Maruti Grand Vitara Vs Toyota Hyryder

The very lucrative mid-size SUV market is now controlled by the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and many more. Two major debuts in the nation are the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara and the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. Here are the key differences.


The most noticeable distinctions are found on the exterior. These vehicles have a drastically changed front end in terms of the grille, headlamp housing, and cladding. If you’re searching for something flamboyant, go with Toyota, but if you want something more refined, go with Maruti. Both of these SUVs seem fairly similar when viewed from the side, but when you move around to the back, you’ll notice some key differences. Each SUV has a similar sleek design for its LED taillights. The Vitara’s lights are separated by a stylish light bar, whereas the Toyota employs a chrome trim piece. The Grand Vitara and the Hyryder are two quite different SUVs, and Maruti edges out the competition here.

Specifications and Mileage

Both the 1.5-litre K15C petrol engine with moderate hybrid technology and the 1.5-litre TNGA Atkinson petrol engine with powerful hybrid technology power the new SUVs. The mild hybrid model can generate 103PS and 138Nm of torque. Both a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed torque convertor automatic are available, the latter of which has paddle shifters. The AWD system, which is standard on the manual models, has four different settings: Auto, Sand, Snow, and Lock.

The self-charging, powerful hybrid drivetrain seen in Toyota SUVs is standard on both of these models. The power output from this motor is 92.45PS, with a maximum of 115.5PS and 122Nm of torque. A continuously variable transmission (e-CVT) similar to that seen on the international Yaris Cross hybrid is standard.

Supposedly, the new SUVs can achieve 21.11kmpl when equipped with a manual transmission. The MT AWD gets 19.38kmpl on the highway while the AT FWD achieves 20.58kmpl. An ARAI-verified 27.97kmpl fuel efficiency is promised for the hybrid model.


The cabins of these vehicles all appear to be very standard. When compared to the Hyryder, whose finish is black and brown, the Vitara’s colour scheme consists of black, black and tan. The two have the same 9-inch infotainment system, leather upholstery, seat ventilation, and head-up display. The breathtaking view from the panoramic sunroof is the main attraction. It allows a lot of natural light to enter the cabin and visually expands the space. In addition, the sunroof opening is enormous; it is the largest in the market.


Smart hybrid trims are mild-hybrid Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitaras. Sigma, Delta, Zeta, and Alpha trims are available. 5-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter automatic transmissions are offered. Maruti Suzuki offers Suzuki ALLGRIP with the Alpha version.

Grand Vitara Alpha costs Rs 16.89 lakh with ALL GRIP SELECT, MT transmission, and monotone paint; with dual-tonne paint, it costs Rs 17.05 lakh. Without AWD, it costs Rs 15.39 lakh (MT) and Rs 16.89 lakh (AT).

The standard Sigma model with manual transmission and monotone paint costs Rs 10.45 lakhs ex-showroom. Delta costs Rs 11.90 lakh with a manual gearbox and Rs 13.40 lakh with an automatic. Top-spec Zeta with smart hybrid tech costs Rs 13.89 lakh with a manual gearbox and Rs 15.39 lakh with dual-tone paint.

Toyota’s mild-hybrid Neo Drive may be had with manual or automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive, exactly like the Grand Vitara. The base E version costs Rs 10,48,000. The S model costs Rs 12.28 lakh with manual and Rs 13.48 lakh with AT. Toyota Hyryder G MT costs Rs 14.34 lakh and AT costs Rs 15.54 lakh.
