Maruti Suzuki new MPV name and unveiling timeline
Maruti Suzuki has officially confirmed the arrival of its new Toyota Innova Hycross-based MPV, which will be unveiled on 5 July. The model, which was previously expected to be called the Engage, will now be called the Invicto. The carmaker aims to sell 9,000 units of this MPV every year.
New Maruti Invicto engine and specifications
Sources in the know have suggested that the Maruti Suzuki Invicto MPV will be available only with the 2.0-litre petrol engine paired with a hybrid motor. The former is tuned to produce 172bhp and 188Nm of torque, while the electric motor generates an additional 206Nm of torque. An e-CVT unit will be the sole transmission on offer.
Invicto MPV exterior design
Details regarding changes to the exterior design of the Maruti Invicto when compared to the Innova Hycross remain scarce at the moment. Earlier this week, we brought you exclusive details of the new grille that the Invicto could adorn at launch. A few changes could arrive in the form of tweaked front and rear bumpers as well as new alloy wheels.
2023 Maruti Suzuki Invicto interior and features
We expect the Hycross-based MPV from Maruti to borrow heavily from the top-spec ZX and ZX(O) variants from Toyota’s version of this model. A few notable features are likely to include a 360-degree camera, ADAS, a panoramic sunroof, a three-zone climate control system, and a powered driver seat with memory function.
Maruti Invicto expected price in India and rivals
In India, the Maruti Invicto MPV is expected to arrive with a price tag of Rs. 25-30 lakh (ex-showroom). Once launched, the model will rival the Toyota Innova Hycross, Kia Carens, Hyundai Alcazar, Mahindra XUV700, Tata Safari, and MG Hector Plus.
