The Maruti Suzuki Invicto will feature a robust 2.0-liter strong hybrid powertrain, which combines a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine with an e-CVT gearbox. This powertrain configuration delivers an impressive maximum power output of 184 bhp.

In addition, the Invicto marks a significant milestone as the first Maruti Suzuki product derived from a Toyota vehicle. Previously, Toyota had introduced products based on Maruti Suzuki offerings, such as the Glanza, Urban Cruiser, and Urban Cruiser Hyryder.
