Why is it bringing Grand Vitara?
The recently updated all-new 2022 Brezza and S-Cross are just two SUVs that Maruti Suzuki has to offer, which is not making any headway in the lucrative mid-size SUV space. But with the ever-increasing preference for SUVs of all shapes and sizes, Maruti now wants to make a dominant presence in the SUV segment where it has no presence. In this way, the Grand Vitara will not only help Maruti gain a foothold but also challenge the existing giants.

Interesting name choice
The choice of production model name is interesting as Maruti Suzuki recently dropped Vitara (Vitara) from the name of the updated Brezza. Till now there were speculations that the name of the new mid-size SUV would be Vitara. But the company has made it clear that it will be Grand Vitara.

SUV made in collaboration with Toyota
Maruti is betting big on the Grand Vitara which will be manufactured at the Toyota Kirloskar Motor Plant in Karnataka. Both Suzuki and Toyota have jointly developed the new mid-size SUV that will be sold in India as two different models under both the brands. Toyota Kirloskar Motor introduced the Urban Cruiser Hyryder on July 1, and it will be the first robust hybrid vehicle in its segment. Maruti is also equipping the upcoming Grand Vitara with mild hybrid technology which will make it a unique car among the rivals.


Engine and power
Considering the updates that will be received on the existing models, then the chances of getting a long list of features inside the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara are high. Because if the fight in this segment is to be taken to Korean companies then features will be an important aspect. In this SUV, there could be a 1.5-liter petrol unit that will be mated to an electric motor for a combined and expected power output of around 105 bhp. Transmission options may include a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed AT unit.
