Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has 2 trims – 1 for the normal variants and other 1 for the hybrid variants

Ahead of the unveil on 20th July, the trims of Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara have been leaked. 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.

Maruti Suzuki has teased the rear end of the SUV and it sports the ‘Grand Vitara’ name written in bold on the tail gate that also features Hyundai Venue-like connected LED tail lamps fixed on to black horizontal slats.

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.

Buyers can also book online by logging on to Deliveries are likely to commence from August or September.

Leveraging the expertise of Suzuki design and engineering and born from a legacy of legendary SUV capabilities, the Grand Vitara with its bold SUV design, sophisticated interiors, revolutionary powertrains, and segment leading features is all set to make a strong statement, the company said.

The car is expected to become a truly global product with exports planned for Europe as well as Africa. It will replace the current international Grand Vitara for which a generation change has been long overdue.

Developed jointly with Toyota, the all-new Grand Vitara is essentially the Urban Cruiser Hyryder’s cousin sharing almost everything with it. Both the SUVs are built on Suzuki’s Global-C platform that currently underpins the Brezza, Ciaz, S-Cross, the new international S-Cross.
