In a series of teasers, Maruti reveals the final design of the fifth-generation Grand Vitara SUV, which will have unique design elements compared to its Toyota cousin.
Wide chrome and piano black grille like the new Ertiga. The Maruti Grand Vitara will have squarish split headlamps with LED projectors and three-part LED daytime running lamps, similar to the Suzuki ACross SUV and the new Suzuki S-Cross. This design element appears on the current-generation Baleno and is expected on more Nexa models. A chrome bar with Suzuki branding runs between the DRLs.
The side profile previews a midsize SUV silhouette like the Toyota Hyryder. The Grand Vitara will have a floating roof, blackened pillars, and unique alloy wheels.
The rear styling is also partially shown – the tail-lamps extend onto the tailgate with three LEDs on either side. A chrome strip merges the taillights and Suzuki logo on the tailgate. Below the logo is the Grand Vitara badge.
Maruti Grand Vitara interior, feature list
Fifth-generation Grand Vitara interior details are unknown. We expect the SUV to share elements with the Toyota Hyryder, with cosmetic tweaks. The first Maruti product to have a panoramic sunroof, heads-up display, 360-degree camera, and 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Powertrain, production, launch date of Maruti Grand Vitara
The new Grand Vitara will have Maruti Suzuki mild-hybrid and Toyota full-hybrid engines. Grand Vitara will start with Maruti Suzuki’s 1.5-liter K15C mild hybrid engine. This powertrain has Suzuki’s AllGrip AWD.
Toyota’s 1.5-liter TNGA engine will have a strong hybrid system and an eCVT gearbox. This engine option will have an EV mode for short-distance all-electric driving.
Maruti’s full-hybrid tech will be called “Intelligent Hybrid.” The brand already markets its mild-hybrid tech in India as “Smart Hybrid”
Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Hyryder production begins in August. Maruti Grand Vitara prices will be announced after the Toyota’s launch.
