The MPV derived from the Toyota Innova Highcross has been officially named ‘Invict’ after recent rumours about the name ‘Maruti Engage’. It is said to be the automaker’s latest flagship. The new Maruti Invicto MPV will debut on July 5th and is expected to hit the market on the same day.
What would it look like?
The Maruti Invicto is nearly identical to the Toyota Innova Hycross, but recently released spy shots show some brand-specific changes to distinguish the two. These include 3-piece LED headlights and taillights and a new grille design with two chrome strips connecting the headlights. There is a high possibility that new aluminium wheels will also be installed.
The interior dashboard layout is similar to the Toyota MPV, but may have a new cabin theme.
Equipment installed in Maruti MPV
Invict is supposed to get the same equipment list as Toyota. This includes premium features such as a 10-inch touchscreen device, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, digital driver display and power tailgate.
Occupant safety is ensured by up to six airbags, vehicle stability control (VSC) and front and rear parking sensors, making it the first Maruti to offer Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
A Choice Of Two Petrol Powertrains
The Maruti replacement for the Toyota Innova Highcross will have the same powertrain options. The MPV comes standard with a 2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine (174 hp / 205 Nm) and his CVT automatic transmission. No manual option. The Toyota MPV also features a powerful hybrid powertrain using a 186 hp (combined) 2-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. Combined with the E-CVT, it delivers an efficiency of over 21 km/h.
How much will it cost?
We expect the automaker to price the Invict at Rs 1.9 lakh (excluding showrooms). The only direct rival is the Toyota Innova Highcross, which puts it between Kia Carens and Carnival.
