Love that car
My wife and I are soon to retire and were looking for a smallish suv for a second car to replace our 2002 astra we have had since New- the replacement needed to be used daily around town and trips to family interstate on weekends so our second car, a large 4wd can just be used for rambling around Australia once retired – the big box to tick was ease of entry/Exit as we age as both tall. Reliability as we intend to keep our cars for 10 plus years – after sitting in dozens of cars it came down to vitara and eclipse – eclipse won just due to entry & exit /Safety features/engine zippyness and 7 yr warranty . we have had it since Feb 2019 -Well pleased , tows tinnie and trailer with ease if needed, great fuel consumption in my view, comfortable. Cvt transmission takes a little time to get used to and I will say though, it Can be a little bouncy on dodgy roads due to short wheelbase but other than that great city car that can take you on interstate travel with comfort and ease if needed.
Purchased in February 2019 for $32,000.00.
TICKS THE BOXES - Mitsi - 4 cyl
We purchased this car in 06/18. This car has clever safety features & additional ones - here is my list:
Lane departure warning, front & rear sensors (std), adaptive/intelligent cruise - this includes when you are going down a hill your speed is kept constant, 360 deg camera - this gives a quality display unlike others which appear grainy inc directional lines, blind spot warning, cross traffic alert. All these features work well.
Boot space is for us a bit on the smaller size we have a medium sized dog. 2nd row seating does not have a/c vents - which works well the a/c that is. Handles well. For me I didn't like the engine noise but my husband didn't notice it or see it as a problem.
