Maruti Suzuki’s Grand Vitara is the company’s new flagship SUV in the Indian market. Maruti Suzuki had earlier said that the hatchback segment of the Indian market is about 40 per cent of theirs, but it is shrinking.
While SUVs also have a share of around 40 per cent but it is growing so the brand will increase its focus on the SUV segment.
Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is a premium offering from the company and is available only in petrol and hybrid engine options with manual and automatic transmission. It is available in two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations. Its price ranges between Rs 10.45 lakh to Rs 19.65 lakh (ex-showroom).
