This rear-wheel drive compact SUV comes in as the base trim, yet offers plenty of standard features. The 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara LX is a four-door SUV with a body-on-frame chassis and front independent and solid live axle rear suspension. It is powered by a 24-valve, 2.5-liter DOHC V6 engine and choice of standard 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic. This powertrain delivers 165-hp and 162 ft-lbs of torque at 4000 RPM, with an average fuel economy of 17/20 mpg. With an optional trailer hitch, the SUV can tow up to 1500 pounds.
The 2005 Grand Vitara LX earns four stars in frontal impact and five in side impact crash tests. 4-wheel disc brakes are standard and can be supplemented with optional 4-wheel ABS. Dual front airbags provide the only crash protection. Side curtain bags are not available for either row. Other safety-oriented equipment includes the 16-inch steel wheels with all-season tires, skid plates, automatic headlights, and daytime running lights.
Some of the more prominent features include power windows, locks, and heated mirrors, wheel-mounted cruise control, remote entry, a tachometer, tilt and power steering, an 8-speaker sound system with CD player, intermittent wipers, and automatic climate control. The instrument panel boasts electroluminescent gauges. Rear seats split-fold, expanding the 23.4 cubic foot cargo area to 50 cubic feet. Tiedowns and a cover are standard, but a net costs more. An included roof rack provides even more storage.

Adding the four-wheel drive system to the 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara LX 4WD ensures more secure road grip on slippery pavement and, thanks to both high and low-range gearing, more capable off-road performance. The system should not be used on dry pavement. As a 4WD Grand Vitara, it also gets standard 4-wheel ABS brakes. The compact SUV seats four or five in two rows, with split-folding rear seats, and legroom measurements of 41 inches up front and 30.6 in the back. The cargo area comes equipped with a cover and tiedowns, with the option to add a cargo net. The rear window gets its own wiper, in addition to the front intermittent wipers. A roof rack comes in handy when the 50 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seats down) gets too full.
Powering all this is a 165-hp, 2.5-liter DOHC V6 with 162 ft-lbs of torque at 4000 RPM. The 2005 Grand Vitara LX 4WD has a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Fuel economy hovers around 17/20 mpg. Upgrading to the 4WD gets you standard 4-wheel ABS in addition to the 4-wheel disc brakes. Dual front airbags, 16-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, and daytime running lights make up the bulk of the safety features. The LX 4WD still earns four and five stars in the NHTSA crash tests, and the highest "good" ranking with the IIHS. Skid plates and a full-sized spare are also part of the package.
A full power setup includes remote entry and wheel-mounted cruise control. Heated mirrors, a CD player, intermittent wipers, a rear window wiper, tilt steering, a tachometer, automatic climate control, and electroluminescent gauges are also standard in the 2005 Grand Vitara LX 4WD.

The 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara EX adds mostly sportier appearance features to this compact, rear-wheel drive SUV. Foglights, 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, wheel-mounted audio controls, and a moonroof are some significant upgrades from the LX.
The 2005 Grand Vitara EX features a 2.5-liter, 24-valve, DOHC V6 with output numbers of 165-hp and 162 ft-lbs of torque. A 5-speed manual is not available for the EX, which must content itself with the 4-speed automatic. The SUV seats four in two rows, with split-folding rear seats and front bucket seats. Front legroom exceeds 41 inches, while rear legroom squeezes in at 30.6 inches. The cargo hold expands from 23.4 to 50 cubic feet, and features tiedowns and a cargo cover. More room can be found on the standard roof rack. The rear window carries its own wiper, and the rear door opens to the right. Dual front airbags, 4-wheel disc brakes, skid plates, automatic headlights, and daytime running lights help earn four stars in frontal impact and five stars in side impact tests. ABS brakes are optional, but there are no side curtain airbags.
Inside the cabin, the EX looks much like the LX. Power locks, windows, and heated mirrors are joined by wheel-mounted cruise control, remote entry, tilt and power steering, automatic climate control, a tachometer, and an 8-speaker CD player. There are no additional options offered.

Surprisingly good off-road, thanks to the low-range gearing, the 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara EX 4WD offers more driving versatility. The only caveat is not to engage the system on dry pavement. Drivers enjoy the handling of the front independent and solid live axle rear suspension. They were not happy with the anemic 2.5-liter DOHC V6 engine, although its 165-hp and 162 ft-lb ratings are comparable to similarly-sized cars. An optional tow hitch allows 1500 pounds of towing. A 4-speed automatic is the only transmission available on the EX.
The 2005 Grand Vitara EX adds plenty to the long list of standard safety features. Inside the cabin you'll find full power accessories, remote entry, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a moonroof, and a CD player. More practical items include intermittent front wipers, a rear window wiper, tilt and power steering, automatic climate control, and heated mirrors. A tachometer resides close by the electroluminescent dash gauges. Outside, the SUV upgrades to standard foglights, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler. On the safety front, you get dual front airbags, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, skid plates, automatic headlights, and daytime running lights.
The 2005 Grand Vitara EX 4WD seats four or five passengers, though rear legroom is cramped at only 30.6 inches. Rear seats split-fold onto the cargo hold, which can hold a maximum of 50 cubic feet when the seats are down. Tiedowns help secure items, while the cargo cover keeps them hidden. A cargo net is optional. A roof rack is included in the EX package.
