Maruti Suzuki Invicto Bookings
Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest carmaker, is all set to launch its premium MPV Invicto in India on July 5th. The Invicto is a rebadged version of the Toyota Innova Hycross, which is a hybrid model that uses both a petrol engine and an electric motor to power the vehicle. The Maruti Suzuki Invicto Bookings will be sold through the Nexa chain of dealerships and bookings have already started for a token amount of Rs 25,000.
Design and Features
The Invicto will look similar to the Innova Hycross, except for some minor changes to the exterior and interior. The Invicto will get a different grille with two chrome slats, one of which extends into the headlights. It will also get a slightly reworked bumper, new headlight and tail-light inserts and a unique alloy wheel design.
The interior of the Invicto will also get some tweaks to the upholstery and the features list. The Invicto will come with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, powered Ottoman seats for the second row, dual-zone climate control, a powered tailgate, ventilated front seats, TPMS, six airbags, and an ADAS suite. However, some of these features might be omitted or reduced in the lower variants to keep the costs in check.
Engine and Mileage
The Invicto will be powered by two engine options: a 2.0-litre petrol engine that produces 173hp and 188Nm of torque and a 2.0-litre strong-hybrid powertrain that produces 183hp and 188Nm of torque along with an additional 11hp and 206Nm of torque from the electric motor. Both the engines will be mated to an e-CVT gearbox. This will make the Invicto the first Maruti Suzuki model to be offered only with an automatic transmission.
The mileage figures of the Invicto are not yet revealed, but we can expect them to be similar to the Innova Hycross, which claims to deliver 14.7kmpl for the petrol variant and 18.9kmpl for the hybrid variant.
Maruti Suzuki Invicto Price and Rivals
The price of the Invicto is not yet announced, but it is expected to range between Rs 25.20 lakh to Rs 30.20 lakh (ex-showroom), depending on the variant chosen. The Invicto will carry a premium over the Innova Hycross due to the royalty that Maruti Suzuki has to pay to Toyota for using its platform and powertrain.
The Invicto will compete with its Toyota sibling, the Innova Hycross, which is priced between Rs 18.55 lakh to Rs 29.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It will also face competition from the Kia Carnival, which is priced slightly higher at Rs 30.99 lakh to Rs 35.49 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Invicto will be Maruti Suzuki’s first attempt at entering the premium MPV segment in India and it will be interesting to see how it fares against its established rivals.
