Maruti Suzuki Invicto: What to expect?

Since it is based on Innova HyCross, Maruti Suzuki Invicto will share its platform and underpinnings with Toyota’s new hybrid MPV. Differences will come in the form of design and styling. The Invicto will borrow some styling cues from the Grand Vitara. Up front, the MPV will get a wide grille with a honeycomb mesh pattern. This grille will also get chrome highlights.

The LED DRLs on Maruti Suzuki Invicto will feature the three-dot design found on the Grand Vitara and Baleno. Connecting the LED headlamps will be two horizontal chrome bars running across the length of the grille. The Invicto will also get a new design for the front and rear bumpers.

Toyota’s TNGA-C platform will underpin Maruti Suzuki Invicto. As mentioned earlier, it will also share its powertrain with Toyota Innova HyCross. The 2.0-litre petrol engine on Innova HyCross produces a maximum power output of 152hp and 187Nm torque. This engine is paired with fifth-gen strong hybrid tech (M20A FXS) and can produce a combined power of 186hp. The non-hybrid variant produces 174hp and 197Nm. Maruti Suzuki Invicto’s mileage will be similar to that of HyCross, which puts out 21.2kmpl.
