The country’s largest automaker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, is preparing to launch its most expensive model yet in the coming months. We are talking about the premium MPV Maruti Suzuki Engage. This upcoming MPV is another of his badged models co-developed with fellow Japanese auto giant Toyota Kirloskar Motors. The Engage MPV is based on the Toyota Innova Hycross, with minor external adjustments to distinguish it from the Innova Hycross. A video recently surfaced online showing what this newest Maruti Suzuki MPV looks like.
A video rendering of this upcoming MPV has been shared by Barawala Designs on their YouTube channel. The video begins with the front of the Engage MPV. In the video, we can see that the front grille of the Toyota Innova Hicross has been replaced with that of Maruti Suzuki’s current flagship, the Grand Vitara. Additionally, the Toyota badging has been replaced with a Suzuki badging and a new signature Maruti Suzuki chrome stripe has been added to the grille. Other than that, the front end is essentially identical to that of the previous Toyota Innova Highcross.
In terms of the side profile of the rendered car, not much has changed, the only big difference you can notice is the different sets of alloy wheels. The redesigned MPV’s alloy wheels are the same as those currently offered on the Grand Vitara. Nothing has changed on the Engage rendering backend except for adding the chrome stripes and the Suzuki logo. Aside from exterior changes, there are no major changes inside this upcoming MPV, keeping all the amenities and features of the Toyota Innova Highcross mostly intact.
Maruti Suzuki Engage Expected Front Look
In terms of features, we can expect the Indo-Japanese carmaker Maruti Suzuki to offer a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a digital driver’s display, dual-zone temperature control, and ventilated front seats in the Maruti premium MPV. Additionally, a panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, a 360-degree camera, and connected car technology are likely to be included. Meanwhile, on the safety front, the car could come equipped with front and rear parking sensors, up to six airbags, ABS with EBD, vehicle stability control (VSC), a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and ADAS features, including lane-keeping and departure aid, adaptive cruise control, and auto-emergency braking.
As for the powertrain side of things, the premium MPV Engage will most likely be available from Maruti Suzuki with the same drivetrain choices as the Innova Hycross. This suggests that the 2.0-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and the 2.0-litre petrol-hybrid engine will be the two powerplant options for this MPV. The naturally aspirated petrol engine delivers 173 hp and 209 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the Innova Hycross’s 2.0-litre petrol hybrid powertrain reaches a maximum output of 184 horsepower and a full fuel consumption of 23.24 km/h.
