- Starts from Rs. 24.79L
- Three variants
- Most expensive Maruti till date
Maruti has launched the Invicto MPV at a price of Rs. 24.79 Lakhs (Ex-showoroom). The MPV is a badge-engineered version of the Toyota Innova Hycross and shares its underpinnings with the same. It is also the priciest Maruti to ever go on sale in India and will be sold through their premium NEXA chain of dealerships.
Maruti Invicto Design
The Maruti Invicto shares most of its styling with the Innova Hycross, although Maruti has made some changes to differentiate it. Starting from the front, the Invicto gets a new grille with dual horizontal chrome slats encasing a Suzuki logo. Moreover, Maruti has given it a new bumper as well which takes help of a faux skid plate and black cladding to make it look aggressive. From the pictures, it also seems like Maruti has given the fog lamps a miss unlike the Hycross. Moving on towards the side profile, there have been no notable changes except the new design for the 17 inch alloy wheels and the absence of a hybrid badge under the ORVMs
At the rear too, changes have been minimal. The taillights on the Invicto get new detailing inside with 3 blocks to bring it in line with other NEXA models. It also gets new badges. Besides these, the Invicto remains identical to the Hycross from a styling perspective.
