If this was a buying decision (for someone with loads of money to spend), which of these would be recommended? Both are expensive CBU petrol SUVs (unless the Grand Vitara is actually made in India), making them almost completely irrelevant here in the price-conscious, mileage-conscious market. I feel the Suzuki Grand Vitara has a slight edge being a more capable off-roader than the show-off CRV, which has had some sales because of the Honda brand. Honda has a few more safety features (anti-theft alarm, traction control). Two vehicles that make no sense here in our country today, but if the money was there to spend, which one would it be?
