OMG, This was Suzuki's big news? Come on guys? Taking a Grand Vitara and letting some graffiti artists tag it isn't that impressive. But we know there are some of you who love this stuff, and the work was kind of cool, so here it is. In all fairness, Suzuki made sure we knew it wasn't just a paint job. Follow the jump for another pic and the stats on this rolling mix stand.

      You all are saying this is a black thing. This ride is pointed at a wide range of young people. Old people and country people prolly won't get it. Knocking something you don't understand is , well, I don't have to say it now do I.

      Can I just ask how many african-americans would drive this when they all push benzs and beamers not trying to be racist but this seems like theyre marketing this towards the urban crowd.

      If Suzuki want's to make it's cars and SUVs more
      appealing they needs to produce more desireable products. Staging silly stunts like this
      graffiti Vitara won't cut it. Here is also a news flash for Suzuki there are many African Americans like myself who find graffiti vile and disgusting. It has no place on buildings, subway trains, stations, or cars.

      Don't dismiss this as a popcorn fart - this is a huge bowel movement and not in the bad sense!!!

      Suzuki needs to get urban. It's going to start with trial and error, but if you look up "Polar Opposite" in the dictionary, you'll find a picture of a Hayabusa on one end and a picture of a Swift on the other. Suzuki cars needs to increase its brand strength and if a cheesy graffiti layden Samurai on steroids is the first step, well then I say it's a GOOD first step!

      korey,
      Before we go down this path, just becuase the words "Hip Hop" and "Urban" are being used, don't make that connection to African Americans....it's not there. I think someone was just bored when they came up with this comment.

      "Pimp my car" just jumped the shark.
