    Listen to this Article

    The much-awaited Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has been launched, with prices ranging from Rs 10.45 lakh-19.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). A cousin to the recently launched Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, the Grand Vitara not only boasts of hybrid powertrains but also brings back 4WD system to this segment since the discontinuation of the Renault Duster AWD. It is now Maruti’s flagship model in India and also the second to arrive from the brand’s upcoming SUV onslaught.

    Bookings for the Grand Vitara, which have been underway for a token amount of Rs 11,000, have already crossed 55,000 units, with the waiting period stretching up to five and a half months. 

    • Grand Vitara is available in 11 variants
    • AWD limited to top-spec mild-hybrid manual variant
    • Will be sold only through Nexa outlets 

    Here's a look at the detailed price list of the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara:

    The Grand Vitara is available with dual-tone colour options too on the top-end Alpha, Zeta+ and Alpha+ trims, which cost an additional Rs 16,000. The SUV can also be owned through Maruti Suzuki Subscribe for an all-inclusive monthly subscription fee that starts from Rs. 27,000. 

    Maruti Suzuki is offering a special introductory package with the strong-hybrid variants that consists of an extended warranty of 5 years/1,00,000 km – up from the standard 2 year/40,000 km – and a genuine Nexa accessory pack worth over Rs 67,000.

    Importantly, as we have already reported, the mild-hybrid variants of the Grand Vitara undercut those of the Toyota Hyryder by Rs 20,000. Meanwhile, the strong hybrid variants cost Rs 50,000 more than the Hyryder's. This is because each brand has taken a price advantage of its own tech, with the mild-hybrid system coming from Suzuki and the strong-hybrid from Toyota. 

    Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara: powertrain

    The biggest talking point of the Grand Vitara is its engine options, both of which it shares with the Hyryder. The 103hp, 1.5-litre K15C petrol mild-hybrid engine, which already does duty on a range of Maruti Suzuki models, comes mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. And like in the Hyryder, the AWD system is only available with the top-end mild-hybrid manual variant. Maruti claims an efficiency of 21.11kpl for the manual variants, 20.58kpl for the automatics and 19.38kpl for the manual AWD variant. 

    Additionally, the Grand Vitara also gets a Toyota-sourced 92hp, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder Atkinson cycle petrol engine paired to an electric motor that makes 79hp and 141Nm of torque. Combined, the hybrid powertrain makes 115hp and is paired to an e-CVT gearbox. Maruti claims an efficiency of 27.97kpl for this powertrain.

    Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara: exterior design

    The Grand Vitara’s biggest differentiator from the Toyota Hyryder is its front styling. With cues similar to the Suzuki S-Cross sold abroad, the front fascia of the Grand Vitara boasts of a large, chrome-lined hexagonal grille, three-point LED daytime running lamps, bumper-mounted main headlamp cluster and a healthy dose of body cladding.

    The side body panels, the tailgate and even the rear bumper with integrated tail-lamps are identical to the Hyryder. A chrome applique on the C-pillar, a different design for the alloy wheels and full-width LED light bar on the tailgate, however, are unique to the Maruti.

    Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara: interior and features

    On the inside, the Grand Vitara looks similar to the Hyryder, with the only major difference being the colour schemes. Both get the same steering wheel, which is also seen on other, newer Maruti Suzuki models. The touchscreen infotainment, instrument cluster and all the switchgear are identical on both SUVs as well.

    As for features, top-spec variants of the Grand Vitara get a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera, wireless charger, ambient lighting, connected car tech, ESP, hill-hold assist, tyre pressure monitoring system, and six airbags.

    The Grand Vitara enters the hotly-contested and ever-growing midsize SUV segment, with well-established rivals like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, Nissan Kicks and, of course, its cousin, the Toyota Hyryder.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?
