Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara engine specs
The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara will be offerd with two engine options. The first is a 1.5-litre mild hybrid system that develops 100 bhp and 135 Nm of peak torque with the help of a 5-speed manual or an AT. The other offering is a 1.5-litre strong hybrid engine paired to an e-CVT, the same seen in the Toyota Hyryder. The engine makes 114 bhp of power. The carmaker also claims a mileage of 27.97 kmpl, the highest in its class, and also the most fuel-efficient SUV in India.
The new Vitara will be available with Suzuki’s All-Grip AWD system, which automatically distributes the torque to the rear wheels when it detects a slip. Also, the AWD option makes it the only other SUV in the mid-size segment to get an AWD feature, apart from the Toyota Hyryder. The All-Grip system features four modes: Auto, Snow, Sport, and Lock, the latter which keeps the front and rear axles engaged all the time.
