When it comes to dimensions, the Invicto will measure the same as the Innova HyCross. The Invicto has a length of 4755mm, width of 1845mm, and 1785mm in height. The wheelbase of Maruti’s Premium MPV, Invicto is going to be 2850mm, ground clearance of 185mm, and boot space of 300 litres. The Invicto will have a fuel tank capacity of 52 litres, and kerb weight of 1,915 kg.
The Invicto’s Alpha Plus variant has features same as the HyCross’s ZX(O) Hybrid variant, like the ventilated seats, 360-degree camera, LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, 2-zone automatic climate control, digital instrument cluster, 10.1-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, 9-speaker JBL sound system, panoramic sunroof, powered driver’s seat, captain seats with ottoman function for second row passengers, ambient lighting, connected car tech, and ADAS with features such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), high beam assist, lane trace assist, blind spot monitoring system, rear cross traffic alert, and Pre-Collision System. In Safety, it has six airbags, TPMS, ABS with EBD, Traction Control, ISOFIX anchorages, Hill Assist, Hill Descent Control, and ESC.
Since, we were expecting the Invicto to have four variant that would bring the starting price at Rs. 25.50 lakh, but now we know it’ll be available in one variant, Alpha Plus, and therefore we expect the starting price to be Rs. 30 lakh. Maruti will be unveiling the Invicto MPV on July 5th followed by the price announcement. Kia recently discontinued the Carnival in India which will re-launch sometime in 2024 with the fourth-gen update that was seen at the Auto Expo 2023. This leaves the Maruti Invicto rival, the Toyota HyCross, the MPV that’s it based-on as its main competitor to determine which model performs better in sales.
