Maruti Suzuki begins exports of India-made Grand Vitara

In India, the Grand Vitara is available with 1.5L mild-hybrid, 1.5L strong-hybrid and CNG variants.

Maruti Suzuki has commenced exports of the Grand Vitara. The first shipment of the made-in-India Grand Vitara has been dispatched from the Kamarajar port destined for Latin America.

Maruti Suzuki now exports 17 models to overseas markets. In 2022, the carmaker shipped over 2.6 lakh vehicles to countries in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, ASEAN and neighbouring regions.

The Grand Vitara was launched in India back in September 2022. The SUV is available with two engine options. These include a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid that makes 102 BHP and 137 Nm and a 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder petrol strong-hybrid powertrain.

Earlier this year, Maruti also introduced CNG variants of the car. The Grand Vitara S-CNG is powered by a 1.5-litre engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. It develops 87 BHP and 121.5 Nm when running on CNG.
