Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara: Exterior Design

The front design of the Grand Vitara sets it out from the Toyota Hyryder the most. The Grand Vitara's front fascia shares design cues with the Suzuki S-Cross marketed abroad and features a big, chrome-lined hexagonal grille, three-point LED daytime running lamps, a main headlight cluster positioned on the bumper, and much of body cladding. The Hyryder shares the same side body panels, tailgate, as well as rear bumper with integrated taillamps. Still, the Maruti Suzuki model is the only one with a full-width LED light bar on the tailgate, a chrome appliqué on the C-pillar, and distinct alloy wheel designs.

Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara: Powertrain Options

A Maruti Suzuki 1.5-litre K15C petrol engine with a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed torque converter automatic is available. It generates 102bhp of maximum power and 136Nm of peak torque. This unit is also available with CNG power, which detunes it to 87bhp/121.5Nm, and only works with the five-speed manual transmission. Last but not least, with the mild-hybrid engine, this unit is only offered with AllGrip AWD in this fully equipped Alpha model level. 

A 1.5-litre engine coupled with an electric motor and an eCVT makes up the full hybrid system. The gasoline engine generates 91bhp/122Nm, while the electric motor contributes 79bhp/141Nm. 

Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Gets a New Safety Feature

A new safety feature has been added to the Grand Vitara by Maruti Suzuki. The SUV's powerful hybrid versions now have an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS), according to the firm. As a result, the costs of all hybrid models have increased by up to Rs 4,000. Buyers interested in purchasing the Grand Vitara hybrid will have to shell out at least Rs 18.29 lakh, with a maximum price cap of Rs 19.79 lakh. Prices are all ex-showroom. The pricing of the non-hybrid version, on the other hand, remains unchanged. 

The AVAS is a novel safety feature that warns drivers and pedestrians of approaching electric drive cars. It works by creating a low-level warning sound that may be heard from five feet away. The new safety feature was added to comply with Automotive Industry Standard (AIS) 173, which requires hybrid electric vehicles, fuel-cell vehicles, and fuel-cell hybrids equipped with at least one electric motor or an electric motor generator to have a pedestrian safety feature.
