the Suzuki Escudo comes with impressive functions that are mainly equipped in higher grades in other vehicles.
The exterior has gradually improved to a curvy body with a great grill to bumper ratio. Its mid-size SUV design coupled with a passenger car-like interior gives the Escudo the driving comfort for daily commute car as well as off-road capability.
