Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara unveiled

The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has been unveiled, being the carmaker’s new premium offering in India and the first model ever to get a strong-hybrid powertrain option.

The Grand Vitara will be offered in six trims: Sigma, Delta, Zeta, Alpha, Zeta+ and Alpha+ (last two for the strong-hybrid powertrain). It will be offered with two engine options in India.

It will get a 1.5-litre petrol engine with strong hybrid tech, paired with an e-CVT. This is the same powertrain that will be seen on the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder as well. It produces 91 bhp & 122 Nm while the electric motor develops 79 bhp & 141 Nm. The combined output of this powertrain is rated at 114 bhp. The flagship SUV will also get a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine that will develop 101 bhp and 136.8 Nm of peak torque. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed MT & a 6-speed AT and the manual variants will get an optional AWD system as well.

Maruti has equipped its SUV with premium features such as a 360-degree camera, a head-up display, ventilated front seats, a digital driver display and a panoramic sunroof. The Grand Vitara also gets a 9-inch touchscreen (with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), wireless phone charger, and over 40 connected car features.

The SUV will enter production in August, followed by a launch in September, with an expected starting price of Rs 9.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
