Maruti Grand Vitara SUV will be sold via the company’s premium dealership Nexa. The car is expected to become the most expensive vehicle in the company’s line-up. Nexa has shared various teasers of the vehicle. Giving us a glimpse at the silhouette of the SUV as well as some of the powertrain and creature comfort features.
Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara SUV Powertrain
Let’s start with the powertrain. Maruti Suzuki has confirmed that the new SUV will be getting a Hybrid powertrain. This new powertrain will be different from the mild hybrid technology the company has been offering in other vehicles. This new drivetrain will have a dedicated EV mode, in which the car will completely run on battery. We have seen something similar with the Honda City eHEV variant. There will a normal ‘Drive Mode’ which will use both conventional fuel and the battery to move forward. This will result in much higher mileage compared to the car’s competitors.
What we know about Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara SUV
Maruti has also revealed that the new SUV will get the largest sunroof in its segment. That’s saying something because the Creta also has one of the biggest sunroofs on offer. The car will get tri element headlamps, a design similar to what we’ve seen in the 2022 Baleno. The taillamps will also occupy a major portion of the tailgate. The LED taillamps will run horizontally.
The silhouette of the Grand Vitara SUV shows a sloping roof line which gives the SUV a more sophisticated stance.
