Maruti’s version of the Toyota Hycross is Rs 1 lakh cheaper, and definitely is a premium MPV. And you get Maruti’s extensive network of dealers and service centers. Perhaps you should check out the Invicto too, if you were already considering the Hycross.

Maruti Suzuki Invicto bookings open
Bookings for the premium MPV are finally open. The booking amount is Rs 25,000 and you can book the vehicle at any Nexa dealership.
In latest updates about the Invicto, the MPV has already been spotted at Nexa dealerships. The specific photo has a white Invicto with a front grille that distinguishes it from the Toyota Hycross that it is based upon. We now also know that the Invicto will not have a petrol only version – the vehicle will be available only as a petrol-electric hybrid.
The cabin of the Maruti Invicto was also recently revealed in spy photos. The overall layout of the Invicto is identical to the Hycross – but we are not about the texttures or materials on offer yet.
Invicto pricing update
The pricing is not announced yet – but the Invicto will be available in a single variant only, and will not offer ADAS found in the Toyota Hycross. This means that the Invicto will be priced below the top-end Hycross MPV.
Maruti Invicto teaser
Maruti Suzuki released a teaser for the Invicto on 22 June. From the teaser, we can see that the Invicto will get a different colour scheme inside than the Hycross.
Maruti Suzuki Engage MPV’s final name seems to be Invicto: Edit – Confirmed
Excitement has been high about Maruti Suzuki’s upcoming large MPV for India. The name of the MPV was initially believed to be Engage – this was based on a trademark filing by Maruti Suzuki. But as of 13 June, 2023 it has almost been confirmed that the name will be Invicto. The vehicle will be officially revealed on 5th July.
What is the Maruti Suzuki Invicto?
The Maruti Invicto three-row MPV (previously believed to be Engage) will be the costliest car ever from India’s largest car manufacturer. Naturally, as its the same car as the Toyota Hycross MPV which was launched in December 2022. The alliance between Maruti and Toyota mean that the companies do a lot of badge-engineering – just change the design and interiors – and sell it under their own brand name. Thus we have the Toyota Hyryder and the Maruti Grand Vitara – the same vehicle from both companies. And we also have the Toyota Glanza, which is basically a redesigned Maruti Baleno premium hatchback.
As for the Invicto, Toyota would be manufacturing 10,000 of the MPVs and handing them over to Maruti to sell from the Nexa showrooms. This is only for the first year, and the numbers may change in the fugure depending on demand.
The Maruti Engage / Invicto will have the same engines and transmissions as the HyCross. The company may decide to not offer an engine option, perhaps – but this will be just to differentiate it from the HyCross – and it may be on offer later. Alternatively, both the MPVs might be identical under the hood.
Maruti Invicto Engines and Specifications
Just like the Toyota HyCross, the Maruti Suzuki Invicto will come with a petrol engine, as well as a petrol-electric hybrid option (Please note that this is not confirmed yet).
The petrol Invicto will offer 172.99 BHP @ 6600 RPM from a 1987 cc petrol engine. This four cylinder engine is mated to a CVT transmission and offers an ARAI certified mileage (fuel economy) of 16.13 KMPL. Actual mileage can go down quite a bit depending on traffic, road conditions and driving styles.
The Invicto will also come with the petrol-electric hybrid motor of the Toyota HyCross. This engine-motor combination offers a certified fuyel economy of 23.24 KMPL. Maximum power output is 183.72 BHP @6600 RPM.
We believe Maruti will offer both the engine options on the upcming Invicto MPV.
What about the prices of the Maruti Invicto?
We believe that Maruti will follow the pricing patterns we have already seen in their other badge engineered cars with Toyota. The prices wll be in the same ballpark as the HyCross – that means prices can start as low as Rs 18.55 lakh (or even slightly cheaper perhaps) and then go up to Rs 30 lakh ex-showroom for the high-end, top trim variant.
Design and interiors
There has been no spy shots of the interiors of the Maruti Invicto so far. But we already know what the exterior design would look like. Most of the body panels would be the same as the HyCross, after all. But the front-end design of the Invicto will be significantly different, and some might even say more handsome than the front end of the Toyota HyCross. Given below is the best artist’s rendering of the Invicto that we have seen so far, and we believe the final design would be more than 95% similar to this. This render was created by Overdrive.
Previously, other artists tried their hands at creating renders of the Maruti Invicto, and they came close. But the latest one seems to be the closest to the actual vehicle as it was based on spy shots of the undisguised MPV.
Maruti Suzuki might also use a different headlight and tail light design compared to the HyCross to further distinguish the MPV from its sibling.
Above, you see an earlier rendering of the Invicto – but this is now outdated. Proportions also seem more accurate in the newer render.
Maruti Suzuki Chairman RC Bhargava, speaking about the Invicto previously, said that the company would be sourcing a three-row vehicle from Toyota and selling it. He added that while thje numbers might not be very high, it would be a path-breaking vehicle for the company.
