After many teasers and a global unveiling which took place a few weeks ago, the all-new Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has arrived officially in India. The prices for the new Grand Vitara have been set between Rs 10.45 lakh to Rs 19.65 lakh, thus aiming squarely at other midsize SUVs like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, MG Astor, Nissan Kicks and Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. Here, we have got a comprehensive video which showcases the visuals and features of the base-spec Sigma variant of the Grand Vitara, which has been priced at Rs 10.45 lakh.
The YouTube video, uploaded by The Car Show, showcases the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Sigma in the Arctic White paint shade. Despite being a base-spec variant, the Sigma variant of the Grand Vitara comes with several features which are usually there in the mid-spec variants of its rivals.
Exteriors look loaded
Starting from the exterior, the Grand Vitara Sigma comes equipped with halogen projector headlamps and daytime running LEDs, the latter of which also function as turn indicators. The front grille here looks premium with its chrome surrounds and gloss black inserts. The front profile of the Grand Vitara Sigma also gets a wide-looking silver skid plate at the bottom.
Moving towards the side profile, the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Sigma gets 17-inch black steel wheels, which come adorned with plastic wheel caps. The side profile here also gets body-coloured door handles and rearview mirrors, wheel arch mouldings, C-pillar silver garnish, door claddings and turn indicators on the outside rearview mirrors. However, this variant misses out on roof rails as seen in other premium variants. At the back, the Grand Vitara Sigma has got stretched-out LED tail lamps, with separate lamps for reverse lights and turn indicators mounted on the corners of the rear bumper.
The cabin gets basic features
On the inside, the dashboard of the Grand Vitara Sigma has a dual-tone black and burgundy layout with soft-touch plastics. This variant is decently equipped with a push start-stop button, steering-mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, 4.2-inch TFT MID, automatic climate control, fixed front and rear centre armrests and rear AC vents. However, this variant misses out on a factory-fitted infotainment system, and one can make use of the steering-mounted audio and Bluetooth controls with an aftermarket system. In terms of safety, it is complete with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, reverse parking sensors, traction control and ISOFIX mounts for child seats.
The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Sigma is solely available with the 1.5-litre 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 1.5-litre petrol+electric hybrid with eCVT and optional 6-speed automatic gearbox and AllGrip all-wheel-drive system in the mild-hybrid engine option.
