Maruti Suzuki has just introduced the Grand Vitara small SUV, with an ex-showroom Delhi price of Rs. 10.45 lakh. The SUV was launched at a price that is roughly identical to that of the Hyundai Creta (Rs. 10.44 lakh). The Maruti Grand Vitara and its twin, the Toyota Hyryder Urban Cruiser, are the newest cars to join India’s small SUV market, which is very competitive.

The Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, and Nissan Kicks are also Grand Vitara rivals. The newly introduced SUV is also accessible through Maruti Suzuki Subscribe, with monthly subscription plans beginning at Rs. 27,000. There are 15 different trim levels for the Maruti Grand Vitara. They are called Sigma, Zeta, Delta, and Alpha.


The Grand Vitara is available with two powertrains: a mild hybrid and a powerful hybrid. The mild hybrid-manual transmission variations have all-wheel drive, whereas the remainder of the models has front-wheel drive. This engine is available with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

The mild hybrid powertrain is made up of a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder K15C petrol engine (102 Bhp, 137 Nm) and an SHVS (Suzuki Hybrid Vehicle System) mild hybrid unit that helps the petrol engine during heavy acceleration. In addition to this, the mild hybrid has brake energy regeneration and an idle-stop mechanism.

The powerful hybrid powertrain is made up of a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder petrol engine (91 Bhp–122 Nm) and an electric motor (78 Bhp–141 Nm). The combined output is 114 bhp. The powerful hybrid powertrain also includes an all-electric mode, which allows the this to go for around 25 kilometers on battery power alone.

All Strong Hybrid Grand Vitara models are front-wheel drive and come standard with a CVT automatic transmission. The powerful hybrid’s main selling point is its diesel-beating 28 kmpl fuel efficiency.
