Maruti teases front-end of Grand Vitara in a new teaser video

Maruti Suzuki is all set for the launch of their brand new mid-size SUV Grand Vitara in India. The manufacturer has been teasing us with several videos and images recently. Pre-bookings for the upcoming Grand Vitara has already started and customers can pre-book the SUV at Nexa dealerships by making an initial payment of Rs 11,000. Before the official unveiling of the SUV on 20 July 2022, Maruti Suzuki has now released a new teaser video for the Grand Vitara where the front-end of the SUV has been teased.

Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara will be offered as the flagship model from the brand in India. It is a premium mid-size SUV which will compete with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq and Volkswagen Taigun. By now we all know that, this is an SUV which was jointly developed by Toyota and Maruti. Toyota earlier this month unveiled the Urban Cruiser Hyryder SUV and Grand Vitara is actually Maruti’s version of Hyryder.

The teaser video released by Nexa shows a different front-end styling for Grand Vitara when compared with Hyryder. It looks like the Grand Vitara will get a much more aggressive or muscular styling at the front. Front grille gets a plastic panel which is similar to the one seen on the new Brezza. Below that is a wide and deep grille which adds to the overall SUV look of the car. The teaser also shows triple LED headlamps on the SUV. Unlike Toyota Hyryder, Grand Vitara is not getting a twin sleek LED DRL unit. The design of the LED DRL unit looks familiar to the one seen in the new generation Baleno.
