Maruti Suzuki New SUV: Maruti Suzuki is about to launch a new SUV, which can be named Maruti Suzuki Vitara. Maruti Suzuki Vitara can be introduced in the third week of this month.
Maruti Suzuki New SUV Vitara: The Hyundai Creta dominates the B-segment. However, the strategy prepared by Toyota and Suzuki together to challenge this dominance is now ready to show its colors soon. Actually, both the car makers are going to bring two new SUVs together. Toyota will launch one of these SUVs, which has also been introduced on July 1. Its name is Toyota Urban Cruiser Highrider. At the same time, Maruti Suzuki will launch another SUV, which can be named Maruti Suzuki Vitara. Maruti Suzuki Vitara can be introduced in the third week of this month.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara and Toyota Urban Cruiser Highrider can see all the similarities related to platform, design, engine and features. Together these two SUVs can create trouble for Hyundai Creta.

On the other hand, if we talk about Vitara, then the Vitara SUV based on Suzuki’s Global C platform can be offered with 1.5 liter petrol with mild hybrid technology and Toyota’s 1.5 liter TNGA Atkinson cycle engine (strong hybrid).
It will have a lithium-ion battery. It can offer fuel efficiency of around 24 to 25kmpl, which will be the best fuel efficiency in the segment just like the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyrider. The new Vitara will also have an AWD system. With a length of around 4.3 metres, the new Maruti SUV will not only compete with the Hyundai Creta but also the Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushak and the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser Highrider.
Yes, even though Suzuki and Toyota are jointly manufacturing these cars (Vitara and Hyrider), but when their cars come in the market, both will be like an option for the customers. So it is natural that these two will also create competition for each other. However, combined sales of both together may impact the sales of Creta.
