The rear silhouette of Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara looks slightly different from that of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder
The rear portion of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has been teased and it looks slightly different from that of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder’s rear. It looks more like the recently launched second generation Maruti Suzuki Brezza.
The Hyryder’s sharp tail gate shoulder lines are missing and the Grand Vitara simply gets curvy panels. Even the recesses for the bottom light cluster of the Hyryder seems missing for good as they looks quite out of place on the Toyota.
The roof rails and the shark-fin antenna seems to be direct lift from the Hyryder though. The highlight of the rear is the connected LED tails lamps like the recently launched Hyundai Venue. The tail lamp cluster on either side has 3 sets of horizontal LED lines which look quite unique.
Ahead of the unveil on 20th July, the trims of Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara have been revealed as well. They include the normal IC only trim and the unique hybrid trim named ‘Intelligent Electric Hybrid’.
This is quite similar to Toyota Urban Cruiser’s 2 trims – Neo Drive for the IC variants and Hybrid for the hybrid variants. Maruti Suzuki has used the word ‘intelligent’ as the hybrid system can be made to work automatically or drivers can also force the car to run on pure electric power.
Toyota is offering 4 variants for the Neo Drive and 3 variants for the Hybrid on the Urban Cruiser Hyryder. Expect a similar variant lineup for the Grand Vitara as well. One of the non-hybrid variant will sport Suzuki All Grip all-wheel-drive system.
Bookings for the SUV are already open for a token amount of Rs. 11,000/- at all Nexa dealerships. The car will be exclusively sold through Nexa channels. It seems like Maruti Suzuki is planning to undercut Hyundai Creta at least by a lakh Rupees.
