    Maruti Suzuki Invicto vs Toyota Innova Hycross

    Maruti Suzuki has launched its new flagship product, the InvictoPriced between Rs 24.79 lakh and Rs 28.42 lakh, the new MPV is slightly cheaper than its platform sibling, the Toyota Innova Hycross. And as we had reported earlier, the Invicto misses out on a few features compared to the Toyota MPV. Let us take a look at how the two MPVs differ on paper. 

    Maruti Suzuki Invicto vs Toyota Innova Hycross: price comparison

    Toyota offers the Innova Hycross in four trims, while the Invicto only gets two trims. Here’s how the prices of the two MPVs compare:

    Alpha+ 7 seatRs 28.42 lakhZX 7 seatRs 29.35 lakh
    --ZX (O) 7 seatRs 29.99 lakh

    Both MPVs get two seating options and are powered by a strong-hybrid powertrain with a 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, which, combined, produce 186hp.

    Maruti Suzuki Invicto Zeta+ vs Toyota Innova Hycross VX: features comparison

    The entry-level trim Invicto Zeta+ is priced between Rs 24.79 lakh and Rs 24.84 lakh, and it is Rs 24,000 cheaper than the similarly equipped Innova Hycross VX trim. Let’s compare the two base trims with respect to their features list:

    Maruti Suzuki Invicto Zeta+ vs Toyota Innova Hycross VX: features comparison
    FeaturesInvicto Zeta+Innova Hycross VX
    Reverse cameraYes360-degree camera
    Parking sensorsNoFront and rear
    WindshieldGreen laminatedGreen laminated + Acoustic
    Rear window defoggerNoYes
    Anti-theft systemImmobiliserImmobiliser + siren + ultrasonic + glass break sensor
    Wing mirror with welcome lightsNoYes

    What has helped Maruti Suzuki to reduce the prices of the Invicto is offering fewer features compared to its equivalent Innova Hycross trim. The Invicto Zeta+ does not get parking sensors, while the Hycross VX gets front and rear parking sensors. Another parking aid missing on the Invicto is the 360-degree camera, as it only gets a reverse parking camera. 

    The Invicto also misses out on the automatically adjusting inside rear view mirror (IRVM) as well as the welcome lights on the wing mirrors. What is also omitted on the new Maruti Suzuki MPV are the rear window defogger and the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS). 

    The Invicto (top) gets champagne gold accents, while the Hycross (bottom) gets silver accents.

    Interestingly, the Invicto gets six airbags as standard across the range, but the Innova Hycross only gets it on the VX (O), ZX and ZX (O) trims. 

    Maruti Suzuki Invicto Alpha+ vs Toyota Innova Hycross ZX: features comparison

    The Invicto Alpha+ trim is priced at Rs 28.42 lakh, while the Innova Hycross ZX is priced at Rs 29.35 lakh, making it Rs 92,000 more expensive. As such, the price difference between the top-spec trims is significantly larger than the equivalent lower-spec trims. Here’s how the features list on the two top-spec trims compares: 

    Maruti Suzuki Invicto Alpha+ vs Toyota Innova Hycross ZX: features comparison
    FeaturesInvicto Alpha+Innova Hycross ZX
    Speakers69 (JBL-tuned)
    Rear armrestYesAdjustable
    Alloy wheels17-inch18-inch
    WipersIntermittent + time adjustIntermittent + time adjust + mist

    The Invicto Alpha+ gets only six speakers, while the Hycross ZX gets a JBL-tuned nine-speaker system. Additionally, the Alpha+ only gets 17-inch wheels and the ZX gets 18-inch wheels, which could be another factor for the larger price difference between the top-spec trims. 

    Maruti Invicto (left) misses out on powered ottoman seats, which is a USP of the Innova Hycross.

    Another unique feature on the Innova Hycross ZX is the powered ottoman seats, which the Invicto misses out on. Even the windshield wipers on the Maruti miss out on the mist wiper function, and the armrests in the second row are non-adjustable. 

    Moreover, Maruti Suzuki does not offer ADAS features on the Invicto – which is available on the Hycross' top-spec ZX (O) trim – and this is likely to have been done to keep the prices of the Invicto down.

    Firstly, Hycross/Invicto are made by Toyota in Bidadi, I think, if Toyota isn't able to meet the demands for the Hycross how'll it meet the demand for Invicto? Secondly, would the market be ready for a 35L Maruti? The market would go to Toyota for it's badge value rather buy a Maruti/Nexa for a few thousands less!! I still feel that Maruti should not aim higher than what it's buyers can afford! It should get it's act together and facelift the Ertiga, XL6 and Ciaz with turbopetrol engines/hybrids and add features and make them safer than take the risk of launching a product in the 35L OTR category. It's actually taking a huge risk first with the overpriced for what is: Jimny and now the Invicto which will be niche products that will not bring in volumes for Maruti/Nexa.

    The Mahindra XUV 300 facelift will be called the XUV 3XO. Should more brands rename models for facelifts?

    Yes, it could give new life to a slow-selling car



    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
