Maruti Suzuki, which bills itself as the “No. 1 Maker of SUVs,” plans to introduce up to three brand-new SUVs in the upcoming years. The three new SUVs will cater to various automotive segments. First to hit the road will be the Maruti eVX, then the Grand Vitara 7-seater and an A-segment SUV that rivals the Punch. What can we anticipate from these new Maruti SUVs? All of the details are available in today’s special piece.

Upcoming Maruti SUVs – Maruti eVX

Design and Features

The Maruti eVX, the company’s first electric SUV, is up first. Maruti has already presented the eVX idea twice, at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2023 and Auto Expo in 2023. A more production-ready model was displayed by the brand at the Tokyo Motor Show. With a futuristic interior design, it appears distinctive and modern. The SUV will also have a tonne of luxurious features. 

LED headlights and taillights, a 360-degree camera, touch-sensitive AC controls, a rotary gear lever, ambient lighting, a panoramic display housing a touchscreen system, and a digital instrument cluster are just a few of the features that the eVX is expected to have.  

Specifications & Launch

A 60kWh battery pack will power the eVX, and Toyota’s version will also be available with the same drivetrain. The aforementioned battery pack has a stated 550 km range, although, in practice, it should only provide 450–500 km. A base model with a 48kWh smaller battery pack will be available. About 400 kilometers would be the battery pack’s actual life range. 

In India, Maruti eVX testing has been observed on several occasions. Speaking of launch, the eVX is probably going to happen in September or October of 2024. The eVX will face competition from the soon-to-be-released Tata Curvv EV and Hyundai Creta EV.

Future Maruti SUVs: the seven-seater Grand Vitara

Exterior Design

Maruti would then introduce the Grand Vitara with seven seats. The brand has benefited greatly from the 5-seater SUV, and they anticipate a similar reaction with the 7-seater version as well. The seven-seater Grand Vitara is anticipated to have a front fascia akin to the existing model. On the seven-seater variant, though, we can see a different grille. To make room for the third row of seats, the side profile will essentially stay the same but be longer. It may also come with 18-inch alloy wheels in a variety of designs. There will be some changes to the back profile as well, however the connected LED taillamps will probably remain.

Interior and Features

We may anticipate that the inside of the seven-seater Grand Vitara will resemble that of the five-seater model. But Maruti might provide a brighter and lighter interior theme for a more upscale appearance. Now that the SUV has three rows, the final seat will have cup holders, USB charging connections, and dedicated AC vents. Rest assured, the Grand Vitara’s five seats will probably be carried over into the seven-seater model. Anticipate features include a digital instrument cluster, wireless charging, a 9.0-inch infotainment system, heated seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a 360-degree camera.


Regarding specifications, we can anticipate that Maruti would provide the 7-seater Grand Vitara with robust hybrid and 1.5-liter gasoline engine options. The 1.5-liter petrol engine is paired with a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter transmission, producing 101 horsepower and 137 Nm of torque. In contrast, the potent hybrid engine generates 122 Nm of torque and 113 horsepower. The powerful hybrid engine is paired with a single CVT gearbox. To support the additional seats, Maruti will need to make adjustments to the hybrid system.  

Launch & Price

The Grand Vitara, a seven-seater, is scheduled to go on sale in January or February 2025. Nevertheless, the seven-seater Grand Vitara is going to be somewhat pricey; we’re talking about around Rs 20 lakh to Rs 25 lakh (on-road, Mumbai). When the seven-seater Grand Vitara is introduced, it will compete with the Mahindra XUV700, Tata Safari, and the soon-to-be facelifted Hyundai Alcazar.

Future Maruti SUVs: Maruti’s Tata Punch Competitor

Given the popularity of the Tata Punch SUV in the B class, Maruti has announced plans to join the market to compete with the Punch SUV. With the Exter, Hyundai was the first to enter this segment, therefore Maruti will be the third. Speaking about Maruti, the company plans to introduce an SUV with a more conventional design to take on Punch and Exter. Up until now, the company has only concentrated on crossover-style SUVs in the sub-4 meter class, except the Brezza.

The Maruti Fronx’s platform, engine choices, and design characteristics are probably going to be included in the SUV. We may anticipate a large infotainment system, a 360-degree camera, a computerized instrument cluster, and other features. Regarding the launch schedule, Maruti’s small SUV is anticipated to arrive in dealerships by the end of 2026. Pricing should be about in line with those of its other compact competitor, with on-road prices in Mumbai starting at Rs 8 lakh and increasing up to Rs 13 lakh.
