The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is the latest contender in the mid-size SUV segment, and since its launch, it has been a huge hit for the brand. The model has been selling like hotcakes and has quickly made its way to after-market modification shops as well. Recently, another video of a uniquely modified Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has surfaced on the internet. This particular Grand Vitara’s most unique feature is its alloy wheels, which have been taken from the GT-line variant of the South Korean carmaker Kia Seltos. The car also features a customized interior.
The video of the Grand Vitara GT-line has been shared on YouTube by Vig Auto Accessories on their channel. The video begins with the shop owner mentioning that the owner of this particular car called him to describe what he wanted to do with his car. He stated that the car is a Sigma variant Grand Vitara, which is the base variant of the model.

Following this, the presenter reveals that the owner of the car had three main concerns. The first concern was that he wanted alloy wheels, as the Sigma variant from the factory does not come equipped with them, but he did not want the Maruti Suzuki genuine alloy wheels, as they were too common. The second concern was that he did not want to upgrade to bigger 18-inch tires. Lastly, he wanted something original and not aftermarket for the new set of alloy wheels. After taking note of all these concerns, the presenter suggested that the owner go with Kia Seltos’ GT-line 17-inch alloy wheels.
The presenter in the video then adds that they have also taken the extra step to paint all four disc brakes on the car red to match the center of the new alloy wheels. Following this, he also shows the car and mentions that they have wrapped the top half of the car in Garware High Gloss Black PPF material to give it a dual-tone appearance.
Additionally, the presenter mentions that they have customized the interior of this particular Grand Vitara as well. He states that they have wrapped half of the doors in black leather. Furthermore, he also shows the leather upholstery job they have done on the seats of the car. He then shows the front of the car and tells the viewers that they have added a Blaupunkt 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 4 JBL components as well.
From the factory, the base Sigma variant does not come equipped with a lot of features, which is why it has become one of the favorite variant choices of people who want to modify their cars according to their taste. The Sigma variant of the Grand Vitara comes solely available with the 1.5-liter four-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine, which puts up 103 PS of power and 138 Nm of torque, and is offered only with a 5-speed manual gearbox. However, the SUV is also available with a 1.5-liter petrol+electric hybrid with eCVT and optional 6-speed automatic gearbox and AllGrip all-wheel-drive system in the mild-hybrid engine option.
