Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

HyRyder prices were out a few weeks ago. Baleno doesn't undercut the Glanza, does it? Were we really expecting GV to be priced below the HyRyder?

They have priced it to ensure less bookings for mild hybrid variants. They would love to celebrate and market their success in strong hybrids and the coveted cutting-edge status. Remember they are lagging in the EV space.

I quite like the strong hybrid tech:

1. Range of 1000+ km on a single tank. Return from Nagpur while the green neighbour finds the charging point.

2. Petrol Engine is decoupled from inefficient drivers. Father-in-Law you are most welcome, take the key!

3. Engine better shielded from my 800m cafe rides, from stop-go city traffic or from coolant-leaked kind of scary conditions. Resale value boosted. Longevity/Reliability could be 2x or even 20x (Toyota-insiders please tell us the MTBF statistics).

3. Always working at maximum efficiency. Beat that dear RTOs.

4. Green-ish swag.

I perfectly understand your reasoning and although personally speaking I will be cancelling my booking, the car would fit the bill for a small family of 4 who are not looking to burn the tyres on the road but would rather prefer a fuss free ownership that is economical to run as well. However, my gripe is for someene with the above requirements, a Nexon or xuv300 would be a worthy contender too.
You end up saving quite a bit, plus you get 5* rating with much better performance (xuv300 mainly, Nexon would be decent) and wider rear cabin (Nexon). Yes, you would miss out on 6 air bags (I think xuv300 and Nexon have 4).
But I just dont see the VFM equation that one would normally associate with a Maruti. Looks are subjective, so wont go there.

Pardon my ignorance but please help me understand how is Grand Vitara mild hybrid without AWD a "true SUV"?

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

Would it make any sense to buy S-cross now?

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

Looks like Maruti will find it really hard to sell the Strong hybrid with that atrocious pricing. Perhaps their strategy was to price the strong hybrid high to make the regular petrol Vitara as a value deal(which too seems high considering the average specs)

Koreans will be laughing there as there is no real challenge to Creta/Seltos and they are even left with additional room in case they plan to offer their hybrid offerings.

I guess it is better to wait for hybrid to become a mainstream and then the price will start coming down.

I would rather go up a segment than spend 25lakhs on a Maruti (Bangalore OTR)

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

Yet another launch with absolutely no direct impact on Creta. The sheer number of cars that have been released in and around Creta and still not able to take on them directly is astounding. I mean Hyundai Management should be given the highest of rewards for bringing Creta to India.

Also, the response in Team-Bhp is a clear indication of who MSIL has as the target for Grand Vitara. Ever since the price reveal yesterday, we hardly have had 5 pages of comments. Compare this to the S-Cross launch when we had 5 pages added every 3-4 hours! MSIL is fully aware of the target audience who would want a decent SUV which is safe and a marginal competitor to Creta/Seltos.

In the long run, I feel the MSIL/Toyota Siblings should be able to attract close to 10K units put together.

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

On road price received from my RM at Nexa.

Heartbreak pricing, Delta automatic variant I was eyeing for at 16.3 Lacs on road. Suddenly overpriced Seltos and Creta have started looking like VFM options.

I am definitely canceling my booking.

It seems only variant they would sell is Sigma in manual which has everything except Alloys and Music System but as I wanted an Automatic hence its not on my cards.

Look at insurance prices... They make u laugh

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

With the pricing it’s clear Maruti & Toyota aren’t competing with the Koreans they are banking on subsidy or tax benefits which govt may bring in 2023 budget.

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

To me it looks like people looking at mid variants of Grand Vitara will simply opt for Brezza. Whereas people looking at higher variants have an option to either choose extremely high fuel efficiency or opt for Creta/Seltos and get powerful engines with much better interior quality. One even has the option to go for something from the above segment altogether at that price.

They could have atleast standardized 6 airbags in all their models for the price they are asking

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

Hi,

I am going to cancel the AWD variant that I had booked in July.

I'll rather go for Scorpio N or XUV 700 AX5(with a budget bit streched)

Strangely, I am not seeing any booking under my account when I logged into nexa website to cancel it(not sure if it was ever there in first place as I never cared to check).

I have dropped a mail to customer care for the same. Let's see.

Is anyone able to cancel their online booking?

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

The pricing seems commensurate within Maruti's own frame of Reference. , i.e. as compared to the recently launched Brezza (built on the same platform).

Outside their bubble though, this pricing might put a lot of people in dillema. Definitely not a hands down value proposition.

I was particularly interested in the AllGrip variant and was willing to overlook the lacklustre powertrain it comes with. I genuinely thought this would be the least expensive car that can be had with AWD/4WD. But suppose that's not the case anymore.
Maruti Grand Vitara Review-screenshot_20220928001025_chrome.jpg

Now analyze this-

A- Should one accept the Grand vitara AllGrip with all its flaws and virtues
B- Should one attempt to live with the ScorpioN MT 4WD with that big lumpy Diesel
Or C- Should one embrace that stonker 1.5 TSI in the Taigun GT and make peace with it

Disclaimer: Hardcore offroading enthusiasts-chill. My interest in AWD/4WD is limited to getting out of a few tricky situations here and there. So please don't bash me for comparing the ScorpioN with the Grand Vitara

P.S.: Even though it might not be suitable for my particular use case; couldn't help notice the sheer value the ScorpioN Z4 Diesel MT 4WD brings to the table at that price

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

Yes, definitely the prices are on higher side of the spectrum. But, for a person like me who doesn't want to fall into the BS6 diesel issues like DPF and all, the AWD version fits the bill as a tourer. I am a sedate driver and the peace of mind and reliability which MSIL brings to the table, I can't ignore it. Now, the wait begins for the Jimny as there are no petrol AWD available currently in this side of 40 lacs.( I can not opt for a Thar due to practicality issues). I hope Maruti prices the Jimny well and doesn't compromise on the safety features.

Not sure how the union budget can help. What is needed for lower pricing is a reduction in the GST. That can happen in any council meeting. The union budget's only lever is extending the EV tax break which is anyway not much.
