Maruti launched the all-new Grand Vitara SUV in the market recently. It replaced S-Cross and is currently Maruti’s flagship model in the line-up. The Grand Vitara is a premium mid-size SUV and is sold via Nexa dealerships. The car comes with several new and interesting features that no other SUV in the competition currently offers. There are variety of aftermarket accessories available for Grand Vitara and some of the owners have already started opting for them. Here we have one such base variant Grand Vitara mild hybrid SUV that has been neatly modified to look like a top-end version.

The video has been uploaded by VIG AUTO ACCESSORIES on their YouTube channel. The owner had approached the workshop for an interior customisation work. The base variant of Grand Vitara misses out on some features that are present in the higher models. As part of the conversion, some changes were made to the exterior as well. Starting with the front, the halogen projector lamps were replaced with LED unit and rest of the things remained same. Coming to the side profile, the car came with 17 inch steel rims from factory. This was replaced with Grand Vitara’s genuine 17 inch dual-tone alloy wheel. Other than this, accessories like roof rails, rain visors were all installed on the SUV and at the rear a parking camera was installed.

The major customisation work on this SUV was done to the interior. Starting with the door pads, the plastic panels on the door were all wrapped in leatherette material. The theme of the cabin the black and bordeaux which is the same colour seen in the higher variant of Grand Vitara mild hybrid. The dashboard on this SUV has been wrapped in bordeaux colour leather material and the fabric seat covers were replaced with custom made dual-tone leatherette seat coves. The fit and finish of the seat covers in top notch. Video mentions that the door pads and the dashboard all get ample cushioning to get the soft touch feel.

On the center of the dashboard is the touchscreen infotainment system. It is an aftermarket unit but, it is kept inside a gloss black frame which looks exactly like the original unit. Damping work has been done on all four doors. This would help in improving the NVH levels and also the sound quality. Talking about the sound quality, the owner has opted for JBL components for a better audio experience. The rear seats are also wrapped in dual-tone perforated leatherette material like front. The quality of work done on this SUV looks good and the finished product look neat as well.
