Not the 1.6 litre Jimny with 40mm more ground clearance I'd been hoping for,* but Suzuki has introduced a Special Edition Grand Vitara with extra stuff for its $39,990 list price. You can tell it by the 18-inch, 10-spoke alloys on 225/60R18 tyres, or by the silver finish roof rails and bonnet vents. Also added: Hill Hold and Hill Descent Control, GPS, three (!) trip computers, a reversing camera with 3.5-inch screen in the rearview mirror, Bluetooth, and something called a Pantera command centre that works equipment and tracks route, speed and time.
* Don't get your hopes up for this actually happening, it's just a fantasy of mine!
