If you like the Vitara, or Grand Vitara, the Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4/Daihatsu Terios, Kia Sportage, and the Nissan XTrail are similar.
On the smaller side, there's also the Suzuki Jimny and Mitsubishi Pajero Pinin.
If off road capability is important, also consider the Mitsubishi Pajero.
The 4wd systems on the Grand Vitara and similar cars are for safety and traction on slippery roads, not actual off roading.
They Pajero may look much bigger than the Vitara, but the long Pajero is actually slightly narrower and equal in length to the E-Class Mercedes.
Hyundai Galloper is the the exact same car as a Pajero, with cosmetic changes and a cheaper price.
Mechanically, the Pajeros are very reliable.
Their standard tire is 245 so nice and wide too.
After 15 years and 300k km, the only thing I've ever replaced was the clutch some rubber bushings.
Isuzu Mu/Opel Frontera, Toyota 4runner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, SsangYong Korando are other good options in your price range.
There's also the Chevy Blazer, Ford Explorer, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee, LandRover Freelander, but I know nothing about those. >>972785
