Suzuki Grand Vitara

Starting MSRP: about $19,100

Classified as a compact SUV, the Suzuki Grand Vitara comes in rear-wheel drive, or single- or four-mode, full-time all-wheel drive, which sends power to all four wheels for improved traction. The four-mode, all-wheel-drive system offers true off-road capability with a limited-slip center differential. It also allows for flat towing -- all four wheels on the ground -- behind an RV without accumulating miles when in the neutral position. The Grand Vitara is powered by a 166-horsepower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine or a 230-horsepower, 3.2-liter V-6, and it features an independent suspension.

Standard features in the five-seater include automatic climate control, illuminated steering wheel controls, side-impact and side-curtain air bags with rollover protection, antilock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and electronic stability control. A side-curtain air bag inflates the full area of the window to protect your head from hitting the window or frame pillar in a side-impact collision.
