In most cases, you won’t find a discount on a brand-new automobile, and this is especially true of the popular Maruti Suzuki brand. According to a report by Team-BHP, the newly released Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is being offered at a discount of Rs. 39,000. When purchasing a Grand Vitara in the Strong Hybrid trim, you can save Rs. 39,000 in the form of free accessories. If you’re looking for a mid-size SUV that’s both practical and stylish, go no further than the Grand Vitara Strong Hybrid from Maruti Suzuki, which comes standard with a 5-year/100,000-kilometer guarantee.
Strong Hybrid models of the Grand Vitara are powered by a Toyota 1.5-liter inline-three cylinder normally aspirated gasoline engine (91 hp-122 nm of torque) with an electric motor that generates 78 hp-141 nm of torque. A total of 114 bhp may be generated by the Strong Hybrid, but its actual strength lies in the method in which it delivers its torque to the pavement. The Grand Vitara’s electric motor provides instant torque even at idle, allowing for rapid acceleration.
The SUV can accelerate to 100 kilometres per hour from a stop in only 12 seconds. The Grand Vitara Strong Hybrid’s remarkable fuel efficiency is a major selling factor, since it achieves 28 Kmpl on the highway. This is better than any diesel vehicle. As a result, it has the best fuel economy of any small SUV. The front wheels of the SUV are driven by a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which comes standard with the Strong Hybrid powertrain. The SUV also has a fully electric mode.
The Grand Vitara’s mild hybrid powertrain comprises of a 1.5-liter K15C petrol engine (102 hp-137 Nm) paired with a mild hybrid system that helps the engine out during rapid acceleration and provides brake energy regeneration during rapid deceleration. The mild hybrid powertrain can be had with either a 5 speed manual or 6 speed torque converter transmission. For enthusiasts, the Grand Vitara Mild Hybrid’s accessibility to all-wheel drive (AWD) is what really sets it apart. Sadly, the Grand Vitara’s only automatic transmission models don’t provide all-wheel drive.
In September of 2022.2, Maruti Suzuki delivered more than 4,700 of its Grand Vitara mid-size SUVs to dealership inventory lots in response to more than 65,000 customer orders. The Grand Vitara and its badge-engineered brother, the Toyota Hyryder, have only been half as successful as the market-leading Hyundai Creta in terms of shipments so far, but they may soon catch up. The Toyota factory at Bidadi., close to Bengaluru, is where both the Grand Vitara and the Hyryder are produced, and the two share the same powertrains. With the exception of their appearance, both SUVs are identical. As an alternative to vehicles powered by diesel engines, both Maruti Suzuki and Toyota intend to release additional models featuring Strong Hybrid technology. In this sense, the Grand Vitara and the Hyryder are only appetisers to the full meal of fuel efficiency and performance that is powerful hybrid technology.
