Maruti Suzuki’s Upcoming MPV To Be Named ‘Invicto’, Confirmed!
Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch their upcoming MPV that is based on the popular ToyotaInnova Hycross mode. The name of the upcoming model has been revealed to be ‘Invicto’. It will be manufactured and supplied by Toyota. Positioned as Maruti's flagship model, the Invicto will take the top spot in the carmaker's lineup in the Indian market.
One notable aspect of the Invicto is that it will be the first automatic-only offering from Maruti Suzuki. This move aligns with the growing demand for automatic transmissions and reflects the company's commitment to providing the same.
Maruti Suzuki has been tight-lipped about specific details regarding the Invicto. However, spy pictures of the vehicle have already surfaced online, providing a glimpse of its design and features. The Maruti Invicto will sport distinct styling tweaks to differentiate it from its Toyota counterparts, such as a redesigned front bumper, grille, headlamps, tail-lamp inserts, and unique alloy wheels. Interior enhancements, including minor tweaks to the upholstery and features list, can also be expected.
In terms of powertrain options, the Invicto is anticipated to offer the same choices as the Toyota Innova Hycross. Higher variants are expected to feature a 183hp, 2.0-liter hybrid powertrain, delivering impressive fuel efficiency figures of approximately 13-16 kilometers per liter in real-world conditions. Additionally, Maruti may also offer a 173hp, 2.0-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine paired with a CVT gearbox.
The Maruti Invicto will come in both seven- and eight-seater configurations, offering ample space and versatility for passengers. Upon its launch next month, the Invicto will compete in the premium MPV segment, alongside the Innova Hycross, with the Kia Carnival positioned slightly higher.
