The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is available in a total of six wide versions: Sigma, Delta, Zeta, Alpha, Zeta Plus and Alpha Plus. Prices for the new compact SUV range from Rs 10.45 lakh to Rs 19.65 lakh (ex-showroom). We managed to get some photos of the Grand Vitara’s base trim. And if you’ve seen one before, here are all the details of the entry-level variant in five images:
The entry-level variant of the Grand Vitara looks perfectly identical to the standard model from the front. However, you get halogen projector headlamps instead of the LED units found in higher-end variants. In profile, the SUV rolls on steel wheels with plastic covers, while connected LED taillights complete the overall design.
Inside, the compact SUV adopts the black/brown theme as is the case for all mild hybrid variants. Although there is no infotainment system offered, Maruti has provided this version with steering-mounted audio controls, which can be programmed with aftermarket units. Additionally, the entry-level SUV is upholstered in fabric, as opposed to the leatherette seat covers in the higher-end variants.

Other notable features include automatic climate control, keyless entry with push-button start, color multi-information display, electronically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, and rear air vents. Passenger safety is provided by two airbags, electronic stability control, hill hold assist and rear parking sensors. Decently equipped, we would say.
The entry-level variant only gets the 103bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. This engine can be equipped with an automatic transmission as an option and an all-wheel drive in the top-of-the-range versions. Maruti also offers the Grand Vitara with a powerful hybrid gasoline engine of 116 hp and 1.5 liters.
The entry-level Grand Vitara trim is priced at Rs 10.45 lakh (ex-showroom) and battles with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, VW Taigun, MG Astor and Toyota Hyryder. You can also consider it on SUVs under 4 meters like the Maruti Brezza and the Tata Nexon.
