Indian automaker Maruti Suzuki has hiked the prices of two of its models – the Swift and the Grand Vitara – by up to Rs 25,000 in India. Citing increased commodity prices coupled with inflation, the automaker had earlier announced its plans to increase the prices of vehicles in April 2024. As a result, car buyers will now have to pay Rs 19,000 more for the entry-level Sigma variant of the Grand Vitara. This variant, which was last available in India at Rs 10.80 lakh (ex-showroom), is now priced at Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Apart from that, prices of all other variants (Delta, Zeta, and Alpha) remain the same. 

Under the hood, the mid-size SUV gets two powertrain options. A 1.5-litre engine (with mild-hybrid tech) develops 102bhp and 137Nm of peak torque and comes mated to either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter. The other is a 1.5-litre motor with strong-hybrid tech that is tuned to produce 114bhp and 122Nm of peak torque. This unit is paired with an e-CVT unit. Also on offer is a CNG variant, which makes 121.5Nm of peak torque and 86.6bhp using a mild-hybrid system. The Grand Vitara, which rivals the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, and Honda Elevate, is now priced from Rs 10.99 lakh to Rs 19.93 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom).

The hatchback is available in four variants – LXi, VXi, ZXi, and ZXi Plus, across CNG and petrol powertrain options.
