Maruti Suzuki has revealed the new Grand Vitara to the Indian markets a few weeks ago. The car features a brand-new design, an updated cabin with a feature-rich interior and a new all-wheel drive variant. The Grand Vitara is set to go on sale at the end of this year and deliveries starting the end of 2022. The Suzuki Grand Vitara is built on a new Global C platform similar to the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. The automaker hasn’t revealed the price of the car, we expect aggressive pricing due to high competition. We expect the entry-level trim to start at Rs. 9.30 Lakh while the top-spec all-wheel-drive model to cost over Rs.19 Lakh. Due to high-demand, the waiting period for the Grand Vitara has been increased to five months.
The Grand Vitara will compete with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Toyota Hyryder, Skoda Kushaq and more. The upcoming 5-seater Maruti has already scored more than 53,000 pre-orders in the short period. But the car’s waiting period has been increased to almost five months according to gaadiwaadi. The car’s 43 per cent of the total booking accounts for the popular strong hybrid model that is under demand. While the 4WD equipped trim sees little demand, for now, the brand also projects high demand for the trim.
The Suzuki Grand Vitara will feature a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine with mild hybrid tech making 103.6 PS and 136.8 Nm of torque. Paired with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive. Another model features a 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine with strong hybrid tech making over 116 PS and 122 Nm of torque. Paired with a CVT gearbox and front-wheel drive. The incredible and capable engines and powerful offering are worth the waiting period for the Grand Vitara
