Maruti Grand Vitara is in high demand even before its launch, know price and special features

Maruti Suzuki aims to increase its market share in the SUV segment in the future. To achieve that goal, the company envisioned several new models, including the Grand Vitara, Baleno Cross and the 5-door Jimny. The Indo-Japanese automaker is betting big on the upcoming Maruti Grand Vitara, which will challenge the Hyundai Crete, Kia Seltos and the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser Highrider. Maruti’s new mid-size SUV will be launched in the last week of September 2022.

Shashank Srivastava, senior managing director of Maruti Suzuki, told the online media publication that the company’s market share in the non-SUV segment is over 65%, but not large in the SUV segment. The main goal of the automaker is to increase its overall market share to 50%, which is currently less than 45%.

The Maruti Grand Vitara SUV is available in six trims: Sigma, Delta, Jetta, Jetta+, Alpha, and Alpha+. Buyers can choose between two hybrid powertrains: the 1.5L K15C mild hybrid and the 1.5L TNGA Atkinson Cycle. Automakers have found that powerful hybrid models are in high demand with 44% of total reservations. The new Maruti midsize SUV has garnered more than 50,000 reservations before launch.

The mild hybrid powertrain delivers 103bhp of output and 137Nm of torque, while the powerful hybrid setup makes 115bhp. There are three transmissions: 5-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and eCVT. Suzuki’s All-Grip AWD system is only available in the Alpha manual variant. The mileage figures for the new Grand Vitara SUV are 21.11 km (2WD manual), 20.58 km (2WD automatic) and 19.38 km (AWD variant) and 27.97 km (powerful hybrid with eCVT).

Speaking of color options, the new Maruti Grand Vitara is available in three dual-tone and six monotone paint configurations. These include Arctic White with black roof, Opulent Red with black roof and Splendid Silver with black roof. The singleton palette includes Nexa Blue, Chestnut Brown, Arctic White, Grandeur Gray, Splendid Silver and Opulent Red.
