Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Launch Date: Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara launch on 26th September; Expected price, specs |


The highly anticipated Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is finally heading for an official launch on 26th September. TOI Auto has learnt from a source close to the development, but Maruti is yet to make an official announcement of the launch date yet. It’s only now a matter of days before the prices of the Toyota Hyryder-cousin will be announced. Like the Hyryder, the Grand Vitara will have the options of mild and strong hybrid powertrains. Until Maruti roll out the official price, here’s all you need to know.
The prices of only the mid and top end Hyryder have been announced so far. While we’re still awaiting the entry-level prices of the Toyota Hyryder, we expect the Grand Vitara to be priced more competitively at a range of about Rs 10 lakh to Rs 18.7 lakh (ex-showroom).
